Steering wheel puller.
Handle from an arbor press?
Hex Headed Revolver?...
Thanks guys, once it was pointed out it is obvious as to what it is. HRP
It made me curious about who the heck KR Wilson was. This site looks like an interesting way to spend a 100 degree afternoon! http://krwilsontools.com/
Interesting site, it's a shame he doesn't tell us what happened to the company after 1948.
K R Wilson Tools are highly sought after by early ford mechanics. They made a lot of specialty tools for Model A Fords and such. Many of their tools bring some very good money.
This is another item that was found when helping to clean out a estate. HRP
Makes me think impact screwdriver
Being Italian the first thing is a handheld spaghetti maker
the second one is a ravioli sticher
"BACK OFF ONE TURN" sounds like good advice to me.
HRP looks like an automatic trans band adjustment tool
Dadgum we've got some smart people on the HAMB
@arkiehotrods I'll take that as a compliment. Thanks. Yes it's true lots of knowledge on here.
What's the ball chain and metal piece used for? HRP
HRP The one you have is for old cast iron Ford Cruise o Matic. The bar is put under the adjustment screw for the band as a spacer. The chain is so you don`t lose the bar.The tool is set to freewheel at the correct torque .Then back off one turn .Tighten the lock nut on the adjustment screw and your done.
Thank you both, I appreciate the replies. HRP
Like an M2 headspace and timing gauge.
Danny, I see you are staying busy. Thats some very interesting auto archeology there.
Yes sir and thanks to some members with a lot more knowledge than me and willing to share their expertise we are able to describe just what the items are used for. HRP
Were there any hydra-matic tools by any chance?
We are still digging through all the crates & boxes, the estate has 3 large quonset huts, and we are just getting started in the first one, this is where we found these two items. HRP
I'll post some pics of tools so you know them when you see them.
These are Hydra-Matic tools. If you find any of these I'd certainly be interested in buying them.
...plenty of folks around here have no idea who Ma Duece is.....or what she is capable of.
You had to bring it up. So here is what it is used on.
Headspace and timing gauge are used to do what they are named after. First you set the headspace between the breech and the bolt by screwing the barrel in or out until the gauge fits in the GO end and the NO GO end will not fit. Then you insert the GO end to set the timing with a wheel and the rear cover removed so it will fire at 600 rounds per minute when the bolt is completely closed. Failure to properly set the headspace and timing can result in a, worst case scenario case rupture causing severe damage to the gun and user. Best case it will not fire.
And if you have a bigger problem.
M134. 18,000 Rounds per minute
When the $h1t gets real.
And when all else fails.
Here are both of the adjustment tools for the Cruise-O... the “bar” as you call it has measurements on it
Separate names with a comma.
