CARE OF JACKS
Coat all surfaces with a thin film of light oil
when not in use.
For long periods of storage, the jacks should be
covered with a rust-preventive compound and stored in
a dry place.
Periodically check hydraulic fluid level in push-
pull hydraulic jacks. Stand the pump on end before
taking out the fill plug, then fill with oil. Make sure the
ram is in the retracted position when checking level of
oil and when filling.
Ratchet lever jacks should be well greased. A
thin coat applied with hand or brush is sufficient for all
movable parts except the bushings. The bushings
should be filled with grease in the small hole provided
for greasing purposes. Keep rack sides and front
greased, but do not grease the rack teeth.
