Default Screwed up!!

hey guys
i ordered a hydraulic ram and noticed i screwed up, I needed a double acting
model and ordered a single acting i called northern tool and they have already
shiped it, My question is, is it posible to drill and tap the other end of it, and
make it double acting, i am thinking it might blow out the front seal if it dose
not have a rear seal. Bill

If they have already shipped it, just refuse it when the package shows up and order the right one. I would think NT should credit you once they get the first package back.

I dont see that the seals would be the same (able to take pressure) on the ram.
I would just send it back.

Stone, the seals on a single acting cylinder rod end are to keep crap out and they will not stand much pressure.
