Nope. Think even bigger yet! It's gonna be a head smacker when the answer is revealed! None of you Ford Guys got any idea? You gonna let a Chevy Guy steal your thunder?

What part wasn't on a 41 Ford that was on a 46, that is what is stumping me.

Dinger How in God's name did you come up with such a lame guess as a " 6 cylinder" as a answer? We're talking about Ford Motors here. Maker of millions of cars . What about that famous Model T with it's 6 cyl oh wait a minute it had a four. How about that mind blowing Model B with it's 6 oh yeah it was a v8. You know what? Your the winner! Ford built no cars between 1907 to 1941 with a six cylinder engine. Henry didn't like them.
Go for it Dinger!

LOLOL, dear God, never thought of that! Yep, worked on a 46 Ford truck that had a six in it once. Funny stuff, thanks Mike!

Henry had problems with transmissions in 1906. His six was overpowering the transmissions and causing failures so he abandoned the six for forty plus years!

BB, I am going t pass this on to you, I've got to leave for work and wouldn't be able to come up ith a good question til tomorrow.

I think Henry got hammered in sales with his stubborness sometimes. If he would have built an OHV 6 earlier he may have put a few of the companies out of business. He kept the flathead through 54? I believe. A good Chev six was a desirable set up in those days.

Is that a lug wrench? I can tell it has four different "sockets" on the end, and turns like an old brace-and-bit drill...

Well that didn't take long. It is a "lug wrench although it doesn't work like a brace. A true brace has a ratcheting action. This tool works like a speed socket wrench. You go round and round with this tool.
Good job! Go for it!

OK, here's another mystery tool question.

What is this single-purpose tool used for?
