Both. I know the answer, but I am asking others that don't know to think about it and guess.

Nothing special underneath, neither the bolt nor the threaded rod have any function on the other side.

Is it an improvised puller to remove a damaged layshaft bearing outer race from the timing side case?I could have used something like that a few years back.It looks as if the screw on the edge is to expand the circular bit once it is placed inside the bearing ring.

Very close. In a sense it is a 'puller' but not exactly, and the purpose of the offset bolt is to expand the circle.

Expanding the device makes the bearing (if that`s what it`s for ) tighter in the housing. Therefore harder to extract.
