There are several items under the frame that I have little idea of what they are. Can any of you experts explain what they are and their purpose?

One is a large cylinder abeam the anti-torque mounts - and to their left - securing the torque tube to a frame crossmember. There is a hose leading from the aft face of this forward to what appears to be an engine-driven pump.

The second item(s) are three cylindrical objects installed in the left frame aft of the cylinder mentioned above and appear to be connected by a hose to the rear brakes.

Here's a photo of Louis Chernot's model which illustrates both unknown objects.

A brake booster, kind of early power brakes.

Thanks Andy,

Pete Kelly also responded and mentioned one item was a brake booster cylinder which I would think is possibly vacuum-operated off the engine intake manifold.

Pete said the other item(s) were triple Autopulse fuel pumps. I found an image online which allowed me to make these up in 1/18 scale.
