Nose Gear up lock

I just finished overhauling a nose gear up-lock. This is by far the tightest space I've ever had to work with, and I'm surprised I was able to even complete the job without removing the entire nose strut assembly. Does anyone have any success stories (or short cuts) on the best way to deal with Skymaster nose gear up locks?

I just rebuilt the hydraulic actuator and it is a little tight to remove. I removed the four attach bolts from inside the cabin center console and pulled the actuator out to rebuild on the bench.

FYI: There are two o-rings that are proprietary and must be purchased from Cessna. I have numbers and extras if anyone needs. The o-rings are less than a $1 each.

Access is tight but achievable via the panel on the belly behind the nose gear door.
