                                     Spitfire instrument panels by Herbert Puuka

 

Differences between the Mk versions of Merlin-powered Spitfires:

 

Mk I

Early oxygen regulator

hole for landing light

Gunsight and generator switch

One starter button

Fuel pressure gauge or warning lamp with adapter plate

Round temperature gauges

One or two round fuel gauges

 

Mk II

Early oxygen regulator

hole for landing light

Gunsight and generator switch

One starter button

Fuel pressure gauge or warning lamp with adapter plate

Round temperature gauges

Round fuel gauge

Hole for cardridge starter handle

 

Mk V

Early oxygen regulator

With or without hole for landing light

Gunsight switch

Two starter buttons

Fuel pressure gauge or lamp

Round temperature gauges

Round fuel gauge

 

Mk IX

Early or late oxygen regulator

Two starter buttons

Supercharger panel

Fuel pressure warning lamp

Round or rectangle temperature gauges

Round or rectangle fuel gauges

 

Conclusion:

After some time of research and collecting cockpit pictures I discovered, that the Mk V panels introduced the boost coil switch

and the hole for the cartridge starter handle disappeared. Together with the two-speed supercharger engines appeared the

supercharger panel of the Mk. IX and later Mks. The generator switch disappeared with Mk V, the gunsight switch with

 Mk IX. I seem to have no picture of a metal panel so the change to Paxoline panels took place very early.

Voltage information supplied by Spitfire Spares member Dave. Instrument voltage is generally marked on the case and this info will be invaluable when identifying instrument use.

Supermarrine Spitfire part Numbers.

Spitfire part numbers are 7 digit numbers always starting with 3. The first 3 digits tells you the Mk of aircraft 1e 300 =Mk 1 although the number was only changed if the part was modified. Therefore you still get 300 part numbers on later aircraft. The second set of digits relates to the type of part i.e. airframe, fuel ect. The last 2 digits are the actual part number, relating to that individual part. This only applies to Supermarrine (Spitfire only) parts. The Spitfire is also full of hundreds of standard air ministry parts which don't carry the 300 numbers, all the instruments are A/M parts except the trim gauge which carry's a 300 part number, this explains why its so rare because it was ONLY used in Spits.

Example 300 45 **

300 = Mk1 Spitfire

45 =Petrol Tanks

**= Individual part number

This is a part I dug up at my airfield. I found lots of these parts and did not have a clue what they were until one day I found one with a bung in it and the magic Spitfire number.

3006580

According to the parts list its an original Mk1 part i.e. 300( could be fitted to any Mk if this part was not modified). The 65 means it was petrol tank auxiliary. 80 is the part number. My guess is this is a drop tank part. This would tie in nicely with Culmhead as allot of Spitfires operated with drop tanks from this field. On D-Day Seafires fitted with drop tanks escorted Typhoons on ground attack missions.

Sdr Ldr Glaser DFC mentioned earlier in the reference section was training with drop tanks at Culmhead.

 Allot of the missions flown from Culmhead would have required the use of drop tanks.

Control Grip info by Herbert Puukka

A.P.1086, Part 11E lists the following "ring control handles" for the Spitfire:
AH2174 for Spitfire IA, IIA, VA
AH8068 for Seafire, Spitfire IB, IIB, VB, VC, F.VI, VII, VIII, FIX, FXII, FXXI
 

AH2174 Spitfire IA, IIA, VA

AH8068 Seafire, Spitfire IB, IIB, VB, VC, FVI, VII, VIII, FIX, FXII, FXXI

AH2040 with brake lever: Hurricane, Battle, Fulmar, Lysander I and II, Skua, Swordfish and Whirlwind.

AH2242 Harvard I and II

AH8272 Firefly, Firebrand and Sea Hornet

The AH References are Dunlop's own and they are usually to be found stamped onto the lower portion of the grip. The first listed one is for the classic round, pneumatic gun firing button, the latter is for the selective twin pneumatic switch.

If it is Spitfire it will have a brake lever on the back. No lever or mounting pin then again most probably a Canadian Harvard that had toe brakes.

Hurricane grips should have the pipe work external to the grip, i.e. it doesn't go through the hole in the top of the control column.

A proper grip for the Harvard I and II should be stamped AH2242, a proper Hurricane, AH2040.

For the record, AH2040 also "fits" the Battle, Fulmar, Lysander I and II, Skua, Swordfish and Whirlwind
