I have eight of these carburetors currently for sale, which are crated & in inside storage down in Long Beach, Ca. Had ten, but just sold two on eBay for a modest price, and relisted two more (se eBay item #s- 1837313353 & 2113889956). These are circa-1953 zero-time/overhauled USN surplus, which were PBM-5 spares & kept in inside storage in their original crates since '53. Obviously, they'd need a fresh overhaul to replace the seals & go through bench-test to regain full-serviceability for installation as airworthy items. This model carb was used on P&W R-2800 radial engines, including R-2800-C, -18W, -42W, -22, -34 and -83WA for use on Chance-Vought F4U-1, AU-1, Grumman F7F, Grumman F8F-1 & Martin PBM-5. I believe the overhaul shops can upgrade this model to fit other R-2800 powered aircraft, such as DC-6, etc. Contact me (Don "Bucky" Dawson) directly via email: honker@ptialaska.net, if interested or try your hand at bidding on eBay. This is a good shot at getting a spare carb to keep that big roundie flying, at a great price. KEEP 'EM FLYIN'!
