    Mystery Torque Plate

    I got a good deal on this torque plate on eBay. Can anyone tell from its shape what "flavor" it is? Torx? Rad4? Some other variant?

    It's solid aluminum, and is not coated. There's are a few remnant bits of The Right Stuff on it, but I've been pulling them off easily. Was planning on cleaning it up a bit with a soft Dremel wheel and installing it this winter. Just hoping to properly ID it for my sig.

    Looks like someone made it themselves? Definitely not a Rad4

    A Rad4 will be hard anodized to prevent corrosion.

    Whoever did it, did so with a waterjet...I hope they got the ports matched up right, I see a lot of deflection in the corner from the water/sand...

    Definitely cut on a water jet. If a 5 axis machine wasn't used, there will be a noticeable amount of taper in those ports-holes. Looks like a pretty crappy piece to me... hope you got it cheap!

    It only cost me $40 including shipping, so I figured it was worth a gamble. I'll definitely check the fit of the ports way before I fire up the engine with it installed, and yank it if it's not flush. Seller reported it was in his boat for 20 hours, and he's now parting out his boat.
