    About your screwdriver, Jim,..

    It looks like maybe its a knob at the base of the blade, instead of a crimped collar. Does it unscrew to release the blade?

    Are there two ends to the blade?

    Hi Cotten, no the base of the screwdriver does not unscrew. It is a slotted screwdriver only.

      Thanks Rubone!! OK, now I am a new 1946 Indian owner as of Oct. 2020. I am still 'learning' about Indians and I have to wonder when did Indian go from Motocycle to Motorcycle (added the "R"). Now I'll have to look for Vlcheck tools in those "bargain" Tool piles!

        Lots of different stamped ones too Jim. And various adjustables for Indian. The four on the left of the picture are all stamped Indian or Hendee but made by others. DCP_2252.JPGDCP_2254.JPG

          • While having a general clean-up I pulled out my box of HD factory tools and cleaned them all up.
            Here's some that haven't been posted before and if the word available appears that will indicate that I'm prepared to sell that particular item
            This one is available DSCF3893.JPG ​​​​​​​

              • This one has me stumped.
                It has been well used and repaired but what is it for? DSCF3907.JPGDSCF3906.JPG

                  • Until I started this tool sort out I didn't realize that there were so many differences to the HD chain breakers.
                    The top one has no part number cast on it.
                    The second one has but has no hyphen between the Harley Davidson.
                    The next one has the Harley Davidson name in a different font
                    The last one has the threaded end with the long pin to assist with pin removal DSCF3958.JPG

                    • Dear Tommo, your well used item might be a pinion gear puller. You'd push it over the gear, give a quarter turn to lock it, then pull out the gear with that fine thread producing plenty of traction.
