    Early tool kit geeks,

    It has been pointed out in a Private Message to me by a member who wishes to remain anonymous that "it is presumptious to say these shinny tabbed bags" are the "correct" ones for all these early 901s and 911s or "One Swallow does not a summer make." He is correct, of course, in that from just few examples it is not statistically valid to then assume that over 1,000 cars have this bag. I will say this, however, Out of the six or so original (not restored-mostly rusty cars in "ads" for eBay and other sources) with tool kits, ALL have these tabbed bags.

    Please other members with knowledge of this topic, Chime in ! We only know what we learn from lots of folks and lots of examples. Thanks !

    And BTW, IF the tabbed two-tone bag is NOT the de facto standard, what other type(s) of bags were found in the earliest 901/911s? Thanks.

    My question is about the 19mm lug wrenches. I assume the taper on the lug wrench was to act as the handle for the older VW/bug style jack. When Porsche changed to the green dot screw jack, there would not be a need for the slimmer tip on the lug wrench. So my question is could a 73 tool roll be correct with a non tapered lug wrench? I have someone with a 73 they bought new and it has a non tapered lug wrench. Patina on all the tools looks consistent.

    IMHO I would say it is unlikely a '73 kit came with a non-tapered lug wrench. You make a good point about the taper not being needed but I've never seen a non-tapered one in an original kit. Could a non-tapered one be put in a kit during the transition to 1974 cars? Of course it could but, frankly, the tapered one is the de facto standard. If it were my car, I'd have both with a fun little story. Thanks.
