On my Model A there is a strange bulb on the front cover plate which seems to have no purpose. It can be seen in the attached picture. Does anybody know what this is for?

Are you describing the item in this attached pic?

If so, it's the original timing pin for the engine. Remove it, reverse it in the hole, and rotate the engine to TDC... When at TDC, the pin will slip deeper int the cover, as it engages a hole in the cam.

Be SURE to remove and tighten.
