A Question of jacks

Post by BernardSamba »

Hi,

I seem to have a few Bilstein jacks but cannot remember which is for my 63 bus. I am thinking it is the one with the cast head as opposed to the pressed steel type.

Anyone got any ideas?

Thanks

Thanks,
I assume the pressed steel could be bay window versions

The two with the pressed steel heads have nothing on the head but have Bilstein on the cast metal foot and the arm. The arm also has the VW logo.
The one with the cast head has Bilstein in the casting, the arm has only the VW logo and it has a pressed steel foot.

The one with the cast head looks more familiar to me so that means I have two going spare but they are in Southern Spain!
