Great job Randy, I also worked at rebuilding one of my leveling jacks .I was not as successful as you and wound up taking mine to P & H hydraulic service in Jacksonville Fl .They did a six day turn around and 220 bucks, and would not share an secrets.

Great Tube Video!
We were on the Right Track and then the Parts Delivery guy showed up...
This sent us down Another path.
Although he did say there is a Special Tool for the end of cylinder.

Paul,i had all intentions on calling you with the "trick".
But we got busy here and i simply forgot!


Since i had had one rebuilt at HWH (was still recovering from shoulder repair) and it only took them 3 hours and there was no fresh welds or paint on the jack,i knew it was not a terrible job!


And,i must add,there was several real sharp Bird guys that stopped by and gave us a hand on the jack,most of them were gone when we finally got it apart.
So i do not claim credit!

Hey!
Thanks for posting!
Yep,we were on the right road,but we let the paint delivery driver send us down the wrong path!

Nice work. So rewarding to outfox those engineers.
