A friend of mine has this and we both wanted to know what it is? Hopefully someone can shed some light on this.
Timer elevator. Supposed to get the timer up out of the dirt and oil.
A. Transmission cover for a Maytag washing machine.
B. Bearing retainer for the oblong bearings on the front of an Acme Skyhook.
C. Motor mount for the tesla power unit on a 1944 General Motors Volt.
D. All the above.
E. None of the above.
I. Cast aluminum cover light enough to get a good swing onto Mike's Head
Dang it Andy, I knew I paid you way too soon for those parts.
well that will teach ya
I'm sorry, Andy is wrong, the part is universal for all three applications on Bizzaro World. Therefore the answer is J.
Could be Fordson tractor.
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.
