A friend of mine, who sells houses, found this during a cleanup. Looks to be a valve cover or maybe a lifter cover from a big old flathead. I have never seen a "Wood" tractor or anything of that nature. It is aluminum, and very thick as you can see.

Anyone know what it is from?

When I was in HS I worked at a Ice-cream novelty factory and we had these huge ass moters for the Refrigerant (r-50) to keep the warehouse coolers cold.
they were run by electric motors so the piston covers didn't need and spark plug (Holes), looked like this

I was thinking some kind of access plate designed with structural integrity in mind but those tiny mounting holes don't make sense then.

Bet it belongs to this Tank equipment CO. there in P.A established in 1887.
One of their older Models.
Send them the question I bet they could answer it.

It's a retail sign. Goes over one section of product at a lumberyard. Actually, it's the only section.

No shit, I sent a few e-mails out. I'll get the part number on the back tomorrow. Seems awfully thick for a retail sign.

It's an inspection cover for a large Marine reciprocating engine I'm guessing.
