Default Can anyone identify this bumper jack?

Would like to know some general information about this hydraulic bumper jack, such as who made it, year it was made, where to get parts, etc. I picked it up for super cheap at a racing auction last Thanksgiving and would like to start using it when I go racing, or sell it if it's worth a lot. The only markings I can see on it are on a riveted tag that reads "2FE 151" Also, on the side of the jack it had a sticker on it that has the letters AV. iIt has a foot pump to make it go up, but it only goes up so far before it leaks jack oil out of the pump really bad. Pictures are attached, and if you need better pictures to verify something, let me know. Would be interested in rebuilding it if possible. Thanks for any help in advance!

Yes.. Yes i Can. Its a Very Old Weaver Jack. Im sure i can get the Seal kit, Ill need some measurements to distinguish the Model numbers but they are fairly Cheap if i recall.

Wow! that's awesome! Thanks Hiball! I had doubts if anyone could tell anything from the little bit of information/pics i provided, but that's great. What measurements would you need to distinguish the model numbers? Let me know where to get a seal kit and possibly an owners manual for this thing. Any idea what this thing is worth if I get it working good? Thanks again!

Its Worth More as a Collectible versus a Useable tool, It wont work on most of your Newer cars and I expect its a fairly light tonnage Rating which really diminishes your Target base for Re-selling. I "Might" be able to find a Owners Manual, And as far as what to measure? Lets start with the Diameter of the Cylinder that is viewable at the Top. I guess if i had to put a price on it.... Ive sold Similar Blackhawk units (Not as Old) for $125 bucks Rebuilt... With a Warranty and Good Wheels. Im Not sure what your Plan is, But if you Decide to Sell it lemme know.
