YES PLEASE! All advice on the hydraulic adjustments very welcome.
Also, I have found a hydraulic supplies specialist just down the road, and they can do a hydraulic gauge for much less than I thought (a lot less than another new cylinder, anyway) but I don't know:
a) what fitting I should ask them to put on the end, or
b) where the port is to take the reading from
Sorry to add 2 more questions, but having come this far I'd like to do it as right as I can.
Hope your entertaining went well (is this ladyfriend painted mostly red and grey with a taste for diesel or the other sort that prefers white wine?)
