We clarify how the natural transformations of fiber product preserving bundle functors on the category of fibered manifolds with m-dimensional bases and fiber preserving maps with local diffeomorphisms as base maps can be constructed by using reductions of the r-th order frame bundle of the base.

Higher order jet involution
We introduce an exchange natural isomorphism between iterated higher order jet functors depending on a classical linear connection on the base manifold. As an application we study the prolongation of
Weil bundles as generalized jet spaces
We generalize the concept of higher order velocity and we interpret a Weil bundle as the space of A-velocities for an arbitrary Weil algebra A. We deduce geometric results on Weilian prolongations of
Torsion-free connections on higher order frame bundles
We deduce that torsion-free connections on the r-th order frame bundle P r M of a manifold M can be identified with certain reductions of P r+1 M. They are also interpreted as splittings of T*M into
