  1. I should have proof read my post, I meant replace ram and bleed system.
  2. Remove ram from car. remove brass tube from ram (carefully) with wheel puller or very long 8mmx1.0 threaded rod in 'bottom' banjo fitting, Cut brass tube with simple pipe cutter at 1.25 inches from end of large collar side of tube. Clean up id of tube, remove parts, replace two orings on 'gland' (fancy word for piston with seals). Orings from theoringstore.com, 2.4x7.6 mm. part # V2.40X007.6. Expensive part-have sleeve made to cover 'cut' in brass tube and silver solder back together with new seals in place. Assemble ram with long threaded rod and wheel puller. Assemble ram, bleed system.

  3. I just rebuilt mine. Not easy but do-able. The key is cutting the brass 'seal tube' in the correct spot to reassemble properly. Seals are $2.00.
  4. The retracted rams only take about 1 cc at most. I just rebuilt my leaking ram. Requires disassembly of ram and removing the brass tube. Inside the brass tube there are two small metric orings that have to be replaced. This was not an easy fix as the brass tube has to be cut and welded (silver soldered) back together. Seals $2.00. welding $75. Total- $77.00. Most of the fluid goes in the retracted main pump.
