I've got an older set of scales that 2 of them aren't reading correct (one reads real low and the other almost zero.)

Is there anyway to rebuild these things without sending them into Speedway to have them rebuilt? Has anyone done it themselves?

I'm trying to figure out why the car gets real loose mid-corner to exit and the first thing I figure I need to do is scale the car...

i've got a set of flexi flyer hydraulic scales. i just take off the plastic cover on the guage and manually zero it. i've checked my scales against a set of digitals and they're remarkably close. i was floored! i just knew they'd be off a ton!

Call around there should be someplace in your area that can repair them. We had ours at a place they said they would send them in. But found a hydraulic place that fixed them on the spot in about 15 minutes. Now they read right on with digitals. Good Luck.

Thanks for the info - I know a hydraulic place that repairs hoses, rams, cylinders, etc. I'm sure it's a seal problem - I'm not quite sure how to "pop" the piston out to get to the seal - I'm guessing using hydraulic pressure to push the piston back up and out?? I guess I'll take it over and see what they say about it.
