How many head nuts does it have?
The tin is a drip tray.

Yes well what you can do is fit some 1/4 copper pipe to the 1/8th fitting in this drip tray and run any fuel spills elsewhere .............I have an idea that the bronze gauze was an anti fire precaution, not a bad idea if you get a leaking carb and a bilge with fuel in it.
