Four Rod Wrench: $29.00, used when adjusting the fourth rod when you have a three dip pan. A very handy tool when your need to remove some shims from the fourth rod on a long tour. Please include $9.15 shipping.

I don't think that is a rod wrench, looks like the one you need for removing a flywheel.

Mark: there is no manufacture name on this tool. I would like to share pictures of a few flywheel wrenches that I have. The DURO looks to be the same wrench and has the 11/16" permanent socket.
The one I use most for removing or installing flywheels is Black hawk. Note the socket has a thin spot to get in between the bolt and the bearing.

The next flywheel wrench I see the most is the 5-Z-210.

I have a Duro and the Ford 5Z in my box but use a thin Snap-On socket myself, I was mot looking for a lesson in aftermarket tools...

The point I was trying to make is that the wrench you pictured is not the typical fourth rod wrench which brings your hand down out of the pan so you are not dragging your knuckles across the crank shaft or another rod cap while you are working.

A lot of these companies made tools for other makers and many look similar to the ones for Ford cars - Star Car for example used off the shelf tools from Walden-Worcester as factory shop tools equivalent to Ford 3Z and 5Z tools and I had a mid 20's Studebaker years ago where I swear the factory wheel puller in the parts catalog was an early Snap-On with multiple threaded inserts for different hubcap threads. If you look at the pictures in the Ford Service Manuals a lot of the tools for rear end rebuilding are Stevens tools.

If anyone else is interested, there is a website that gives a lot of information on early tool companies here: http://alloy-artifacts.org/ if this does not work search for Alloy Artifacts and you will find it.

I don't mean any disrespect, just trying to spread knowledge - at least I'm bumping this up for you...

Thank you both.

Mark: The socket is 5/8' You need a 11/16" socket for the fly wheel bolts. So you could not use the wrench in the first picture.
