    I found this over at the LEMB board and posted it here. Thought maybe a few people would be interested in it.

    If Micdrow can scan the descriptions for the part numbers, I should be able to translte them for you.

    Great info there, Micdrow BTW! Thanks! :D

    I checked out Micdrow's site, Wilbur, and apparently the nozzles are for de-icing the propeller blades.
    The nozzles are straight valves which are connected to a glycol tank placed directly behind the propeller (in the forward engine nacelle as far as I understood it).
    The fluid isn't pumped, but fed via a valve and sprayed by centrifugel force directly onto the propeller blades.


    Thanks for the link Micdrow, looks like a ton of info in there!
