    Kiatmura Jig 7 Unclamp Cylinder

    Cylinder is not pushing drawbar far enough release pull stud.
    Construction of cylinder reveals that it is an air oil force multiplier. Perhaps oil is low so it does not develop full travel.
    Any ideas on adding oil?

    Thanks,
    Jim

    There should be a plastic line that comes down from the top left of the head stock to a fitting on the side of the cylinder.

    This 30 year old cylinder has molded seals that we did not even try to replace. We added a once of brake fluid to swell the seals and stopped the leak. Been good for two years so far.
