Both are Fordson script. The heavier one is the normal one you see. I ran into the thinner one and its the only one I've ever seen. Does anyone have any information on it?

Are those for the gas gage face on a Model A?

Fordson. Hub Cap, Transmission oil cap and Water fill cap for the water bath air cleaner wrench.

Dan is correct, that is what they were both used for

Dan, my experience is just the opposite. I have never seen one like the top one, only those like the bottom one. Perhaps it is a Canadian thing.

I believe the top one is the first production, generally American built.
The bottom one is when manufacturing went to Cork and Dagenham.
I think that wrench was used through the E27N series as well.

Thanks Allan and Kevin, I think you are right.

Here is the other part of that wrench that a lot of folks do not know what is. The socket hole on the end of the pry bar allows the hub cap wrench or the lug bolt wrench to be inserted in it making a longer pry bar for prying the wheel lugs loose. At least that is what was explained to me years ago. Was I told the right thing or have I been wrong all these years .... ???

The fordson tractors had a wedge style lock to hold the rear wheels to the axle. The hook was to pull the wedge.
