Thanks for the reply! I kind of figured that the company is out of business. I couldn't find anything on the internet. This lift belongs to a friend. I told him that I may be able to put new o-rings/seals if I could get it apart and take some measurements. Thanks again. J

Although its not unheard of, its really rare to find a cylinder that has to be cut apart and welded back together for a rebuild. If a person isn't familiar with the various ways of building cylinders, its real easy to think a cylinder whose rod gland is held in with a lock wire can't be disassembled, when in truth its one of the easiest types to disassemble. I've repaired cylinders off a couple different unknown brand post type lifts, and both of them had lock wire cylinders. The only fully welded cylinders I've encountered were on military equipment where the entire cylinder was to be replaced as a unit rather than rebuilding.

A lock wire cylinder will have a slot about 3/4 to 1" long in the cylinder barrel a half inch or so down from the end of the barrel on the rod end. To remove the lock you rotate the head gland with a spanner wrench, pipe wrench, or whatever until the end of the wire shows up in the slot. The pry up slightly on the end of the wire and rotate the gland in the proper direction to wind it out thru the hole. To reassemble, locate the hole in the wire slot, hook the wire into the hole, and rotate the gland to wind the wire back into place.

Thanks, for the information Tubetek, I like that method better than cutting and welding. I didn't go by the shop today, but I will stop in tomorrow to see if that cylinder has the slot you speak of. J
