    Hi,

    Part Number 155-25-8 made by Eaton Corporation DBA Aerospace Division in USA (National Stock Number 4730-00-098-4273).

    Description:

    An internally threaded nut which has an internal seat or shoulder designed to engage the nut retaining flange of a union tailpiece. The threaded portion is used to engage the thread piece of a union, union elbow or the like.

    Fitted on several US military aircraft types after World War II.

    Andrew I am afraid it might be some some kind of problém at your end.
    I have checked it also in the IE 11.0.51 and Google Chrome at my phone and in both cases when I click on the photo thumbnail I got the full size photo.

    Depending on the date of manufacture of the Cap - it would have been manufactured by the original manufacturer (as I alluded to in an earlier post) which would have been Aeroquip,you can quite clearly see the Aeroquip Logo stamped on to the mounting bracket.


    Aeroquip Corporation was founded in 1940 in Jackson, Michigan, by Peter.F.Hurst, a young German aeronautical engineer who held the patent rights to manufacture two new products designed for the aviation industry-detachable,reusable hose fittings and self-sealing couplings.

    During World War 2,Aeroquip products became military standards on all U.S.Aircraft, establishing the company's reputation as a quality supplier and leading the way to penetration of the emerging fluid power industry.

    Aeroquip products include all pressure ranges of hose, fittings, adapters, couplings and other fluid connecters, as well as precision plastic molded and extruded products for the automotive and industrial markets.

    The company became the Aeroquip Group of Eaton in 1999 and currently operates 36 facilities in 11 countries and employs nearly 8,000 people.

    Could be USAAF or a US built A/C flown by the allies (or possibly post war NATO ????).
    There may be a log of losses for the area in which the part was found.

    It looks like there may be an Aeroquip part number on the mounting bracket ? although of course it may or may not be aircraft type specific.

    These types of Blanks were/are commonly used to blank off the Self Sealing Connectors where the Hydraulic Test Rig is connected for ground testing.

    Just a quick pic to show the Hydraulic Blanking Caps 'in action',you can see the 2 Hydraulic Hoses attached to the self sealing couplings/connectors,with the 2 Blanking Caps hanging safely on their respective Lanyards (so they do not get lost :) ).
    Most Hydraulic Test Rigs have 2 hoses - the smaller hose is the pressure line,the slightly larger hose is the suction (return) line.
