Default Hydraulic problems

Looking at getting a 1968 hi-lo. The hydraulic system isn't working, possible motor issue. The concern is after spending the last hour googling parts, I don't see where to buy them. New to hi-lo trailers. Can't find much out about hi-lo stuff. Should I run from trailer, or are there resources out there to help me with my restoration project?

I believe that the axles also are no longer made and brake parts are not available. The hydraulic cylinder can be repaired by most hydraulic shops. The motor is and old auto starter motor. New pumps are available but are expensive and would have to be fitted. Look in the Reference Library on this site.

Default Buying a 1968 HiLo.

I wouldn't recommend you get this old of a unit as the previous poster pointed out brake parts aren't available. It would be a money pit.
