I have a john deere 482C forklift with a lift cylinder that just started leaking out the top. The cylinder is 8 ft tall. I removed the cylinder and layed it across the forks on my shop forklift. I removed the end cap to remove the cylinder rod. I can't get the rod out of the cylinder. When I removed the cap just below the treads is a sleeve of some kind that looks like it is made of brass. I can move the rod back and forth easily, but it won't come out of the cylinder bore. It hits the sleeve on the end and stops. I fastened a chain to the end of the ram, pushed it back and gave it a good jerk. It hits the end sleeve and that's it. There's a weld around the cylinder about 3 inches from the end. I'm wondering if maybe the sleeve is a supposed to move. I have a seal kit ordered. I went to a local JD dealer, but they have never worked on one. The picture the parts guy showed me wasn't much help, but it showed a seal below the sleeve. A repair manual is over 100 bucks and I don't know if it contains anything of use.

The cylinder rod on the 1207/17s have a snap ring in a groove. You work through the fluid port with a screwdriver to push the ring into a deeper groove.

I worked on one someplace where you would tap the sleeve in to expose and internal snap ring in the barrel.

Does the cylinder version you have use the retaining bolt, Key #7, and have you removed it?

Yes,it has that bolt and I removed it. My cylinder is a little bit different. The end is flat with two holes to faster it to the boom.
