Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2018: "Ford Script" Jack
Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Gene Emering on Wednesday, January 17, 2018 - 06:20 pm:

Under the rear seat cushion of my recently purchased 1924 Touring, I was happy to find this "Ford" script jack and a few "Ford" script tools.
Being new to Model Ts, I am wondering if this jack is complete?
Did all Ts come with jacks and tools as standard equipment?
Did Ford sell tools in sets as accessories?
If so, what does a complete set look like?
Did a set come in a canvas pouch of some kind?

Thank you,
Gene

Looks complete to me. Oil/grease it up and try it. Safety first, inspect for cracks.

Yes, be careful as with any jack. But I think they are good jacks. I carry a couple of 2 x 8 wood blocks so I can have a level base under the jack.

Our Canadian sourced came with a jack most often supplied by Auto Specialties. They are similar in construction and work in the same manner. Steve's wood block is an essential as far as I am concerned. The footprint of these jacks is minimal at best.

I bought a US T jack at Chickasha in 2010. I was amazed to find a different cast in part number on every component part of the jack. I have never seen individual parts listed in any parts book.

They look simple which is good but the pawl has only a small portion of the gear to use or it will slip.Like everyone else say's the footprint is very small espc on dirt! Bud.

Steve J. - Your comment about carrying a couple 2"x 8" wood blocks deserves some thought. In the interest of "space saving" and not carrying any more than necessary in the limited storage space of most Model T's, I think sometimes you can carry a couple of those "wood blocks" of a shape, form and size that can be handy for a number of purposes/uses. I carry a couple "wood blocks" each in the form of a crescent, which, with a Model T jack, work better for mounting tires than an iron "rim spreader" for tire work out on the road (an idea I got from this forum) and they can also be used as wheel chocks, or placed flat on the ground with straight sides together, as a base for a jack, or at least half a dozen other handy uses one might find for a couple blocks of wood,....FWIW....harold

I have several of these jacks, and they are dangerous, and yes, each and every piece has a casting number.
