    Hello all ,,i have a question i'm hopeing someone can shed some light on . i got this from a friend of mine who said he got it from a older man who was stationed onboard a carrier in okinawa during ww2,,he said the plane it came from was a japanes zero that crashed into his ship ..it appeares to be some sort of regulator ..fuel or air ? i'm trying to figure out what it is ..it has a bunch of markings on the bottom side of it and appeares to have had 2 hoses running into the side of it ..with an adjustment screw on top ,,i've found out that it has nakajima proofs on it but still don't have a clue as to what it is or a possible plane it could have been used on ..any help would be appreicated
    thanks
