Thank You, that answers some a question, at the end of the cylinder is a short rod coming from the linkage toward the cylinder and I see that is correct. Now I have to locate the pin that holds the connecting rod in place.

Did the piston come out of the cylinder? If not, the "short rod" did its job.

In any event, always replace the cam follower pin and Piston O-ring and back-up washer anytime the lift cover is removed. After doing this, readjust the linkage using the alternative (special tools not needed) procedures in the FO-20 manual. If you find insufficient threads on the turnbuckle to achieve proper draft control adjustment, replace the draft control fork.

You should thoroughly clean the sump and replace the hydraulic oil.

Ok, Got the problem almost resolved, however there is a concern. The pin holding the connecting rod in place is gone, I cant find it anywhere, I have drained the case and looked all around inside, looked all over the top cover. Is there any possibility that it could have traveled into the transmission or the axle. I would really like to find it before it damages something else. You would think that a 5/16" x 2 1/8" pin would turn up quite easily.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to seenot into transmission or axle on that model. I don't know if into suction line is possible or not...someone probably knows.
