Hello there! I recently acquired a 1958 861-d. The entire third link assembly that connects to the draft control was busted off, so I ordered a seal kit for the cover and cylinder and the parts that were missing. Opened the cover up and was trying to use the rebuild/ setup instructions I found on this site for an NAA. The parts look very similar. I have two questions. The front left threaded hole on the cylinder housing for attachment to the cover had been busted off in the past and was "repaired". Do you think it's worth getting a new cylinder to replace this one. Everything else looks and feels ok. Seals are good, etc. Also, will using the setup guide for the NAA give me good results with this setup also? Thanks!
I'll try to post some pictures later on.
