  9. Is it something from one of those semi-automatic transmissions from the 30s or 40s?
    It looks like it had some type of fluid in it. :confused:
  10. Is it out-of-a-Focus?
  11. Some of us might want more than one picture.

  12. It's a front-wheel-drive Toronado tornado warning device. Or maybe that's a Studebaker in your profile picture.

    It sure would be nice if you had two of those! Then you would have a pair of them, just as it should be.

    "Clutch can for a F.E.D?"
    Not sure what an FED is...
    Those little bumps around the top had me thinking it was some sort of torque converter but it was just too big for that.
    It is a can for a multi disk clutch, the oil plug gave me a clue...Guess it used like 6+ disks. Early Stutz piece from the Teens! It has a clutch brake there on the back.

    Ok. For all you newbies who don't know about the "poo grinder". Here it is. It took some searching to find. Easily the funniest thing I've ever read on the HAMB.

    on 01-24-2002 @ 06:46 PM

    You know that feeling 'cause you tinker with cars you think you can fix anything?

    Well sometimes you better not try, here's why:

    I live in an old house from the twenties with originally just one toilet, outside, where you take a crap right into the sceptic tank, somewhere down the line whoever lived here got sick of his ass freezing to the toilet seat in winter and they installed a bathroom on the second floor.

    Unfortunately they cut a few corners and instead of running a big pipe up to the second floor to dispose of turds they installed a 'brouilleur": one of those big blenders behind the toilet bowl so they can run the chopped turds down the little sink-drain pipes. Dunno if you have those things over there, they're kinda comparable to those blenders you Americans have in your kitchen sinks.

    Anyway, our "brouilleur" has been acting up for months, it just kept on going, normally it shuts itself off 30 seconds after you flushed, first it became a minute, then it just wouldn't shut off at all. So what we do is take a crap, flush, wait 30 seconds then pull the plug. Been going on like that for weeks, so today I finally get my courage together to do the dreaded job of checking out the shit-caked brouilleur box. It's a white plastic box that sits right behind the toilet bowl and out the top comes a small pipe that dissapears into the wall.

    It only took a couple of minutes to unhook it, and without getting too much shit on my hands. I take the lid of to be greeted by the most horendous sight ever, tubes and mechanisms with a nice old layer of shit in all shades of brown over 'em.

    Take the thing downstairs and outside and pour it's contents over the fence (no neighbours) then take it into the garage and put it in the sink.

    I can't see anything, first of all 'cause I can only look at it why holding my breath (me, a smoker, 10 seconds), secondly 'cause you can't see anything other then shit in the shape of machinery.

    Logic tells me the mechanism probably shuts off and on with the level of water/piss/sheit in the box. So I decide to plug it in and run water from the tap in it to see what happens.

    It fills up, and up, and up when all of a sudden the thing starts mixing, and, remember the pipe coming OUT THE TOP, and THE LID BEING OFF????? There was a fountain of shit coming out of that thing all the way to the ceiling!!!! Of course most of it caught me on it's way back down, it was horrendous, I was shitman, the white T-shirt didn't help either, in my hair, fuck, everywhere...

    The missus is still laughing, and I've just spent two hours in bath, changing the water 3 times.....

    So, my guess is it is a brouilleur!

    Note to self:
    Next time the brouilleur needs rebuilding, do this instead, burn the house down.

    I was gonna guess a PTO housing for and old tractor, but that seems pretty boring after reading the poo grinder story!!! I will say that I'm glad there was a spare keyboard laying around here, 'cause the last one got drowned in Old Style after reading rockable's post!!! That shit was funny! (No pun intended...) :D
  27. That was hilarious ,man.:p

    I don't know, it kind of looks like this. A boat transmission.
