I can see that a nut has been welded on. Is it the cause of my hookup problem??:confuse:

This does not look like the correct cylinder to me. I am not saying this is your hook up problem but it could be. My 16 is about 40 miles from where I live, I may be able to get you a pic of mine this weekend??
Thanks

This isn't a Massey cylinder for sure. But did this cylinder come with the tiller? Looks way too large to have been substituted for the deck lift cylinder.

I am not the 16 expert that Dan is but that looks like Hyster or Yale yellow possibly Cat if it spent some time in the sun. Application? (Tilt Cylinder)
I am sure Massey has never used the color on any of there GTs.
Also the cylinder has been Modified on the rod end.
It is also a larger diameter than the stock cylinder.
If you can make it work it should lift anything you put behind the tractor.

The OE mid-lift cylinder is only about 2" diameter max with a stroke of about 4 to 4 1/2".

I just measured it..3" diameter 6" stroke. It does work, just wanted to know if it was correct.

A picture would be great!! If you have your tiller mounted, I would also like to see your mounting points, and how your rear hydraulic cylinder is connected.

Thanks.

Your retracted length and the extend length are not correct.
Could deadhead against some thing break or bend.
Then you might:sensored:

You didn't clarify, but is this cylinder also serving for the deck lift? I don't see how it would fit under there at all. OR, is this cylinder simply plumbed into the same lines that feed the mid mount lift, and the mid mount lift is STILL in place?

I have 2 cylinders mounted..one on the belly, and the one in the photo of the rear end. For sure its plumbed into the line for the mid mount lift. Is that correct??

Massey had a capped off port just for such additions, so yes, that is correct. The cylinder for the tiller is not factory, but if it works & dead ends on it's stroke before reaching the limits of travel of the tiller, then it will be fine.

I honestly can't say, as I've never owned a tiller like it. Had an MF14, but no tiller. You need to find how much stroke is needed for full raised position to whatever depth you want to till. Bore is not critical, as even just a 1" bore cylinder would pick the tiller up.
