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.

Got the 99% of crap cleaned out this morning. Still have to blow out all the passages in the cylinder. Also freed up the wheel bearings with a little PB Blaster.

Got the calipers out and measured OD and shaft size and it turns out the seals appear to be metric. Hard to believe, since it was built in 1948, and the manufacturer (Crown) is a US company. Metric dimensions are within .02mm of my measurements. Imperial measurements were .01" off of the right size. Seals are ordered. I am out $12 for the two seals. O rings I likely have in my kits, except for one large one I may have to hit the hardware store for. Assembly pics will follow in a few days.
