If not bent then seal might have been unseated during impact might be a quick fix if bent find out how much you have to buy to fix ie: just the ram if all the lot plenty of good grease on the ram to lubricate the seal from both sides run till you can sort in the winter just keep oil topped up.as it gets worse you will have to make the choice of doing an early fix. It will last a while though.

Cheers

I don't think the ram is bent as I put a steel edge against it after impact saw no problems. Looking into a seals kit from the us

That's good news mick suppose by the time you got it stripped down the seal had got memory and stayed distorted.
