Clark GPX30:
Tilt cylinder removal

Recently my GPX30 Clark started leaking oil from the tilt cylinders. Leaking enough now to get them resealed. Yes I need to power wash the areas first before I remove them. The front pins look easy enough to remove. But I am not familiar with the removal of the rear pins. They have a large hex on them with a threaded hole in the center. Can anyone chime in on how these are removed before I dig into this?

Thanks, James

Everything back together. Had to hammer new spherical bearings and spacers in the body pin areas. Kind of like installing new bearing races in a hub. I believe the old bearings were rusted to the pins causing the problems to remove the pins - no grease fittings like the forward pins at the mast. Used a bunch of anti-seize but hopefully it will never need to be serviced for many years.

Well it was a long day. No luck with them coming out from the top. Couldn't even drive them out from below with a jack or porta-power. Had to drive them down through the bottom with a bar and sledge. Just rusted in for good. Had to call Clark to order new pivot bushings(?) since they came out in rusty broken pieces.

Should be a locking bar or pin on the inboard side of the rear pin that has the hex and threaded part,remove locking pin/bar and use a slide hammer threaded into the hex to slam and pound the pin out....
