 a valve lifter opens when the handles are squeezed.

 a valve compressor will close when the handles are squeezed.

 I believe ?

That valve spring compressor could be used for many different flathead / side valve engines. It will not work on Ford Flathead V8's tho. I have used that type of tool many times working on older model forklifts using Chrysler 251 and 264 CI six cylinder engines.

Forgot to mention that I can't confirm or deny that this is made by Indestro

Thanks, Bill, more great information.

So, have we agreed it is for a Model A?

Valve spring compressor, yes - although I've seen them called "lifters," too - for a flathead/side valve engine.

No question mark needed, Mark.  That was quick.

So, it is antique.  I haven't found or matched the exact number, but found a listing for Model T/A by Endestro.
I think they mean Indestro which began in the late 20's which would make it a tool for a Model A?
Now, to see if I can find the model number.

Thanks so much.  Appreciate any additional info.
