Tongue jack removal from 74 overlander

Hello,

I thought it is easy but I guess it is not. I am trying to remove the power tongue jack. I removed the screws and tried to pull the jack through the hole. It looks like there is a ring folded around the tube preventing the jack to get pulled out. Does anybody know how to get the jack out before I start taking the whole thing apart.

Thanks

You are right though, should be 3 bolts and lift off. There are so many different jacks out there though it's hard to tell.

I wonder if there were 2 halves on this model, with the bottom tube bolting up to the bottom of the A frame the bolts holding the two halves together.

Rust maybe. May need a big hammer. If it isn't rusty underneath, add a photo. Never saw one that wouldn't come out after removing 3 bolts.

AS used smaller dia. jack than is av. now. There is a ring in bottom hole. It takes a little effort to remove jack, this ring is not needed for larger dia. jacks. Top hole, no filler ring hole is same as bottom with ring removed, even tho hole is bigger bolts hold jack centered. You will probably ruin old jack removing.

If the tube is deformed you may have to saw the lower portion off. This happened on my 1975 AS as a result of not retracting the jack one time. Expensive lwsson learned!!!
