Default Help ID some old IHC hand tools

I have had these old IHC tools for years. I'd like to know if anybody can tell me what pieces of equipment or engine(s) they came with when new. Look at the pictures for a better idea....The monkey wrench has part # 2786 and 2788 cast into it. It opens about 2 inches and has a hammer head on the moving part. It has an Acme square thread in the adjuster. It is 8-1/4" in length....The small wrench is marked 12737DA and is 3/8" on the small and 7?16" in the large. It is 5-3/8" in length.

IHC wrenches like that had many aplications-- in other words they were supplied or came in the tool boxes of many diffrent tractors, equipment and a lot of stationary engins--- just do a google search of 12737DA for example. Other than that if you really want more info one has to study the wrench closer ---style of printing of the part numbers-- as they used the same part number for many many years ---but the early ones will have diffrent printing than the later ones.

Brian, Are you sure the number is 12737DA, as I have two wrenches listed with that number. One is 1/4 by 3/8 inches and the other wrench is 1/4 by 5/16 inches. As for the 2788 monkey wrench, the number really is Z788. in the parts books the number they used was M446M or M446, monkey wrench with knurled adjusting nut. It was used on; 1. International Hay loaders, McCormick Stackers and McCormick Baling Press-1 horse baling press (1909). 2. McCormick Daisy Reaper (1890-1920). 3. McCormick-Deering Vertical Corn Binders, two row corn binders built 1930 and since. 4. McCormick Harvester and Binders (1901-1924). McCormick-Deering Huskers and Shredder wrench-Little Giant (1896-1922). 5.McCormick-Deering Huskers & Shredder wrench-Special (1908- 1928). 6. McCormick-Deering Ensilage Cutters. 7. McCormick Corn Harvesters (1899-1923). 8. McCormick NO.2 Corn Pickers (1910-1920). 9. Milwaukee Corn Harvester (1902-1927. I am sure there was more uses for this wrench than the above. Hope this will be of help. Let me no the size opening for 12737DA. At least, this will give you something to start on. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your family. Joe A.

WOW! I guess that monkey wrench is truly a wrench of a thousand uses! I did look at it closer and the numbers do start with a Z instead of a 2. The little wrench is definitely 12737DA and sizes are 3/8" X 7/16". I now know more about these old tools than I did this mornin', thanks and appreciation to Joe and Ron!
