I work for the MoD, and if you think we could get anything useful I'm prepared 
to write to the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight [1] and ask them for 
information.  P7350 is a MkIIa: "the oldest airworthy Spitfire in the world 
and the only survivor of the Battle of Britain still flying" [2].
When I was reading the thread about the boost control valve, I couldn't help 
thinking that we could contact an engineer who would have a definitive 
answer.  Any good?
