Faulty bed lift actuator - repair/replace

Has anyone tried to obtain a 3rd party dump actuator or repair a JD actuator for a 6x4 Gator (1999)?

Tried to dump a too heavy bed load and actuator now only "clicks" when trying to raise bed. Can only get a pricey replacement actuator from JD.



Manufacturer of actuator won't sell direct.

Thanks - will double check sizing and specs and see about ordering. Part number you provided doesn't look like what I need, but other units they have "should" work. Will update after I order and install.
