Hi friends. Yeah, I'm still alive. Was going through some stuff out in the workshop this morning and came across something I picked up at a swap meet in September of 2012. I thought it was interesting, and hey... it was shiny. In a nutshell, I traded some crap I had no idea about for some different crap I had no idea about, intending to research it and never got around to it. (The new job is pretty hectic.) I spent a few hours searching this morning and could only come up with a few basic assumptions; 1) it appears to mount to a pair of SU HS8 carburetors based on hole patterns, 2) it's probably from a British-made vehicle since some of the dash parts I got with it, supposedly from the same car, are wood and have Smith's components (was TOLD it was early Jaguar stuff), and 3) the casting number doesn't come back as squat. Oh yeah... and 4) it's shiny. So there ya go! If anyone can tell me what the hell it is before I stick it in some nondescript box out in the workshop, where it will probably sit and collect dust for another 10 years, I'd appreciate it. I don't deny that I have a ton of practically worthless stuff laying around out in the workshop, but at least I know what most of it is. This would be the exception. Thanks all! Hope you're all doing well and the projects are coming along for ya!
