Either a clean out for a tuba or a nut splitter?

I'm thinking it's to press in a bushing or shaft.

I don't think it's strong enough for that. I was thinking something like hinge bushings.

No to all of your answers. Here's a hint. It fits 9/16th bolts and you didn't need it on a "Deuce"..

Because the Deuce had mechanical brakes, it's to push in the pistons on a wheel cylinder.

A Deuce had a closed drive line so it's for installing U joints.

I had a tool something like that , It wasn't threaded it had a spring to hold it on the bolt head and it would reach behind a blind corner so you could crank it and screw on the nut! But if those are threads I'm way off base Mine was designed for one particular use and no other! Putting 2 frame bolts on one car in one spot!LOL! It was my dads tool from Chryslers.

Then why did you say it wasn't needed on a Deuce!

My next one was going to be a hole filler for the frame because the Duece doesn't have running board aprons.

It's something to do with OHV? Valve spring compressor?

Pure meanness. Actually it was a hint. Nothing to do with valves but you finally are looking in the right direction.
