I have seen a picture of one of these on a driveable Franklin. I recently acquired just the cowl from a 1928 Franklin and now I have an actual unit. I still don't know what it is. Get in on the fun and add your guesses to mine.

 

PS; The picture needs to be rotated 90% to the left to show it's actual position. One end of it is mounted to the vertical surface of the cowl above the terminal strip on the drivers side.

Never seen one before.

 

If it's mounted where I think, that should be where the original vacum tank would have been. Looks like a rod going through the firewall. Maybe some type of hand operated fuel pump ?

My 11B had a Dole primer setup, a pump like a tire air hand pump in operation which pumped gas to three fittings on the intake manifold.  Have ask Bob Amon where it connects to the fuel supply system on Bertha.  It was mounted behind the dashboard with a good sized chrome/nickle knob for your pull-push operating pleasure.    Nothing like having gas leaking on the driver's left leg. Tried it once, didn't like it.
