Can anyone tell about the tool I found? It came with my 1916 Touring but since it wasn't Ford scripted I never thought much about it. I'm assuming it's a tire changing tool since it says "U-WANTA PIERCE TIRE TOOL" on it. I haven't been able to find anything on the web about it and was thinking about selling it.
"U-WANTA PIERCE TIRE TOOL" appears to be a tool used to pierce holes in tires, if you should want to do so. ;-} Jim
It is used to move the inner tube away from the Rattlesnake. We use them quite frequently where I live.
Looks like Clyde made some changes but didnít bother to apply for a new patent . . .
That is the Tire Plow.
Plant the end and the lever engages the tire edge, and rotate the wheel and the tools levers off the clincher tire casing.

Yep, you can throw away those tire irons. Then pray to the Model T Gods you don't have a punctured tube and the nail is no longer in the tire. And remember there's no air necessary in that new inner tube.
I want one!
I'll bet the paint on your rims doesn't look very good when done using it!
It looks like they would be hard on the wheel paint.
