WHAT IS IT ???????

Recommended Posts

Looks like an early version of the Burgess air cleaner.  The cans were scientifically designed with baffles to damp out the sound made by a carburetor at wide open throttle.  The air cleaner part used cellulose fiber (wood shavings?) soaked in oil to trap dust.  The Burgess Silencers were part of the Burgess Battery Company.  The shapes evolved in the 1930s to something we would recognize more easily. 


Wasn't this covered a year ago?
