I got caught short with fluid in some bottle jacks. They had sat unused for
mny years wthout so when I got them out, they were so low on fluid that none
of them would rise by more then an inch or so. 2 12 tons and 2 3 tons.
I used leftover brake fluid in one 12 ton and trensmission fluid in one 3
ton jack because I had lttle time left. In a third 3-ton I used thread
They worked fine, but so would water I imagine for theshort time I needed
QUESTION: will those ols used hurt the jacks or seals? Or can I wait til the
weekend ro get the proper oil for them? I'm away from home and won't get
back til this Monday, and I forgot to remove the fluids before leaving.
