Dry Packing or Bushing on HwH Cyclinder?
Does anyone know if the HwH 12,000 or 9,000 hydralic cyclinders for their levelers have bushing or packing near the entrance/exit hole on the cyclinder? If so can it dry out within a month?
For instance my levelers are AP29405 and AP29547 models. I don't use them but once or twice a year for no more than 5 days at a time.
I put them down with no problem but when I retract them, they are one way jacks, the springs are suppose to bring them up, they only come up about half way and take forever to fully seat.
However, if I spray them with WD40 and wipe them clean once a month they come up within 1-2 minutes with no problem.
I replaced the springs on the left side, front and rear, and they didn't come up all the way. I put them back down, cleaned the rod with wd40, wiped it clean, and then they came up with no problem
I called HwH and they said to use only wd40 on cleaning them or soap and water. They also said it was my springs or cyclinder. I don't how as I replaced the springs and when I clean the cyclinder it comes up with no problem.
Sounds like a dried out packing or bushing somewhere.
