Ok guys, what car would you find this throttle linkage going THRU the engine block? This is on a new purchase of a friend of mine. I thought it was cool.

I believe the Model T was the first mass produced car. If not, then Henry got the recognition for it anyway. :-)

Yep Jay it is a T, that just made me chuckle, there is a hole right thru the block where the throttle linkage goes!

It's your floor!

I stumbled upon an interesting unusual car part the other day that made me want to try to kick-start this trivia thread again.

Here it is:


This is a universal aftermarket part used to solve a particular problem. What was the purpose of this device?

Haven't seen one of those for a while - they are used as a spark plug extender for cars that burn too much oil. No clue how or if they work, but a guy I used to work with had them in a 302 that had 250,000 miles and in a Lincoln

Spark plug extension. Supposed to prevent fouling. That's my guess. I had never actually seen one before.
Do I win?

You got it first, Dave.

Not sure what the proper name for them is, but they were available from JC Whitney and some auto parts stores. They stop/slow oil fouling of spark plugs in engines that burn excessive oil by shrouding the plug and getting it out of the path of oil vapor in the combustion chamber.





Dave, the floor is yours...

I would love to see a test on a dyno at what horsepower loss would be associated with their use.
