There will always be variations and differences from what is presented here. This site should be considered a work in progress, and not a definitive statement on what is correct for 356 tool kits.

Generator pulley wrench

Not much to say about these. There are two main varieties: one for Pre-A through B, and one for C. They are basically the same except for the finish. They fit the 36mm nut on the generator pulley.

Pre-A through B

Painted gloss black, about 5mm thick, 250mm in length.

I have observed 2 varieties of this wrench, different in the sharpness of the corners around the socket end. The earlier ones have sharper corners, the later ones are more rounded (also like the C chrome versions). The difference is shown in this picture:

The upper wrench is from a 1958 toolkit, the lower one from a 1963 toolkit. I also have a "sharp" version that i believe is original to an early B kit.

I suspect the change occurred around 1962-63

Satin chrome finish, about 5mm thick, 250mm in length.

New reproductions of both types are readily available at low cost.
