Fabrication Steps

  • Always wrap thread tape clockwise when facing the threaded portion.
  • Always keep the end caps on hoses and fittings until you need to take them off. They need to stay protected inside.


  1. Assemble the individual assemblies as shown, and prepare the two 96" hoses by putting a male quick coupler onto one end of each.
  2. Install Assembly #1 into the rod end of the cylinder (image below). Insure the quick coupler will be facing towards the ground when the cylinder is installed.
    • You will install the remaining components later upon installing the secondary cylinder.
