    My 12 ton is leaking around the plunger on the up stroke. Is this a standard O ring or some special part?

    well, you will need a hydraulic fluid rated o ring. not the ones at lowes or home plumbing places. tractor supply will have them, napa also. baum if no where else. carefull of the little ball and spring that may follow the plunger when you remove it.
