Classic Auto and Motorcycle Tools / Odd Mossberg Model T con rod ratchet
« Last post by moparthug on June 23, 2024, 01:39:43 PM »
Every Mossberg Ford Model T con rod ratchet tool I see online is a number 624 with a curled handle. There's a few on eBay in the $20 to 70 range, and Alloy Artifacts lists them clearly. However... I have a 024 with a straight handle, and it's not a curled handle just straightened out, it was made this way. I can't find any mention of this one. All I can think of is that the curled handle model came in a wood boxed set with sockets and other tools and needed to be compact. Perhaps this long handle ratchet is a "dealer mechanic" stand alone tool? Nowhere does it say Ford on it (that would be too easy). Any ideas?

I know they can't list every tool on their site, but it always makes me happy when I have a tool not listed on AA.  :smiley:

Yes that's it! The only difference I can see is yours may be a couple years newer with hollow rivets and mine are solid. Do you know if this was a stand alone tool or part of a set with sockets?

If it is an 87, it should be mercury filled unless somebody emptied it. If you shake it you should be able to feel the mercury moving inside. I think the hex top ones were later production, so they didn't roll when you set them down.

Hello , Yadda . The drive plugs in the Hinsdale box are a great find! Are they marked?

Wow!  Good eye! I didn't realize it was a Starrett until I did a little cleaning.  It is a Starrett  No. 87. It isn't solid.

Is that a Starrett Plumb Bob? Filled or solid steel?
