    I acquired a Wagner n50 hydraulic steering ram. Was wondering if anyone here is still using one or if they are good units. Couldn’t find much info online about them, would a newer teleflex ram be better?

    A little tricky to get get apart , so use caution that you don't damage the housing or ram. I used 2 stainless bolts threaded into the end cap which unscrews (right hand ) and held the ram wrapped with a rag in a pipe vise to get apart using BIG Chanel Lock pliers.

    Appreciate the info and tip. Was planning on buying new seals and rebuilding but it appears the shaft has some bad spots looks like someone whacked it with a hammer. So it might leak probably the reason I ended up with it. Anyone need parts? Lol
