Here it is: The Gizmo [bunlimited.com]

What is it, and can you provide a link?

I'm not very good at generating key words on this one. And since my brain is not making any connections on its own, I think a small clue is in order.

No lock and key [cityoflancasterpa.com] here

a small clue: part of this gizmo's job is to dampen vibration

Hate to leave, but I'm old and I usually take a nap around this time on Saturdays.

You can hold it in your hand. 4-6" or so.

Nope. Not a bike [localmotion.org]

ta, for the clues ;) - what about the door?

Is it part of a "brake" system?

bunltd

Not part of a braking system, but that's a bit closer to it's use. :)

vroom vroom

was thinking brake too, but more support..

trouble is our garage is so full of junk am having trouble thinking about what should be in it ;)

what about the door, was also thinking about the anti-fall mechnism for the door, which helps the vibration as it "up and overs"?

warm or freezing :)

No doors. Typically you'd find this further forward...

OK I'm awake. Looking at the clues and the crudeness of the gizmo, it must be a motor mount (car engine).

bunltd

Who are you calling crude? LOL. Nice nap?

It is a motor / engine mount. Think that's a win? Or should I hold you to finding a link or more specific identification?

lawman

After I thought I figured it out, I searched for "motor mount pictures", but couldn't find that exact one. If someone finds it, I guess we could be co-winners.

bunltd




msg:3719357

Doubtful to find the exact one, the pic itself isn't in the index, although the page [festivamotorsport.com] is. It's for a vehicle no longer in production, but that is gathering quite a following because of gas prices... Have one sitting in my driveway. :)

I believe that makes you the winner. :)

The closest I could find was HERE [images.google.com].

OK, I guess that means I'll do the one next week. Will probably start earlier - maybe around 9 EDT.

That's close. Little car.

Mine's from a Ford Festiva aka Festy.

Looks like some type of pully clutch or brake, as if it controlled a rope or a
cord passing through it...KF

KF, you're a little late to the partay. LOL

It's one of the motor mounts on a Ford Festiva - there are 3 - one like this and two of another type.

My gizmos are usually tougher, but lawman has more funny pictures. Tune in next week.
