It holds the pedal shaft nut and washer and keeps them from falling into the transmission while you are trying to remove or start the nut.

I would have to agree with Royce, that tool works great.

Mark,

I had no idea someone was reproducing them. It is a great tool, sure prevents a lot of trouble. This one is well worn, from decades of use.

Oxygen acetylene torch. It gets lots of use during disassembly and I use it to weld with all the time.

The best tool for me is the one I don't have to use!

Royce,
I've not had a great deal of luck with that tool. Must be operator error.

Ratchet band adjustment tool is my favorite.

Of all the "simple" tools I have, my favorite and most used is My Waldren spark plug wrench. It is the best one I have ever found to remove the plugs with. It fits down into the spark plug area well and does not slip off. And the other end fits the timer clamp bolt as well as all the other bolts with a 5/8 head.

wrench 2

I see Donnie posted the Waldon. :-) HCCT, carburetor/timer clamp bolt wrench, original driving gear puller, front cover centering tool, hub puller, flywheel bolt wrench...:-) Guess I don't have just one!

I was gonna' post the Walden spark plug/head bolt wrench too. Obviously it was a good idea. :-)

Donnie - for years I used an old Champion wrench that was simply OK. Based on your endorsement above, I just bought one for a $1 on Ebay. If Walden were still in business, they'd owe you a commission.

I always buy that Walden spark plug wrench when I see them at swap meets, and give them to my Model T buddies. They work great!

There seems to be quite a few of the 3620 Waldren Spark Plug wrenches still out there. They must have been very popular back in the day. Ron, I hope the wrench purchase does not affect you budget too much. I think you will find every dollar spent (all one of them) will be worth it :-)

Mike Walker, you like them because of the name. :-)

Money, a super nice tool.

Actually it's any one I pick up at the right price at flea markets. Last big score was at the Columbus Flea Mkt here in N.J. There it sat among a load of wooden handled screw drivers. The Ford Model T tool kit screw driver. $2.00. The seller said "Yeah, people like those wooden handled drivers. Unmarked. No clue. Doesn't happen very often though.

I love flea markets. A few years ago I was digging through the dollar box and found a valve tool but like most, it was missing the hook that goes with it. I made one for it. Only paid $1 for it. I also scored a Babbitt scrapper for under $2 (it's a Stevens) at a different flea market.

Does that Walden 3620 also fit on the low band lock nut? It's the right size, just wonderin' if it will squeeze in that narrow opening.

I just bought a Walden 3620 on ebay. Didn't know about it until this post. This forum is great!

Ken -- Yes, it fits. I checked it this morning.
