    The two upper right are mechanical fuel pumps that operated from a cam in the engine, the rest are called 'settlement bowls' they were used in the days before in-line filters, the fuel would flow through these and any contaminates would fall into the bowl for removal later, it was part of routine service for cars until the late 50's at least maybe later.
