What does the lug wrench for the 26-27 Ford Model T wire wheels look like? Does it have the "Ford" logo? Is it the same as a Model A lug wrench?

I bought an extra ratchet, extension, and small socket set for my T tool bag. I'd be really interested to see what the lug wrench (if there is one?) looks like cause I prefer to use the cooler original tools when I can.

Jack Daron told me the correct tool for Improved Ford wire wheels lug nuts is T-2839.

Jack also said there are other 5-Z- wrenches that are similar in shape with the same nut size that are commonly called the lug nut wrench, but they are not the one Ford intended to be used on Model T wire wheel lug nuts.

...And of course Jack is right. I should have checked the number before posting. I am glad Ron posted and corrected me!

I think the 5Z-160 is same size,but it was made for tightening body bolts. If you find one with 5Z-2039R ,it is a reissue with heavier side walls. Seems some of them had a tendency to crack. I have both versions in my collection.The Ford script can be length wise or crosswise also. I keep finding differences in a lot of tools.

I made a mistake,The numbers should be T-2039 and T-2039R. The tool Paul shows is a Model A tool.

Actually, there are two different "T-shaped" lug wrenches for the 1926-27 wire wheels. If you look in Bruce's big black book on page 594, part #2891, you will see that originally in 1926, 5-Z-161 was to be used. Later, in 1927, factory #2839 must have been designed, which has a shorter shaft. Both wrenches have a 10 inch crossbar. The first is marked "Ford 5-Z-161" and has a shaft 11 inches long. The second one is marked "Ford T-2839", or "Ford T-2839-R". This has a shaft 8-1/2 inches long. See the difference in the photos. I keep the shorter wrench under the back seat in my touring.
