Hi Mike,

VBU-4402UT. Yeah, big shot in the dark. Besides not having the correct amp rating, I just noticed that the connectors have entirely wrong pin-outs too.

Hey Don,
Yup, saw those on fleabay being sold by RFJP I believe. Tempting price at $80 isn't it? Never mentioned them because I don't think they get you anywhere.

I'm fortunate there are plenty of ethanol-free gas stations in my area, almost one on every corner. I put nothing but in the M38.

Our small-town airport has sold me a couple of gallons of 100LL in ...

Interesting story of your life experiences Don, but try to stay focused? Wink

The data plate on those NOS bottom half's might just be VBC-4004UT. Probably not tested recently, but the price is very n ...

Hi Don,
For your reading pleasure, below is a link to a NOS bottom half of a military 24V VR. I can't see the data plate for what model it is.

Pretty sure the bottom half of these VR's have most i ...
