Can anyone help ID the following seat mounts. I think the one with the handle is Meteor ? The following markings can be seen W107, W32217, W32184, X32213 The other mount with the thinner prong like arms is marked 12WF3 406 FJB 12W1? 29/30 R2R. Wouldn't surprise me if its from a tractor !!

Part No. Starting 12WF*** and 12W***** can be found in the sea venom parts manual so may I suggest Venom? probably relating to wing related parts if they are.

W32217 is a part number for a Meteor T7. Unfortunately can’t find any of the other part numbers in the T7 schedule of Spare Parts. Don’t have a Vol 3 for earlier marks of Meteor though.

W32217 is, as MDF says, Meteor T/NF seat mount parts. I have it as: 26EH/1957, LEVER ASSEMBLY, W32217 in the T.7 spares catalogue. Can fit either front or rear seat. It'll be labelled Hurricane as, apart from one bracket, the seat is identical to the Hurricane seat.It is for this reason that many NF/T Meteors are bereft of their seats. It makes those who know their stuff quite angry when one of these seats comes up for sale at Hurricane money... Anyway, yes, it looks like you have 1 1/2 seat mounts for Meteors, and an unknown there.

Interestingly this is a subject I have recently been looking into, needing a Hurricane raising leaver for BW853, the Hurricane leaver assembly is cranked before the comb adjuster and is a riveted construction, where as the Meteor is straighter and a welded construction. seems to be lots of Meteor combinations about but no Hurricane.............unless anyone knows differently? jules

You'll find, and there were 2 at least on a Facebook aviation trading page recently, a lot of Meteor seats and accompanying fittings being passed off as Hurricane items, and offered for sale with appropriately inflated price tags. Shame, as I can think of at least 2 Meatbox projects desparately hunting seats.

The part marked 12W is nothing to do with seats - its the jointing tube between the flaps on a Venom.
