Default So I picked up the Snap On YA642 jack for $50 I posted about last week

http://www.garagejournal.com/forum/s...ad.php?t=32004

And since





All I did was put it into the garage so far. I'm going to clean it up, change the oil in it. I think it'll need a kit in it though and I'm having a hard time finding one on the 'net.

The serial number is 6642V26088. Model number YA642, series A. 2 ton with a range of 3 3/4" to 20".

You have to put some pressure down on the jack for it to go up, as well as pressure for it to go down.

Once I get it working, should I leave it alone just cleaned up or should I restore it?

Hmmm....hard to say. Get the grime off and you may have a new finish underneath.

How do you lower the arm?? I don't see a mechanism at the bottom of the handle.

I'm sure it is a standard Lincoln jack rebadged oem for snapon; once the cylinder is out, you probably can id it from there or call Snapon for tech support. The parts on Snapon's website are here:http://buy1.snapon.com/catalog/parts...group_id=21744
Aside from the plunger; the parts seem relatively inexpensive through Snapon.

Standard Lincoln parts maybe cheaper elsewhere. I'm sure Elroy can chime in and help as well....

Here is a place that sells Lincoln rebuild kits/parts:

When you rotate the handle, there's a small u-joint, much like a steering u-joint. You can barely see it in the second pic, this is opposed to the daisy gear like to my old jack to the left in the first pic.

I did do a search before I posted, but the closest I came up with was a model number 93642, which I'm guessing is the same thing. I also found label kits, which I took to be replacement stickers for the two on top of the arm.

The handle was a little bent, but I put it in the top end of my cherry picker and coerced it back close to it's original straightness. It still has a slight bend to it, but I think it's only noticable if you sight down it.

You may want to degrease it and try putting grease in the zerk fittings. The greased fittings could help with lowering. Really nice Jack, I would have purchased it at that price. It is well worth the effort to paint and rebuild if necessary. That is a really good find!

My research has shown that my jack is a Series E and requires a 248949 repair kit. This kit is good for both D & E series jacks. The current jack is a C series and takes a 240530 kit. Blackhawk parts has it for $29.77 + shipping, and Ground is $9.25 to me for a total of $39.02. I'm gonna look local first as I'm not in a hurry, still trying to finish the house addition.

Here's a page on the history of where jacks are made as of 2005.

http://www.hyjacks.com/H2.HTM

I'm thinking of having most of it powder coated. It looks like the label kits are for Hein Warner models and not the Snap On model. If I don't do the labels, I may go for a color change. Hein Warner are blue and yellow.



I'm guessing Lincoln's were red with maybe a white handle like this Norco.



I don't care for the powder blue OTC.






I could go hammer tone or a veined finish. Maybe go with a chrome powder coat?

Any suggestions as far as color combos? (Not big into the color orange BTW.)

Well, I did some light cleanup on it, but it's further gone, finishwise.

And the U-joint in question.

Yes. I've noticed this too. Everybody's trying to sell all the old crap they've got. Is anybody buying it? If not, why continue to list it at the same price? I guess if it just sits in the garage, and you've got the space, why not?

Cool jack you found there. From memory, it looks very much like the Lincoln jack I found the other day for $50 also. I plan on rebuilding it sometime. Are you sure you have the right kit in mind? I'll check the one that I bought locally this evening if I remember.
