Altitude Limit Switch SA-1A/ARN-1 110FB/386 50-300 Feet Grumman TBF Avenger RAF Vintage Aircraft Spare.
These altitude limit switches were part of a system of altitude holding for low level flight and attack. These were found on almost all aircraft types and have been seen by ourselves on the Gloster Meteor, de Havilland Vampire, Handley Page Victor, English Electric Canberra to name but a few.This particular one however shows US Navy markings so it quite possibly from British Royal Navy Fleet Air Arm acquisitions of the iconic American torpedo bomber the Grumman Avenger under the US Mutual Defense Assistance Program.
Unknown if used but unable to test so listed as parts to be safe. Switch moves well.. This has been in storage for many years so may show some minor surface oxidation. Sold untested for display only and "as is".
Great item for display or as part of a steampunk / aviation themed project.
Always willing to combine postage. International enquires welcomed, ask for postage quotes.
