And don't chew it. :D

I suspect that the centre two bits are from a tractor, possible a battery. ::g

Asbestos. =. Cancer. Wrap well and get rid.

The other two bigger items look like pipe connectors. Probably off an old tractor.

As a newbie you are right to ask about anything you don't recognise. The dreaded asbestos sheet being a case in point. I find lots of it on sites where old farm buildings have been as it was a popular roofing material back in the day.
It is a steep learning curve when you first start finding stuff. One day I have no doubt you will post something that you expect to be ID'd as a part of a tractor but turns out to be something very old and exciting.
In the meantime, the more time you spend browsing various online finds databases the better. It all helps you to familiarise yourself with the various artifacts and partifacts that come up.

Speaking of asbestos...does anyone else remember those mesh tripods for bunsen burners in Chemistry lessons back in the day? They had a coating of asbestos between the mesh on the top. I remember when we were bored (which was frequently with our chem teacher) we used to poke bits through the mess with our pens. :E When were not setting fire to little trails of ethanol that is.

With asbestos skips now costing around £1000.00 each many farmers just dug a large hole and buried it. Of course that would not happen now lol

I can assume you’re kidding. Money is money and where it can be saved they will still do it.

Muhamed has a treat in store. Wait till you find a tip corner in a field. Lots of them around old ones, of course. I swear they buried the old tractors. Either that or they dumped them and left them to disintegrate and bury themselves.
Can’t avoid them though. Many a good find come from a tip corner. ::g
