I'm still not understanding what 'axis' refers to.

I'm assuming 'axis' would be the line going through the center of whatever lengthwise. So usually the center of the ram would line up with the center of the valve chamber.

How I understood it. Yellow = valve chamber.

In the 08, the middle of the ram is lined up with the center of the valve chamber, while in the 09, its a bit higher up.

Thanks Bob! That clears it up. I was staring at the diagram, but without the line, it's a very subtle thing to see.

Now I see what Jack was saying about how there's less stress on the pin.

Yeah. The valve chamber is a good big bigger as you can see as well.

The box on the 08 is even a bit larger than it should be, since the 09 one goes to the retaining pin whereas the 08 goes past it.


I guess anyone feel free to post that picture where people have questions, if they do.
