Found this jack at a junk store but...no handle. Can anyone share a photo of the correct handle.
I'm sure I'll never find one but may be able to fabricate something that will work.
Thanks in advance.

Hi Mike,

"vintage shelley 2 piece jack handle" google it. It's on E bay in England. I don't know if it's the right one or not.

Mike,

The jack you have come upon looks like a Shelley LJ 21 which was the correct jack for most 100 series cars and early 100/6 cars. The handle on EBay is right for the jack but the wooden handle is missing. I have a little more information on Healey jacks and a photo of the handle somewhere which I'll post a little later

Cheers
Geoff

Mike,

Further from my last posting on the subject.............there is a website which will save me a lot of explanation and give you the full story............Go to www.classic-british-car-jacks.uk................There are pages of different jacks and on page 3,4 or may be 5 you will see the details your require.

Good browsing and hopefully this is the solution to your question.

Cheers
Geoff

Just for Grins - Ever tried to find a Shelley Jack Handle? Like trying to find a lost sock. Where do they go? Going to see if I can get a 1/2" socket speed wrench to work, maybe with a little nudge from my grinder. After I do that, the correct handle will present itself. Life works that way - Jake

I've got a 7DL for my BN6 that's also missing the handle. Been looking for 8 months. No luck yet. If I haven't found one by the time I complete the restoration (next Summer, maybe, I hope) I'm going to take a shot at fabricating my own.
