    Depending on the style of the gland, you could use a Pin-Faced spanner wrench, or a adjustable-hook style wrench. Available thru Grainger's or McMaster as well.

    In the real world we use a pipe wrench or channel locks. Some consumers don't want the little tooth marks they leave. They can be cleaned up with a file. Most of the spanners suck and are a pain to use. Even in the dealership with the right spanners we ended using pipe wrenches or channel locks.

    Some aren't threaded, they're held in with a retaining wire. If you can post a pic I can help more.

    Look for a set screw in the side of the barrel about a 1/2" or a little more from the rod end of the cylinder. Remove it, and using a soft punch or drift, drive the gland down into the barrel an inch or two. Remove the internal retaining ring from the I.D. of the barrel. Using the rod and piston like a slide hammer, remove the gland, rod and piston from the barrel all together. Before you start any of this, clean up all the dirt, oil and garbage from the exterior of that cylinder. If you are going to accomplish successful repairs, you need to learn how to be clean. You can't fix cylinders with that much crap hanging off them and expect them not to leak when you get done.

    What we need is more idiot control.

    Here is the best gland removal too that I've seen. It's called a "Henderson Tool".

    yes your right about it being dirty....there is no set screw anywhere on the rod? unless your talking about the opposite end of rod looks like a nipple for grease?
