Wagner N-40 hydraulig steering ram seal replacement

I would like to replace the seals on my Wagner steering ram.
I removed the hydraulic hoses, bleed nipples and the two allen screws at the end. How does that thing come apart?????

Careless Navigator-----that is a good illustration! i would say it looks like the two ends screw off the cylinder. i haven't taken one of these apart.

I never replaced the seals so can't help you there. The mount end was always the problem for us, it wears and develops a lot of slop. Finally got tired of paying the price for Wagner rams and switched to a Teleflex ram. No more probs.

Thanks for the replies.
The ends do unscrew with a lot more force than I thought.
All fixed now and all is well.
