    The Hydraulic Top Cover was removed to rectify the reason why the upper lift arms didnt move, the water had seeped through and seized the bushes to the shaft, a 50t

    press was used to push out the cross shaft and heat applied at the same time, all moved with a huge bang, the shaft and bushes with the rubber seals are always

    replaced and coated with copper grease to help remove the shaft in the future, should the need ever arise again. The final drive and all other casings were cleaned out all

    outside rust removed by blast cleaning, rebuilding has commenced.
