I don't know what it fits, but if you have one, or can make one, I'll buy it. :smilewink:

That is a retainer for muffler bearings.  The only things missing are the iffen pins.    Rick

I concur..  Something like the 3 pronged clamp or hanger is logic-defying..  

 

Oh-  I've seen that picture before and somebody's messing with you!!  

 

Look HERE for more!

That's the bracket for a 1956 Studebaker Lark, it holds the muffler bearings, which connects to the gold plated knuten valve. Now don't confuse this with same bracket that hold the muffler bearing on the 1901 Volvo. The y will interchange if you add the correct self hanging z bracket.                                                   Roger

In the late 60s when artists were really experimenting with wild ideas someone came up with a series of optical illusions to show how the brain can be fooled. That is an adoption of one of them. I was a draftsman at the time and was facinated by the series. It gave me a new respect for some artists. Good Luck, Rick

We used them all the time at work to hold the sky hook from raising too high when we were working above it.And the nuts are combination right and left threads so we didn't have to think witch way to turn them.
