• Fun indeed! My immediate reaction was that these bits come off a steam engine of some sort. I could be totally wrong….

    • Good guess, but his main claim to fame was designing the brushless motor. They're definitely parts for an electric motor or a generator however. But then there's a set of valves or draincocks and fluid level indicators that look like they're off an old steam engine…

  • I want to say that it looks like an ye ol mechanical fuel injector, british or italian…has nothing to do about the rust though I swear.

  • Sight glasses, two kinds of petcocks, bigass big amperage communicator brushes, those two objects with the holes in them in the lower right that look like very high pressure valves. And if these are spare parts, there must have been a handful at least built. If I knew of any Edwardian steam electric hybrids…

    Are these supposed to have been all part of the same car? Otherwise they seem pretty small like out of a De Dion-Bouton or similar.

  • found it – proof/hint below – anyhoo, Vince will be able to take a lot more photos of these parts as I have "won" the auction and had them sent over 😉
