Wow, I can't believe anyone on planet earth would even consider the object in photo #1 is anything at all but a redictulous attempt at a little
humorous prank to mess with your friends with!
Are you telling me someone actually tried to claim THIS is a U.F.O.?
I've heard one of CoasttoCoastam's shows on this subject, but never SAW the photos' in question,
I can't believe George would have ever considered having someone on his show if he had actually seen these photo's.
Wow again, If he did see these pic's and still had the guy on, He's completely lost any credibility (yes I know it's a
conspiracy/U.F.O/Theoretical-whatever show), but, I've always thought that he at least had some standards!
Anyway I recognized this item right off the bat because I had the unfortunate experiance of working on my buddies 1967 VW Bus on the side of the road
at 1a.m. pitch dark dirt road in the middle of a desolate valley in the mountains of San Diego's back country.
It's a flywheel for the afour mentioned vehicle!
Did anyone notice the VW bus in the background with the plastic tarp covering the engine compartment and the motor trolley cart setting in front of
This is the funniest thing I've ever seen!
It really does look like he was just havin' fun with the new flywheel before installing it onto the engine on his bus!
And also the curved metal piece just below the second row of ball-bearings is an upside-down magnetic bowl for cleaning/holding small parts. also the
bottm of the unit with the amber half-domes is another parts bowl!
the amber plastic-looking half-round items are colored inserts for diode light kits. You can get them at radio shack, cheap! (also the blue ones are
the complete kits from R.S. stuck in the balance holes (drilled to balance flywheel)
And I think the round disfigurement on the bottom between the blue diode is the casting attachment spot where you detach (cut with blowtorch) whatever
part your making from an assembly that casts a bunch of the parts at once. ( then you place a little round plate in that spot and weld it in place to
cover/protect from rusting internal casting metal).
And Yes, great work on id'ing the exuast gaskets!
