Look closely at the picture first and then read the story:

This actually happened to an Englishman, in France, who was totally drunk.

 

A French policeman stopped the Englishman's car and asks if he has been drinking.

 

With great difficulty, the Englishman admits that he has been drinking all day, that his daughter got married that morning, and that he drank champagne and a few bottles of wine at the reception, and many single malt scotches there-after.

 

Quite upset, the policeman proceeds to breath test the Englishman and verifies that he is indeed completely hammered.

 

He asks the Englishman if he knows why, under French law, he is going to be arrested.

 

The Englishman answers with a bit of humor, "No sir, I do not! But while we're asking questions, do you realize that this is a British car and my wife is driving on the other side?

Conrad and I just installed a Fiat 127 engine and trans in a 1963 Fiat 500. The original engine and trans are out of the car and can be yours!  Not really interested in money but if there’s some involved, sure, that’d be great. Engine and trans worked, one rocker screw was cracked so we welded it(!) to get the engine running. Buy one rocker arm and one adjuster screw and you’re good. Some misc 500 parts come with if you want. In Berkeley.

 

Contact me if interested. Thanks

I assume you've checked with Axel Kaliske in Seattle? And Erik de Widt is also marketing 2CVs.

If filling the fluid and bleeding it do not work, and it creeps down after pumping it up, then the release valve might not be closing, or a seal might not be sealing.
I doubt that any parts would be available from manufacturer, but generic O-rings can be readily sourced.

The most obvious possibilities is that it may be low on fluid, or it may have air in it. (which will let it pump up, but not under load, as the air is compressible)

With the ram fully retracted, the fluid ("hydraulic jack oil", but some try to get aaway with ATF), should come up almost to the hole.

MOST can be adequately bled by pumping with the filler plug open, . . .

Depending on how far you want to take it I know Gary Dicks in the UK who
could probably source a car and ship it to you and you'd get more car for
your money than what that price will get here. http://www.2cvimports.co.uk

Anyone have, or know of, a later 2CV for sale? My buddy Paul in Portland
is looking for a good driver for a friend. One in the  $10-12k ballpark
would be swell. Prefer a later car with the "big" 602cc engine. Contact me
and I will forward to the guilty parties.

Re: How to fix a Harbor freight 12 ton hydraulic jack

Matthew Spielberg
 

I had a Hoyer handicap lift. Designed for assisting the handicapped in and out of a bathtub. Perfect capacity for use as an engine hoist for little engines. Except for the fact that it leaked down.

I could not find a parts breakdown to locate the check valve, which I assumed needed cleaning and a new ball.

I found a hydraulic shop in Hayward, and left the ram. Yes, the repair would cost more than a new one. Three months later, he had not started on it. Four months later I picked it up. Five months later the shop folded.

BTW, I found a replacement Hoyer lift for free on Craigslist. Still have it. The repair to the check valve is simple, if you can locate it.

there’s a check valve ball in there and it might have a piece of crud..
otherwise, the seal could be blown and allowing leakage..

I rebuilt my 12T jack after watching YouTube vids. There is a good one on bleeding the jacks https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=buo2g5RAZnE  but mine had been dripping oil for the last 15 years. I took my old o-ring to a local o ring supplier and they gave me one for free. The hydraulic o-rings are higher durometer rubber than regular o-rings. My jack works so good now that I bent my chassis trying to press my Isetta crankshaft. Here's another one on dismantle: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M9PYvRhIIls

Larry,

I have a car trailer I’d consider selling. Size is appropriate for Sprite/Midget, Morris Minor or something similar size. It’s very well balanced, light weight and pulls very straight without fishtailing at any speed. It has built in toolbox/compartments on both sides, but the can be unbolted and lifter off if desired. Takes 2” ball and has a folding 3rd wheel that also raises and lowered, making hookup easy as well was making it easy to move when not on s hitch. Tires are brand new too with only a couple hundred miles on them.
