Make sure you scrape out and repack the grease in that electric lift before you even attempt to operate it. The grease usually turns to some other unidentifiable substance that science doesn't have a name for yet. There are two really great cub supply sites, one is ccspecialties.or and ihccw.com, they have anything you will need. I just finished a rebuild of a 127 so if you have any questions feel free to ask as it is fresh in my mind.

Do I need to take it completely apart, or just the ram?

Sorry just saw you asked a question, I would recommend a total tear down just because it would be best to discover any problems early. These electric lifts are very expensive to buy and not frequently found in good working order. They can be rebuilt and fairly easy to work on but if you don't catch it on time parts get expensive quickly. Good luck.

Ultrasonic cleaner will make short work of cleaning the gunk out of it.
