Power Gear seals leaking

I have a front seal leaking slightly and figured it was time to rebuild. Contacted PG and all parts have to go through a dealer not direct. Does anyone no of a place where seals can be bought direct ?

I replace a bad seal last year. I just searched online for PG parts, or maybe it was the part number. Anyway, found one and had shipped to me. They come in 'kits' and could not just get the seal. If memory serves, the kit was $140. It does contain a new lower end for the hydraulic portion of the jack which has a zerk fitting (used on later model jacks) and they say to use lithium grease. Hope this helps.

if you are going to do it yourself then take the jack apart be careful getting the seal out and it should have a number on it that you can take to a place that sells bearings. They can match the part number and order you a new seal.

The other option is to take the jack to a place that rebuilds hydraulic cylinders. I have not done that although I have a spare jack that I am going to have rebuilt. I have a friend that had a hydraulic cylinder from a 20 ton log splitter. It was 125.00 to have that rebuilt. They replaced the seals and micropolished the ram.

Pump some grease into the zerk fitting on it.
And the leak may stop.
