LIFT CYLINDER REPLACEMENT (Continued).
Drive upper lift cylinder pin (3) out from hangers through access hole in gooseneck wall to
free upper portion of lift cylinder.
As cylinder pin is driven out, maintain sufficient tension on chain hoist
supporting upper portion of lift cylinder so that cylinder does not
suddenly shift as pin is removed.
Using heavy rope, secure around piston of lift cylinder to restrain movement of lower
portion of cylinder when lower pin is removed.
Do not use a chain to restrain movement of piston as a chain may score
or damage piston surface.
Remove bolt and nut securing lower lift cylinder pin (4), drive out pin and raise hoist to
remove lift cylinder.
