The place for technical discussions about GA and flying.
Technical discussions about GA only, please.
I've not heard of them either but a quick google shows this:-

Thanks, Simon. I've found quite a lot of information via Google, and it was used in a number of military a/c.
In the PA28 that I fly, the system is behind the panel in the rear baggage compartment, and the display is a fixed card compass display on the front panel.
I'm not clued-up on RMI systems, but assumed that if the Magnesyn can feed a compass reading to a needle, then it might be possible to feed it to a moving card. What I need is to get up-to-speed on simple RMI kit to see if this is realistic.

If it is the same as I have come across in other aircraft you will have a remote Magnetometer feeding a display. MGL do a modern uncertified equivalent if you have a look at their website. If the above is correct it is likely to be proprietary, unless there is a port on the box in the boot to interface to other kit, but in 1960...
Maybe something like the 60's G4B(Multi-engine) and G4F (Fighter) Selsyn systems?
But I would have thought these would have been a bit expensive and complex for GA
