Description:
Long wire handle, with a "U" clip at the end for oil level petcocks on Model T Ford engines, a fold-out wire that would clean dirt from the central bore of the petcock, and scale marks to serve as a fuel level "dipstick".

A FAWSCO ad in the February 1923 AUTOMOBILE DEALER AND REPAIRER cites the patent and warns the auto trade not to purchase infringing look-alikes. An earlier J.H. FAW Co. ad calls attention to the three functions.
