Ram motor removal

Recommended Posts

Hi

What is the best way to remove the motor for my ram for reconditioning . Can I disconnect the ram from the bed, then lift the bed by some other means to get access?

I'd lift the ram, prop it up with something sturdy then disconnect it all. The motor is separate from the pressure valve on your pump so it'll hold the pressure whilst you remove the motor.

 

Are you sending it off for reconditioning, if so I'd only remove the motor, don't try to strip it out as there's a million little springs that you'll never get back in place. Learnt that from experience 🙃

Thanks. I'm not going to attempt to reconditioning it myself. I was wondering if I had to disconnect the pipework before lifting the bed. It's single action, so only one pipe

Oh, if you are taking the whole pump off, not just the motor then yeah you need to disconnect the pipes with it down, or there will be one hell of a mess as the oil sprays out.

 

I can take my ram off with it in the upright position so I didn't have to worry, if you cant though then you need to take the pressure off the ram somehow.
