Since the ram arm is split, replacement is straight forward once the upper lift arms have been removed, which may require heat, and the lift cover has been removed.

Be sure to replace the cam follower pin, lift cylinder O-ring and back-up washer, and rock shaft bushings while the lift cover is off. I would also flip the rock shaft end for end.

Purchase of an I & T FO-20 manual before starting is advised.

would overload be what caused the arm to split..? or just old age and wear and tear, and is there anything else that typicaly would be damaged, other than the things you listed, and where is a good place to get that manual ?
thanks so much... its the blind leading the blind here, :)

Shock loading, e.g., bouncing along over rough terrain with a lifted heavy load, is the most likely cause of damage, though there are other potential causes.

The FO-20 manual is readily available on the internet, probably including this site.

I always completely rebuild and readjust the lift cover anytime that it is removed. Procedures for doing so are in the manual.
