This is crazy because my brother and I replaced the seals on the left cyl about 10 years ago. For the life of me I can't remember how to get the cylinder rod out. Can anybody please refresh my poor old memory?

Thanks Les

Glad some one got you on right track. Lot's of water has run under the bridge since I've seen a cylinder similar to yours when I was a JD SM.

Hey you were right just had the wrong hole. And I should be kicked for not remembering just 10 years back. But at 64 the ole brain just won't work like it used to.

Did confirm access tonight and will try to remove ring this weekend. I have a pair of heavy duty snapring pliers with long (like needlenose) ends that may work like a charm.

Thanks again Les

Had to do this on a 2750 couple years back. Remove the hose fitting from the cylinder. Slide the piston until you can see the snap ring thru the hole where the hose fitting goes. Use a small screwdriver or something similar to work the snap ring off the piston. Reverse procedure to put snap ring back on. Going back on is HARDER.

Thanks a million, that explains a lot. I guess the allen screws are for draining and bleeding air out of the cylinder itself. I knew I couldn't see a ring from those holes. Years back we may have found out by accident but I'll bet a kind person like you gave us the clue.

Thanks for all ya'lls help Les

If the cyl is similar to a combine header cyl one removes the plug to unsnap ring through the hole. Not fun but can be accomplished.

Thanks for all your help and advice TX Jim, looks like in this case it was the fitting instead of the plug. Maybe this will help a lot more people. Les

I understand, but the rod stops before you can see the snap ring, and it looks like you could only replace the seals from the inside not the outside. I just don't get it.

I think I have the model with snap ring. When you try to pull the rod out it makes a firm metal to metal contact. I think the end cap of the cyl assy has to unscrew but it won"t budge, and the uppper and lower allen screws when removed only allow you to see the chrome rod.

PC 4187 for a 2350 lists 2 different style steering cylinders with no SN break. Later style has a snap ring on inside that I think keeps rod from coming out of tube. Earlier style cylinder I have not clue how to disassemble.

Today's Featured Article - Fordson Model N: Field Service Operations and Lubrication - by Anthony West. The daily or weekly servicing of any vehicle is of the utmost importance, and in days gone by when our favorite tractors were doing an important and Commercially vital job on the farm, these service operations would make a major difference to the running costs and economy of the farm. This being so, it surprises me to see how many enthusiasts attending rallies, shows etc, seem to be unaware of the importance of this constant attention. Possibly the modern machine with its 6,000 mile or even once ... [Read Article]
