Used the N today for about 1 1/2 hours..The most I have used it since I got it in Sept. after 1 1/2 hours I raised the lift then disengaged the PTO to come to the house, only 400 feet or so. By the time I was home the lift with the finishing mower had fallen down considerably..When it is first cranked or after short use the lift will stay up for 20- 30 minutes at least...Next time I have it hot, pull the side cover and check for a stream from the top Right???? Also check relief valve for turbulence in the bottom of the pump area?? What else??

Here's a few things to consider. If your lift will stasy up 10-20 mins.. heck.. 5 minutes.. it's mor eor less in 'good shape' The amount of oil behind that lift piston is about a cup or so. If there is a leak at the piston that takes 5" minutes to go down.. it will only be a drip-drip leak. My lift used to go down in less than a minute. A new lift piston/oring and relief valve fixed that. Stays up a day or more now.

Take a look.. won't cost ya anything but time.

( me.. I'd not tear into it if it stayed up 10-20 mins.. but then.. if ya want it to stay up it's usually less than a hundred bucks for a good go-thru, pump gaskets, valve and all. Less than 200 for all that plus a new cylinder ( your cyl sounds good ).

If ya work on it steady.. might be an 8 hour job if ya drop the pump and all. Took me 9hrs over a 3 day weekend. No rocket science.. just a few tools, and a handfull of parts.. and a bit of greasy work and some heavy lifting... If ya just do the top half.. 4-5 hrs in and out maybee?

Thanks, I'm going to use it a few more times then decide. I already have another good used cylinder or two and a new NAA piston,O-ring and backup washer. Also already have the gasket set(top). Thanks again

Sounds like you only need the 3 small gaskets under the lift cyl, and the side inspection cover gasket ( rtv is FINE for the round cover gasket) And possibly a relief valve if it's an issue. ( probably isn't ).. so.. for about a 1.50$ in extra gaskets plus the parts you have and some sweat equity.. you are good to go whichever way you decide, assuming no pump damage, like a leaky chamber.. etc.
