Clark mast seal kit or service kit?


My mast has given up, not staying up so want to replace the seals in it, dont see any on the Clark website - maybe have to contact them, but wondered if there is somewhere else that do them, prob cheaper to? Not done one of these before but how hard can it be!
Its not the scam mast but the smaller, yellow one, I should have made a note of the model!
Any help / advice welcome

probably just uses parts like any oil filled hydraulic ram. possibly just a rubber o- ring to replace. You might dismantle it and take the old seals into any engineering workshop.

I agree, they will be standard seals. Just dismantel it and take them to a seal supplier, even might be able to determine the part number from the seals and buy them over the internet. Should'nt imagine it will too difficult to do emoticon

I can get seals and stuff though work, so if you have any trouble Al give us a shout

Cheers guys, had a quick look and the top pole - the thinner one- just pulled out the top, no seal at all, not good but just sealed it up for now as I dont use the end one as it looks a bit flimsy. Worked fine then so will strip it down after the winter.
