    Hello,

    a friend of mine gave me some parts yesterday. They all belonged to the B-17G.
    Could anyone help me with their identification please?

    Part1:
    Just my 2 cents but it might be a part of some moving part, either from the wing or tail section.
    -1690
    ALCOA
    220804 G


    Thank you very much in advance!

    Hi Roman -

    The stamp with the "ANA" is actually a "North American Aircraft" (NAA) inspection stamp. Are you sure this item is from a B-17 wreck? It might be possible that NAA built this component as a sub-tier to Boeing, Lockheed or Douglas.

    That part is actually off a Mustang Seesul! I would be delighted to fit it on my Mustang 'Damm Yankee'!!

    Part number 109-334040 is the hydraulic parking brake compensator that goes on the firewall.....

    As I said, nothing is 100% sure8). I´ll speak to the guy who gave it to me. Should he want it back as it is from P-51, he will get it. If not, it´s yours. But no promise, as I said, I gotta ask my friend first.
