Make sure the shroud is not pushing on one of the down pedals.

I have removed the cylinder and put it in a vise to work it. Still will not pump up. Going to tear into it today to see what i can see. Ill try to find parts to rebuild it. in St Louis.

We do thousands of hydraulic cylinder repairs yearly for Hill-Rom, Stryker, and Hausted. If there is anything I can help you with, my email is Mike@Hfsofflorida.com
