Q: Power Top Cylinder Removal
Has anyone on the list ever changed the lift cylinders with a power top? I have the Fisher Body Manual but it is not too clear in this area. I believe that you need to take the assembly completely out, that is attached to the cylinder, but I am not too sure. The manual clearly defines the other models but the “F” body is a little bit unclear. Anyone?
A: I’ve done this on a 1969, not sure if it is the same. When I took mine out, I removed ONLY the cyinder. I first detached it from the top. Took out the seat and panel covers. Detached the hydraulic hose from the bottom. Then removed the bolts/pins which hold it in place near the top. This was the hardest part. I could get the inner one off pretty easy but the outer one was hard because there wasn’t enough room to get it out. I had to pry a bit with a large screwdriver in order to get enough space to get it out.
