Re: 1954 Mercury Jack Stowage
Virgil & Sue Klein
The stand for the jack has slots in it. Put the slot on the long end of the stand over the tab to the right rear of the spare tire well and lay the jack down in the trunk. The end of the jack will wind up on the raised portion of the trunk, over the rear axle, in a small depression made for it. The jack mechanism itself should be somewhere near the middle of the spare tire. As to the jacking instructions sticker location, I don’t think it is all that critical put it should be on a flat surface on the inside of the trunk lid over the spare tire. I’m guessing that the factory did not use a template to locate these instructions.
