Mystery part

Recommended Posts

So, I am guessing that these are there to either hold breather hoses or the gremlins’ drinks?:

So, that cad-plated bracket is for the two 1/2" (yes, inch measure) rubber lines that are the final exit point for the US  fuel vapor recovery system from the fuel tank vent, vacuum taps on the intakes, and charcoal canisters that were in the tool tray under the seat on early sports. It was twenty feet (!) of 1/2" US made fuel line. The whole shebang weighed five pounds (another !).

If you decide to remove the nice little bracket be prepared for the stream of gear oil that comes shooting out ($#!*!)

Yep, you don't have to ask me how I know . . . :o

Thank you very much, Doc! I was going to remove it as it’s doing nothing there. Wow! I sure am glad that I asked! I almost didn’t because I don’t want to eat up time and bandwidth with more dumb questions. Why on Earth would they tap the screw hole all the way through the gear case? That seems like it’s introducing another potential leak source.

Surprised the MushyPeas outta me when I thought, "I'll just pull this silly thing off" . . .
