THIS week's prizewinner is Mr. J. Wilson, of Workington, Cumberland. He states that the problems of handling the weight of a differential unit during removal or replacement can be overcome by the use of a simple trolley-jack attachment made by welding together an old prop-shaft yoke and a bar or shackle pin of suitable dimensions. This unit is then fitted in place of the normal jack platform and the cliff, flange is bolted to it. Thus the weight can be supported by the jack. As the driving flanges of transmission are becoming more and more standard, one unit can be very versatile.
Comments Handyman: Yet another variation using the trolley-jack, although I have a feeling that the operator would need to lean rather heavily on his end if ever he hooked up an Octopus cliff. on the other.
