There's a guy on ebay that sells rebuild kits, type in "floor jacks" or "hydraulic floor jacks"

After you take it apart ( the top will probably unscrew) document where you find every o-ring and scraper seal either by photo or sketch. Then go to a hydraulic shop or hydraulic cylinder re-builder and you can buy what you need individually.

I suppose it needs rebuilt because it leaks off?

A buddy of mine said that he bought some leak stop jack fluid (I think he said he got it at AutoZone) and put it in a jack that had leaked off for years. He said that it has "cured it" and it has been working fine for 6 months since he put it in.

Might be worth a try before tearing it apart.

I assume the stop leak works by swelling the seals. Anyone know what the "active ingredient" is?

Anyone know of or have access to a cross reference or dimensional chart for various pump assemblies? I have a nice Craftsman 2T aluminum jack that looks pretty, but the pump is junk and has caused some near misses. I'd like to swap the pump to something rebuildable, even it requires drilling new holes or otherwise adapting. Better than tossing it out...
