A frame jack

My jack has frozen up by rust. Motor is still good. Where can I get the replacement of just the jack? Thanks

Being the cheap skate that I am, I would remove the screw mechanism and get a manual jack from Northern Tool and convert it to where it fit your motor. The jacks are all acme threads and can be interchanged relatively easily.

Point being made is OP can repair the jack without going back to the mfg for an expensive replacement. If the screw mechanism on either type is not kept lubricated, they will both fail.
