NCWayne, I'm confused after re-reading your post. If the rod is all the way out, fully extended how will cracking the top line help?
I might be wrong here, but doesn't the top line (by top line I mean the one closest to where the rod comes out of the cylinder)push the rod back in to the cylinder? Maybe I am not understanding what goes on in a cylinder.
I thought that in order to test the seals to see if oil is pushing past them I would put the rod all the way out, crack bottom line, work lever to retract. Then the hyd. oil would push against the rod (inside the cylinder)and if it was all good no pressurized squirt of oil would come out of the bottom, partially opened line, but if the seals were bad, hyd. oil would squirt past the seals and out the bottom line.
