Wanted: Bumper J-Hook for 1960 Pontiac


Need at least 1x (prefer 2) bumper jack hook. Can pay via PayPal. Sample photo is correct for 1960. Located in New Zealand. Any help appreciated as I have 3 1960's and 1 jack hook to share between them hmm confuse

You may not want to use them on a bumper, may cause damage and much less stable than an axle jack. I use CAA in case of a flat, do you have something similar?

Am running 235 70 15 tyres so an axle jack makes it difficult to get the wheels off at all. Being wedding cars if in the event of a flat tyre on the job waiting for roadside assistance is not an option. I have one jack but with three cars I'm pushing my luck.

Sounds logical. My 59 El Camino I think was worse than your 60, with big back tires I always had to lift on the frame. Easy to do in the garage.

Use axle jack, get wedding party to lift on the rear bumper until the wheel falls out, make the wedding a bit more "special". A little grease never hurt a wedding dress IMHO.

Good idea Don. Shouldn't be a problem with the grooms party, bridesmaids could take a bit more convincing

This jack from Chevy might be a better bet as it goes into a hole in frame.

A lot more stable. I use these on my Beaumont and Chevelle.

Forgot to add that I believe they were used 75 to 85 on some full size Chev's

As long as they don't start leaning when they have the weight of a car on them. I've ruined a couple that way. And you are sure right, a lot better than a bumper jack. Those are an accident waiting to happen.

Have not seen one of those jacks before Brian, would they work on a X chassis? Carl I agree with you regarding the bumper jack being an accident waiting to happen but in the absence of anything better all I can do is minimise the risk by chocking the wheels and changing the tyre on a flat surface.

 .......that's correct - I've tried these and cannot get them high enough on an X frame,

tried a piece of 2 x 6 under it still no go and then it got real wobbly........YIKES!!!

 Can't it still be used by putting a thick aluminium (or even wood) plate or disc  over top of the round plug,

with a hole in the plate to cover the plug, giving a flat surface to put under the frame?

Or even welding a flat plate on the plug?

Can't do frame............How about putting it behind the wheel instead of the frame?

these were used on 1982-92 Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet GM cars.....Part No.   14030628 Car Jack & Wrench

Haven't come across any of those jacks down here so will have to stick to the bumper jack. Just need one more J hook.
