gs 1930 genie scissor lift
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 1 month ago.

Yes, I thought so. Genie only shows how to remove the cylinder, and nothing on disassembling the cylinder. Is the gland nut the one with two holes drilled for a spanner wrench, to twist and screw out the gland nut?

Right hand, regular thread, never left hand!
