Looking for a jack that will lift the 1926 Roadster at the frame. Then jack stands high enough from floor to frame - approx. 28 inches.
I don't know of any jack that can sit on the floor and reach the frame to lift the car. I use a engine hoist to pick up the rear of my cars after removing the floor board below the rear seat. A chain around the center of the rear cross member / spring can be used to hoist the entire car.
The truck jack stands shown work great to support a T frame:
You need to place them just forward of the radius rods so the rear axle can be pulled out.
Steve Jelf made some nice stands and a jack fitting, see them in use here:
Worn out rear axle halves on end work nicely
Hmmm, now where could one find extra rear axle halves?
I mentioned awhile back that I had just found that with a small bottle jack and two ft. of allthread you can have a jack to lift the body clear of the frame. Unscrew the adjuster from the jack and insert the right size dia. allthread, no it does not have to be an Acme thread. I think mine is 5/8 dia. Even get a few large nuts to fit the all thread and it becomes adjustable.
One thing that my father I use that is very handy are 2 x 12s that are cut into 11.25" x 11.25" x 1.5" squares.
For example, if we need to get some extra height, we stack them under the jack or jack stand.
Sometimes when working on our modern cars, I have used them in lieu of jack stands.
