Any idea what this is? I have a bag of a few hundred of these amongst a pile of NOS Ford parts. Just curious what it is.

Thanks!

They look like "Exhaust Manifold Bolt Locks" (you place them under the bolts, kind of like a washer, then when you are tight you bend the little ears up so that are flat with the sides of a hex bolt, to keep the bolts from backing out), but those ones don't look like they would fit around an exhaust port, at least not on a Ford V8 anyways. Don't know if this helps any, hopefully someone here knows the exact answer for you.

It must be from an engine with very small ports as the centerline distance is 1.343. I agree it looks like it may be for exhaust but also very small?

Thanks,

I totally forgot that chebbies use them for the cam sprockets, I am so used to seeing them for exhaust bolts I didn't even think of any other use. Now I have a question, since it's said they were found in with a bunch of Ford NOS items...did Ford use them on any of the earlier engines?

They go on the Bolts Between ports not across the ports, right?...?...?...
Meaning only 3 per side of the car with lock washer on last 2 bolts on the manifold?
Is that a possibility?
