One of the things in my shop always getting in the way (umm ... well, I COULD move it so it doesn't lean up against my work bench!) ... is an old display of Model T wrenches:
Can anyone confirm they are labeled correctly?
(given enough detail in the post ... )
I suspect I would want to keep these if I plan on rebuilding my motor anytime soon??!!
Oh, well... bummer .... guess I need a better picture!
The #2335 wrench is very common (one came with every car) and can be had cheap. The others are shop tools, and harder to come by. See pages 41-42 in the 8-5-28 Ford parts book.
Thanks, Steve ... the 2335 is the one all the way to the left?
Yep. Spark plug/head bolt. That version of it is from the twenties.
Correct me ifn I'm wrong but the one on the right looks like a spud wrench, not a Model T wrench.
I planted a lot of potatoes in my time and I have never had to use a "spud wrench"
The one on the right looks like 5Z-210 for fly wheel cap screws. Do any of these tools have numbers on them? #2335 usually does, but not always. How about the rest of them?
For those of you that don't know what a spud wrench is: http://www.ebay.com/itm/2PC-IRON-WORKER-SPUD-WRENCH-CONSTRUCTION-WRENCH-1-1-4-1- 1-8-NEW-/170848040762#ht_643wt_679
Steve, et al ... I'll take some better photos tomorrow, and will jot all the numbers down. Thanks!
A tiny bit OT but when I was driving from Brownsburg, IN to the museum in Richmond,IN last Wednesday I stopped at a HUGE antique mall in Centerville. Saw a hubcap wrench marked for a Fordson priced at $49.95. Then I remembered I saw another wrench looking exactly like it in another booth. I walked real fast looking for it until I found it and, sure enough, had the 'Fordson' script on it and was priced at $4.95 . . . . Guess which wrench I bought? (I have a '19 Fordson)
Reminds me of the carburetor I saw at Iola a couple of years ago. It was an ordinary Holley G. The price on it was $235! I asked the guy why it was priced so high, and he explained, "That's a three-screw carburetor." I went down the hill and bought one from another guy for ten bucks.
OK ... some better photos (I hope)!
