Easy to say, but ...
I am retired and in poor health. Can no longer do any serious work to speak of on the car.
What is a "proper jack" and where can I find one? The original was a wierd looking thing, but, having used it a time or 2, I dunno it did any serious damage to the frame.
But it is not replacable where I live (St Louis, MO). I've looked and looked, ran a saved search on Ebay for months, etc. The junkyards around here scrap jacks because they don't want folks on the yard jacking up junkers (maybe an insurance requirement).
Right now it would be really nice if I could mount the donut if I had a flat (without damaging frame)! :-)
