    Default John Deere 5225 Tilt Gas Cylinder replacement

    The tilt steering on my 5225 has been acting up for months ( not locking)and I want to fix it. Upon a little investigation I have found that the gas activated cylinder that locks and unlocks the steering position is normally the culprit. Deere wants approx. $211 for the cylinder..Does anybody know if there is a cheaper way around this? Perhaps after market or a rebuild kit? Thanks in advance.

    1993 NH 2120 (the best), 1974 MF 135 (sold, but solid), 1947 Farmall A (bought, sold, bought back, sold again), 1956 MH50 lbt (sold, in 1980, darn it)

    McMaster-Carr has about any size, strength, and end configuration you could want. Less than $211.

    McMaster-Carr has almost everything. For what they don't, there's Grainger.
    Problem is knowing exactly what you need, and often the correct name you'll find it under. You could probably find a left handed smoke shifter in their catalog if you knew its technical name
