Default Pallet Jack

Got a call this morning from a friend who said he had a heavy duty pallet jack and asked if I wanted it for free. Said it would not jack up and it was at a rental house he had, mostly buried in dirt. I said sure. Went and picked it up 15 minutes later.

It has a name plate but can only read the S/N on the tag. The linkage pins are not froze, but real tight. It was all the way up and no jumping on it would allow it to go down with the down foot pedal in the down position. Used the Massey and got it halfway down for now. Would not pump up. Drove out 4 pins so far. Couple more to go.

Plan to get it all cleaned up and some paint and give it to my son as he will have a concrete floor and I only have gravel in my shop. Probably need to replace some seals and o-rings also.

Pics tomorrow.

Nice score, especially if you get it working with out too much trouble. I used to ride them like scooters in the grocery store. Could do 360s on them..

Talked me dad into getting one and we used it often in his scrapping work. Made moving old boilers out easier than on pipes sometimes.

Got the hydraulic head off today. Could read the label better today. It is a 1948 crown 4,500 lb. Trying to find a parts diagram, no luck so far. Looks to be all intact and just needs some maintenance. For free a good deal.

Some disassembly progress. Got a couple more pieces to take off before the cleaning and inspection begins.

The nasty part of taking everything apart is over. Next, the even nastier part of cleaning up all the parts. Inside the cylinder is really gunked up. Hoping Crown gets back to me with a diagram and parts list next week.

We did the same, I was pretty good on one. One day I came flying through the back room on the smooth shiny concrete with a crowd of onlookers. I smartly cut the handle sharply and pushed the back end hard and did a beautiful 360 and slid right up next to another one that was sitting there, jumped off and the handle spun around and hit me in the nuts. It was a great show for the onlookers as I limped away all red faced.

I expect at 70, I will not be doing donuts on it.

Crown did get back with me and they do not have a parts schematic. Disappointing, but I will get through this without a diagram.

Were you able to finish this jack? I have a pallet mule jack I need to reseal. I've never done this before. How do you decide what material to use for the seals? Then it is just measuring rod diameter? I appreciate any tips you have for doing this.

Thanks,
Mike
