There is a story behind these two whatzits. Many years ago I went to an auction on the main street, down town Boulder, Colorado. It was an old machine shop started in 1913. The old shelves were still fill of a lot of stuff. I bought these two whatzits, some NH Carburetors, and Ruckstell parts.

The top photo tools appear to be transmission reamers - bottom photo ?

Steve Tomaso:

You are right. They are ADJUSTABLE REAMERS. The top reamer is for the brake drum and the lower reamer is for the low drum. Since these reamers are adjustable you can fit as you like. I bought an entire set of adjustable reamers at an auction one time and it has one reamer that fits the reverse.
I would like to say one more thing that will disturb some.

1. I seldom change the bushings in transmission drums. The manual says that up to five thousands clearance is OK and I almost never find that much or even near that much.

2. I trust the original bushings better than I do the new ones.

When I am doing transmissions for someone else, I show them how little clearance there is and give them the choice about new bushings.

I find this Whatzit very, very handy. In fact I use it so often that its starting to show some wear but I don't know where I would ever find another. This came in a set in a large box and just about every thing in it is very useful.

Totally agree on transmission bushings. New ones are not better than serviceable old ones. Especially if they are too tight!

This Whatzit will be a little different. It has two definite uses. One end is a socket with a square center which of coarse is for the main bearing bolts. I am looking for the other end. Its 9/16" and very slender on the end. Its is a Walden and Worchester wrench. Walden was one of the biggest manufacturer of T tools. I use the end with the 9/16" socket on every motor I work on. What is the use

3Z-744 is a pedal bending iron.The very last picture is a front wheel cone setting tool.

Ford pedal bending iron is the only one I have seen. One of the big Ford tool collector guys was asking me to part with it but said "no thanks".

I should have reversed the outer cone mandrel to be more accurate as to it's function.

Steve Tomaso:

Is the number one picture for removing spring perches???

I thought may be the number three would be for surfacing the flat end of the axle????

Second grouping - Yes Dave, # 1 for perch removal - # 3 is for facing new spindle body bushings. # 2 is the spindle body bushing remover and #4 is for removing spindle arm bushings.
