Re: Any Ideas What This Is?

Is that power going to it? Or just wires routed around it?

Re: Any Ideas What This Is?

Tubing doesn't look like anything that would be used for fuel venting. I think it was nailed in post 23.

But then I also believe it is a term used in horse racing or gambling isn't it!

Boaty, he was talking about accumulators. His point was about knowing what an accumulator was as had been pimped from previous poster who asked how many of us knew what they were. I didn't respond because I also know the capital of France, both of which are elementary knowledge and not worth a response; heh.

Re: Any Ideas What This Is?

Googling "Navtec hydraulic fluid reservoir" shows photos of identical unit and some other system parts & info if anyone's interested.

I copied the photos originally posted and asked Google to search for similar photos & got nothing. It's often worked before but it seems like Google's been dumbed down over the last year or two.

It's easy to tell that some of the recent suggestions (after #23) are just for fun but others seem to be still guessing away at it

It's a grissenfaufer that's connected to the doohickey for cases of rare circumstances. My best guess and no guarantee.
