I'd love to have it if you still have it, I've wanted a vintage jack to restore for a while, but never could find any near Kansas City, where I just moved from.

The Walker is a 4 Ton unit so it would make it comparable to an S4. You gave me something to think about and play with when I get both of these guys rebuilt.

I attached a couple more pictures. One picture of the Jack's side by side again and one picture of the pump on the walker Jack. Unfortunately the sticker took some damage.

Hi Guys! I'm new to this forum. Was told about it by a guy calling today about an old floor jack I have for sale on Craigslist. It is one I wanted to rebuild, but can't find parts for. I was wondering about this 'Hiball' I keep reading about. How do I get in touch with this individual? Also, this jack doesn't have any markings on it, and under all the nasties, it appears to be blue. And it sorta looks like the green one in the back of the picture on the first page of this thread showing the old jack, and the new red and white paintjob. I'll check back later and keep reading the posts. Cool forum, everyone! Lukus

That's a sweet looking old Weaver unit, perhaps priced a bit high though.

I wonder what the rod on the side of the frame is for. I've seen rods on some older steerable jacks, but the front wheels on this jack look to be fixed.

I dont need it. If I had money to burn I'd nab it for a better price. I'm always looking on CL for old jacks or boxes

Whatsoever you think would be a better price?

that rod is the lock and release. you can see the lever in the shadow. you push it down to lock it in UP mode. then when you squeeze it it lets it down.

Hello Ryan,

Just discovered this site; I have a Walker J-134 floor jack (I believe it's a 1957).

It was used by my Dad at his employer's shop in Houston for many years. When he retired, they gave it to him--by this time it was a leaky mess with the bottom of the tank almost worn through. I brought it to a hydraulic jack shop in Austin and had them rebuild it (that was around 1995).

The one issue the jack has had (and getting worse as time and use goes on) is that it will "creep down". Could you point me in the right direction as to how I can remedy this fault? The jack is terrific other than that.

Thanx in advance.

All these jacks are nice and this thread has brought many 1st-time posters looking for information and seeing the art presented by the Walker (and other) jacks. My husband (BB767) has utilized Hiball's advice, skills and parts with his vintage Walkers. Hiball did wonderful repair jobs for BB767.

To contact Hiball easily, just click on his name and send a PM. He's a wealth of information. He's always watching the forum for info about jacks. All you have to do is contact him.

Between pages 10-88 on BB767's Restored 1930's Auto Shop thread, there are many pictures, including advertising about the different models that may e helpful to some of you who are looking for original colors. Every once in a while we see another one needing a new home. We've resisted...so far. We can only take in so many "orphans" (having a difficult time not adopting more anvils, too!).

Hoist points are located behind the front wheel well at a heavy steel flat and forward of the rear wheel well. Hoist points are illustrated in the '64 T-bird shop manual - in other words, GET THE SHOP MANUAL before going any further! http://www.hts-direct.co.uk/
