Default "qualified" 2 ton floor jack ball bearings popped

I just got a free floor jack and loosened the "do not adjust" screw...I know I know......laugh now. lol. Anyway I got sprayed with fluid....and two bearings popped out (small and larger), a little spring, and small "T" shape thing, along with the main screw. Problem is...I cant figure out how to put back together and fill with jack fluid...Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to GJ, maple.

I have no idea anything about jacks, except they have their ups and downs But, Hiball would probably have the answer. He is the resident jack expert. He has one thread that I have been following about jack rebuilds. Check it out - "Overseas Jack Rebuild Help Tutorial"

Try hitting Hiball's thread to see if he has your answer. If not, repost your question on the 'General Garage Discussion' section and you will get plenty of answers. Some of which may actually be helpful.

Good Luck and Welcome!

Just remember when using a jack to have a backup system if you are under the car - there was a recent thread about someone being crushed to death when their car support system (jack or stands or something) failed.

Sorry don't mean to be so serious. Can never be too safe out there. Welcome!
