I have a Michelin brand 3.5 ton floor jack that worked great before I went to Germany. When I pulled it out of storage, it's very inconsistent on when it works. It has a speed lift feature, where after one or two pumps and it's touching the vehicle you want to lift. But sometimes it stops there and won't pump anymore. If you let it lower all the way, sometimes it'll work as it should. I have added fluid, but there is something more to it.

I broke down and bought a HF aluminum jack recently, so I just need this one gone. Someone with some Hydraulic knowledge and time could get it running again in short order.

They're not hard to rebuild. Just figure out who actually made the thing and get a rebuild kit from these guys:

I probably should, but if I can unload it before I get to it then so be it!
