The cylinder on my splitter has some issues. Its 5" with a 2" rod. It has pitting at the wedge end and has a minor bend in it. My perception is that I can not fit a 24" cylinder on this beam. I would like to add a cylinder and have it mounted with a clevis/ pin (not welded). Do you guys think a 5x20" would suffice. Or should I try to unbend the existing rod and limit the retraction of the ram somehow? The inside distance between the foot and head is 60". I would like to use the existing wedge.
