A little parts quiz

Post by Steve Jelf » Sun Nov 03, 2019 11:26 pm

I just came across this quiz from about six years ago./

Lots of people can ID some or most of them. I wonder if anybody can name all ten.

2, 4 and 8 stump me. 10 looks like the bolt on a rear wheel hub holding the drum. If you redo that now you need a grinder because there is no difference between front and rear bolts.

Going on proportions, that is a front shackle bush. I don't see a valve stem use for the washer, unless it is used under a repop bridge washer with no inbuilt ridge.

Nobody got all of them yet, but one person got 90%. I'll post answers this evening.

Yeah, I dorked up #6 and don't know why...DOH! So obvious.

actually the separate bridge washer piece looks a lot like that but that's not what it was.

#6 Looks like the seat base mount washer typical to tudor sedan passenger seat bases. I think that’s the one everyone missed.

#8 is from a Kingston L2 carburetor. Holley G had an offset at the bottom and was put together a bit different.

I think you're right

3, 6 and 8 were stumping me (didn't blow up the picture to see 8 better). I discounted 6 as being a valve spring seat as the hole is too big. 3 could also be a coil box terminal nut.

Hey Steve, Are you mistaken on #6? The hole looks WAY too big...

I could be. I can't find any record of the answers when I posted this quiz almost seven years ago. Here's the original picture of #6. Blowing it up to full size loses a lot of resolution.

IMG_0135 copy 2.JPG
IMG_4382 copy.JPG
Here's a for sure known valve spring retainer. I agree with Adam. The hole in #6 looks too big to match. So now I've mystified myself. I didn't find any radiator washers that match either, so I'm stumped.

I'm still suspicious that it is one of the various mfg loose clamp rings placed under the bridge washer

Yes, it has a round hole, but frankly I do not see how that materially would affect it's operation when installed

The bridge washer would be flipped over when installed and press down on the washer when the stem nut was tightened when the stem is just inserted in the tube. The raised area on the washer would press down on the tube to seal it around the stem. The washer would/could be used under the bridge washer type shown that does not have the raised area embossed in it. The just bridge washer shown would work for tubes that have the stem vulcanized to them without the additional washer under it. Ok that is how I see it.

Steve: Many years ago I remember having a 1920's, pre 1926, aluminum hub fan with stock arm and fan blades, the one with the oiling plug. On the back side of the hub it had a cupped washer with felt and a smaller flat washer between the felt and the fan hub bushing. That cupped washer looked like the #6 unknown part.

Kevin, that is a good thought, but I don't think it is correct either. That washer is quite thin. The base is flat, and the sides are at right angles rather than rounded as this one shows. The transition from the flat to the right angled sides is quite narrow and sharper than this one. I can't find one to photograph it at the moment.

Does this resemble the one Steve posted?. I can’t tell the size from his pics

that particular one looks like a felt retaining washer from a generator ball bearing

Yup. That’s the felt retainer on the bearing on the brush plate end of the generator. Is that the washer in Steve’s pics?

While the part shown in the last two photos is the generator oil slinger, it is not the same as one shown in Steve's first photo.

Mark, you're right, it's not the same part as in Steve's picture, but you're at the wrong end of the generator...it's not the slinger, though, the slinger is cup-shaped, so sort of 1/2 right... :)

I am curious, though, if the bearing-felt retaining washer pictured would in fact have been listed as a slinger or a washer...since only a few drops of oil are involved at that end of the generator vs the front, I'd bet it is just "washer".

The quiz photo was a low tech affair, with all the pieces laid out together in a single shot. We know the front spring/perch bushing is 2", so compared to that the mystery item appears to be a hair under 1½". That should rule out some suspects.

Dang, I was putting a new armature into my generator and saw that felt seal washer and thought for sure I was onto something

Steve, the rear spring perch bushing is 2". Front ones are 1.5". That makes a difference when making estimations. I still don't know what the washer is!
