Early 80s h16xt with the briggs opposed and enough hours that the engine was rebuilt at some point. Lift cylinder started leaking, or i assume so. Hard to see up there with the deck on but after a hard week plowing and cultivating, lot of heavy implement lifting, i found a decent leak underneath overnight.
Of course this was after i remounted the deck, i need the tractor for mowing right now, as long as i don't lift or lower the deck it isn't leaking. just want to know what to expect come fall when i remove the deck and get ready for snow plowing, when the blade will be going up and down 50 times an hour.
Can these lift cylinders be rebuilt, or is there someplace to get a replacement? And how hard is it to remove? Would it be easier to pull the fender pan and go in from the top? thanks for any help
