Default What's this?

Thought I'd start a general identification thread - I have quite a few things which are a bit of a mystery to me and also for others to post their old, but non-CMP things hopefully for a positive ID.

To start I have what looks to be a wire strainer of some sort. It's lightweight although rather beautifully made. It's about 18" or so long and over 2 feet extended.

As you say, Keith, a main bearing cap remover. The NSN shows it as a British origin, it looks like a special tool for Rolls Royce B range engines, ie B60, B80, B81

Good question Tony

The mains caps are low in the block and difficult to lift out, the two claws on the tool are clamped to the cap, it has a web on it to claws cannot slip off, the other part on the tool is used as a pivot and placed on the block flange for sump, lever pushed down.........cap comes up ! If this tool is for the RR B range, then it is missing two items, a couple of specail screws for removing the rear mains cap, these screws have a large diameter knurled head and are screwed in to the threaded hole in top of rear cap, and claws are then able to pull out this cap. reason for two screws, one is BSF ( early engines), and other is UNF (later engines).

Default Ford Part No. ID

I think this is a brake drum for the Ford truck (not CMP) of WW2:

Default First item

Going back to the first item in this thread I have found it was made for the Royal Australian Navy and used as a clamp of some sort so I hope this is a clue to it's final identification.
