Default What the hell is this? (or, "please help identify this")

So I stopped at a garage sale this morning and found a bunch of homebrewing supplies. Sadly, no tap setup, but still, how often do you find homebrewing stuff at garage sales? (The best part? I offered him half what he wanted for it and he accepted. I thought he'd at least bargain with me for somewhere in the middle, but no! $20 for everything. Couldn't resist my charm, apparently. Ha!)

I basically got a beginner's homebrewing kit minus the grains and yeast, with a few extras that appear to be for an all-grain setup. I recognize all of it except this little bugger:



Is this a brewing related part at all, or just some random piece o' crap that somehow ended up in the pile of stuff? If anyone can identify it, I'd appreciate it. Thanks!

Looks like points to me too. What's the gap setting?

(On second thought, we should have made something (interesting) up).

Lawnmower engine? Wonder if the guy needs it back? (And how the hell did it get in the bucket of homebrewing gear? )

Thanks for the info!

Now I have to decide what to brew with my new equipment.
