Hi Tony,

Thanks for the info. I have read those threads and a few more references but still looking for....

Bob answered the question about the trunnion difference between SJ jacks and Dearborn/Metuchen jacks (thanks Bob!), but the 65/66 flip-top variation I'm still unclear on. I'm referring specifically to SJ jacks here.....from what I've read typically the 65 jack has the longer flip-top and the 66 a shorter flip-top, all other things being equal. But, I've seen several examples of mid-late SJ 66's with original long flip-top jacks. Just trying to figure out how year specific the flip-top thing is, or if that stuff is still unknown.

Thanks,
Dave

Dave, Also, Don't forget to go into the "Library" articles section on the website.  There is a great .PDF article on '65-'70 Jack identification by Marcus Anghel..  The weblink to the 1966 articles list is below:

Hi Tony, thank you very much for the links, very nice info.
Alright, I have no doubt my jack is a original SJ from its shape, but I can't find any A mark on it.! I have checked all places, specially in the flip top but nothing, look alike no marks on it. Is that common or it must have a mark..? I don't think it has been repainted so.. the lug wrench (replacement tool) has a A inside the handle, but I can't see it on the jack.

Tony,

Thanks, I have read Marcus' '65-'70 Jack identification Guide as I mentioned in the opening post to this thread. That is the primary reference I'm using for the long flip-top being used for 64.5-65 and the short flip-top used for 66. But since I've seen several later 66's with original long flip-top jacks, including Josep's car, the question remains if both style flip-tops were used, and considered correct, for 66. Unless I missed it I have not seen that question specifically answered.

Thanks,
Dave

 Ok, not trying to "muddy" this puddle up any more but, I have a few jacks that all came out of either Metuchen or Dearborn cars (makes sense since I'm in Maryland). They are all the large coarse thread jacks with the "block type" end which Bob states is typical of Dearborn. Is it safe to say that the "U" style end vs the block type AND small threaded shaft are common to SJ cars???? ???

Here is a pic from one of the prior threads where this is apparently from an original owner April 66' built Metuchen coupe.

Hi Guys,
Interesting subject, thanks Dave. I have two jacks, both with the long flip top.
-1 marked RH and fine thread screw
-1 marked A and coarse thread screw
Both have a U shaped brackets in each end and these brackets are turned towards the
outside and not like the inside on one end as in some of the pictures shown
Which one is correct, if any? for my 65 early May GT350
Thanks, Texas Swede

On the subject of threads, take a real close look at them. They are a "double thread", for each full turn of the rod, 360 degrees, there are two distinct threads cut into the rod. The thread type is called Acme, but this thread has a slight dip on the crown, the pointy top. An Acme thread was designed for power, extra load bearing, and the double thread part for speed. To verify this, use a piece of chalk to mark any one thread's crown while you turn the rod. In one full rotation, you will skip a thread.

The RH marked jack would be the least likely IMO for your 65 GT350.

Ha,ha, Murphy's law again as the RH marked is the one restored and in my car now.
The A marked needs a complete cleaning, paint and sticker.
Well, just to get to work.

Many if not just about all of the parts suppliers carry them. Some are truer to the original than others. There are two to three different major producers of stickers. Some produce more/different stickers while they also produce some of the same. Jack stickers have been reproduced for over 35 years
