Technician: Curtis B., Technician replied 8 months ago

Where do you want to remove lines from? At cylinder or at control valve. At control valve, the lines are held in to valve with a plate. The plate has two bolts in it, that hold the lines into the valve block. to remove the lines from cylinder, the hoses have to be unscrewed, and hoses may have to be off the valve block, it there is no swivel end on the hoses.
