richard stewart 3rd Hi

Welcome to Hotrodders.com Glad to have you with us.

The link is to posts here about repairing floor jacks.
In the future to find stuff here click the search button at the top of the page & type in what your looking for. You can also go to the Knowledge base here & look for whatever.

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

How to rebuild a 3 ton floor jack.

I have an old floor jack that won't lift anymore.. I have added Hydraulic oil and still won't work. Like I said it's an old jack and well used. I need to know where I can't find the (how to rebuild) a floor jack. I sure there's not much to it but I like to have step by step instructions for something I haven't done before. If anyone can help it would be great.
The jack an AUTO SPECIALTIES MFG.CO. PRODUCT. ST. JOSEPH MICH. USA
It is a 3 Ton jack.
The Model #5-51215
Serial #03 81
I bought it at NAPA about about 29 years ago.
If anyone can help it would be great.
Thanks Nam1970
