C-130 flight control, landing gear, doors & ramp troubleshooting guide

Recommended Posts

Old A/R Guy

This is a collection of experience-obtained information about C-130 troubleshooting for systems assigned to what the USAF used to call "A/R Shop"...flight controls, landing gear, doors, and ramp.  This was written for various versions of the E-model fleet back when, but probably applies in most instances to the newer models as well, since the "A/R Shop" systems haven't changed much, if at all.  Use your judgement and technical requirements if you choose to refer to this publication...regard this information as helpful hints, nothing official.  Hope it helps!

Great tips!  Even after 36 years on the old Herkadactyl I appreciate what I can pick up from "Old Hands".  Thanks for the post!

      Recently, we had an issue with the Aux hydraulic system while operating the cargo ramp. While manually operating the ramp in position 4, the the ramp would begin to lower uncommanded. The original thought was the return line check valve was bad. However, after canning one from another plane to trouble shoot, the same issue was occurring. During all other phases of manual operation, the ramp was operating perfectly, locking pressure was at about 650psi, unlocking was 720psi. Virtually everything was changed out and the problem was still occurring.

      We finally decided to open up the doghouse panel and found the ramp locking cylinder was bypassing, but only in manual position 4. This was obviously a very uncommon occurrance and just wanted to be able to help out if this happens again
