Metallifacture Tilt Action - Ford Thames Van

Description

The jack is a single screw standing 6.75" high, opening to 12". It pivots on the 6" x 3.5" base, presumably to allow the jack body to tilt when raising the axle, thereby maintaining the correct jacking angle. This could be indicative of use with a vehicle with a narrow wheel track. The body is cast METALLIFACTURE down both sides. The base is cast 57 and the number 61 is stamped. Debatable which is the date. The Q2C above has been seen with 2 different cast numbers suggesting that 57 is the date. Interestingly the screw shaft has a stopper pin preventing complete retraction. Photos and information courtesy of NewMoody.

Dave Melton has advised me that this jack is for the Ford Thames Van series, circa 1959. The final picture, supplied by Dave, shows the jack in the van driver's manual.
