Is this the exhaust pipe nut wrench? I know there is a list of tools somewhere but I am apparently suffering CRS this am.
No, the Ford parts book shows 5-Z-204 for the exhaust nut wrench. It doesn't show 5-Z-1288.
The listing says the wrench is 1-11/16". I believe the exhaust nut wrench is 2-1/8."
Whatever it is don't pay that outrageous price for it. Some one will chime in identifying it by the number if possible but I think 1 1/16" is too small for an exhaust packing nut wrench. If the packing nut wrench is what you want Snyder's and others carry them. About $34.00 new. A large adjustable works great also.
I payed 15 for my exhaust pack nut wrench at a swap meet. The guy knew what it was and I need one to add to my tool kit. Very happy to get it.
Do people really get $125 for an old wrench like that?
If so I have a gold mine in my garage!
Fred -- They can ask it, but that doesn't mean they'll get it.
I'm not at home right now so I can't check mine but, I believe I have that same wrench.
It will fit the exhaust pack nut on a T however, when I asked the folks on this forum as to the application for my wrench, I was told that it's actually for a Model A.
It was originally made to install or remove the nut that holds the rear brake drum on the axle.
Compared to the wrench made for a T exhaust nut, it's a monster!
"You can't cheat an honest man. Never give a sucker an even break or wisen up a chump". To answer your question Fred, it's possible. Not likely but.... Just like your garage full of wrenches!
Fellows,Some of the rarer Z-tools bring much more than that. Ron is a Ford tool collector as am I. He is selling off some of his extras.
Water pump packing nut wrench???
No, that fixture is on the end of the Ford adjustable wrench - it does the W.P. pak nut & the rear axle fill plug.
What's a water pump?
Come on Seth, Don't start that sh*t.
HAHAHAHA Richard, just thought I'd stir the pot a little. =)
I believe that the rear axle fill plug, the spark plug, the low band adjustment lock nut and oil pan drain plug are all 15/16" The ad says 1 11/16th. with the high Z number Mike Spaziano might be correct it may be an A tool.
Someone else used "Z" No's. Because that's a water pump wrench
You misunderstood my answer to Nicholas, Dave. And I agree, the high Z number is a Model A service wrench.
The standard issue Ford adjustable wrench's tail end was modified for the newly designed (pipe plug) rear axle fill plug - 3/8" square drive. That wrench carried over to the Model A (although the "Ford" script was placed in a different spot) to tighten the W.P. nut and fit the 3/8" square drive of the rear axle fill & drain plugs.
I should add that the modified rear axle fill plug was for the "Improved" Model - '26-'27.
I have some of the adjustable wrenches with the square on the end for the 26/27 drain plugs. I have tried to sell some of them at different times but never had any success. I understand that they were also for Model As.
I'm sure glad you got stopped before you ran over those two beautiful girls.
I took that picture on Trail Ridge, over 2 miles above sea level. The amusing thing to me is, I like to drive up the Ridge about every other week or so. When I stop at one of the overlooks people stop taking pictures of all the scenery and take pictures of the Ts. People are always real courteous and ask if they can take the pictures. They especially like to pose the children with the Ts. I often let them get in the front seat behind the steering wheel and let the folks take their pictures.
A water pump is that thing on the front of a Model A head to which the fan is connected. Sometimes the shaft wears out causing the fan to go into the radiator. It is also famous for leaking and losing the coolant. Fortunately, the Model T doesn't have one nor need one.
We think it's for early Model A that had the nuts on the drive shaft to set pinion preload instead of on the pinion itself. The first Model A's had a very different setup for the pinion nuts on the assembly then the later ones.
