What is this JT Slocomb tool?

Does anyone know the use for this JT Slocomb (micrometer?) tool? It was in a box of KR Wilson Model A tools.

Charlie,
I'm running an 18 tooth gear on a 3.78 rear end. My speedometer is dead on with my Garmin using this gear.

Cracked Speedometer Gear Housing

I discovered this while under the car this weekend. I didn't notice any crack when I installed it a year ago. Thoughts on the cause?

Re: Fumaze

Re: Shredded the timing gear...but how?

That's a great question. They only milled .010 so I sure wouldn't think they would hit. Heard AER is now milling all Snyder's 6.0 heads before assembly. Here are pictures of 1 & 2 and 3 & 4 when I...

Re: Shredded the timing gear...but how?
