Thanks everyone for the help on this. I think I have now resolved it. I am told the inner race in question was linked to the "gimbal gyroscope" mechanism of the torpedo.

One interesting point this may have thrown up...

Although some of the diagrams etc you have suggested I look at are good, I wonder if there are any highly detailed mechanical drawings in existence, preferably on the internet or in books, which show all the inner workings of WW2 torpedoes. I have lots of detailed drawings of u-boats in Eberhard Rossler's book The U-Boat. Anyone familiar with that book will be aware of the astonishing detail...
