Manitou MB20:
Mast ram seals

The seals on my ancient MB20 all terrain forklift have started leaking badly after sitting idle outside for a couple of years. I have disconnected the top of the mast and removed the old seals. (do these seals tend to dry out when not used?)
Could anyone please tell me if there are seals at the bottom of the mast?
Any idea where I can get new seals from? Delivered to France.

Hi, I've just joined this forum looking for information on an old Manitou forklift. Plate on the side says MC55H and I think its around 1968-1972 ish. I notice you are also in France and was wondering if you found any help for manuals or parts etc. My steering hydraulic block at the steering wheel has blown the seals and the shaft is worn. I can't find any information which surprises me as Manitou is a French company but seems to have no internet presence for old machines.
Old is good
