To me it looks like some kind of high voltage capacitor.
What did you use to check for capacitance? The capacitance value
could be very low. It might be outside of the range of the device
you used to determine if it was a capacitor.
I don't believe it is a feed through. One end has a connector
designed for very high voltage and the other has a simple wire
with simple connector as though one end is ment to be
attatched to a ground. Someone mentioned that the flanges look
as though the holes are the same and that there may have been
a toroid on both ends at one time. If so, and both ends were ment
for a high voltage connection, why are the connection points
It doesn't appear to be a connection terminal for a transformer
or a large oil filled capacitor either.
I think it is a capacitor, and if your measureing device
is capable of measuring pico farads, it may be blown open.
