This part was located at an F3H crash site in AZ. Anyone have any idea what it is.
Thanks

I sent this pic to 3 Nam era avionics guys (actually 1 who forwarded it to 2 others) and they thought it was a magneto, but that doesn't fit this jet, does it?   And the armature would be wrapped all around with a much different electrical field.

The 4 tower coils are spinning something. The cup in the bottom might have had a rubber diaphragm?

It's not sealed though, that throws everything off.

I thought maybe it was a starter servo missing the plunger and plastic case, or a servo valve but they would be sealed.

Kinda looks like the back side of an instrument.  They thought it looked like an instrument

My USMC avionics source (Cobras and Broncos) said it is probably an RFM Modulator (Really F-ing Magic).

Or a left-hand framnbjulator (with coiled wires made of unobtanium).

Just repeating what they said....

Friend of mine wrote the following:

Appears to be the cage for the fuselage-mounted master compass. This compass would provide heading feedback to the nav system and to the weapons aiming systems.
