      Take to your local starter rebuilder and he will match it.

        Thank you Eddie & Charles.

        It's the RAF attachment HOUSING for the Bendix he needs to find as it's cracked.
        I'll call Tommy as he may know where to get the housing... Good idea!

          Its just a piece of aluminium tubing that is machined ,probably would be rather easy to make,or have a machine shop do it for you

          at a low price.

              I am not sure if those housing are the same on the RAF, Sparrowhawk or Air Command.
              Beware of advise to take your Bendix to a shop and have it matched. The internals are different and some similar looking Bendix drives work in the opposite direction. Gyro Bendix drives have the detent internals removed to allow for disengagement without overrunning by the rotor.

                Thank you Tommy!!!

                The Bendix is OK, we think, but it came with 3 Bendix heads and they are all cracked. He's having a few made out of a new light weight steel.

                If we need a Bexdix can you help me?

                  How do you crack a round Bendix housing there is no torque on the housing just the bracket mounting the housing,the flex shaft,and the Bendix.

                  Perhaps when you tip it over the housing gets damaged.
