has found its way into the main bearing of the tiller arm/ram/piston.
Mine is only 18 months old. First signs of trouble was a horrible noise
Not to worry I thought as I had a spare tiller arm from my previous 4000+ . Unfortunately this was seized solid with the same problem. Ended up pulling the original apart and rebuilding the race
with a piece of tin can until I could go shopping
appears to be entering the tiller arm from the push rod end.
Any one else with this problem?
