    Hi Jan,

    That's correct the P-39 and P-63 used the V-1710-E series engine, exchanging the integral reduction gear for an extension shaft driving a remotely located reduction gear and right handed tractor propeller. The plate could just as easily have come from a P-63 King Cobra as this was really a specific production design for the lend-lease programme.

    Regards, Ned.
