Ram cap remover

This chunky end cap remover can also be used to change engine/hydraulic oil filters. Fewer bruised knuckles, skinned fingers...

One of the more frustrating elements to hydraulic ram repair is trying to remove a stubborn end cap.
So, how to make the job easier? Here’s a home-built suggestion from one of our readers. Take a 20-30mm steel rod, and then weld a length of roller chain on one side and a small lug on the other. To undo the cap, the tool’s owner says that he simply wraps the chain around the cap, attaches it to the lug, and turns in the appropriate direction.
