New A-Frame Jack for 1972 Compact Jr.

Does anyone in the Compact world know what size/brand of jack fits the original bolt holes on the Compact Jr. There are many on amazon to choose from. Has anyone else replaced theirs on the original tongue?

Based on pictures in the Gallery, it looks like an industry standard tongue jack with 3 bolts. Any three bolt A-frame jack should do.

Welcome to the forum.

My Compact Jr has the original tongue jack. The upper tube diameter is 1 3/4". The common jacks have a tube diameter of approx. 2 1/8" and will not fit through the openings in the Compact tongue. This one might work.
