Leaking cylinder

I came out today to a jack pad with oil on it.. It is almost covered.. I checked all connections and they seam tight.. I will raise the jacks after work and try to twist the ram to see if that helps...

Next step?? Rebuildable?? Or replaceable ?? Which is easiest and fastest while on the road?

Can I top off the fluid with any type of ATF >??

Joe, I find if we're parked long term I have one that will leak, if I wipe off, spray it with silicone spray & run it in & out it will stop. I found that when it won't stop leaking that it's MUCH cheaper to have it rebuilt ($100-150) than replaced ($500-600). I top off my reservoir with 15w motorcycle fork oil. That's what I do, see what others recommend.

That did the trick Danny, Thank You !...Came out this morning and all was dry!

I am packing up at noon, at that time I will re-lube all the pistons yet again for the heck of it..
