This whatzit tool may look silly but I use it almost every day with my Ts. A friend of mine made a couple of them one for his T and he gave me one. I had an original metal one but lost it somehow. This one is made of wood but works well. I would think that someone could make and sell them.
I will try the above photo again.
One more time:
A handle for turning petcocks?
Yes they were made of metal...Place in the palm of your hand when you get in a fight over a parking spot.
This one should be easy...
U-joint installation tool?
Tooth extractor for Terantasaurus Rex? I'm sure I spelled it wrong!
Thats right, I was hoping someone would guess what it was. I only use it on the Radiators. I have some long metal ones for the OIL PAN PETCOCKS. I used to have a real nice metal one about 8 inches long that I used for the radiators but lost it long ago.
This whatzit tool comes in the list of worthless tools. I just keep it to show walk ins. It must have been a fairly common tool in the T era because I see a lot of them at swap meets. Or maybe the reason there are so many at swap meets is they are worthless and no one wants them. They come in two sizes on the sockets, 9/16" and 1/2"
The one in the picture is the 9/16". There seems to be more of the 9/16" survive than the 1/2".
Block to pan bolt/nut tool.
Part with the speed wrench tightens up the nut under the pan, part with the upsidedown "J" shape holds the bolt on top of the block.
I believe these were meant to be used when the work was being done while the engine was still in the vehicle with the splash pans removed.
Your Right!!!!! Do you know what the same wrench is with the two 1/2" sockets. They seem to be a lot rarer, I hardly ever see one.
This Whatzit is a 9/16" Z wrench used for a very specific function. You can use a lot of force with this wrench. One draw back is the open end is so thick that it can not always fit the job. I have a couple of Stevens that does the same specific job and fits much better, so I use them much more often.
Is that the tool for removing the flywheel bolts?
Im not sure of the following "Stevens" tools use. I think I know, so lets see if Im right.
I forgot the size of it. The main casting is 7-1/2 inches long.....
Unfortunately, I have no idea where that other size tool would be used.
Only a guess but it may be for another make of vehicle altogether.
Really enjoying the "Whatzit?" threads.
Dave's is a piston pin lock bolt tool.Donnie has a Stevens drive shaft sleeve puller. There is another version by Stevens too. Some one posted a picture of it awhile back.
Jack: Thanks, I thought it was a drive shaft sleeve puller also ....
The one man whatzit tool with the 1/2" sockets is for the bolts that hold the rear axle HOUSING together, according to some era catalogs. It seems to me it would be real awkward.
Dave, I use my pan bolt speed wrench a lot on initial run up of the bolts, then go back and tighten when everything is aligned. It is a time saver. KGB
If you want to save real time use your air ratchet. I seldom use any kind of hand ratchet. Hand ratchets are just too slow for most jobs.
If you have two or three motors to put together or a motor, and a couple of Ruckstells think how much time you save with an air ratchet.
