I've had it for years and never used it...
Think I got it with some automotive tune up tools I bought...
Long time ago...

Unless someone else is wiser...
You Got It.

Here is the link to repair parts for Sun Electric tools and they show the exact tool you have. They only offer the replacement lens.

Here is a link explaining how it works, although the gauge in this link is from another mfg

The spanner, well you can use it to adjust a locking ring/collar etc.
I haven't got a clue how any of that stuff relates to Troy Bilt.

Hey, use the spring pull guage on triggers. Sell it to a gunsmith.

Yeah...that's what's puzzling me...
When I got them...they were all in the same bag....
Figured they were from the 80s...
Maybe the Dutch man will recognize them....

It would be an excellent tool for setting the spring on a trigger....

Not much help here, Slapper. If I had to guess, it's stuff from the Garden Way era of TroyBilt, prior to MTD takeover. Can't imagine MTD producing any special tooling for equipment requiring only a big hammer and crowbar. I had a complete owner's/repair manual with complete parts list from a Garden Way TroyBilt Horse I bought at a farm sale in 74--don't recall ever noticing any of those tools in the manual/parts list.
