Is it possible to straighten a bent left hand
hydraulic lift rod fork. Mine is curved about 1 1/2
inches off of straight. It works okay the way it is
but looks bad. What would be the best way without
breaking it ?

Press or beat the crap out of it with a BFH in a flat surface such as a railroad track. watch out for trains!

the adjustable fork ( the side witht he leveling box ), i believe is cast steel. I have welded them and they weld easilly without cracking... the threaded rod is steel of course. the non adjustable side i've welded as well. not sure what it is.. but i don't think it's cast iron. perhaps c/s or f/s

20 Ton Press worked great for straightening the left non-adjustable side.
