This is crazy because my brother and I replaced the seals on the left cyl about 10 years ago. For the life of me I can't remember how to get the cylinder rod out. Can anybody please refresh my poor old memory?

Thanks
Les

PC 4187 for a 2350 lists 2 different style steering cylinders with no SN break. Later style has a snap ring on inside that I think keeps rod from coming out of tube. Earlier style cylinder I have not clue how to disassemble.

I think I have the model with snap ring. When you try to pull the rod out it makes a firm metal to metal contact. I think the end cap of the cyl assy has to unscrew but it won"t budge, and the uppper and lower allen screws when removed only allow you to see the chrome rod.

If the cyl is similar to a combine header cyl one removes the plug to unsnap ring through the hole. Not fun but can be accomplished.

I understand, but the rod stops before you can see the snap ring, and it looks like you could only replace the seals from the inside not the outside. I just don't get it.

Had to do this on a 2750 couple years back. Remove the hose fitting from the cylinder. Slide the piston until you can see the snap ring thru the hole where the hose fitting goes. Use a small screwdriver or something similar to work the snap ring off the piston. Reverse procedure to put snap ring back on. Going back on is HARDER.

Thanks a million, that explains a lot. I guess the allen screws are for draining and bleeding air out of the cylinder itself. I knew I couldn't see a ring from those holes. Years back we may have found out by accident but I'll bet a kind person like you gave us the clue.

Thanks for all ya'lls help

Thanks for all your help and advice TX Jim, looks like in this case it was the fitting instead of the plug. Maybe this will help a lot more people.

Glad some one got you on right track. Lot's of water has run under the bridge since I've seen a cylinder similar to yours when I was a JD SM.

Hey you were right just had the wrong hole. And I should be kicked for not remembering just 10 years back. But at 64 the ole brain just won't work like it used to.

Did confirm access tonight and will try to remove ring this weekend. I have a pair of heavy duty snapring pliers with long (like needlenose) ends that may work like a charm.

Thanks again
Les
