Does anyone know how to remove the hydraulic lift cylinder? There is a shaft that is threaded on both ends (one end connects through the top of lift cylinder rod, the other end connects through the top of the damper cylinder rod) which runs through the engine mounting bracket but I can't get it to budge. I need the cylinder free to replace the hydraulic line connection band that runs around the top of the cylinder. I taken the strain off the engine so there is no weight on the shaft but I'm stymied as to why I can't get it to move.

Obama is not a brown-skinned anti-war socialist who gives away free healthcare. You're thinking of Jesus.

I haven't tried this, but you could try using the nut on one end and a series of washers to ease it out a little at a time. Soak all the contact points with penetrating oil a few hours before starting. Remove the hardware from both ends of the shaft. On one end, place an additional washer that is large enough for the shaft the pass through, then the #19 washer and then tighten the nut. Hopefully, the shaft will come out the thickness of that extra washer. Remove the nut and #19 washer, add another large washer, etc. Work slowly, and wiggle the motor up and down as you tighten the nut.
