    Loosen up the packing nut a bit. Then work it back and forth. If it leaks tighten it down a bit. Once you get it moving it should be fine.

    each piston will have a packing nut . right where the piston comes out of the assembly. Also make sure the piston is smooth , some times if the piston is left exposed they become pitted and rusted . Try cleaning them up and adjusting the packing nut , usally this will take care of it.
