Anyone able to tell me about a wrench with number 41-w-1555. What's it for?
Regards

Phil,
Here is what it looks like. Looks like an ignition wrench with a feeler gauge attached on one end but I'm not entirely sure.

Thanks Phil,
Wonder if it's part of a set, what ignition is it for and is 41 the year of manufacture

The 41 is not the date it was manufactured. It is part of the FSN (Federal Stock Number). I don't know what set it was part of but I'll check my '42 SNL N-19 and see if it's in there. Did you happen to find one?

Looks like a tool that I have seen for adjusting the air Gap on Voltage Regulators.
