old wrench

1 Attachment(s)
My grand father gave me this old wrench he found in some junk when I was about ten years old in Okla. He said it was a model a ford wrench. I don't know if he really thought it was or if he just wanted me to think it was important. It has no markings on it ,3/4 and 11/16 sizes . Well I carried this thing around 46 years across country just because he gave it to me. The other day I had the pan down on my coupe to check the thrust bearing .I was getting ready to go tool shopping because I didn't have anything that would fit through that hole to take the rear main nuts off. Then I remembered this old wrench and it worked great. I'm pretty sure grandpa would be happy I finally got to use it on a model a. Thanks to all who have shared their knowledge on this forum , I have really enjoyed learning about these cars.

"I carried this thing around 46 years across country just because he gave it to me"

I can't think of a better reason!

Re: old wrench

You guys are lucky to have had Grandfathers to know, I never had any, my mother was an orphan and my dad's father passed away long before I was born. Just had the Grandmother on my dad's side and she was a snarly woman.
When my wife's and my parents were alive I made sure our children got to know and interact w/their grandparents.

Great story Roy! Thanks for sharing.
Katy; sorry that you never got to know your Grandparents. You now know the importance of family. Looks like you turned fine! :). Jeff
