Sperry Lower BALL TURRET

Essentially the complete Propulsion Unit with any of the various Hand Control Units and suitable for all Sperry Lower Ball Turrets used in the B-17 Flying Fortress, B-24 Liberator & B-32 Dominator.

NOTE: Image above provided for display purposes only. Complete Unit was disassembled decades ago for ease of storage. All components have been stored indoors since they were removed from Kingman Bombers after WWII and have never seen civilian use. In the early 80s, each Vickers unit was filled with correct hydraulic fluid and run-up with 24 volts applied to the electric motor, then drained again before storage.
