First time to post here. I have a LGT 165 that has a leaking hydraulic cylinder. I'm trying to remove the cylinder to repair/replace and am stumped on how to remove. There is not enough clearance to remove the upper connection. It looks like I need to move the hydraulic lift arm inboard on its shaft app. 2 inches to gain the clearance. I have removed the cotter pin and set screw, but no luck in getting it to move.
I have been spraying PB Blaster into the set screw hole as well as the slot for the key on the shaft and have tried prying with a bar,but so far no luck. Has anyone else run into this problem and how did you solve it?
I have not tried heat yet, I'm thinking that may have to come next.
Thanks in advance for any ideas or suggestions!
