I sent a copy of the photo to our friend Doy Maston who learned to drive on Model Ts and has had and still has several of them. Here is what he said.

" Hard to guess the exact dimensions of the tool--most Model T tools had a 5Z----- number somewhere on the tool. My best guess --- that it's a puller used to pull off the the gear on a Model T generator."

The number on the took is 5Z322 and something that looks like a horizontal diamond. Overall width is 2 /14 inches, max gear widths is 1 1/2 inch

gap on the puller is 3/4 inch.

So I think you guy's are on the right track.

I figured it was a puller part of a flaring tool.

Jay,

I sent the correct number to Doy and here is the information he sent back.

"I posted on Model T Int. Forum asking for identiy of 5Z323 tool. Got answer on Forum in three minutes from Jack Daron of Indiana, the tool is to remove the head on a Bendix starter drive. I could only guess---since picture has no other object to determine size of jaw on the puller. But if you have a 5Z323 puller, you can overhaul a Bendix starter drive!"

Looks like 1937hd45 nailed it. smile.gif
