This plan is better:

Drive to Phoenix
Drop it off at my house
I'll dispose of it for you
No charge

All's well that ends well. I really like the joke about the guy under the snowmobile. I guess that shows my mind is in the gutter.

mr caster,

as the lead inspecter for OSHA here in the southern part of the other part, the Hillbilly Jack System is time honored and considered to be quite safe from an OSHA point of view.

Now I get it! It took a while, but when you mentioned mind in the gutter, the light turned on.
Thanks!

Hi, if you can buy a 4 ton floor jack for under $100.00 consider it junk from China. Throw it in the trash. A good 4 ton floor jack would go for about $700.00 to $1,000.00 if they still make them. But I think the good ones are history [out of business] since the market was flooded with this Taiwon / Chinese junk.

The replies have really been quite helpful I'll take it apart and analyze the situation.......and then probably junk it.

Keep up the seal jokes; it is helping. Simi Valley and/or Phoenix are too far for me to drive

Floor jacks

I gave up trying to find replacment cartridges for our old long frame Walker years ago. Just not available.
I don't even know if Walker Jach is still in business.
I asked the guys and a personal friend, when I caught up with him, how the jacks stand up in the COSTCO tire areas. They said good.
I bought one (80.00 or so dollars) about 6 or seven years ago. Still going strong. If it craps out I'll throw it away and go buy another one.
The petroleum hydraulic jack oil absorbs moisture and caused the internal parts to rust/corrode and makes overhaul difficult.

Buy NOTHING from Sears. Old habits die hard, however. When the maintenance and shop people at the plant where I'm purchasing agent ask for Craftsman tools, I tell them to go buy them for themselves. I refuse to spend company money on junk that is no longer backed by the previously good guarantee. Darol

The Sears store satisfaction guarantee alone should cover flawed merchandise, the 'Craftsman' label is a guarantee that should cover outright dangerous tools. Remind the store manager just how liable they would've been had the jacks failure resulted in injury; they are used to playing the odds that few people will take the time to remedy their product failures by negotiating up the gauntlet of uncaring associates.... I suspect there is someone who can satisfy your concerns -

I had an injury from one of their toolbox handles failing that was met with derision and insulting snappy come-backs until store security and a cluster of behind-the-scenes managers appeared, when I recalled the incident once again I was promptly given a full refund and a discount certificate on my next purchase...

Let me weigh in with the other heavy lifters here...

When you purchase equipment designed to thwart the law of gravity, follow this simple rule: "Buy the best–forget the rest." The American market is flooded with cheap (use and throw away) hydralic jacks and if you look closely somewhere there will be little letters in a hitherto lost language that say "Warning! Discard before use." Quality equipment, on the other hand, like Hein-Werner is designed to last and designed to be rebuilt and there is good customer support in the industrial parts of town. The more expensive floor jacks have a lower profile and are overbuilt–they will go for decades in everyday use and are easier to use. Honestly, would you repack a parachute that failed the first time? (No-you'd be dead and packing a hole in the ground) but you get the picture.
