Just guessing huh? Well your right. This tool was used to install universal joints in inclosed drive shafts or torque tubes. First one I ever saw.

It's yours.

In 1935 they didn't have Constant Velocity Joints. A constant velocity joint was part of a spaceship in a Tom Swift book.

My truck was originally green and so many of the parts I bought over the years were green I figured that had to be it.

Ok, what car is this and what is this panel for on the top of the fender at the rear of the hood?

Boy I made a lot of money on these babies!! I'll let it go for a while and let someone else answer it. One interesting thing about them air conditioning wise was the impossible to find refrigerant leak! Usually I would see the car after it had been to half a dozen places with out correct results in repairing the A/C.
The repair actually was difficult and costly. I loved it because I had a trick way to remove the offending components and could always beat the flat rate. The trick to the diagnosis was simple. You had to leave the car overnight!' They had a nasty habit of leaking at the evaporator and the only way to find it was to charge the empty system the night before. It took all night for enough gas to collect in quantities that could be detected. First thing in the morning I'd stick the sniffer in the duct and it would scream. You could not detect it the day before. I was always the hero! As I remember the job payed about 6 hrs. Gold!

I know it's a 'vette but I don't remember what's under the panel and I wouldn't say if I did, cause I don't have any antique or Chrysler tools....
