2 post hoist

There should be a pipe fitting at the top of the housing that you attach a copper tube the full diameter as the fitting, and take that to your operating manifold. You have an operating manifold for each cylinder. You locate these so you can run both at the same time. There should be a fitting on the mainfold to come from the air supply, and a common one that goes to the cylinder, and an exhaust one with a muffler on it. There should be some sort of dip stick to determine oil level in the cylinder unit. You install this in a trench in the floor, or a large plastic conduit. You can just fill the hole with dirt, then pour concrete over the opening, too, after you are certain that everything works and does not leak.
