I need some help with numbers 3231, 3233, and 3234 this week:
3230 is a six gallon jug. Probably for transferring milk to the urn.
Posting from my desk top PC in the living room, as always.
3229, tamping tool for a Jack and the Beanstalk
size tobacco pipe.
3230 milk can from a dairy.
3231, no clue.
3232, maybe for some kind of flower?
3233, no clue.
3234, would make a good seed planter.
3230 Milk transport jug
3231 Automatic brake adjustment lever that fits on the bottom between
the two brake shoes on the early to mid 70"s Chevrolet Vega and Monza,
Olds StafFire, Buick Skyhawk, and Pontiac Astre?
Can't tell you how many of these I have replaced. Replacement was
necessary as the unit would not collapse when installing new brake
shoes, it would only expand with each application of the parking brake
lever. Actually there was a tool to collapse the internal "one way"
piece but the tool was more expensive than the part and therefore more
You may not find a match, it was unique to the a few GM vehicles in the
70's maybe into the early 80's. I looked at a few nation auto parts

I think this is probably correct, the closest that I could find online are the
cans on this page:
I'll take yours and Leon's word on this one.
Sounds possible, I'm still not sure about this item.
Changed a bunch of them myself. They "worked" but getting them to
retract when they rusted was almost impossible.
Here is a mitchell page showing them.
Yeah, I kind of agree with this comment, I don't think it's for milk.
Long, long, long time ago an aunt had a dairy farm up in Wisconsin and
besides a lid (needed to keep the flies out), the handle for them were on
either side of the opening, two, not one across like the one in the picture.
Thanks! That really nails this one down, I'll send your link to the owner.
Still no solid answers for the last two in this set but the rest have been
Tell the owner of 3231 that if they have no use for it (or any others
they have or Vega parts in general) to go to http://forums.h-body.org/
and mention that they have them.
They are VERY RARE parts and are wanted by folks who restore the cars.
