Pat, You and I must have been typing at the same time. The stop only comes into play when the ram is retracted, by weight. When I had a mower on my 154, that was how I set the height of the deck. Right now with a snow plow on, that stop doesn't come near the bolt. Right now with my plow raised the whole cylinder measures 16 7/8 inches. with the plow down the whole cylinder measures 15 1/8 inches. With my plow on, the stop doesen't come near anything with it up or down. If I put my mower on, it would hit the stop at a pre dertimed spot to regulate how high I wanted the grass to be. I hope this all makes sense to you, 'cause I'm getting confused now!
