I had to remove the hydraulic control shaft on my 41". 9N and ever since it doesn"t stay up , like it did before. As I recall the plate did not want to release and it took a long time before it did. That was 6 months or so ago.
I did get a friction pad, but the center hole is too small for the shaft. Also, there is 1-1.5 inches of in and out play with the control shaft. I am wondering if the original removal of the control shaft and plate had streched something to cause the play. I would appreciate any help with this and once I locate my camera I"ll put a couple of pictures up.
Happy Easter, William
