Default Snap On YA642 Floor Jack Help

Hello Everyone, I've been reading this forum for awhile now and this is my first post. I just picked up a snap on ya642 floor jack this week for $25 so I was pretty excited about that, anyway I flushed the hydraulic system and filled it with new hydraulic oil and now the jack will work fine with no load, as soon as I put a load on the jack it just bypasses ( I can hear it) and aerates the oil, so I guess its time for a rebuild. My problem is I don't know what series the jack is ie.. c d e. The sticker on the side of the jack is there but very difficult to read. So any help would be appreciated. The end of the jack to remove the ram takes a spanner wrench if that helps designate series. Thanks

Post a picture of the bottle and the release. More than likely (99.9999%), it is a re-badged Walker 93642

That unit needs a vent, in place of the screw in the reservoir.
