Default AN# or Mil Spec needed - Streamlined Flying Wire

Does anyone know the Mil-Spec or AN# for streamlined flying wire?

I haven't been able to find it in my usual sources.

Thanks!

I'm not understanding the question. I know of only two sources in the world for streamlined flying wire. Brunton's over on the other side of the Atlantic, or Russ Ward down in New Zealand. Maybe there's one or two others I don't know of and someone else does.

I'm trying to track down the actual MIL SPEC for these streamlined flying wires. I'm trying to create a CAD model for them and need to know the nominal dimension.

Does anyone know where I can find the MIL SPEC?

I don't have the Mil Spec but I modeled the wires by measuring them. Good enough for what I was needing but not for building the parts themselves.

Spec is AN67x for the wires. AN665 should be for the fittings. AN70x is for internal, nonstreamlined tie rods. I dont have access to IHS anymore, so I can't download those specs again. Everyspec doesn't show them in their library. I know I probably have copies at home, but no clue where right now.

You are probably going to have to find archived material specs. They might be still called AN wire as a lay term, but the government probably has purged the spec, unless you know of a modern use.

Everyspec doesn't have it in their library. I know IHS does, but I no longer have access and can't afford a personal subscription. I'll look in my file cabinets over the weekend, and I'll email the guy in Switzerland that I sent copies to and see if he still has the files.

BTW, replace the "x" with a number between 1 and 9 for the various specs.

My old work has a fairly old, as in 1970s as newest they'd be from...paper/hard copy of AN specs. I'll go up and look these up and see what I can find if you still need them.

Thanks! I would love them if you happen to find them. ☺

Hmmm well I've researched the entire FAA tech library for old AN specs. Spoke to a couple engineers and they said they think "I think they tossed all that old stuff as no one was "maintaining it anymore". Geez.

I also went by my old shop and they have paper AN standards books but no AN-67x. They did have the AN-665 and AN-70x internal tie rods specs. Need those?

I have one more place that deals in hardware...and has for along time. I'll give them a shot now. Just thought I'd update ya so you didn't think I forgot about ya.

The specs are available on IHS at about $25 per spec. I haven't heard anything back from the guy I had sent copies to a couple of years ago.

Thanks but the streamlined ones are the one I'm after. It's not critical to what I'm doing.. I just like the accuracy whenever I can get it.

It's probably one of deference. Mil spec AN 67x reads, See old guy at Bruntons.
