Rudder pedals?

Gents,

Here are a kind of rudder pedals. There is no toe brake control so only rudder control.
Width : 50 cm
dimension of pedal : 23/13 cm

Neither marking nor stamp, only on the cast, back of pedal : B203347 1 / B203347 11. Looks like US.
For a glider, turret or even a link trainer...???

Thanks beforehand of your attention.

Re: Rudder pedals?

Hello
,
Do you have any context informations (where and when was the part found...)?
The linkage seems "heavy duty", and is unusual for an airplane. I explored the helicopters trail, such a strong system could have been used for a dual rotor craft, but neither the Chinook nor the 50's Piasecki are matching.

Regards

Re: Rudder pedals?

It also appears that there isn't any type of "brake" function for these pedals.

Re: Rudder pedals?

Hello,

Alas, NO info's about origin, etc.
Indeed, it looks sturdy.
There is some trace of metal melt (crash?) and a rough strut was added.

Allez, another picture to help...

Re: Rudder pedals?

Hello

Since they are no braking functions present, the part can also come from a big seaplane. No match with Short (Sunderland) nor Grumman (Albatross) but a possible with Blohm und Voss (BV 138 ?). Would be my best guess...

Re: Rudder pedals?

Thank you Jean for your relentless search but the part seems US made, see the figures on the alloy cast pedal.
No other stamp/marking.
Indeed a puzzling item...

Best research.

Re: Rudder pedals?

Hello Clint

To narrow the nationality of the assembly, it is possible to make precise mesurements , (with a sliding caliper) of the bolt heads and nuts, ideally with paint removed ? Metric, Imperial and US (who are not the same as the Imperial) bolt heads differ slightly (some tenths of a millimeter) for the usual 6 and 8 mm bolts and their equivalents.

Regards
Jean
