    A little off subject. I have 2 vintage Blackhawk floor jacks that are in need of new internal seals. Has anyone had any success in getting old floor jacks re-built. Thanks

    There are places that specialize in rebuilding jacks, There is not that much to them. I found a lot of information at:
    http://www.hyjacks.com/H7.HTM
    and managed to get a bottle jack going again.

    I have been looking for A blackhawk model floor jack like that for sometime. If you have 2 of those, would you consider selling one of them?
