Quickjack and a 42 110

Post by Ajrjer90 » Wed Apr 28, 2021 4:10 pm

Has anyone used the quickjack lift with a 42 or equivalent year Packard. I am looking for a portable lift to use with my Packard since I have low ceilings in my garage. I have a 1942 Packard 110 and need a lift. Any feedback is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I have used the Quickjacks to lift my 1956 400 without any issues. I do have the extended version of the QJ's which is about a foot longer than standard I believe.

I use a Max Jax portable lift. It works great. Puts the car up about four feet.

Thanks for the reply’s, those are the two portable jacks I am kicking around. Has anyone pulled a tranny or did a clutch with either jack? Do you use the truck adapters for your Packard. It looks like it would give you an extra few inches. The Max Jax looks hard to move from one garage to another and the QJ looks easy to move from garage to garage. Does the QJ go high enough to do most of what you want to do. The Max Jax looks to go high enough but is there room to do a tranny or clutch. It doesn’t look like there is. I saw a video where a FWD car had a granny pulled with the MJ.

Thanks again for the reply’s guys.

I used my QJ "ramps" under my 56 400 to remove the transmission cover so that I could remove and clean the tranny filter. I had to remove the starter and drivers side exhaust at the manifold. The QJ put the car a bit over 2 feet in the air providing plenty of room for this job. I used the largest rubber blocks that come with the QJ to get as high as possible. I believe it would be a tight space to drop a tranny or perform a clutch replacement however.
