PWA wrenches with questions


I got seven PWA 2006  wrenches yesterday

all basically the same, but each bent a bit differently.

custom bent by mechanic?

any particular use for these?

any market for these?

PWA-2006 Wrench, Socket (4.5"L) 1/2 Male drive, 9/16 Cyl Base Nut, for Pratt & Whitney R1830, R2000 Twin Wasp engines

My guess would be that no. 1, 2, 3, and 6 from the top were modified and 4, 5 and 7 are how they all should look.

There are people that collect PWA stuff

Very nice!  I'm addition to being cylinder wrenches, some could be for the starter or generator.  It could have been that the adaptor was able to have another wrench  inserted for leverage.  These very well may have come from an on board kit, and they were short to save space and weight.


maybe an extension on end for leverage
