  • Tools-Lack of Part Numbers

    It appears before and after the Model A, Ford placed part numbers on tools. Does any one know the company's reasoning for lack of numbers during this time?

    Was this the Model A tools that had no part numbers? And did they still have the Ford script?

      Very few original US Model A era tools had part numbers applied.

      Also, most Model A tools had markings indicating the tool manufacturer, but not the Ford script.
      However, many pliers were marked Ford script, in a variety of sizes and locations.
      IMO 98% of Ford script tools are either Model T, or later V8.

      Also, most Model T tools did not have applied part numbers either.

      The bottom of tire air pump cast bases is one part that usually carries a T or A part number.

      By the time of the early V8s, Ford began applying part numbers to tools, especially spark plug wrenches, because there were more and more different varieties of things for dealer stockmen to keep track of and be able to distinguish with certainty.

      Tools and their part numbers are identified and illustrated in the back of the Ford Parts Price Lists, as well as the RG&JS.
