Bummer, i pulled it out the shop to warm it up and the deck went down but not back up, pulled up the fender and my worst fears were realized.  

The way it mounts i dont think a universal actuator would work.

Looks like my actuator length (body) is 12", and retracted length is approximately 14", extended length isn't critical..but 4" should do it.. the front mount will be custom no matter what

This is the electric lift that has been on my shelf for a loooooong time.  I do not have the electric motor, but all the other parts appear to be complete....'cept for one exploded bearing you see.  Asi de from some surface rust, it isn't twisted or otherwise damaged. 

For all seen in these pics--$75 + 24 ship (heavy pkg).  For just the lift tube and internals...with gears.. $50 + 20 ship charge. (excluding the Yoke & threaded rod and  HD brackets )

It's probably the worm gear or that other gear stripped or possibly the pin holding the gear to the shaft

I just can't picture an Acme screw stripping under this circumstance.

Open it up and it looks like Dave can fix you up with the needed parts

Its got it's issues, the motor part has been drilled and helicoiled, the motor "stops" after lifting or lowering like its tripping a breaker for 15-20 seconds.
