Hein-Werner End Lift Jack (Bumper Jack)

Picked up an antique Hein-Werner 1.5 ton bumper jack.  Hope to use this to get the Camaro higher on blocks before mounting on the Rotisserie.  I have removed the Hydraulic Jack to do some work on it.  Might need to be rebuilt.  Found a seal-kit for it here: http://www.hcrcnow.com/shop/seal-kits/hein-werner/1144

Picked the jack up for $25, but had to drive 4-5 hours round-trip to get it.  For a reference on size – not the orange cylinder off to the side – will need to work on that.

Will take more pics and video later as I do more work on it.  I will be checking the hydraulic oil level first before ordering the seal-kit.

It says it goes 55″ high, but the bumper portion is about half of that.  Note the arms do extend outward…

Inside Shell – 4/5/2015

Went to Harbor Freight to buy a set of scrapers in various sizes for getting in some hard-to-reach spots:

The heat gun, wire brushes, and scrapers I am using to remove the seam sealer.  Not pictured is the lacquer thinner can that I am using to scrub clean after scraping with these tools:IMG_1270

This is the seam sealer I am removing:  Scrape it off and vacuum it up then repeat until it is clean:IMG_1271

These edges take a lot of time and patients:IMG_1272

This is what we are targeting:  No seam sealer:IMG_1273 IMG_1274 IMG_1281

Also the where the package tray was glued down:IMG_1282 IMG_1284 IMG_1286 IMG_1287 IMG_1288

Don’t forget the area by the rear seat – before:IMG_1289 IMG_1290 IMG_1291 IMG_1292

After:IMG_1295I think I am finally ready to scuff the rear section to prep for priming!
