OK as I was posting I figured out what three of things are but do you know? Just say yes if you do.

I’m pretty sure the one on the Bottom left goes to an RD (I think) but which one?

Yup. The imprinted torque numbers and brake-cable-for-scale are a dead giveaway.

TMI. Yeah the brake cable being there was an accident.

Should this become a thread?

If so, I propose 2 rules:

1) Stumpers should be posted as photos alone, with no explanation, or at most with minimal backstory describing how the part was obtained, but only if that story is kinda cool.
​​​​
2) No new stumpers until the chumps have either figured out, or been stumped by, the previous stumper.

--Shannon

PS: This could be hella fun!

I met one of them (Ray?, the shorter one) when I visited The Good News Garage on a layover at Logan Airport back in the day when you could put your bags in a locker and jump on the "T" (Boston's subway system). The garage? Just nested in an older street of residences and trees. Didn't stand out at all. Same architecture, just a garage door instead of a front porch. Ray? A Boston Italian version of a good old boy you'd trust in a second to fix your old car. Loved that show. And it saved my butt once.
