A friend of mine has this and we both wanted to know what it is? Hopefully someone can shed some light on this.

Thank you

I'm sorry, Andy is wrong, the part is universal for all three applications on Bizzaro World. Therefore the answer is J.

Timer mount with generator mount?

Looks like an in-complete Do-Hicky, to me.

I may be wrong but it looks like the timer cover for a 1923 Henway. It uses a "Newday" timer and it offsets the timer to provide easier access for cleaning. Just thinking.

Nah...can't be a Henway...

It's a Doancare...the double ignition adapter.

How it works is explained on the drawing.

My guess is that it's an adapters to mount a generator on an early block. You can clearly see fan belt marks on one end of the casting.

Congratulations to Mark Grequish !!! You grabbed the 'brass ring' ! It is, indeed, a governor for a Model F Fordson tractor. I took one just like it off my '19 Fordson.

Well that was fun. After shoveling all the s**t aside, we actually received a true answer, but that seems to happen with every question posted on this forum. Thanks Mark.

Well, we can't let this thread end like that; we need to do a bit more shovelling.

Norm Grabowsky built a well-known hot rod from a Henway truck years ago. When people would ask him, "What's a Henway?" he would answer, "About 6 pounds." :-)

Man, we're a little sensitive these days aren't we. But that's ok, this date has traditionally been a tough one for me.
