Thanks, ya'll. I was reading Bob from Australia's post and realized I haven't updated this thread lately, so here goes.

I pulled the top cover off to check out the hydraulic system, and found LOTS of rust on the linkage.


The lift control yoke was so bad I got another one from a guy in Texas who's parting out a TO20. Here's another pic of the the old one, if you look closely you can see how the holes that the clevis pins go through are all wallered out and the metal was too thin and rusted to try to fix it.


I popped the piston out of the cylinder and cleaned all the watered up gunk off of the parts. The cylinder had a little scoring, so I honed it a little bit. I'm keeping the original piston and rings. They both looked OK.


I figured I might as well pull the lift arms off, and here's the rig I used to do that.


Problem is, it didn't work. Those are 5/8" studs that bent trying to pull the arms. I was using a rosebud tip on a torch to heat the arm while we were pulling, and it didn't budge a millimeter. So, I said to heck with it, and left them on.
