    I could use some help identifying some old wrenches i got years ago from my grandfather. One says "Ford" and the others have words forged into them? Maybe they originally came with a car.
    Thanks.

    I have the same Ford wrench in the first picture, pretty light duty. I think it's for adjusting model A lifters, or "tappets". Also should fit steering box adjustment locknut

    The "Ford" script open end wrench is a Model T item, they beefed them up for the Model A Ford tool kits.

    The wrenchs that have a Ford script on them,are very common. Ford made 13 million Model T's I think,and 4 million Model A's. Every one of those came with a tool kit. The tool kit always got saved when the car was junked. My dad had a lot of them,and so did my father inlaw. I like the wrenchs that state what item it fits ,never seen that before. Wrenchs with brand names on them other than Ford sell quickly.
