I always find something worth bringing home from the Sunflower Swap Meet. Today's haul included four valve stem covers and nuts ($15), three coil boxes ($25) for parts, a 2513 diff case ($1), and this:
The guy who sold me the valve stem covers had a bunch of tools that included three of these. He wanted $30 each. I told him I'd have to meditate on that. About twenty feet away was another fellow with a bunch of tools. He sold me this one for $3. I didn't quite rip my pocket off, but I didn't waste any time getting the money out.
thats the thrill of it, we all get lucky once in a while !!
WOW! Good buy on the exhaust pack nut wrench Steve! I think what that first guy was asking is about what the vendors are getting for the repop ones they sell, which are actually pretty crude!
Good SCORE Steve.
Steve, you would be fun to go to these places with. Nice finds.
How close is this to the 5 Z 204 wrench?
The deals are out there. You have to be in the right place at the right time.
You hit it right on that wrench Steve.
Guy's: you hope that if Steve fell into that bucket of S**T that he would come out smelling like a rose and not loose his tape measure. Of course he might need the tape measure to see how deep the bucket is!
I wish Steve was my neighbor, in the hope that his aura might rub off on me.
Erich, same wrench, different number.
actually, not the same wrench. the 204 is round in the middle, not pointed in the middle for that extra grip!!
I came home from the Sunflower Swap Meet with a 1914 10-brad coil. I tested it with my Fun Projects "Coil Beeper" and it is indeed good.
Clayton,there are at least two versions of the 5Z-204,One is hex and one rounded.
A few of my finds, all but two items, a $1.00 wrench and a coil box lid which I still can't find, not in the car or at the house and shop where I unloaded.
one of my dollar items was this tire tool, it's stamped Dunlop and on the back side made in England. My guess is motorcycle or bicycle. For a buck it's now in my tool collection.
My first item was the horn, $20.00 and expect for tools I didn't pay more than that for any of the T parts I got. The Buller Coupler hitch is NOS but missing the part that locks it together and because I have a worn out one it will donate the spring and the lock.
The 5 shocks (4+one extra) $10.00, the spindles look nos and are 26/7 $20.00, the two sets of Large thread re-threaders both fine and course $10.00 for the pair.
The Stevens generator gear puller was a nice find !
Want to double your money on those shocks?
Thanks Guys, but they too were on my list. That is if I found some. My biggest problem was for the number of venders the number selling model T parts is around 100 to 1. This was the first time in many years I did not spend all the money I took. I did luck out and after the swap meet meet up with a fellow selling the last of his friends machine shop tools( he passed 2years ago), got a Sunnen Pin hone and rod straightening tools plus a bead roller for cheep. After I get it all cleaned up I'll post pics. I'm thinking I'll pass on the trans bushing sizes but stay simple with 1/2", 3/4", and piston pin size.
