    Parts ID help needed. Mossie ??

    Can any one help with identifying the following parts.
    The first is stamped with the numbers 9838r199A and also F7

    The second item has 98/38/S575 stamped on one of the black handles and also has ?838s299 and ?838S300. Also has a circle with what looks like an MA 266 stamp

    I'm assuming Mossie because of the 98 ?

    Your second item is definitely Mosquito - its a sealing plate between the wing and fuselage.

    The first item is odd - Mossie part numbers always start with a letter, and then '98xxxx'.This doesn't.

    However, the hydraulic valve is of the type used in a number of de Havilland designs, notably the Vampire/Venom series, so it might be.

    The Hydraulic unit appears to have a small 'o' before the number 8. Its like the top half of an incomplete number 9.All the parts came from the same source/location

    FB,
    The hydraulic part stamped F7 and 983xxx may be Meteor, I have seen the F7 on Meteor parts before and have been tricked by the 983xxx prefix before !

    The seat looks like it has bona fide Mosquito part numbers, eg alpha before 98, S98xxxx, but I can't place it. At first I thought it was the co-pilot seat on a Mosquito trainer but the frame for this is far less robust. I can't match S981002 to any vocab of spares. About the only weird thing I can guess at is seat installed in bomb bay for uncomfortable passenger in BOAC Mosquito travelling from Sweden. If such a seat was attached to the forward bulkhead in the bomb bay, with passengers back against the bulkhead, this would make sense. Still a guess though.

    It is a T3 seat. There may have been different variants, so different levels of 'robustness' as it were, but it is definitely a Mossie seat. Good finds...

    Here's an Australian T43 co-pilot seat, pan is the same but sub frame a bit different - seat flicks up like old cinema seat to allow pilot access.

    More bits. Although I suspect some are Vampire ??

    Round green disc appears to be an inspection plate. Stamped Z985741 but has writing on the other side stating S983974 approximately 11 inches in diameter
    The black control cable wheel is marked K0062 4, grooved on the outer edge to take a cable. Measures 9 inches in diameter.
    Radar control panel. The placards state 'Power Supply' 'Rebecca' 'Gee' . part number on the side of the unit is 98/34N394. What instrument would have been fitted in this panel?

    Another part number is L985104. Part of a large aluminium bracket. Will post a photo later
    Is there such a thing as a Mossie parts manual. I know drawings are an issue but wondered if parts manuals are out there?

    Yes, the control wheel is Vampire. The circular panel is a fuselage cover plate; covers over one of the camera positions I think. The instrument in the 'GEE' panel would have likely been one of the L/R beam indicators.

    There are parts manuals around, yes.

    Thanks for the reply. Is the Instrument panel Vampire or Mossie. I'm thinking Vampire?
    The last item as per the photo is some sort of support bracket. The only place I have found a part number is on the same triangular plate at the top,not on the main body itself. The number on the plate is L985104.
    I will have to find a parts list !

    That's an oil tank support bracket. The priming pump also fits through it

    Panel is more likely to be Mosquito.

    Where have you been hunting?

    Hi Powerandpassion, FYI that T-43 seat is on backwards. The front should drop down

    Cheers

    Here are some more items
    The arched item appears to be a bracing arch for the bomb bay for 4,000 lb bombs.
    Obviously there is a throttle box.
    The large item to the left appears to be some sort of rib for the bomb bay doors?
    No idea on the stand. Its too frail for anyone to sit on so I assume its for some sort of equipment stand which would be in the rear compartment behind the pilot ?
    The silver hinge thing has a part number of J9822
    The other silver coloured L profile piece has a part number of S982582
    The access plate with the wood attached has a part number of S982599A

    More to come when I can find time to clean and photo

    The big, green angular thing on the left of the first picture a couple of posts up is a bomb door stiffener - for 4000lb extended bomb doors.

    This item is intriguing. It has a part number of S982599A
    As you can see from the photo the wood hasn't been snapped at the end it appears to be as it was made. Not sure how this would quite fit in on the aircraft ?

    Does the letter that appears before the number 98 actually relate to any in specific. i.e does it identify what part of the aircraft the part comes from such as electrical. undercarriage, tail plane etc. Surely they wouldn't just randomly select a letter for ID purposes ?
    If the number does relate to specific part of the aircraft, has anyone got the code list

    More Mossie parts again.
    Obviously another seat and then a large item which I initially thought was some sort ammo chute. However the parts numbers are R9888, R9888A and R98110 which would indicate something to do with the Radio ?? Any ideas what it actually is and its function ?
    Haven't managed to clean the other bits yet

    Flying blind - its part of the cockpit heater system. It goes behind the heater radiator on the wing, and the little door on the side can be opened to allow warm air into the cockpit. You also have a set of control locks there.

    More Mossie parts I've come across. The chassis lever plate cover is self explanatory but Im not sure about the other item.
    Clearly its a hinge bracket/arm but I don't know to what. I thought it may be bomb bay door but it doesn't seem to have the correct curvature The part number is B984669.
    Any ideas??
    I may be getting carried away, but has anyone got a template or plan for the left hand instrument for a Mossie?
