    Part number 29A3251 what is it?
    Part found at a WWII Navy dump site. Found several of these.
    most likely from SB2C, TBM, PB4Y, PBM aircraft
    One guess is that it is the stand off for 5" rocket rails

    I checked the prefix list, this part number does not match anything possible on the list. There were no other markings on the part.

    Dave-
    P/N 29F4824 is the Navy p/n for a Consolidated tail turret that was used on B-24s as the AAF type A-6. The 29+ part numbers may be for the PB4Y-1.

    Regards,
    Bob

    part numbers for PB4Y Consolidated 100-
    I did find the Hydraulic Reservoir for Consolidated or Motor Products Corporation Hydraulic Turret, used on PB4Y aircraft has two part numbers Assembly #s 32F30828, AND 29F1505-6
    It is unusual for one part to have two part numbers. This is a clue that the unknown part is related to the gun turret in some way. Thanks for the post.

    If it helps, the Consolidated Model 29 was the PB2Y Coronado, and the Model 32 was the B-24 and all variants except the PB4Y-2 and R2Y-1.

    Thats it! 29- part numbers are from the PB2Y Coronado. Thanks for the info, you just solved a mystery for me. I have several parts from a PB2Y Coronado.

    Good for you Dave! Have to admit I thought you were right in saying they were rocket stand offs.

    Great help here Bob!
