Hyster E30XL:
Removing Power Steering Cylinder

Hi all, first post here in a couple of years. We have a Hyster E30XL at work that started leaking fluid out of the Power steering cylinder. So we're looking for help getting the cylinder tie rods off the steering knuckle. We have the pins out (after several hours) and the tie rods are loose on the knuckle brackets but we can't get them to come out. What is the secret to removing them? Is there some kind of channel that the knuckle has to be turned a certain way and the tie rod just slides out? We did try to turn the knuckle so the tie rod was perpendicular but that didn't seem to do anything. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for any help.

It appears we just weren't using enough muscle. I pried them both off this morning.

Thanks for the reply Scott. I'm attaching a photo of the knuckle we are having trouble getting off. It is lose on the steering knuckle but will not come away from it. There is no nut holding the tie rod, just the single pin on either side. Is this what you thought we had?

If you removed the two pins to the tie rod to the steering axle then the tie rod were the pin was should pull out to you that will release the tie rod than take the nut off the tie rod and hit the joint to separate
