Leaking Floor Jack

Does anyone know of an inexpensive way to repair a "leaking" hydraulic cylinder on a 2 Ton Floor Jack? These stinkin' things are throw aways but it always happens at a time when I just don't feel like spendin' $75 bucks at Harbor Freight or wherever, for something that might fix for $5.00? Am I dreaming or should I yank out its processor and fill a hole with it? Thanks!

the o rings are available at the hardware store too. Howeverv the piston cups are not as easy to get. If lucky you can find one at the local jack repairhouse. I did the HF low profile. Made in china but uses jap piston made of better steel then china., about $80. Amwerican made for daily use about $400. U do the math.

Thanks Fella's - I'll do a little "disassembly" and see if I can replace a few "O-Rings"!
