Default I.D. Snake-like Wrench

Trying to identy this wrench / tool. From a farm lot of tools that had included so far John Deere wrenches, a Moline plow wrench, a Mack truck wrench, a Model T wrench. There is a slight bow in the wrench, which I assume is intentional to the design as I think it would break rather than bending that much from us.

Thanks for your time.

Now that I know what to search for, I found examples of this wrench on eBay via Google image search. These are exactly the same except they have a raised "Mack" script in the center of the tool. It appears to be a Mack Truck Valve Lifter Wrench.

I have 1 of those snake tools too. Not marked with any name. Now I know what it is. I also have the wooden handled fork tool in the other pic. I always thought it was a front end work tool. Know I know otherwise. Thanks Rob
