floor jack leaking--can it be fixed?
I thought it was the fill plug leaking. Got to cleaning it up and really looking at it, and it's leaking around the rod that pumps it up. It will lift a short way, then start leaking around the rod. I got my money's worth out of it ($29.95 20+ yrs. ago), just don't want to spend limited budget on replacement if it can be fixed. Here's a couple pictures:
Any ideas on a fix? There is no o-ring on this rod, and I can't figure out how it was ever sealed in the first place.
Thanks for any help you can supply
