    How do you get the actuall packing out? I got the nut off, but not the packing. Do I have to pull out the whole lift cylinder?

    Thanks

    Make sure you do not let any dirt get in to your ram..

    You have the gland nut off of the end of the cyl.
    Next pull the stinger out of the cyl.

    Remove nut from end of stinger replace the seals reassemble.

    Lube up the seals before reassembly.
