DC-9 A&P Help Needed

Tue Dec 17, 2002 1:38 pm

I need help from a DC-9 classic A&P. I need help identifying some DC-9 parts I found at an old crash site. A few parts have numbers on them. These numbers may be partial, as the pieces are bent and cracked and have faded.



Part #1: 5910537 aluminum sheet metal

Part #2: 9467-509 A aluminum sheet metal

Part #3: 5915112-13 aluminum sheet metal

Part #4: 449416 B Underneath that is written 3788; silver in color; squashed; was cylindrical; has grooves.

Part #5: metal rod with threaded ends. One end of rod near threads has written: 1/2...16...A.I.M. Writing appears around the rod/tube.



I found many more pieces, but none with part numbers.


I'll e-mail pictures if that would help identification. Thanks.

One more piece I forgot to add is a rather skinny pice of aluminum with two fasteners through it. It contains a circle with the following writing inside it : X 638

Is it a current investigation? You should turn all the pieces to the NTSB if you haven't already.
At worst, you screw up and die.

No, the investigation was concluded years ago.

UAL Bagsmasher: The first number appears to be from a n emergency exit door frame. The third number may be from a heat exchanger clamp. The fourth number may be an oil transfer tube. Hard to say for sure due to the various types of DC-9's, and the possibility of partial numbers. Regards,

I would have to say that 747TEACH went to a DC-9 IPC (illustrated parts catalog). In the front of the first book there is something known as the numerical index. All part numbers are listed in numerical order. It then tells you which chapter,section, drawing number, page number, and finally which item number your part is shown as. That is IF your part is listed. You'd be surprised how many aren't listed.
10,000 years ago we would have eaten you. Today, we drag you along and allow you to pollute the gene pool.

Just out of curiosity, which DC-9 crash site did you visit? MKE?

BTW, hope you folks all hang in up there...

Hey thanks for the kind words. Nah, I visited the Allegheny DC-9 vs. Cherokee site in Indiana from 1969. Is there anything left of the YX DC-9 in MKE?

UALbagsmasher:
Our IPC is online, so its just a matter of typing in the numbers. The reply comes with a short description. Tried some of your other numbers, and other combinations, and couldn't get anything to work. The number inside the circle could be an inspection stamp. Regards,
