I think that was a Hynautic system. See if there are long rods that go down the outside of the cylinder to hold the end caps on. If it is a Hynatic system I know a bunch of guys that have them and they really like them.

The only problem I see is you can't get parts for these anymore. I have been looking for some spare rams and havn't seen any for sale. If you get it for the right price go for it. Mine is now 20years old and works just fine still.

If it's used only in fresh water, it will last for many, many years. Salt is a different story. Ed
