Massey-Ferguson MF-54 Backhoe SWING CYLINDER
Hello, I am working on a MF-40 tractor that has a MF-54 backhoe on it. The backhoe (Cessna) swing cylinder top seal leaks fluid. Otherwise, the hoe works fine, so, I'm trying to replace the top seal without removing the swing cylinder from the unit. Following the manual instructions, it tells me to remove the bolt and large nut from the bottom of the unit, THEN remove the pin part way from the top of the unit. This allows the top plate of the swing cylinder to be lifted off for seal replacement.
PROBLEM: I don't see a bolt on the bottom with the large nut. I have removed the two retainer bolts from the top pin, BUT THE PIN WILL NOT BUDGE.
DOES ANYONE KNOW WHAT I MIGHT DO TO REMOVE THE TOP PIN?

Hello Janner and welcome to TBN.
Pictures would really help here. If you have a stuck pin especially on an older tractor, you might have to soak it with penetrating oil for a couple/few days.
AndyKnowing is not enough, you must apply.
Willing is not enough, you must do.
