Default Help me identify these retracts!

Hello, can you help me identify these retracts. I think the golden ones are Spring Air 400 but not sure. The rest I have no idea. Once identified, I'll keep one set and try to sell the others... Thank you!

Not sure what the ones in the first picture are. I have a set just like them and no one on RCU has been able to identify them. If they are same as the ones I have, they are air-up, air & spring down.
The second picture is Spring Air.
If the struts are 1/2", they are 400 series : http://www.retracts.com/Retrax_400.htm
If the struts are 3/8" they are 700 series : http://www.retracts.com/Retrax_700.htm
Don't recognize the third set.
Here's a pic of the Spring Air 400, and the one like like yours.

Thank you!


Yep I too have recognized the Spring Air. They do not fit in my Giant Scale Canadair Challenger so I listed them on eBay.


The third set are the same ones as the ones installed in my Challenger, so I'll keep them as spare.



The first set... I don't need it so I'll try to sell it. I emailed CJM to ask if they are made by them. Hopeffuly they'll reply.... Or maybe they are Rom-Air??

They are not CJM, Sierra, Shinden, Rhom Air, Likes Line, Gene Barton, or Robarts. Now that I think back, I beleive someone told, me they were from a small company located in Tx that is no longer around.
The set I have are marked "P 185" and were installed in a Platt or Pica Mustang.
