Misread the topic. Thought it said: Wenches. Disappointed.

I do not know. But I have been told a few times that it is an early Ford V8 wrench. That the tapered bottom for the spark plug was that way because of the smaller taper in some models of the V8 heads that the plugs sat in. That is what a few people that knew more than I about vintage tools have said.

Just zoomed in on the photo. One seems to have a part no prefix 40-, that is a 1934 Model 40 part. The other looks to be prefix 81A, which is 1938 passenger car. Tomorrow I can check my parts books.

Learned something on this thread about identifying a V8 Ford wrench. I have one in my buckets of this and that somewhere. So did a tool wrap come with the V8 Fords? This got me wondering how long a basic tool wrap kit come with a new Ford.
Thanks!

The Model T version of that wrench is #2335. Sometimes it has the number on it.

This is it for 1913-1920.

This is 1921-1927.

I've been advised that the wrecks that vinyl show were for the Ford fathead V8

17017 is the part # for Wrench (spark plug and cylinder head nut). My English book only shows B prefix for 4cyl, 40 prefix for V8 85 & 52 prefix for V8 60. I think lots of the tools were revised to 01A (not 81A) circa 1940 because I find lots of those. Anyway they're V8.
