Manitou MVT 1340 L:
MVT 1340L CAN'T GET TELESCOPIC BOOM TO COME APART. Hoses are leaking and need to replace them

I have hydraulic hoses leaking inside of my boom and can't seem to get the boom to come apart. This is a 3 section unit with the front section having a cylinder inside of the front portion, with a exterior cylinder on top of the boom moving the middle section. I have the front of the inside cylinder pin out and thought it would side out. I have 2 skid steer loaders supporting the beam and can pull it out straight but it is catching somewhere. I have the poly wear slides off and can;t see what is catching and don't want to put to much pressure on it for fear of breaking something. I can't seem to find a service manual on line and the local dealers are not really repair people. Thank you guys in advance for your help.
