RESULT Testing hydraulic cylinders

I tested one of them with compressed air, it went very ineventful, the
ram slowly moved until it reached end of its travel. Then I switched
the side where I supplied air and it retracted. I tried that a few
times, sometimes the ram would jump just a little, but nothing
major. Of course I was careful and tried not to let in too much air at
once. I used a ball valve for air.
I cannot open the second cylinder, it is plugged with aluminum plugs
with a big allen wrench hole, I do not have a wrench for it. Will try
penetrating oil PB Blaster and some vise grips.
