Parts list is available on-line, kit is expensive, piston has leather cup seal 2-1/4 in diam.
Pump leather is about 1 inch can`t recall. I just finished mine Model 884 4 ton. Kit was 50.00. Now its over 100.00. you need new check valve balls and a couple of springs . Don`t try it if you are impatient- send the cylinder to Tomahawk,Wisconsin and do the rest yourself. Let me know if you need more info. Be happy to help.

Re. Walker 4 ton model 884 Jack- Voris Hydraulics is the parts supplier. Google it and print out the list you need. The model 884 is an awesome jack but very heavy about 250 pounds . It extends 24 inches and pumps up in 5 strokes. The handle has 3 positions note the excess wear on the handle and handle segment for excessive wear- you may need to install bushings .

I think mine may be vintage as it is 47 years old now.It is a Milwaukee Hydraulics model 40 it will lift 24in with a 4in lowered height and 31in Chassis Length. The ram is 2.5 in diameter and a dual hydraulic pump. Maybe I will give it a coat of paint to make it pretty again.

Since this thread is about vintage floor jacks this would be the place to show how, say a vintage Walker Big Boy from the 1940's can go from...



...as found in the old shop to...



...this. The restored jack is on the left and the one in the rear is the same model, an all original Walker 4 ton manufactured in the late 1930's. That's the original Walker paint scheme from the 1940's but in this case is powder coated for durability. If you have an old floor jack I highly encourage you to restore it.



From a hopeless mess...



... to this when completed with care and attention to detail. For those not familiar with how that jack was restored, details with lot's of pictures can be found on the Restored 1930's Auto Shop thread in the Garage Gallery forum, starting on page 22, post # 421 and then continuing for several pages off and on, essentially finishing up on page 173, post # 3460.

Just picked up a Walker J-132, looks like I need the cover pannel.
General question, this is a 2 ton, is there anyway to upgrade this to the 4 ton model?

Ok I made a thread about this floor jack early then tonight saw this thread. Very cool floor jacks, trying to figure out what mine is. Its heavy, rolls smoothly, goes from about 6" to 24 1/2" tall, pumps up effortlessly and need to bring the handle all the way down to lower it. Bought it from a lady who she said her grand dad used it to lift his tractors on the farm for many years. Any insight would be great. Either way the jack works great and I expect to get a lot of use out of it over the years.

How about a vintage "air bumper jack".
This 1966 Gray jack was easy to restore since the company is still in business and
has the main components available.

Nice old jack... I believe your unit is a Hein-Werner model "H". These are rated as a 3 ton jack.
