Looking for tips on replacing o'rings in my dipper cylinder

John This is the dipper cylinder on my MF30 Industrial.
I thought the hydraulic hoses were leaking so I replaced them, which was a good idea anyway but then I still had a small leak. The leak was on one end of the tube that runs outside the cylinder. The book shows a bunch of stuff, o-rings, washers, etc.
I'm going to replace the o-rings today but I figured I'd ask for any advice or tips before doing it.

John Turns out it was the o'ring. Saw the nick in it after I got it out and a new o'ring sealed it up nice. Odd thing, the book called for two shims in front of the spring but it didn't have any shims.
Oh well, it worked.
