    I would say that whoever worked on this last overtightened the 3 nuts... they only get somewhere around 10 to 12 inch pounds...

    Do not allow your ram to fully extend.Shorten your chain so that the a-frame hits it's stops before maxing out the ram. This will keep the ram from using the cap as a stop. Continual hitting of the cap with the ram will end up breaking it.
