Default 70's Hein Werner 12-A Bottle Jack Filling


Greetings
This old jack still works though slowly>>>I bought some jack fluid and proceeded to fill it when I realized after 20 years that there are 2 chambers, a center column threaded screw and a bottom one the same size.
So with the center one topped off and the jack working now i opened the bottom one to find it empty.
How, do tell, is this unit supposed to be loaded? Or NOT?
Thanks
stm

Lay it down and fill it. Light motor oil, ATF or whatever you have. With the valve open pump it umpteen times to purge and burp air. Then drain a little bit out so it has some expansion space. You should be good to go then.

Never saw the guts of a HW jack although they were made 10 miles from me and some customers of mine worked there. Think of how they filled it at assembly.. Pics?

Maybe double action? I'd put oil in the bottom to see what happens.

Inquired at a H-W associated biz which informs the fluid moves from top to bottom going up and revers when lowering. PRESUMABLY then both chambers should never be filled at the same time. PRESUMABLY.
Thanks Everyone!

Assuming the screw is the fill port, yeah, lay it on it's side and fill it.
Screw back in then open the valve and pump it 20-50 times. Then lay it back down and see if you can fill it more.

If the screw isn't the fill port take the valve out and do it.

Problem is the 12-a is a casting number and not a jack number. They used paper or foil labels to put the model number on.

If you have lots of time, you can try and find a drawing here. http://www.hcrcnow.com/drawings/hein-werner It would help in answering your question on how to fill it.

I have several bottle jacks around here and never thought of filling a "second" reservoir.
I don't think that area is meant to be filled.
