The item number 5-1679-6 linear actuator needs to be installed first (mounted) before it will move up or down? I looked at other linear actuators and they were able to move without be mount on the riding mower. The unit is only rotating when I applied the 12 dc voltage. Please advise on this matter... Thanks
A: Yes once the end is prevented from turning it will extend out.
