Fuel filter
MrGoodtunes
Besides being good looking, it lets you see alot: Whether you have fuel or not, whether the filter element is dirty and needs replacing, and if install'd at a little angle, fuel surface level gives helpful clues.

Flywheel (with bad teeth)
MrGoodtunes
This is what happens to a 109-tooth 6volt flywheel after about 20 years of using a 6-volt starter with a 6-volt solenoid in a 12-volt system. (To avoid this, use a 12-volt solenoid.)
