Re: Unknown device

Sorry for the possible wrong technical term, but it may be a rocket from a radial engine.
The ones from BMW 801 seem shorter.
At least, it lacks a scale !!!

Re: Unknown device

Many thx for your interest!

I was too late aware re the scale.
Here the complete foto, including a MG- cartridge for scale.
Sorry to say that I do not know what a rocker is .
Not a motor biker.
Evidently from an US-engine, as mentioned also in BMW engines?

Hope the new for helps.

Re: Unknown device

The proper term would be "lifter". No idea for which engine.

Re: Unknown device

It rocks or, better, it rolls! Roller I mean (galet in French).

Re: Unknown device

Here are some similar looking parts for a Lycoming engine.

https://www.lycoming.com/parts/tappets

If you measure the diameter and thickness of the roller exactly in both metric and inches it may be possible to decide if the part is for a German or Allied plane. Some other measurements that might reveal something would be the diameter of the pin through the roller and the diameter and length of the shaft.

Re: Unknown device

Thank you all for your replies.
Finally I have an imagination what tappet and or rocker means.
I can take the measures in a few days and I wonder what engine it can be asigned to.
German and USAAF crashed planes are close together in the Tyrol. on 3rd Aug. 1944.

Re: Unknown device

Hello All,

I was able to measure the item now.
I hope it helps and it is enough. Did not weigh it.
There is not one number (sign) on the item ingraved, which would mostly be on US parts.
Anyway, I will be glad about a solution.

Do you think it would be necessary (adventageous) publishing this request on German Luftwaffe discussion board too ?

Thy for your great effort.
Best

Re: Unknown device

Hi

I would suggest you try to find people knowledgable about Warbirds. The Flypast and the WIX boards are good places
