Hi have dug this out of a box of bits I was given years ago, I think it is a fuel pump, a bit like a Perry Pump, does any one know if I can put petrol through it

It could be neither Bert,  and maybe an air pump

Also, if years old, the rubber vanes could be perished

You could gently suck and blow on each inlet - the results may give an indication of function...

My money is still on an air/hydraulic converter - there would be a diaphragm between the air inlet and oil side which transfers pressure. I have a similar looking one but it only uses a single nipple at each end.

I'm not - although it's not beyond the bounds of possibility.

This should explain:
