The first thing you need to do is take the cover off the big nut and remove it while the turret is down.

Putting the piston back in. All the quad rings can be purchased from McMaster Carr just measure the id or od of the ring.

Hello John,

Great job, and great documentation of the work. With that step by step no one should by shy about tackling the job if need be. Of course it helps to know you are there if trouble shows up!

Hi Rick,

The only trouble I ran into taking it that far apart was getting the ratchet timed. What I had to do was assemble all but the tool plate then fire the lock then the lift and rotate to bring it into alignment. Release the air from the lift and rotate then install the tool plate. This got me into mechanical alignment. Then I just spun the magnet around the encoder till the correct number showed up in my HAL watch window and locked it down.
