Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2015: Ford Tools identification
Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Joe Fedullo on Saturday, May 23, 2015 - 08:33 am:

I have a smattering of old Ford tools and am not sure what is what. I have 2 '31 As and a '14 T and would like to know what to put where...

This is an overview:

The three jacks all look like Model "T" jacks to me, but have different markings. Only one says "Ford" on the handle. Would any of them be correct for '14?

Starting from the right, I think the first three are model "T" wrenches, but I am not sure if any of them are the correct style for '14, the next one is a Model "A" wrench, I think the next one is V8 wrench as it has a tapered bottom. I have no idea what the one on the left is that has a hex and open end on the same end...

There are 2 different style pliers here. The first one on the left has "Ford" script, And the next one looks basically the same without the script. The next two on the right are a different style, and I am not sure they are Ford parts, but they do have screwdriver blades on one end:

I am pretty sure the adjustable wrench and tire iron here are "A" parts.

These I have no idea what is what, all are "Ford" script.

Any help identifying these is appreciated!

Thanks!

Hi Joe,

The Ford jack would be correct for your '14.

The spark plug wrench with the "closed" hex would be correct for the '14. The wrench with the hex at the spark plug end came in the Ton Truck tool kit. The larger hex was for the rear wheel lug nuts.

The Ford pliers would be correct for the '14.

The adjustable wrench has that square extension to fit the rear axle fill plug on the Improved Model T.

My two cents worth, perhaps overvalued. Bill

The only tools I'm aware of that have the Ford script in '14 is the band wrench, and maybe the spark plug/head bolt wrench.

Larry, are you saying one of the other jacks or pliers might be right for the 14, or are they all wrong?

Thanks!
Joe

Joe, the two on the left in the last photo are T1917 band adjusting wrenches.

Joe, with the last pictures, from left, late T band wrenches ; 1940's [ thin, Ford USA] wrenches ; 1932-40 wrenches[ thicker, Ford USA] & lastly is an earlier T band wrench.

Wayne,

Thanks for the info. Would either of the styles of band wrench I have be correct for my '14?

Thanks!
-Joe

It's difficult to tell from your photo, but the only band wrench for a '14 would be the one on the right.
