  • Ford Wrench
  • A guy from the Red Square Wheel Horse forum sent me this. It was in with a bunch of tools, rusty and dirty, etc. He cleaned it up and since he knew I had some Ford tractors, he sent it to me.

  • This will clarify the Ford Tractor tool info. The adjustable wrench, part number B-17021 had a 3/8" square tang on the end, used from '31 til '40. It was used in the early 9N Tractor toolkits til April, 1940, then obsoleted and replaced with the 01A-17021-A Monkey Wrench, shorter and no tang. The Adjustable Wrench was obsoleted in all commercial and passenger vehicle toolkits beginning in 1946, but the tool was still an optional accessory available at cost from a dealer. The 9N-17004 Tool Kit was released in 1940 and contained: B-17005-A Tool Bag; 01A-17015 Open End; 01A-17016 Open End; B-17025-A Pliers; and B-17020 Screwdriver, and used up thru 8N Production. The 2N-17003 Shipping Parts Kit, issued with each new tractor, contained the 9N-17014 Plow Wrench and the 01A-17017-B Spark Plug/Head Bolt Wrench and these two tools would remain as the only tools with a new tractor up thru the Hundred Series Models. The Spark Plug Socket & Handle Wrench 2C-17017 was added after the NAA Model.

  • Yes, it has a square tang on the end, and the wrench is about 9 1/2 inches long.

  • That's an adjustable wrench that was found in owner tool kits for Ford cars. The square tang is used to remove the differential drain plug. The difference between it and the one that was found in N tractor kits is that the tractor version does not have the square tang on the end of the handle.

  • I can't tell you positively, but Ford often marked their tools used in production. They could have been used in an upholstery department. The scissors may have been stolen or thrown away. Ford even had eating utensils in their employee cafeterias marked "Ford".
    Looking at my son's 1942 Ford GPW (Jeep) all of the bolts had a script F on the head.

  • Re: Ford Sissors
  • Thank you, Sir, for your input. During WW II, there was a family member that built army vehicles at Ford plant, so maybe.....

  • Re: Ford Sissors
  • Please understand, I was not being accusatory. The volume of tools etc. was such that stuff easily got misplaced or accidently thrown away. Enjoy your treasure.
