About 30 years ago I modified a bottle jack so that it works upside down. I modified the jack by removing the cover, drilling out the oil intake in the bottom of the jack to accept a length of stainless tubing I had on hand, and pressing the tubing into the hole. Now the oil intake is at the top of the jack. The jack works very well upside down. But I can't for the life of me remember why I modified the jack. I know I didn't do it for fun, and I can even remember making the mod and how I did it. So, why would someone need a bottle jack that works upside down?
