Floor Jack.............

Having a lot of trouble with my Walker floor jack. Was only going up 1/2 in each stroke. It's 30 years old, so I can't really ask much more of it.

Broke down and went and bought a new one at Princess Auto. That is our Canadian version of Harbor Freight, I guess. This sucker lifts up to almost 30 inches. Was $199. Does that sound like a decent deal.



Going to take the pumping cylinder apart on the Walker, probably just an "O" ring or something.

Actually, I went out last night and took the pumping cylinder apart. There is a wadding ring that is tightened with a nut and washer. Just needed tightening, Put new hyd fluid in it too. Should be good for another 30 years. Now, if I only had a grandson to pass it on to..................................



That cloud is how "Cold" it was in my shop......................

Forget the paint heat the shop I need to get a bigger jack as well and that price seams pretty good from what I have seen. I agree with the others that you should fix the old jack though.

OK put the old jack up on the new, strip it down and do a frame up resto
