    I believe the F in 58F may refer to the flexible hose on this can. There is another version called the Eagle No 58 that is the same but has a solid hose.
    OK that is all I know about this piece.
    It may have been made last Tuesday but it does have a vintage look. At some point it was painted blue but most of the blue paint has worn off. When I was a kid I would paint a toy or two for no reason other than just to paint it.
    Picked this for $5 at a local antique faire. It is probably worth at least $6.

      For yrs., the newer ones are crap. They hold no pressure.
    7. fortapache fortapache, 2 years ago
      Thank you very much blunderbuss2. That's why I didn't buy a new one.
    8. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 2 years ago
      I use mine to bleed brakes etc. from the bottom because it is done 1st time without all that pumping to get air out of the lines. New ones don't put out enough pressure to do that. Not even close !

      bb2 I am no longer allowed to work on my own car, I don't think I would know how. I haven't even opened the hood of my car even to add blinker fluid.

      Look under the hood & you might not be able to sleep for several nites. I was referring to simpler machines to work on. Like aircraft .

      bb2 even computers are easier to work on a car now. Who would have thought.
    15. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 2 years ago
      Yeah, wasn't it a great idea to put all these gadgets(half never used) & sensors in a vehicle & tie them all together by computers in a way that when one thing craps out, it affects everything. And humans are supposed to be able to reason. Brings to mind that description of a camel: An assortment of mismatching parts assembled to make a distressing whole.

      Speaking of working on new cars...I almost fell and broke my neck when I was changing out my blinker fluid. I slipped on the handful of muffler bearings that fell out on the ground after opening up the kniffel rod shielding to get to the reservoir (bad design). I think it was well worth it though as I increased my gross power output by .003 gigacalories per hour. The only drawback is that I'm now required to wear a helmet.
    17. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 2 years ago
      Bucket, it sounds like you would be well advised to wear a helmet at all times. LOL ! "Blinker" fluid ? "Muffler bearings ? "Kniffel"? I think maybe you have the manual upside down. LOL !!!
    18. buckethead, 2 years ago
      bb2, I've tried to wearing a helmet all the time but can hardly breathe and can't see since they put some sort of adjustable strap for the back of your neck on those darn things. BTW... these Eaglets are great for oiling the turbo encabulator on your vehicle as shown on this video.

      Great video buckethead. The comments are some of the best I have seen. I have had issues with magno reluctance myself.

      Saw that spiel a yr or so back, but it was good to see it again. Communications with SXM are beginning to open up & keeping me busy trying to formulate Plan C for going home & doesn't look like for another couple of months.
