All,

Is there an easy way to get that little bugger out and replace it? Mine is worn pretty bad and my lift doesn't lift all they way up.

TIA!

Once you get the linkage in hand with the cam pin in it, lay it over a socket just bigger than the pin, and then get a punch and drive the old pin out, and then flip over and drive the new pin in.

Some people cheat, if their pin isn't too bad, they will just grab it with vice grips and turn it till the flat spot goes to a side, and a new round is on the cam.. etc.

Support the linkage under the pin when you drive it out. Use a punch of the correct size. If it mushroomed out when it was being installed, you might have to grind a portion of the pin off above the link.

Know what you mean about turning it around...but since I'll have the cover off to replace the lift cylinder (all ate up on the inside, works for now though) and put new orings/gaskets on the piston, I'll go ahead and do it right. The pin is about 5 bucks and I really, really don't want to have to go into the lift cover again ifn I don't have to. Thanks for all of your support!!!

Mine had a tack weld on it, had to drill it out and replace it. I got a hardened pin from Ace hardware for less than a buck. I have a couple if you cant find one.

Do you have the sizes available? I remember reading somewhere (John Smith's site I think) that the ones at the hardware are just a bit larger than the original...someting like .3125 instead of .309.

I also need to replace my cam follower pin, but do I need to worry about the grove that's worn into the cam portion? Do I need to fill the grove with something like JB weld and then fill it smooth or should I juse leave it alone?

Post this under a new topic. I have that concern too. It seems like the consensus is to use a slightly longer pin (approx 1/8" longer)...
