Fits over the top of the side of the Hull so you can use the jack (Original jack has a pin hole in the head) to lift the suspension.
Nice piece, if you don't want it I would give it a home...

I also have another tool that the seller didn't know what it is for but I figured out it is to adjust the track tension spring. I have a couple pieces of small sheet metal that I can't find a place for. I will try to post pictures.

That is the only tool I’m missing. Would live to find one but will make a spec one this fall from drawings.

I would like to find some drawings for tools and other things Weasel. Would like the dimensions of the jack. I have an old car jack but it won't work with the idler wheel adjusting tool that I have.

The jack is a Drednaut. Not great photos but should give you an idea:

Thanks for the pictures. I may have to make some tools. I found a jack that looks like the Weasel jack and will make a clevis to attach to the screw.
