Regarding the BRC tools, the jack has been the biggest mystery. The jack is listed in the BRC parts book as manufacture part #19, 3/4-ton, with 14” handle. In the maintenance manual, the photo of the jack is difficult to identify. In my opinion, based on the silhouette of the jack, it looks like a ratchet type with a flat handle.

Bantam used an Ajax #10 ratchet jack with a flat handle on cars in the 1930’s (see Bantam drawing). Walker bought Ajax in 1929. Possibly the BRC jack is a Walker-Ajax #19 ratchet type. If not a Walker-Ajax, maybe someone knows of another jack manufacturer with model #19 that looks like the photo. Anyone with information, please post.

Here are two previous discussions about jacks for the BRC, GP, MA, MB:
