PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
ARI hetra Telescopic Transmission Jack is designed to be used as an aid in the removal and installation of
automotive and light truck transmissions, transfer cases and transaxles. It is intended for use under an overhead lift
or in a garage pit. Ensure that your air source can dedicate 7.8 CFM @ 90 - 175 PSI. To ensure dependable,
trouble free operation an inline air dryer and oiler is recommended.

BEFORE USE
!
1. Inspect jack before each use. Do not use if bent,
broken or cracked components are noted. Ensure
that casters move freely. Check for and tighten any
loose assemblies.
2. Verify that the product and the application are
compatible, if in doubt call ARI hetra Technical
Service (800) 562-3250.
3. Pour a teaspoon of good quality, air tool lubricant
into the air supply inlet of the lift control valve (See
Illustration). Connect to air supply and operate for
3 seconds to evenly distribute lubricant.
4. Air actuated product is fitted to accept the popular
1/4" PT air nipple. When installing 1/4" PT nipple of
your choice, ensure thread sealing compound is
used when servicing connections. Be careful not to
allow compound to enter lift control valve orifice.
Application of thread tape is acceptable, but ensure
that it is not applied beyond the last machine
thread.

WARNING
Study, understand, and follow all printed materials
provided with/on this device before use. Do not
exceed rated capacity. Use only on hard, level,
seamless surface. Use of this jack is limited to the
removal, installation and transportation of
transmissions, transfer cases and transaxles.
Adequately support the vehicle before starting repairs.
Failure to heed these markings may result in personal
injury and/or property damage.
! Safety Messages !
Ensure the center of gravity is centered on the saddle.
Use only chains and slings provided. If loaded jack
must be moved, make certain that load is secured by
appropriate means, is stable, is in lowest possible
position. This is a lifting and lowering device only.
Transfer load immediately to appropriate support
device for service or repair. No alterations shall be
made to this product. Only attachments and/or

Raise saddle:
1. Pump foot pedal or squeeze lift control valve until
saddle reaches desired position.
2. Follow vehicle manufacturers recommended
procedures for removing the load as outlined in
vehicle service manual or repair guide.
3. Secure load with provided restraints. Ensure load's

Be sure all tools and personnel are clear before
lowering load. Dynamic shock loads are created by
quickly opening and closing the release valve as the
load is being lowered. The resulting overload may
cause hydraulic system failure.

MAINTENANCE
Figure 1 - Model AH-26576 Nomenclature
Important: Use only a good grade hydraulic jack oil.
Avoid mixing different types of fluid and NEVER use
brake fluid, turbine oil, transmission fluid, motor oil or
glycerin. Improper fluid can cause premature failure
of the jack and the potential for sudden and immediate
loss of load. Periodically check for leaks at air
connections. Replace connections as needed.
ASSEMBLY
Refer to Figure 1 and Figure 2:
1. 3 major parts should be included in package: (a)
Hydraulic unit with pumping mechanism, (b) saddle
unit, and (c) 2 pieces of base half with hex socket
bolts and washers.
2. Attach either one of the two base halves to the base
of the hydraulic unit, then secure using allen head
bolts and washers provided. Then apply the same
procedure to the other base half. Attach side
braces conecting base halves and power unit, then
secure using allen bolts provided. Tighten to 30 ft.
lbs. Do not overtighten.
3. Move the saddle unit above the ram piston, place
the saddle socket onto the ram piston. Secure
using the set screw (allen head).
4. Remove oil filler screw. This will allow any
pressurized air to escape.
5. Ensure oil level is just below the rim of the oil filler
screw hole. Reinstall the oil filler screw.
Adding oil
1. With saddle fully lowered, set jack in its upright,
level position. Remove oil filler screw.
2. Fill until oil is level with the filler screw hole, reinstall
oil filler screw.
Note: Dispose of hydraulic fluid in accordance
with local regulations.
Changing oil
For best performance and longest life, replace the
complete fluid supply at least once per year.
1. With saddle fully lowered, set jack in its upright,
level position. Remove the oil filler screw.
2. Lay the jack on its side and drain the fluid into a
suitable container.
3. Set jack in its level upright position.
4. Fill with good quality jack oil. We recommend Mobil
DTE 13 or equivalent.
Note: Before initial use, turn oil filler screw
counterclockwise carefully, but no more than 1 full
turn.

MAINTENANCE (continued)
Cleaning
Periodically check the ram for signs of rust or
corrosion. Clean as needed and wipe with an oily
cloth.
Lubrication
1. A periodic coating of light lubricating oil to pivot
points, axles and hinges will help to prevent rust and
assure that wheels, casters and pump assemblies
move freely.
2. When used on a daily basis, this jack should be
internally lubricated before each use. Use only
good quality air tool lubricant. If no inline oiler is
used, pour a teaspoon of air tool oil into the inlet of
the air supply inlet. Simply operate the jack using
the air feature in order to fully distribute the oil.
Note: Never use sandpaper or abrasive material on
these surfaces !
Storage
When not in use, store the jack with saddle in lowest
position and air supply disconnected.
