No. Nothing to do with carburetors or toilets.
Ok here is a hint. It's used to mess around with parts inside of the engine.

I went through both my tool boxes bottom drawers and I could not find one in either box and I will bet I never used one before I got up.

It looks like small knurl wheels but I can't tell for sure.

some sort of cleaning wheel to dress up threads like on a bolt? Also looks like old tubing cutter. But I can't think of anything it would be for "before breakfast"

Well, I have heard of knurling valve GUIDES to make them fit a little tighter to the valve, but that tool looks more suited to knurling valve STEMS.???

Oh well - Parts INSIDE the engine...

When it put it that way it becomes glaringly obvious!

It is the adjuster for the jambalator which is installed for cleaning the sensor on the framistat so that the blinker fluid won't leak all over the foo-foo pin on the krunky-shaft!

It is also used (as I used mine before breakfast this morning) for getting the toast outta the toaster when it is stuck!

All cars, big or small, injected, blown, supercharged, propane fueled, natural, gassed, mo gas, av gas, diesel, bio-fueled and those run on grain alcohol or peanut oil. Oh yeah, wood or coal.

That was the original intent of the man who invented it, but it had had the same problem over and over. It kept overshooting the cafrabulater and as we all know that means the hypoloxilator would continuously freep. Couldn't have that so he used it as a tool for the inner working of the modern and not so modern engine.
