I finished up a major servicing project to my GT20 over the past month. A pair of items I could not locate are replacement rods for the power steering and lift cylinders. The rods are severely damaged due to dirt. Looks to me that whoever designed the cylinders forgot to design in the 50 cent rod wiper, which would have significantly reduced the wear.
Has anybody found a replacement cylinder for either steering or lift?
Has anybody designed a front cap that includes the rod seal and a wiper seal?
Does anybody have the dimensions or know of a machine shop that has duplicated the original rod design?
Local hydraulic shops can machine just one part, but that is expensive... Would anybody else be interested in replacement rods? I am contacting a hydraulic machine shop and having them turn out a couple replacement rods.
Thanks in advance!
