Thanks, Grant. Yes, it’s full of fluid. It leaks out of the main ram area, so I know that O ring is shot.
Sears has a manual for it, but nothing on the inner workings of the cylinder or valves. There are any number of folks selling “rebuild kits” for these jacks out there, but I wince at the thought of paying someone $50 for a couple of O rings. One of the web sites I looked at today said that the Harbor Freight metric O ring kit would have everything needed to reseal the cylinder and valves. I’m going to swing by HF tonight and drop $8.00 for the O ring set. I’ll probably tear into it this weekend.
