HWH cylinder

Just had my right rear leveler replaced. I checked the thing for obvious wear but no scoring, rust, nothin'. Is there any value to a used cylinder? Can they be rebuilt? I asked that the old cylinder be returned to me, but they "forgot." Should I be suspicious?

If not damaged, those cylinders are rebuilt regularly. Did you pay a core charge when you bought the replacement cylinder? HWH rebuilds cylinders and reuses or resells them.

the cylinders can be rebuilt. hwh does that all the time. its nice to have a spare.
a lot of repair facilities keep the old cylinder, and have it rebuilt. it build up their stock at a small cost.
yes they should return the part to you. many states require that they offer the old part to you when the repair is finished. but most owners dont want to go thru the system to get the part rebuild. what the odds you will need that part again?

A couple of months ago I also replaced a cylinder and at that time I was quoted $280.00 for HWH to rebuild that cylinder, plus I would have to pay shipping both ways. I checked in the phone book for a local re-builder and had it done for $100.00 and no shipping involved. So check, there are usually re-builders around.

If you had to replace the right one and no obvious damage you will probably have to replace the left one before long. Go back to the repair shop and demand they give you the old one back. You can have it rebuilt a lot cheaper than buying a new one. Of course there is a good chance they are going to tell you they threw it away.
