A friend sent me some photos of a "device" he found in a garage.

Three images are attached.
His guess (and, my guess) is that it is a fuse.

713-21 is marked on the top chamfered corner.
It is just over an inch long, 1/2 inch wide and 1/4 inch thick.
There is very low resistance across the top flat contacts and none at the blade receptacle.

Does anyone recognize this?

Thanks, Tim

- The 216 and early 235 engine are not "splash oilers" - this is a splash oiler.

It looks like a glass fuse inside in your third pic. Are you saying that there's an open circuit between the two ends (black and clear with the brass terminal)?

I would guess a fuse as well, but as far as what special type it might be, I have no idea.

It looks like the black part might snap off it you depress the tabs on the sides.
