Default Jack Rebuild


After nearly a year I finally got the plugs out of the bottom of the rear jacks.
I tried with my 750 lb 1 inch drive impact wrench, then another shop tired and failed. But Steve Pappas knew of another shop and took them there, The old guy (of course) got them loose and out at last

So now I need to loosen the inner rod and pull them apart. So far that is no better than the plugs. I have a big screwdriver with a square shank I put a wrench on, but it ain't doing it. Never ends>>>

Then i will need to find replacement seals (HWH won't sell them to you probably to protect their authorized shops). I guess I will need to drag them around to find a shop willing to supply the seals so I can get that project DONE

Anyone got a spec for the seals?

Once you get apart, you will be surprised to find the seals a run of the mill stuff. I rebuilt the two front ones on my coach, they are the straight down ones though, but it was right off the shelf seals/slides stuff.

We were having trouble getting some of the bolts etc off too, and the guy at the hydraulic shop quickly did a number on them - that red thread glue is good stuff.

As Bill and Mike said, seals are stock affairs most any hydraulic shop would have or could get quickly. I believe HWH put those plugs in soooo tight in order to keep you, I and others from rebuilding them ourselves I have rebuilt 6 of them over the years and always found the inner bolt not tight at all? You probably have the drawing but just in case for someone else.

FWIW, the tilt cylinder needs the ball (H-2309) in the proper side of the proper port i.e. towards the tilt cylinder opposite the ram It is easy to get an oil leak at these junctions if everything is not perfectly square!
