Hi and thanks for reading. I had a box of some old Model T parts and this is one I am having trouble identifying. It has STEVENS NY on it. Looks like the screw end was cut off of something as the bottom is slanted. The other nut was on it when I found it.
Thanks and have a good day.
Used when lifting the engine via the spark plug hole.
Great find. It's screwed into the #3 spark plug hole to pull the engine. Best not to use it on aluminum heads. The nut that was screwed on it is an adaptor to use on model A's.
I believe it could also be used as a "hand-hold" when removing the head.
Adv for that Stevens tool
The wire wraps on those two end head bolts are for keeping them in place as you lower the head when placing in the head when the engine is in the car. Those bolts can't be placed after the head in on, as they infer with the firewall.
For me, a strong rubber band does the same trick to hold the bolts up, but still in place in the cylinder block.
opps, meant "still in place in the cylinder head."
I didn't know they used two! I've been using one in #3!
"Strength in Numbers" !
If two is good, three is better
