Tool identification help, please

Greetings, all.

John Bolender, a beloved and charter member of Corvairs Northwest, created the following tool (or tools) and gave them to the club a few years ago. Problem is--we don't remember what they are for, and very sadly, John died recently.

The small clear circular item in the center of the larger piece appears to be like a bubble on a level.

Would appreciate help figuring out the purpose of these items.

Thanks!

Flywheel balancing jig?

The upright fixture is definitely for balancing.

The first one after it is leveled might be used to balance a crankshaft. I'd check and see if the journal spacing matches.

Attach flywheel to the cylinder and place on top of the fixture to balance.

Hi--thanks to Tom, Rex, and Craig for the responses. I called Rex and gave him some dimensions. We're now sure that it is indeed a fixture for balancing flywheels.
