Is this pretty common?    To XXX-out a part number and stamp a new one on it?

From a 1946 P-80A crash.

P/N# is not a Lockheed number.    Anyone know what it could be?

New # is 9018330.   I cant read the old # from my photo and should've written it down when I was out there.  It started with 90 and was cast, maybe engine or accessory mount.

I think it is a gun part.

Doesn't look like any part of a .50 cal I've ever seen.  I'm thinking some kind of casing.  Bottom part appears to be rounded.  Dennis

The old engines, like a J-33, had many cast parts on them

Given the outer radius and bolt spacing I'm inclined to think J-33 engine casting.

That definitely looks like a good match.

Thanks Walt!
