The pumping piston/cylinder is leaking lots of hydraulic fluid up the shaft on some pumping strokes, and is fine on other strokes.
The jack does not leak from anywhere else, it works to jack things up, and it does not seem to sink noticeably on its own.
The tip of the piston's circumference has uneven beveled wear. The piston and cylinder have some surface rust. I don't know how significant these observations are.
My first thought was to replace the o-ring, but it does not look damaged to my eyes, though I might still try to find a replacement if it's worth a shot.
Thoughts on what the issue might be and how to repair it if possible?
