    Have not owned this truck very long and neeed it to dump a load when asked. Mounted on a 86 GMC K35, a Heil dump body PTO shaft drive will barely lift the bed when empty. Pump itself drips fluid and is stiff and hard to control with cable from cab as well.
    Does anyone know of a rebuild kit, or source for rebuilt Heil pumps? Thanks.

    I'm sure they are available, but it seems like you are low on fluid right now, you usually add the fuid to the ram with body in raised position. those old cables are always hard to move

    Go to Amthors in Walden, NY. They are a huge Heil dealer-will take good care of you.
