It's the sensor head of a combustible fume detector alarm.

Would this have been an original Atomic 4 option or from someone else?
Will chase the wire and see if it really goes anywhere.

Nice of you to say John, thank you. I believe in my heart everyone here has the ability to produce similar results with the knowledge base and experience available on this forum.

I offer Mr. Stanley's chart table project as an example:

Ok..Now that ndutton is trying to set a standard?!?!? . I know you see the paint flakes and rust chips all over my engine compartment. Keep in mind that this is hospital clean compare to how it was when I bought it. The engine / engine compartment, was literally a rust and grease ball.

WW, No judgement here...Mine was the same way..I wasn't sure there was even an engine under all the rust and grease...they will come back though with a little TLC!

Wrongway, you should have seen my boat when I bought it 12 years ago, not a pretty sight but it was complete and functional in all aspects, just needed a little love. Well, maybe a lotta love.
