I have a red HF air powered ram and it gets air in it almost immediately gets air in it and stops after 3” of movement

Removed it and bled in upright position, put back in and same results, bled in horizontal position and get same results. No leakage and get lots of air evey time i bleed it.

We have a fix in the FAQ on this site. Add oil, one ounce at a time, and test. Bleed if you get air, just like you already have. Some take 3 to 4 ounces. Never exceed 4 ounces beyond factory fill level and do it one Oz at a time. Overfilling can lead to preaaurization of the reservoir.

@joe 4oz did the trick!

interesting how from 1-3 oz had no effect(max bend 30 degrees) and the 4th oz gave it full range of motion!

 

Thanks for the support Joe!
