Customer :

I made a mistake I can't get the tie rod bolt out of the hime joint on the hydrulic ram .

Customer :

No it's the end of the inner tie rod going into the hydrulic ram .

The rod is threaded into the end of the cylinder. There should be a set of cuts on the rod and the cylinder, to be used as wrench flats to unscrew the rod from the cylinder. I never found picture that showed the cylinder and rod, could you attach picture?
