I was given this wrench,and I don't know if it is areal CASE wrench or a blacksmith creation, it has 982AB cast in the cast end, it fits the front wheel hub cap and the rear axle nut on my CC, the hooked end seems to fit the adjusting lugs for the rear axle bearings, it is kind of crudely built, it stands about four feet tall, and must weigh 20 lbs or more. Any input will be appreciated.
Thanks Mike

I just looked through every page of my P T Rathbone wrench book (513 pages) & nothing in there. I would suspect someone (a blacksmith) maybe made the wrench for a special application & you just found a use for it. Gerald

I've looked at what information I have, my CC owners manual, and it talks about a special wrench for the axle nut with a similar part number, but no picture, and a drawing of the service tool kit from a repair parts catalog that lists a spanner and an axle nut wrench, the drawing of the spanner is similar, but no picture of the wrench or part numbers for either. My guess is they are two separate CASE wrenches that were permanantly joined together to make them easier to use. I have taken an axle nut off of my CC once and it was VERY securely tightened, a good solid wrench is a must.
Thanks for the replies,

The rear axle nut wrench you refer to is an open end wrench that must be three feet long. It is very heavy, and has a notch to keep it from slipping off the nut. I have the wrench with my service tool set.

Does it look like the front hub cap wrench has been added to the long spanner wrench? The long spanner wrench is part of the L/C service tool set. I have the complete set. I have never seen or heard of the front hub cap wrench as part of the spanner wrench. Part numbers for all the wrenches that are in the service tool set are in the service manuals for either tractor.

It is not shown nor is that # listed in P T Rathbones wrench book under J I Case, J I Case Threshing Machine Co, nor J I Case Plow works. Give me a day or so & I'll look through the book page by page & see if it is listed or shown under another manufacturer. Gerald
