Is there any Relation between stroke of hydraulic jack and its lifting capacity?

No, not really. Force in hydraulics is only dependent on the force applied to the fluid and the surface area of the hydraulics piston and can be calculated by force in fluid*surface area. This means that the bore which is directly related to the surface area of the hydraulic piston helps to determine the lifting capacity of a hydraulic jack, but that the stroke of the hydraulic jack does not. There are a few reasons however why hydraulic jacks that have a higher lifting capacity might have a shorter stroke. First of all, the greater the surface area of the hydraulic used on the lift, the more fluid must be pumped to raise the lift a certain distance, so you would need more fluid to raise the lift a certain distance. Also, when designing such a mechanism the engineers might have considered the horizontal load on the hydraulic's piston, that might bend it more if the stroke were longer.

How is a hydraulic jack fabricated?

The hydraulic jack is fabricated in pieces and is inserted into the actual hydraulic breaking system of the vehicle. Unions and ball valves along with a directional control valve allow the jack that is mounted on the chassis to be activated with brake pedal access.
