OK, my good mate has a 1953 Ford Mainline Ute, now hanging off
the exhaust manifold (on the left hand manifold only when viewed from
the front with bonnet up) is this . . .umm thing. It screws into the
manifold with a pipe about 5/16" bore and about 12" long , on the end of
the pipe is a thing about 2" in diameter and about 3/8" thick. called a
"Gefarator" information stamped onto a plate riveted to this thing is as
"Gefarator . . . exhaust pulse operated air injector and vapour condensor"
