    The Wittek clamp could have been used on P-38, B-17, or even a Packard built engine, P51...... I think?

    104 part number prefix, indicating P-51B.
    The full part number is 104 42058 36, and there's a nice ANA A23 inspection stamp on the other side.

    Seeing as the on-site Fighter Group had less than ten B-model Mustangs assigned to them in total, and one of those crashed on the airfield itself, there's only a small number of them that this part could have come from...

    More photos to follow when I've finished cleaning the rest of the bits, and when the cleaned blue WD poison bottle turns up again after vanishing sometime on Sunday afternoon.

    Thanks again to Steve for organising the dig,

    Nice PB. I have to admit, I've found a number of hinges on that dump but always discarded them as furniture fittings. How stupid do I feel now !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    In fact, that looks very similar to the one I inspected then chucked on to the top of the spoil heap

    DOH !

    I don't want to make you feel worse, but that hinge was being trampled into the mud by your good self as we were packing up to leave...
