Colour scheme maybe? IIRC the Snap On jacks have the model and warnings painted on. I know exactly what it was because I was looking at this exact jack for my friend. We were going to buy new lol. Then this popped up.

The rebranded Snap On's use an universal joint for the release. The Norco 71230 uses a gear type release. Easy to spot if you look at the handle yoke or holder, but of course, you need to know of that difference in advance. Also, the top flange on the Lincoln's, Hein Werner's, Snap O's is straight. The Norco flange is not a straight line but it has a slight turn along its length.

To make things more interesting, there is a company called PROJACKS that makes a jack that is very similar to the Hein Werner. The difference in the body is that the flange has less width. Also, the pump looks the same as the Hein Werners. However the Projacks pump has some internal differences. It uses the cheaper o-ring and o-ring retainer instead of an u-cup. On the good side, it has seals for the oil tank (both ends) and it also has a sealing washer for the cylinder. The Lincoln, Hein Werners do not have seals for the oil tank nor for the cylinder, requiring that these be tightened to higher torque values to prevent leaks.

Shinn Fu also made a Blackhawk BH 6020 floor jack which was the same as the Hein Werner 93642 but it was made in China. It was red in color.

Thanks EDGAR, I think I have one labeled as Western Auto, based on the other description of using a gear for the release. I got mine at a garage sale for $50 and works great.

When you have torn down as many of them as I have the differences are quite easy to spot, as already mentioned the release mechanism/frame was a dead giveaway based off the limited pictures. In Lincoln's hay day (prior to shinn fu) they where selling the design to many different brands with subtle changes, Blackhawk at the time was searching to fill voids in there catalog which is why you see weaver and Lincoln in blackhawk color schemes, Lincoln compared to walker was very good at marketing there product line.

Ya-700 Should be Oem'd walker/Lincoln/HW with the exception of the "c" series in which I believe is a import. A picture will be more helpful, you can send it in a PM if it's a auction/Cl ad your wanting to keep hush/ hush .
