How To Repair A Hydraulic Jack

    hydraulic jack
  • A device used to lift a vehicle by using hydraulic pressure.
  • A jack is mechanical device used to lift heavy loads or apply great forces. Jacks employ a screw thread or hydraulic cylinder to apply very high linear forces.
  • A mechanical lifting device incorporating an external lever to which force is applied to cause a small internal piston to pressurize the fluid, usually oil, in a chamber. The pressure exerts force on a larger piston, causing it to move vertically upward and raise the bearing plate above it.

how to repair a hydraulic jack lower control arm bushing
lower control arm bushing
for 7 years i have owned the convertible, it's been practically problem-free. now i need to do some repair work on it. if you recognize these parts, i'd like to seek your advice. i'd like to know how difficult it is to remove the old bushing. i have a puller, which i used once many years ago to remove a ball joint. at the moment i don't know if it's big enough. also, how difficult is it to hammer the new bushing into the control arm? since it's rubber, i guess neither would be too difficult. last but not least, how does one jack up a 330 CiC properly? i have two hydraulic jacks and 4 jack stands.

This consisted of 2 small hydraulic jacks, 2x4's and 4x4's. 2 Crow-Bars. A hastily made contraption made out of 2 planks of lumber and an Oak Shim (or something like that). Once we got the safe outside, We constructed the contraption, which the safe broke as we were lifting it onto it. After subsequent repairs to the wooden contraption, we lifted the safe back on the wooden contraption and slowly and not-so-carefully carried it to the back of Barry's Pickup. I can't believe how heavy that safe was.
