Happy Birthday Casey!!
By Sonny · PostedHappy Birthday Casey!!! Thank you for all your hard work on this page. I know it it is greatly appreciated by us all.
By Sonny · PostedDear Abby Admitted She Was At A Loss To Answer The Following! Dear Abby, A couple of women moved in across the hall from me. One is a middle-aged gym teacher and the other is a social worker in her mid twenties. These two women go everywhere together and I've never seen a man go into or leave their apartment. Do you think they could be Lebanese? Dear Abby, What can I do about all the Sex, Nudity, Fowl Language and Violence on my VCR? Dear Abby, I have a man I can't trust. He cheats so much, I'm not even sure the baby I'm carrying is his. Dear Abby, I am a twenty-three year old liberated woman who has been on the pill for two years. It's getting expensive and I think my boyfriend should share half the cost, but I don't know him well enough to discuss money with him. Dear Abby, I've suspected that my husband has been fooling around, and when confronted with the evidence, he denied everything and said it would never happen again. Dear Abby, Our son writes that he is taking Judo. Why would a boy who was raised in a good Christian home turn against his own? Dear Abby, I joined the Navy to see the world. I've seen it. Now how do I get out? Dear Abby, My forty year old son has been paying a psychiatrist $50.00 an hour every week for two and a half years. He must be crazy. Dear Abby, I was married to Bill for three months and I didn't know he drank until one night he came home sober. Dear Abby, My mother is mean and short tempered. I think she is going through mental pause. Dear Abby, You told some woman whose husband had lost all interest in sex to send him to a doctor. Well, my husband lost all interest in sex and he is a doctor. Now what do I do? Remember these people can vote!!
Things To Ponder!
By Sonny · Posted1. Do not walk behind me, for I may not lead. Do not walk ahead of me, for I may not follow. Do not walk beside me either. Just leave me the hell alone.
2. The journey of a thousand miles begins with a broken fan belt and a leaky tire.
3. It’s always darkest before dawn. So if you're going to steal your
neighbor's newspaper, that's the time to do it.
4.Sex is like air. It's not important unless you aren't getting any.
5. Don't be irreplaceable. If you can't be replaced, you can't be promoted.
6. Always remember you're unique. Just like everyone else.
7. Never test the depth of the water with both feet.
8. If you think nobody cares if you're alive, try missing a couple of car
9. Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.
10. If at first you don't succeed, skydiving is not for you.
11. Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach him how to fish, and he will sit in a boat and drink beer all day.
12. If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.
13. If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything.
14. Some days you are the bug; some days you are the windshield.
15. Don't worry; it only seems kinky the first time.
16. Good judgment comes from bad experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment.
17. The quickest way to double your money is to fold it in half and put it
back in your pocket.
18. A closed mouth gathers no foot.
19. Duct tape is like the Force. It has a light side and a dark side, and it
holds the universe together.
20. There are two theories to arguing with women. Neither one works.
21. Generally speaking, you aren't learning much when your lips are moving.
22. Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.
23. Never miss a good chance to shut up.
24. We are born naked, wet, and hungry, and get slapped on our butt then
things get worse.
torque indicator cal problems
By pjvr99 · PostedIf torquemeter stamped number is 29540 then corrected cal-A of -4000 would give corrected cal-B of 25540. Assuming ISA conditions and 72% rpm, you would be looking at 709"lb torque calculated. Setup indicator as per 1C-130H-2-77JG-00-1 77-10-04. A difference of more the 50"lb will require corresponding adjustment of the guage. A difference of 750"lb requires tm remove from service. Try my min torq calculator if I am not clear .....

Somebody get me a priest!
By Sonny · PostedA Catholic man is struck by a bus on a busy street.
He is lying near death on the sidewalk as a crowd gathers. "A priest. Somebody get me a priest!" the man gasps.
Minutes drag on and no one steps out of the crowd. A policeman checks the crowd and finally yells,
"A PRIEST, PLEASE! Isn't there a priest in this crowd
to give this man his last rites?" Finally, out of the crowd steps a little old Jewish man
of at least 80 years of age. "Mr. Policeman," says the man,
"I'm not a priest. I'm not even a Christian.
But for 50 years now I'm living behind the Catholic Church
on First Avenue, and every night I'm overhearing their services.
I can recall a lot of it, and maybe I can be of some comfort
to this poor man." The policeman agrees, and clears the crowd so the man
can get through to where the injured man lay.
The old Jewish man kneels down, leans over the prostrate man
and says in a solemn voice: "B-4.

torque indicator cal problems
By NATOPS1 · PostedOK I think you may have two different issues. I would start with the mechanical side and verify all blade angles (low pitch stop, ground idle, reverse, feather, flight idle) and NTS gaps (anti rotation (drive) bracket, gearbox to NTS bracket and NTS bracket to valve housing) change or disassemble and lubricate the NTS bracket. Make sure to rotate the valve housing assembly to check the drive bracket gap. Question: the aircraft flew with out accurate torque indications and NTS was checked? I caution because there is a maximum negative tq limitation during the check which I'm sure you are aware of but just wanted to make sure...
In honor of National Farm Joke Day
By Sonny · PostedIn honor of National Farm Joke Day: An old farmer had a wife who nagged him non-stop. From morning until night, she was always complaining and nagging about something. The only time he got any relief was when he was out plowing with his old mule so he made sure he tried to plow as much as possible. One day, he was out plowing when his wife brought him his lunch out to the field. He drove the mule into the shade, sat down on a tree stump, and began to eat his lunch. His wife then began nagging him again. Nag, nag, nag, it just went on and on. Then suddenly, the mule lashed out with both back legs. He caught her smack in the back of the head killing her straight away. At the funeral a few days later, the minister noticed something strange. Whenever a woman mourner went to talk to the old farmer, he’d listen for a minute, then nod his head in agreement. But when a male mourner talked to him, he’d listen for a minute, then shake his head. This was so consistent, the minister decided to ask the old farmer about it. So after the funeral, he spoke to the farmer, and asked him why he nodded his head and agreed with the women, but always shook his head and disagreed with all the men. The old farmer said: “Well, the women would come up and say something about how nice my wife looked, or how pretty her dress was, so I’d nod my head in agreement.” “And what about the men?” the minister asked. “They all wanted to know if the mule was for sale.”
torque indicator cal problems
By ermitao · PostedHi first I would like to thank you for answering my question! This engine in question came from overhaul as well the torquemeter, the value from backshop is 29540, and they said to put on cal A -2340 and on cal B- 27200. As I started to calibrate the indicator with the standard value (29850), like you mentioned before, when reading the indicator it showed -800lbs torque, while trying to get positive torque reading the only values I could put on the indicator was -2600 and 27200. the indicator wouldn t go under the -2600. Changed three indicators and all showed the same. the reading was 500 lbs and could not go any higher(needed to be 700lbs). The point here is, I think the negative value for the cal A is out of standard as well the torquemeter, did the NTS check on air and did not get negative torque readings or lights on. Being talking with fleet management, and they say, all is normal according to OGMA, SA which is the back shop company. So what do you think about these values?
