My schedule and personal problems haven't allowed me to have any spare time for the last several months,
yesterday I took some time for myself and tackled my hydraulic center stand
which hasn't worked since I got stuck in a wet grass culvert a couple of months ago.
The first thing I did is read Ari's write up
and the joegottberg write up.
After that it was time to get my hands dirty.
Probably the hardest part was securing the LT on my lift,
I just wasn't very comfortable with just a couple of straps holding "her" upright.
Once the wrenching began I couldn't believe how simple it was with all the "guidance" from the forum friends.
My problem turned out to be a stuck brush inside the motor (some gunk)
I went ahead and flushed the unit out, cleaned it up and put it back on and she works like new.
It was a lot easier than I thought it would be, except for replacing the center stand spring (ouch)
A big "thank you" to Ari and Joe as well as all of the other contributers.
Do any of y'all know where I can get some replacement brushes?
