Most of my murphy beds are perfectly counter-balanced. To help gain mechanical leverage I moved the position of the piston mounting plates. I could only move it 5/8” back. That may not seem like much but when the original distance of the pistons are 7 ½” from the pivot point, that’s about an 8% increas...
