Graham, if this is to lift your sports car have you tried a quick lift. It will be more than capable...

My steel paddock Jack is 11Kg.
I have never used it on the Lola at a track...typical.
I hate borrowing tools at a track so it follows me everywhere.
However, at home I use it a lot on my old911 which is 1000Kg, so it has to be dual purpose.
The arse of the Lola is really heavy, maybe 300Kg, so need a trolley for that.

My plan is to try to seal my plunger piston shaft tomorrow, failing that a second hand Eversure seems good, then the MM alloy one, 10% off atm.

Would you believe there is a forum for vehicle jacks?
Yep, and a huge section for Eversure.
They were made in Birmingham, so must be great!

Graham

See what you mean about online jack info: http://www.classic-british-car-jacks...#Trolley_Jacks

Have you seen the working Eversure 2500 trolley Jack (with a spares one) for sale in Solihull on bay of the e? (Item number 202139777243)

Cheers
Mike

Yes, there are 2 of them, and I know the UHR who has them!
Not far from me here either if I had a big snow plough...

I took the plunger out of my non Eversure Jack this morning.
It has been leaking a lot of oil out of the top of the plunger for some months, sore moved the handle rocker and pulled the plunger out.
It has a seal like a brake master cylinder and 2 hard guide rings to take the side loads on the plunger during use, quite a nice design IMHO.
Oil gushed out whenI removed it, so I left it to stabilise and checked the oil level after.
Put the plunger back in, and filled the cylinder until the top of the cylinder was wet with the oil.
Bled the system by rapidpumping to height and down again, maybe 10 times.

It all seems to work!
Have I been the problem here? Have I simply over filled it?

I'll see if the leak re appears tomorrow and use the Jack to about 300 Kg and test things.

If it works ok, then I'll keep this jack. I've done a lot of car work with it and it has been great until this last year.
If it fails then those Solihull jacks could be mine unless one on here nicks them!

There are good low level steel jacks for £40 on that site that look good but remember, I was after a light Jack than this troublesome one @ 11Kg.

The Eversure Jack is heavier I think.

This is a bizarre thread on ULR,
