Jerry Can :

A jerrycan is a robust [COLOR=#0645ad]fuel[/COLOR] container made from pressed [COLOR=#0645ad]steel[/COLOR]. It was originally designed in Germany in the 1930s for military use and holds 20 litres of fuel. (quote Wiki).

Was it ever produced in India or what were used were leftover from WW II and those produced by other countries copying the same design ?

Hydraulic Highlift Jack, made in Sweden 1957, working at its best.

I remember, as a kid when we used to go on shikars (until the 1972 wildlife act) this was a very important component and must have thing in our Jeeps. Its value was nearly as high as the rifles that were carried by our elders.

I serviced it and changed the O ring and the leather cup washer.

Wow, can we get something like this now. It looks so small and light. I am really sick of carrying the overweight hi-lift jack most of us have.

Lighweight (compared to high lift ) yes . The only disadvantage the hydraulic jacks have is that they cannot be relied to hold load for longer period of time . Mechanical jacks are best suited for this , Specially when you need to go underneath the vehicle .

I have a extreme model it is very heavy , but thease things can hold for hours ( if one needs )

Also as I have altered discs ,this jack can directly lift the wheel .
have a look

Sudarshan,
I popped up my neighbors Jeep and kept it up for more than 30+ minutes, as I wanted to check for leaks under pressure, after replacing the leather cup washer and O ring, leaks were none. The lift capacity of this jack is 1 ton.

No question about its original quality & your workmanship

But I wont dare go underneath, if the car is ONLY supported on ANY hydraulic Jack

Hi all , here is somthing that will be easy on your pockets .I got it 10 years back ( for some 3000, but will be cheaper now ) & using it .This is some kind of combine of a Multimeter & engine analyzer.I have used it extencively from M800 to 3.5 Rover V 8 to Jeep to Landy .

Basic functions & use
1) dc volt meter , check battery condition ( connect to battery & engage starter it will show the voltage on load )

2) check engine RPM ( petrol )

3) dwell angle

4) duty cycle

5) ohm meter/ check continuity

6) diod test

7 ) dc amps ( limited )

have a look
1) the meter

2) packging for use ( protection )

RPM with multi meter ? I dont know , possibly no way .The mm you show is good for electronic/electrical purpose , but what about dwell angle & RPM ?

Some more info , have a look . the inductive pickup ( non contact ) is used for RPM purpose . ( clip it over #1 cyl wire )

Hi all, I would like to draw attention to something useful for any DIYer

I am using a Non Contact RPM meter for years , I use it specially to set Idle RPM of diesel engines ( non ecm type )

I have used it to detect fault in the thermo coupling type radiator fans also .

Its specially useful where you have no other measure to count RPM except visual/optical access to the rotating thing

I purchased this from the electrical market ( heard they use it to count fan RPM )

I am also giving the copy of users manual ,to have better idea as to how it works. ( what one needs to do is to apply reflective tape to rotating part & beam on the red laser light on it for few seconds )

This non contact RPM meter has been used in machine shops for ages. Yes you can measure any uniform rotating bodies with this, after sticking the reflective tape!
