Default oil sender removal tool

Well, I was trying to help a fellow barner by sending him a sketch of a simple homemade tool to remove the oil sender. I had bookmarked it but when I went to retrieve it I found out it was from the old Fordbarn and not available. It was submitted by one of the regulars I believe. U shaped with a 3/8 square hole at the top and open end at the bottom to fit the square shank on the sender. I can probably draw a sketch if you folks can not come up with it. Thanks.
John

John, Bill Wzorek made them and sold them on the old Fordbarn. Proceeds went to Shelly. They were a beautifully built tool. I am sure he can help with info or drawing.

Here are some pics of the one Bill W. makes or did make. Not sure he is still doing these. He painted them whatever Ford engine color you wanted.....

Here is the one from from Lawson Cox. Looks like you take a long open end-box end wrench , heat it up and bend it 90 degrees and weld a nut on top of the box end for a socket.

I believe that I have just purchased an old Snap-on purpose made tool for this! Won't be 100% sure til the mail man comes...
I have wasted a lot of time and a quart or so of blood wrestling with those senders over the years. Very similar to the home-brew 19Fordy posted, but shorter, looks like it'll be a close fit over top of sender from the pictures.

Gentlemen: The oil sender removal tools by Lawson Cox and Bill Wzorek are both fantastic solutions to one of the worst flathead jobs I can think of. If either have additional copies for sale please contact me at dwj39@yahoo.com

I never would have thought such a frustrating job would generate so much comment and great ideas. You guys are all fantastic and sent some good pictures. I wonder how you reinstall a sender without getting crossed threads in such a wicked tight area ? Car is in my little "station" at the moment but as soon as I replace the gas line I'll head to the warm basement where all the tools are as this may take time. Eventually our great NH weather will come to an end and for some reason I enjoy comfort. Any time the temp gets below 75 I have to start drinking anti freeze and carry WD40 to stay loosened up. Deeply appreciate everyones help and suggestions, Bob
