It's the periscope for the gArfish's Ribba flikkin machine or a snorkel for the airfilter. It's designed to stop the desert sands of Northumbria from getting into the air supply to the engine. it also works fairly well under water.

I do like the idea of the pre heater this Southern wuss would like one

Got them pre-heaters on both my Landies too....it all adds up to a very smug expression, when you go out to your nicely warmed motor with ice on everyone elses....
