    Sounds like the seals are tired on the lift cyclinder. Might try searching the question on this forum. I remember seeing someone say there is a trick to getting the O ring seal out and replaced. Replace all the seals, if not, each time it moves it will get a tiny bit of water each time it moves. E- 47's are good pump's I have run one for 7 years without a problem!

    Make sure your ram is not all rusty and pitted. If it is, replace it while your rebuilding it.
