I've been at the Model T game seriously for only eight years, so I'm still learning. The T-1917 wrench for adjusting transmission bands is plentiful and cheap, and it's what I've always used.
But this spring at Chickasha I discovered the much less common 3Z-2034 (also T-2342, 5Z-324, and 16Z-1411), which does the same job. It's a ratchet. Simply slip it over the adjusting nut and pull to tighten, or flip it over and pull the other way to loosen. Very handy.
I've been doing searches for model t tools and your posts always seem to come up with great pictures.
Ever think about adding a T tool section to your website?
Not volunteering, just an idea.
Wish there was a resource to help identify the correct tools and where you can see the variations over the years. The parts books don't show the same details as modern pictures.
Maybe I'll get around to a tool page eventually. Too many other fish to fry now.
Bought one of those ratchet tools a while back from Dave Huson, very handy tool. I have a string on the end of mine "in case"....
I have the ratchet tool but would love to find the tool that holds the nut, I saw one but it was not for sale but it looks like it would work nicely.
The vendors carry the nut-holding tool:
Thank you There is so much these days I guess I will have to read them like a book.
The M-diamond trademark was used by Frank Mossberg on the tools that he manufactured, I think starting about 1907.
Wait until you get the deluxe version for the large low speed nut. I used this one this morning.
Chris,wrench also fits oil pan drain and differential plug.
Not all oil pan drains.
I'm just playing with resizing photos.
I also have a 4-dip pan that has a plummers plug about 2 inches diameter in it.It is for you race guys who want faster oil changes....
