That's some good original Ford parts you bought. Good chance each one will clean up nicely and work well. I use the same screw jack for my Model A's.

Other than the crud on the jack, it looks brand new. It's blue under the gunk. The light switch and starter switch look great on the inside. I don't know how generator cut-outs hold up over time, my generator had a diode, and I've since installed an alternator, but want to see what's inside one.

I need a handle for the jack but don't know what it looks like. The coil is not shorted, measures 1.3 ohms across the primary and 1.345K ohms on the secondary.

I have one of those jacks can't remember where I go it but have had it for many, many years, maybe as far back as the late 1950 or early 60's

Measure the rectangular opening for the handle, then buy a piece of flat bar stock to fit the slot. The original handle may have had an offset and a hex opening for the lug nuts.

The jack appears to be a 1928 - August 1931 AA jack.

Here is a photo of the handles used on this jack:

I saw some old car parts in the darkened back of a garage at an estate sale a week ago. The garage looked right for Model A stuff, and I was pretty excited. But when I got back to it, it was all 1920's Chevy stuff. Nice cowl and instrument panel, lots of carbs, some manifolds, but no good to me. I never seem to find Model A stuff.
