Name That Part – fffffffuuuuuuuuuuuu Edition

In our last Name That Part, BeerRover managed to get it right as a Jag XK120 battery cover. Well done.
The “fffffffuuuuuuuuuuuu” meme, aka “ragefu” or “rage guy” has been around since about 2008, spawned in the primordial ooze of the 4chan swamps and currently thriving on reddit. The meme revolves around something unexpected and unfortunate happening to the main character, at which point the poorly drawn angry face closes out the fourth panel.  Typically the misery comes when something good is expected, but turns out to be problematic.
As is the case with internet memes, it’s expanded to incorporate some variations, including “everything went better than expected” “close enough” and “f*ck yea“. Given the simple nature of the art involved, one can quickly and easily produce a rage comic using only MS Paint, or for the truly lazy, one can use this Java-based rage comic generator.
What does this have to do with today’s Part in Need of a Name? That’s for you to figure out. Jump.

Nice Try
Ok, so there are two…

Maybe it should’ve been “Name These Parts”, but whatever.

    .38 cal wad-cutter bullet & pistol clip feed spring from a Smith & Wesson.
    Car parts you say? Head to South Central LA & find a car without 'em, says I

      The exact shape, but a little short to be a magazine spring. Unless it is from a really small auto like a .380 or .25.

        There you go taking my smart-aleky response and trying to be all accurate and stuff. Sheesh!

    It's a shifter detent. It makes you go ffffuuuuuuu- when it goes >sprong!< and flies across the garage as you disassemble the gearbox.
    What's it from? Don't have a clue.

    Any time a tenuous connection to an NSX is claimed, there should be a reward. Bonus points for sexy photos.

      Thanks. That is why I show up to these things.

    A spring return system for a 1965 Ford kanuter valve.

      I would have bet money that it was the Pfetzer bypass valve and spring from a Mohs Safarikar.

    Prototype for an early military version of the Slinky, alongside the standard shell casing it could fire.

    Alternator brush and tensioning spring from a Falcon, LTD wagon, Jeep, WRX or a be-winged BMW 6-series.

      Falcon has a generator.

    That sinister looking, chewed-up pellet looks kinda like a parking brake retention pin. I'm just stabbing at the likelihood of that spring being one that refuses to be retained. I have my own dark, dark memory of having this assembly fall apart on me in a late 70s Audi, never to be properly reassembled ever, ever again. It was like the unfurling of some evil plan from the fourth ring of Ingolstadt. The horror!

    It's hard to tell scale from the picture, and I'm sure you planned it that way, You Bastard. But in a nice way.
    It looks like maybe a spring and detent from a transmission, but which one I have no clue.

    A slave pin/spring from unilateral phase detractor in an early 90s Chrysler Turbo Encabulator.[youtube MXW0bx_Ooq4&feature=related youtube]

    +1 for delving as deeply into the obscure car pile as humanly possible.

      Hell, I thought he was taking the piss until I Googled it…

        The car, it seems is real. The part, however, exists only in the Hooniverse. (Google it, you'll see!)

    Something to do with the adjuster on drum brakes. That's about all I got.

    It’s funny to find out just how many blogs the internet has about this subject! I don’t know if I’m ever going to need to be back, but it’s awesome to know I stumbled upon the one that has a lot of valuable info if this ever comes up for me another time.

    I had a few viewing the website in Firefox on the Mac, but I still loved the post!

    Excellent read, I just passed this onto a colleague who was doing a little research on that. And he actually bought me lunch because I found it for him smile So let me rephrase that: Thanks for lunch!

    Pay per click isn’t for the uninitiated. I wasted a lot of cash on adwords as I had no inkling what I was doing in the case of key phrases and bidding. I went through $50 voucher in an afternoon or two. Anyway – great blog I will bookmark and come again. Thanks
