Default HWH Rebuild

HWH rebuild. I thought I would copy this post here since I failed to properly title it in my renovation thread. No bolt through the bottom of the foot of these jacks; you have to go in another way. Once the fitting on the cylinder is removed you can slide the piston until the snap ring on the top of it is visible through the port. If you rotate the piston you will be able to find a gap in the ring and slide it around until it lines up with the slot cut in the piston. Then the ring can be pried out of the groove allowing the piston to slide out of the cylinder. Some of them took a little persuasion, but they came out. Nothing special inside. Got new O-rings, backing rings, and wipers from Cooper Hydraulics in Albany by matching up the old ones (times 4). The snap ring is a little tricky going back together and required a home made tool to push the ring into the groove. I'm guessing they used something similar when they were built or the slot wouldn't be cut in the top of the piston. There may be an actual tool for it but we made this one out of 1/4" key stock. No trick to taking the actuator apart and nothing special inside (last photo) that the hydraulic shop couldn't match up. Sorry about the out of focus shot; it's hard to work and take pics. A little paint and they will be ready to go back on the coach.

Default HWH Actuator 1982 35FC

Has anyone the specs for the seals and o rings for the RAP 8764 actuator? HWH will not sell a field rebuild kit.

If you will take your actuator apart and take it to a hydraulic shop in Birmingham they will be able to match the seals up for you. You could just take the seals, but some shops like to actually measure the parts of the cylinder and piston. There is nothing special or expensive in the actuator.

Lots of guys here with leaking HWH jacks.
Read and look at Chaps pics,they do not have to be cut apart to fix them,and they are rebuildable.
Just because the shop can't do it does not mean we can't.

He posted in 2014.
All you had to do was ask,and someone would have pointed the way.

Thank you Randy!!! WOG is great!
Got the other 3 jacks back before they were cut apart. 4th (spare) will be welded back together and see if it works. Hope to rebuild the other 3 soon.

Does anybody know if this will work on the jacks of a 89 WB? I pulled the jack last spring, but the shop I took it to couldn't figure out how to get into it, other then cutting and re-welding. I didn't see this thread until today. Glad I didn't let them do it.


I've got it in a bay, I may pull it out and see what I can see after I take off the hydraulic fitting.
