Default Part needs ID

I picked this up in a box of treasures at a recent auction; it seems to be made of brass. the word ZERO is cast on one side. Stamped on a smooth portion is Detroit ???or (I suspect it was Motor) Co. Detroit, MICH, 1/4 pint, 702105. It's about 5 1/2 inches long and 2 inches in diameter.

I didn't want to put it in the scrap if it might be useful to someone.

As any utter novice would know, it is a left-handed feeblevetzer. I know it's a left handed one because the frammis is adjacent to the squelcher nut.

Actually (showing my ignerance here), it could be part of a Detroit Lubricator or part of a Detroit engine.

I think I'll stick with the left-handed feeblevetzer. Sounds more complicated.

Take care - Elden

PS: I know no one loves a smartass but sometimes I just can't help it......NOW, where did I put my meds???

I have one, that is the remains of a steam engine lubricator. Whats left, I think you can safely toss to the botton of the brass parts box.
