WWII Sutton Harness Release Gear Assembly. Spitfire, Typhoon etc
Here we have an original Sutton Harness Release Gear Assembly as fitted to WWII Aircraft such as the Typhoon and later Spitfires.
This item occasionally comes in stock and is normally sold direct to Spitfire restoration companies. However we have been able to obtain several examples which allow us to offer these to private individuals.
Although these are new old stock items they have not been stored correctly and as such the condition of the cables vary. In some cases the outer casing has rotted away and there are signs of rust penetration. These units have not been tested and are therefore sold as static only items. They would obviously required a proper inspection and over haul by a suitably qualified person before been considered for actual use.
