Just had a look at an early Falcon bumper jack. It is mechanical, not hydraulic but the foot plate looks exactly like the one in your photo. I suspect John is right to suggest it is a ring-in.

The Ford wallaby one with my Falcon had a claw fitted under the bumper.I found the hydraulic hi lift ones bloody dangerous,and very easy to slew sideways and the car come down.......the arm thing that stuck out wasnt meant for a car,far as I could see...the army had hundreds of them,assume for cars,as the rovers had their own little 2 1/2 ton pommy jack.......incidentally,the pumping unit off the top was used by Leader for their cab tilt pump on the early trucks.

Thanks guys... Bloody amazing... I had a feeling something wasn't right about the base plate.... But it'll do for what I want.... It's gunna be more a support leg than a lifting jack... Basically to stop the Ute leaning over when I lift.... Currently have a 40mm box section leg with holes and a pin... Which is never exactly the right height as I need

When you follow the history of Lightburn you will find that they made commercial/industrial washing machines based on the style of concrete mixers with a small spin dryer in front of the barrel. Mum first saw them in a caravan park we used to go to each year at Harrington and when we got home it must have been an impressive unit as Dad had to buy one for us at home. It lasted for many years and when Mum decided it was time for an automatic machine the Lightburn was sent to the back yard and was used for Dad and my overalls. The thing was bullet proof but not rust proof and was its final downfall.

The crane is rated at 900kg, the hand winch at 1000kg (has 1:1/1:5/1:10 ratios) and the jack at a bit over 1000kg... More than enough for wood carting. ;)

Was it an ' up;ifting ' experience?

That is how I thought it would fit into the base and pivot for uneven ground. Great find and job at installing it.

One thing I leant real quick was to kick the base out a bit as ya take the pressure up.... They get a bit of a bend in em if ya don't.... About an 11/16 ram and it flexes a bit.

Gunna run it next weekend in the bush and see how it goes before I give it all a coat of jam
