Hi, they dont make seal kits for jacks but one thing you can do is if you take the seal out it will either be a rubber o ring type or copper ring type take this out then go to a car spares shop and buy the same type of o ring doing this will solve your problem, most parts in these you can buy off the shelf so take the seal out and go to a car spares shop or hardware store and ask them to match one up for you, make sure its the exact same size etc and you should find this will stop the leak and fix your problem.

let me know if you need further assistance ok

How to overhaul/ repair a hydraulic floor jack?

Sounds like a bad seal on that plunger that pumps up and down. That plunger should unscrew and then it's pilled out , there should be an O ring. That is where it probably is leaking. You probably need to top off oil. You can jack oil in an auto store or Lowes, etc.

Sears 11/2 ton floor jack

Is there anywhere that you can tighten the seal retainer if not needs a new seal . My experience is that a seal kit is as expensive as buying a new jack plus the work that goes into it. Look up how much to buy a new one and a set of seals then decide

Transmission seal is leaking. It appears

To replace the front seal, it's a bit involved and you'll need the proper equipment and tools: Floor jack, transmission floor jack, jack stands to get the truck elevated enough to pull the tranny.
IF it's an automatic, you'll have to take the bellhousing loose from the motor, driveshaft(s) out, remove tranny and torque converter, all lines, linkages, drain oil.
If you don't have much mechanical experience, you may want to have someone else tackle it for you. It's doable, but it's a bit of work.
If you're going to attempt the repair, I would recommend purchasing a repair manual such as a Haynes, or possibly a CD service manual. The step by step instrucitons would get you through the job, plus you'd have access to oil and torque specs to do the job correctly.
ps: if this is the REAR seal, it's a simple job of dropping the driveshaft and replacing the seal.
