Went to an antique furniture sale/swapmeet this last weekend and ran across some small I quess what use to be called ford adjustable wrenchs.
they are like a cresent wrench except they open on the side instead of the end.
They look like a pipe wrench but without teeth. so ya might try old ford restoration shops the ones i saw ranged from about 4 inchs long up to 12.
The four inch ones opened up to 1 1/2"
so something like this might work for ya if you happen to have ford restorers around.

Go to www.boon.nl for orginal valve cover wrenches (in the valve section of the '41-'52 750cc online catalog). Priced at DFL 17.50 (~ US$ 9.00). My WLA did have a wobbly feel to it also, but since I changes the rear tire from a thin sidewall Swallow to a heavy Barum it is very stable.

Hey, PietJan - I tried www.boon.nl and it looks like some accounting company...do you have the right URL for that site? It sounds like it might be a good source for flattie parts (maybe I can get that 45 done someday!).
Thanks -

Ooops. The URL is www.jwboon.nl !! Good source for original parts anyway. A bit on the expensive side for dutch clients, but the best for NOS
