This page is for Enots vehicle car jacks.  Anyone who has any information about the jacks shown, the manufacturer and the vehicles that used them please contact me.  Contact Me

Request to vendors: Please feel free to use the information from these databases in your adverts. An acknowledgement of the source would be most welcome. However, please do not twist any of the information. Where I say along the lines: 'May be for car X' please make this clear in your advert. An altered statement saying: 'It is for car X' will create false facts and misinformation. If you know for certainty a jack's heritage please contact me so that I can amend the entry. Thank you.

Enots Hydraulic

Description:

Cast ENOTS HYDRAULIC JACK. Believed to be cast in brass with a coating on top. Only other details as shown in the photos, although it would appear to be a single hydraulic ram with a manual screw extension. 2 Ton capacity. Height range 7 1/2" to 16 1/8". Hydraulic piston extension is 4 3/4".

One version has come to my attention with a number of stampings. On the pumping moulding is stamped TESTED ON ACTUAL 1 1/2 71A and on the base J.H.B in one segment and in another  J.S.KAYES & SONS. HULL.

Applicable Vehicles:

Understood to be for Bentley 3L, 4.5L, 6L and 4.5L supercharged vehicles. However, the jack is advertised in the Light Car and Cyclecar magazine, suggesting that this jack may not be suitable for these heavy cars.

Jack Handle Type:

Last 4 photos show a single bar (or is joint indistinguishable in photo?) or 2 bars with groove in one end to accept spring loaded locking pin. The whole lot (handles and jack) are contained in a bag.

Year Dates Noted:

1928 - 'The Light Car and Cyclecar' 30 March 1928.
