I would venture a guess that it is a variation of an insert. Little different than mine

Nozzle

That is a bolt on nozzle reducer. Alot of times the had an angle macchined in them so you could adjust up attitude in the nozzle housing. I don't remember the color coding so you will have to measure the inside diameter to see what size it is.

Yep, that makes sense and you're right. You can even see there is a bit of an eccentric (sp?) machined into it by the thickness of the flange so you could rotate it.
Not sure I would bother with it but since I've never seen one, I thought I would ask here what it was. Thanks a bunch..........john

Nozzle was made by Speed Trim in the mid 70's thru early 80's. Before Place Diverter current version of an insert. Alot of them were sold in the day.

Id's varied between 3.187 to 3.000, some were angle cut to 5* to adjust trim up and down by manually rotating the nozzle. Some were machined to customer's specs.

Mounting was simple by drilling two .250 dia holes in the steering nozzle, clamping the nozzle in place. Anybody that knows how to use a hand drill could install this.

Speed Trim is out of bussiness.
