Default Favorite Early V/8 Tool & Why?

My Favorite Early Ford V/8 Tool is Herbrand #2360 Ford Motor Jack. It not only raises the Motor & holds it in position but provides the means of turning the motor over while working on the bearings, replacing rings, pistons or any of the Numerous jobs performed with the crankcase off. Remove the Fab Pulley Nut, screw in the threaded bolt into the Crank Shaft & rest the foot of the Tool on the Chassis. An easy turn of the forcing screw raises or lowers the Motor to proper working position. The use of a Conventional Jack is Dangerous. With this Tool, you can make Road repairs easier Ex. changing Water Pumps & Raising the Motor to working on Transmission Problems. Tool Wt. 2 lbs. 6 oz. Height 11". Easley carried in your car to take on Road Trips.

Looks interesting but on mine I don't have access to the pulley from under the car ( it's sealed )
Also question the "working on Transmission Problems" part, since you are only lifting the front of the engine.

I guess mine would be the K.R. Wilson engine stand. I gets used the most and is a wonderful tool when working on Flatheads and V12 engines.

My dad had two brothers and all three were car nuts back in the 40's, 50's and 60's. My uncle Tom Baker patented this puller which I have inherited from my dad. I don't think it made him much money, but it's my favorite tool for strictly personal reasons.

Not sure if you are asking about tools made by or for FoMoCo and/or tools that someone has personally made themselves to use while working on their Early Ford V8? The tools I like the most are the ones I have made myself.
Hub/drum puller, steering wheel puller, pinion and pinion bearing removal tool, press on timing gear puller, distributor bearing removal and replacement tools, oil seal installation tool for torque tube and axle housing, tool for removing outer race bearing in axle housing, intake mount engine hoist plates, adjustable angle exhaust mount engine stand adaptor, exhaust mount engine storage stand with wheels, spring spreader, Stromberg carburetor throttle bushing removal and installation tools, bolt on engine block legs for block transport or storage, and probably a few I can't remember at the moment. I guess I enjoy making tools to work on my early V-8's almost as much as I enjoy owning and driving them.
Out of the above list, I like the hub/drum puller and the adjustable angle exhaust mount engine stand adaptor the most because I use those the most.
