OPERATING PRINCIPLES • With release valve closed, an upward stroke of the jack handle draws oil from the reservoir tank into the plunger cavity. Hydraulic pressure holds a valve closed, which keeps the oil in the plunger cavity. • A downward stroke of the jack handle releases oil into the cylinder, which forces the ram out.
MAINTAINING OIL LEVEL Important: When adding or replacing oil, ALWAYS use a good grade Hydraulic Jack oil. DO NOT use Hydraulic Brake Fluid, Alcohol, Glycerine, Detergent, Motor Oil or dirty oil.
