There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

Looks a lot like one. However, this thing is a "spreader", not a "squeezer". Maybe I'll think of something, but haven't yet.

Yes, it seems to spread and not compress.

It is probably about 8" long. It belongs to one of the firemen across the road. I won't see him again until whenever his next shift is.

I still think it's a valve spring compressor. The ones for flat head engines are spreaders, they push against the lower casting, has a cut out to straddle the lifter. Ones like this are mostly used for smaller flat head engines.

What is the shape of the outer surface of the forked end on the right?

Jim, I would have to go over and find out when he works again. Then I will have to ask him to bring it in. He works part time and his hours are hit and miss.

I know what you're getting at, Jim, I don't think they're shaped right, either. Might have some other purpose, entirely.

In the second picture you can mostly see the shape of the outer side of the left fork. It isn't shaped right for fitting against a valve. Maybe the outer side of the right fork is. Clearly there is some difference in the shape of the two forks.

Here's a similar looking tool on ebay listed as a valve spreader for a flat head engine: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Antique-Vintage-Kay-Dee-Universal-Valve-Spreader-1927-tool-/264676350308
