    This is likely a landing gear motor, there was one for each main landing gear. Some Sterling's had them located in the nacelle, later versions in the fuselage.

    Hope this helps

    Most welcome!

    I should add that its a motor and gearbox assembly. You can just make out the universal drive at the bottom of the assembly.
