That is indeed one fine looking machine.
Just so you know though yesterday was Thursday not Saturday.

I ran a search but didn't see what I was looking for. I am currently in the middle of switching from electric to hydraulic lift on my 216. I've been following the instruction sheet as best I can, but since it was written for converting from a manual lift, i'm running into a few issues. I'm at the point where I need to install the hydraulic ram into the tractor, but I can't figure out how to get the electric ram out. The instructions reference parts I don't see in my tractor, and I don't see how the front part of the electric lift comes out. It looks to me like all the pieces are welded. So can anyone who has done this swap tell me what I'm missing?
Thanks

Josh, the front part is the lift shaft the manual lever would go it? It has a small bolt on the rockshaft arm, just above the pin that goes through the cylinder. Remove that bolt, and it will free up a tab, use that tab to unscrew the front pin. That pin is actually threaded together. Lefty loosey as always. If the rear pin is the same as the hydraulic one, it has 3 cotter pins that all needed to come out. Its kind of a jigsaw puzzle. Also having the rear tire and fender pan off makes it easier.
