I stand corrected hiball -- thanks for the post. Just so I can get this straight; are you saying that the green Chinese Jack is based on a Japanese Yasui design? Because that Chinese Jack the OP has pictured looks like a dead ringer for the units that HF has on currently on sale. So the HF units must also be a Yasui design ripoff?

Well.. As i stated Earlier there is a member who claims he purchased a Green/White Jack from sears and it was actually a Blackhawk SJ1, I have never personaly seen one that was Green/white. The Majority of the Green/White jacks that sears sold from the 70's on where Yasui designed and could be easily identified by the looking at the Hydraulic unit or the Made in Japan tag. The HF jacks are Yasui designed jacks and are marketed under many different brands including Sears, Otc, torin, Blackhawk, Pro-lift just to name a few. There is nothing wrong with the Yasui design, Its not as Ergonomic and Nice to use as some of your USA branded jacks but in a pinch, Sealed correctly it will do the job quite nice.

And that my friend is why you are welcome wherever you decide to go!  ;D

So you guys wouldnt like me if i didnt have eternal Jack Knowledge?  :'( . The Green/White Sears (Jap) jacks where qualilty units, They utilized Ucups and the steel fitment was 1st rate, They can be rebuild for much less than the current HF 2 ton full-size jack costs.

heck no, i like you cause you have sold me some cool stuff!  thumbsup2

Ran across this while looking for info on the new floor jack I acquired:

I did a google image search for Blackhawk SJ1 and ran across this:





Then I found this over at GJ, it's a Sears 727.12100 and it appears to be a Blackhawk (which unfortunately mine is not I assume), thought it would be good info to know (at least I'll now know a Sears Blackhawk when I see one now although I'd like a confirmation from Hiball that it is a Blackhawk):

YeP, bottom one is a Blackhawk. I'd rather have the first image though.

Walker.... You don't see very many,  I suspect it was a small run.

Woo Hoo!  :mr:

Making it very rare and valuable.  lolx

Thanks! It seems to work okay but I'm missing the handle, the people at the sale said they'll look for it (was a hoarders home), if I can't find it I might hit you up for some measurements (diameter and length) so I can make one.

Several folks nearby have followed this rebuild and now want to get their old jacks running again.  I may be coming back to you for more parts.   ;D

I now know what sizes you need so the process can be streamlined. 

Thanks again. beerdude

I was just wondering if you ever got around to fixing that floor jack   I have the same grey one and it will only lift about 3 inches then stops.

Must have the mute button pushed. First post didn't show anything!
Anyhow, Mickey, I have that jack, only the Walker colors. You need anything I can measure. It should be simple to make as it is a tube with some knurling on the end for grip.

Mickey, don't know how valuable it is, but I've got the Walker version and it's needing a rebuild. The handle on that one would be easy to duplicate as it appears to be a straight tube with a bit of knurling on the handle for grip. I can measure anything you need.

Thanks! It seems to work okay but I'm missing the handle, the people at the sale said they'll look for it (was a hoarders home), if I can't find it I might hit you up for some measurements (diameter and length) so I can make one.
