Not a stupid question at all........and I'm not sure if I have an answer but in looking at one of mine I would think that maybe the end unthreads?
I just took a 99 loader off of a TO-35 I recently bought.
The manual I have only talks about the 2 way cylinder but it does say to remove end cap then tap bearing (bushing) back as far as you can away from lock ring, remove the lock ring. This is for the dump cylinder.
For the lift cylinder it says remove end cap and remove bearing.
It also notes to make sure there is no pressure on the cylinder.......probably goes without saying but it's probably pretty good advice!
