Looked a some Stuff in Texarkana today, anybody dot a clue what this is? The motor laying in it's side and I didn't have much time--106 in the shade and this was in full sun.
This is the top view of it. Is it some sort of a governor?
Just because a Fordson tractor has the same timer as a Model T doesn't mean that an accessory for the tractor will fit on a car beyond just mating to the circle around the camshaft on the timing cover of a car!
Fordson tractor governor.
It is a Strand governor for a tractor.
Here’s one that was on eBay
