Lancaster NX611 Return to flight?

New Electro-pneumatic rams

We have just received 6 NOS (new old stock) Electro-pneumatic rams which fit the Radiator shutters under the engines and operated by the pneumatic system to maintain the temperature of the engine.  The radiator shutters on NX611 are currently OPEN (therefore down) but during flight they would need to open and close as required.  For those that are lovers of 'The Dambusters' film; one of 'Guy Gibsons' first lines is "Rad shutters Auto", he is referring to these!
