  • What is it??

    Not known to me. If it is really valuable however you are forbidden to bid on it!

      No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

        I think the starting bid is too high.

          Two questions:
          1) What is the diameter?
          2) Is the cross-section of the material solid or is there a hollow/indented surface underneath?

          ...not that it would help me figure it out, but it might make for slightly more educated guessing.

            It's hard to judge the size (diameter) from the photo.

            Could it be a tool to remove/insert rear main bearing seals (or something similar to that)?

            It looks like about the right shape and has what appears to be a directional arrow.

            Anyway, that's my guess.

              Depending on the diameter of the object, perhaps the backside is formed to accept a front coil spring and it is a spring booster to compensate for worn springs. (Before anyone says it, yes, a used car dealer might be the first to suggest that! )

              Obviously, the dimensions and backside of the object would be determining factors, and neither specification seems to be listed. The fact that a pair is being sold might help validate that theory, but who knows? BP

                It looks like a very large and thick spring clip. The arrow might mean that is could be used on a Pierce-Arrow auto.

                  It is aluminum and I bought mine years ago advertised as a 'advertising horseshoe'. It appears that the ends of this one have been 'removed' or squared off. Mine are rounded and closed. At the widest point, it is 5-3/4". stupak

                    Bob's right. Coil spring booster. Backside is concave for spring seat.
