Delco Light Plant Wrenches
« on: April 14, 2013, 10:41:34 AM »
I have seen the usual five Delco Light Plant Wrenches.
(I am omitting any mention of small ignition or magneto style wrenches for this post.)

No. 28248 and No. 28282, both marked "DELCO LIGHT PLANT"

Also No. 90257, 90258, and 95095, all not marked Delco but understood to be.

All five have some usage marked on both sides such as: "Connecting Rod", or "Spark Plug", or whatever.

I have recently seen another wrench No. 96080, though the numbering is not crystal clear.  Could be 95080 or something else.
It certainly looks like it belongs with the others.
A closed hex opening at each end.
Usage is "BASE PLATE SCREWS" and "MOTOR MOUNTING SCREWS".

Sorry, no picture capability at the moment.

ANYONE EVER SEEN OR HEARD OF THIS WRENCH?

Is this a sixth Delco Light Plant Wrench?

A few years ago i had a Delco little Joe light plant ( generator). Delco is short for Detroit Light Company. I have since sold it, but may still have some pictures of it.

The MVWC Newsletter is still a hard copy only critter -- photocopied from a "master."  The club's whole web presence needs major work. -- Stan Schulz, Newsletter Editor
