@jbanks15 - there's 11 videos from Klaus now Jeff, two more added end of Feb. Approx 1hr 45mins total, so much better than an afternoon movie

replaced cylinders

Hey there,

I just got my cylinders reinstalled. I had found the Top Hydraulics vids on the "Tube". Great step by step instruction and what to look for. I had a couple of questions for Klaus. He replied same evening! FAST TURN AROUND!! I sent them in on a Saturday and received them back the following Wednesday! Keep in mind we are in the same state and a few hours away. With the help of the videos it only took me a few hours to uninstall and a few hours to reinstall. Maybe half a day each! With out the headaches. Very helpful.
Now about that darn mini switch....
