    On the front of the box there is a dome shaped cover that is held in place by a snap ring (you cad drill and tap this cover for a fitting to power one side of a hydro assist cylinder)I can remove the snap ring but I am un sure how to do so with out twisting it all to he!!,If I had a source to buy a new one I wouldnt care so if some one has a source can I be your best friend for a day and you tell me /forums/images/icons/grin.gif
