Please see following post.

These requests "fill out" the previous request filed here:
https://www.bricklink.com/message.asp?ID=1020998

If that change is approved and the line is then set to match number 6, these
changes I am filing now should mesh seamlessly.

There are indeed 2 versions of instructions for this set, although they apparently
don't have anything to do with the linear actuators, at least not directly.
All instructions are available at Brickset, but I have attached the pertinent
pages below (from book 1). Also attached is an image of a service pack where
new actuators were included with the extra parts for the axle replacement.

What is happening essentially is that an axle pin is being replaced by a 4-axle
with a stud (p. 45), which will enable the gears to flow more smoothly. There
is a support added to the other end of the axle (p. 41) to keep it stable.
