MG TD TF 1500 - Any Idea?

These were loose parts that came with the car. Any idea what they are?

The badly rusted tin came with the tool kit & had a rubber tube inside used for bleeding the brakes. The tin for the TD was originally a bright yellow & was made by Lockheed. The earlier tins were a brown colour. I don't recognise the other item though it does look like a linkage from a carby, though not original to the TD. Cheers

The second piece is a fast-idle mechanism.

The one in the middle is a Stainless Steel Ruler!

Above correct. The fast idle link goes on the rear side of the front carb. The flipper piece pivots on a bolt and the other goes into a hole on the brass jet lever. George

Does anyone know if Bleeder are still making "Brain Tub's". I could use one!
