Customer Question

Hi Gene. I am having problems dissembling a hijacker hydraulic ram to replace the ram O rings. Have undone the bottom bolt endless turns with no progress. What is the recommended procedure. Gordon. +64 273 704 608
JA: What year is your Ram?
Customer: Pass just brought second hand but has to be 20 years old
JA: Are you fixing your Ram yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Undoing the lower bolt, telescoping the inner piston (lower leg) out. It comes to a sudden stop. The bolt is still firm requiring a socket to turn, must have turned at least 30 revolutions with little gain.

JA: Have you checked the fluids recently?
Customer: The oil drained out the failed seals down the leg. Another leg is becoming damp

I see no one has posted any help with this here.In some cases this can be due to the info you may be looking for may be difficult to obtain or the correct person that can help may not be online.

Inspect the bolt threads to see if any are damaged in any way as this can cause a fault like this here.If this is or was checked and found to be o.k. let me know so we can continue.
