At a local swap meet I found these.



The two valve lifting tools are Bull Pup model 24's. I really prefer these for model T work, as the jaws operate in parallel, so the springs stay straight, making installing pins easier. It is even more of an advantage when fitting modern caps and two piece collets which require the caps to be nicely on the flat. One is in better nick than my present user, so I will keep it and have two for my swap meet stuff.

The Stevens tool is their piece for aligning the U joint when sliding the motor in. Now I have 2 Stevens tools.

Hi Allan. Nice finds! I have been looking for a pair of those Stevens u joint tongs. Let me know if you want to do a deal!

Andrew.

This pair are keepers Andrew. However, it would not be too hard to modify some blacksmiths tongs I saw at the same meet. They really are quite crude. Except for the Stevens imprint, it would be easy to make a workable replica.

That's too bad. I'm about to drop a donk into a rolling chassis here and could have used them. Now that I know you have a "collection" of Stevens tools I'll let you know if I find any duplicates of what I have.

Andrew.

I'm hoping to find one of those Stevens U-joint tools at Hershey later this year. :-)

As far as I know, I have every u-joint tool made. I still like the Ford one the best.
