    I just picked up a 2000 Z-45/25J. There are a few things I want to address first and could use some advice.
    First, the Primary Boom up/down - Turntable Rotate is super sloppy, and the up down cam fell off and it feels like return to center mechanism is missing or worn out. I was able to put the cam back in but I don't see a positive way to hold it in. I plan to replace the whole joy stick. Where is a good online source of parts?

    Second, I want to check that the limit switches are properly set. Should I attempt this myself?

    I need to replace some gaskets on the engine. It also needs a new muffler It's leaking some oil from the cam cover and possibly a few others. Another candidate for a good online source of parts.

    It's going better than I thought. Found the correct parts manual for my serial number. Located the complete joystick for a decent price on Ebay, Muffler from Trupar. Just need to track down gaskets, check the limit switches and I should be good.
