    yeah i have a unimoumt 7.6 pro poly check and see this over time from storage the main lift cylinder packing is probably shrunk and needed to be lubricated aleast that what happened to mine. First I sprayed the !@###$@@!#!out of it with PB blaster around entire lift cyl and packing nut where the packing is did that twice and le tit sit a day or two sprayed it again and let it sit then sprayed it finaly with FLUID FILM WHICH IS FRICKEN AWSOME only did that after I got my can from Fluid film . TRY that and se if that helps plus clean out all your plug pins and make sure they are clean and recoat them with dielectric grease Hope this is of some help DMAC
