3 Ton Jack

If the jack hasn't suffered from some sort of breakage and the hydraulics haven't been damaged by rust, you may be able to resurrect it using O-rings, etc. from another brand/type jack.

But if it's a narrow, short, low lift floor jack or short bottle jack, another jack could prolly be bought for less than the parts will cost to fix this one.
Thanks for the info. Yes i have checked with NAPA and they can get the parts but I need instructions on how to rebuild it. Thanks nam 1970
