Been having issues with my hi-lift jamming up pretty bad and couldn't find a repair/rebuild kit locally. I really needed a hi-lift over the weekend so I said eff it and went out and bought a new hi-lift at the same store I bought my old one from a year ago.
After I was done using it, I went to place it on my hi-lift mount attached to my tire carrier and it wouldn't fit! On further inspection, the holes in the rail are closer together! WTF?? I thought these things haven't changed in like 50 years? They look identical, same model and everything. Does anyone know why they changed? Are the parts interechangeable? Not sure what to do since my hi-lift mount is welded in place.
Just kinda pisses me off that the changes are so minute but it's enough that it won't fit.
