Hydraulic Pump

Recommended Posts

Has any used the hydraulic pump and cylinders off of an automotive convertible to lift implements? They are 12v, have 2 way cylinders, and are very strong. Picked up a 48" mower deck and 42" rototiller right off the ground very quickly (not at the same time) with one cylinder. Just a thought. Ryan

I never tried it but don't know why it won't work. Two tips: 1) A direct wired switch may not work. Some of those convertibles used a switch and a relay. 2) Be careful adding hydraulic oil. Some of those convertibles used brake fluid.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
