Looks like some kind of adjustable relief/regulating valve.

I have to agree with Ron on this. Hood latch on your MG.

Explosively dangerous.

Likely the hood latch spring, although it could be a valve spring. The funny bolt through the aparatus makes me more inclined to agree with a hood latch.

You guys are just too smart..............and you know my history.

A reason I offered this is because the thread I used to secure the spring is the parachute rigging thread that I bragged about here many, many pages ago. If it handled that heavy duty spring, it should handle my control line airplanes quite well.

And yes, I kinda held my breath and was cautious when I released the spring from the vice.

Speaking of compressing springs, I used this to compress my 2001 Kawasaki ZG1200-B13 Voyager front fork springs, so I could remove the wire C-clip holding the end plug in.

This is so I could replace the worn out stock springs that use air pressure with Progressive springs that don't need air.

Also improvised a sliding hammer seal setter with a galv. cast iron 1-1/2"x2 pipe nipple and 2"x1-1/2" pipe reducer bushing. Used the pipe nipple to set the front shock fork seal, other end of the reducer to set the dust cover.

Good solution,  I did something similar on my Honda S-90 when I rebuilt the front shock assembly.  I had to tie off the hood latch spring as the bitter end had to screw into the capture nut inside the hoods frame.

Compressing the springs on my 1959 Corvette took a spring compressor though.  When you do this stuff your always on your best behavior. Smile

Got the other side of the hood painted this morning, and some of the body work done.  Lot's of plastic in there.

After:  A chrome trim piece covers the wavy line between black and white.  Still lot's of work to do.
