oh wow that brings back memories

My grandfather had an auto body repair shop back until he died in '75 in Chicago.

He had a jack like that.

I still remember the smells of paint and body filler and him letting me pump the jack up and down (unloaded!) when I was about 4 or so.

I found the reseal kit for it too for about 40 dollars, it uses leather seals in it too. The only issue is that the main ram sealing nut is torqued to about 250 lb/ft and its not a hex nut.

It lifted the car without any effort and it can lift upto 26 inches, it weighs about 212 lbs but is quite easy to maneuver on the floor as it uses bearing casters on the rear.

Its really a very solid piece, made for centuries of service.

My father in law was a machinist and used to cut a groove in the piston and install a rubber seal on old jacks that he rebuilt. That was back in the day when drills cost what amounted to an entire day's wage.

It was a real effort getting this into the van I used to pick it up.

that's a wonderful tool. I love old tools (I am one, or is that old fool?). Seriously though, nice find.

I wouldn't know how to store something that heavy.

My 240 couldn't get it home.

Zulfi, there are some threads on Garagejournal.com where jacks of that type are rebuilt. There are also some great general threads on hydraulic jacks. If you have not been on that board, watch out, because you can stop by the site, and BAM, three hours go by and you had no idea!

Rgds,
