Went through the flea market and found these two items. First is a gas tank. It looks bad outside, but when I let the sun shine inside I saw galvanized instead of rust. $5  for it with a sediment bowl and shut-off. Got the bowl soaking with carb cleaner in it.

Next is this little unit. Guy said it was a cab lift off a Mack truck. It does work. Looks like about 10" stroke maybe. Haven't ran it out all the way yet as it doesn't want to come down with out some weight on it. Might be able to fab up a small tractor lift with it!

I'll do a little snooping on the lift and see what I can find.

I did some snooping and found the cab lift specs. I marked them with Red in the pics.

That tank is a Wisconsin tank, quite frankly you stole that for$5, that lift would have been used in its past life to lift the cab on a cab over semi, that would make an awesome lift for a dump cart.
