    Default Hi - lift jack

    My hi-lift jack will cycle up, but it will not cycle down.

    One or both of your pins is stuck. Oil them and cycle them back and forth with a screwdriver until they are free.

    LIke I told you in the other thread. Oil the piss out of it. Work the pins with a screwdriver. Wipe all the crap off. Repeat 3 times.
    Then you will be good.

    It doesn't help with the hi-lift very much. But as said above, clean the crap out of the pins.. Its probably not popping out properly (dirt and crap clogged around it). Pressure wash + marvel mystery oil seems to work pretty good.

    If you don't keep your little shaft clean and well lubricated it won't slide in and out of the hole very well and that will of course cause you issues.

    If your jack stays up more than 4 hours, call your physician...

    Maybe the pins are not disengaging smoothly, so lubing them can help.
