While digging through the new parts truck, I found this and another shot partially extended. Also found this and another shot of it. The small silver thing was found with a bunch of spark plugs but has nothing to put any torque on it. The first item has a 1 1/2 inch socket end on it.

Thats a crank for removing lug nuts on a big bolt. You slip a handle through the hole on the end and the gears give you leverage.

I picked up a huge set of these at a garage sale a few years back.

The nut on stud piloted wheels, more commonly called Budds, is 1 1/2"

Small silver thing is a spark plug socket/wrench. My Dad had one for his Stovebolt.

That was my thoughts also but there is nothing to turn it with other than your hand. No hole for a rod or screwdriver and there are no tool marks from a wrench on the body of it.

Any Idea what the proper name for the tool is? That looks too cool not to have one in my arsenal.

It doesn't fit any lugnut on this truck, that's why I'm kinda puzzled what it was for.

I really dont know what you'd call it. Probably some sort of Budd wrench. I thought it was too cool when I saw it and passed on $10 for the one I picked up along with a dozen other big bolt lug wrenches.

That wrench looks like a simple old time torque multiplier. We used more modern versions but with the same affect. If you want to see a modern version go to google images and put in torque multiplier.

Just a thought Bruce. I really don't know but it MIGHT be intended to have a wrench used on it. It looks like it would slip over the spark plug and extend up far enough that you would be able to put a standard wrench on it to turn it. Maybe????? ohwell
