Parts and Tools for Bofors 40mm gun M1, Carriage M3
x4 Hand operating crank, handle. We are creating replicas, but we would like at least one real example.
x2 Rear shield assembly, C95025
x1 Rod spring, B198369. Manual says free length 9-1/4" to 9-3/4", 209 to 297 lb at 6-1/8". We measured from the existing (degraded) parts, .70" O.D., to fit on .379 shaft, 7.5" long. The specs. from the manual are not consistent with normal spring steel, we are looking for a real drawing.
We are creating replicas of common Army and Navy sights for the guns on the boat because we have examples and documentation to work with. What we really need are x4 of the sights shown in this photo from 1945. Or at least examples and/or drawings of this style sight that we can borrow to replicate.
x3 Seat Adjustment Screw and Handle
x2 Seats, we recovered the seat post and adjustment pieces.
x1 Bottom cover, or even just the handle and lever underneath.
x1 Shell pusher. This is 26-1/2" end to end. c95031 or 41-P-5300
x1 Barrel Carrier. 41-C-430, or 41-C-435
Recoil spring compressor. 41-c-467-75, 41-C-2555-800
It would really help if we could find parts drawings for the Army M3 mount.
