While the universal used to be available by itself, one must apparently now the whole assembly.
Blackhawk has it for $72.50, but a local shop that does hydraulics has the part for $37.50.
Ajax, Walker, and Snap-On had their jacks made by Lincoln, which itself has been sold a few times since my jack was made. I'd like to fix this one rather than buy a Chinese-made import, and will check a few industrial suppliers for the universal-only.
I picked up the universal assembly yesterday for $32, and had a decent talk with the guy who fixes them for a living. In installing the part, I found that the plastic air vent was broken inadvertently, so it will mean one more trip to HISCO.
I have a Grainger account from my plumbing contractor days, but a web search of their site turned up jacks, but not parts.
Comparable USA made, similar quality commercial car jacks cost $500, so fixing it seems better than junking it.
As to whether it will work, well, with these, it either works or it doesn't.
I'd probably jack the car up, and leave it be for half an hour, to test for issues.
Regardless, I wouldn't be working under a jack, but under stands.
This may throw my engine mount install back a week, but there are other items to address. A second trans drain/fill [$7.08 qt in Delaware, no tax; picked up another three quarts, and have most of another quart of Z-1 left], and the windshield clay-bar to remove wiper blade scratching.
On the other hand, I may pick up a jack tomorrow at Sears. From 6pm to 9pm, I can get 10% plus 10% off on anything in the store.
I have a Drednaut 1.5 ton jack that my father bought sometime in the mid 70's and just started to leak H-fluid. The company in the link above is the only one (on the web) I can find that has a repair kit. Thanks for the link!

Ask the local Snap-On guy where to get parts. One steered me to a local pump, jack, press, hydraulic service and parts company called Hydraulic Industrial Supplies Co Inc. [HISCO CO.] It was on the edge oof the industrial area of an older area. The shop looked like it was in it's tenth decade of pump repair, a dim warren of parts bins and greasy benches, dozens of jacks and pumps repaired or waiting for repair.
The universal assembly I wanted was less than half the cost of Blackhawk.
I emailed a buddy in Opa-locka, FL, to ask if he had a tip on a local parts supplier that might help you.
