  1. I know they were supposed to fire just before touchdown, but maybe they should have had them fired off using the weight on wheels switch. This was before CARA, and the APN150 Radar Altimeter was a piece of, well, let\'s just say it wasn\'t Shinola. Of course, that\'s if they were using any instrument reading to light them off.
  2. Just curious if anyone has ever really experienced loss of Ess AC. I\'m just killing a cat here... All of this noisy motor talk reminds me of the ARN14 VOR Dynamotors back by the receivers on the right hand side of the ramp. There were two azimuth indicators back there too.
  3. I found an old TCTO from 1967, INSPECTION OF C-130 UPPER CENTER WING AREAS FOR CRACKS. [img size=754]http://herkybirds.com/images/fbfiles/images/wing_crack_insp.JPG
  4. By the way, it\'s not a cockpit with an all female crew, that would be called the box office. Apologies up front, I just couldn\'t help it.
  5. I show Mil L 7808 as a syntehtic based oil. LUBRICATING OIL, AIRCRAFT TURBINE ENGINE, SYNTHETIC BASE 4.4.3 Compatibility. The compatibility test shall be performed in accordance with FED-STD-791, Method 3403. The lubricating oil shall be mixable with selected referee lubricating oils qualified under this specification, MIL-C-8188, and MIL-PRF-23699, without turbidity. The USAF Job Guide only shows both oils for the APU. The GTC, ATM and motor only show Mil-L-23699 as supplies required.
  6. You forgot, \"Hey Y\'all, watch this!\"
  7. Did you like her? That\'s LeAnn Rimes, that cute little C&W singer. This picture I have now is at the old Bitburg Brewery Restaurant.

  9. We called the SST181 Beacon antenna a donkey dick, same as on the F4 and A7. Bread box is the box aft of the nav table where we put the APN59 scope. [img size=979]http://herkybirds.com/images/fbfiles/images/IMG_0006.jpg
  10. No problem, I had more but can\'t find them. We shot one higher into the hell hole, and you could see the tires where the floor was. The HF radios had the control cables jambed into the flight deck floor. You can\'t see them very well in the picture, but they probably couldn\'t have moved them very much, if they even had time to try. After they put the nose on the trailer, they used ice chocks on one main to make any significant turns on the way to the hangar. Here\'s one more from inside the NLG area.

  11. You would think the wings would have been easy enough to get off and save.

  13. 1660 inside the hell hole where the NLG ended up [img size=1024]http://herkybirds.com/images/fbfiles/images/PIC00018.JPG
  14. Yep, 1660, I still have pictures of it. Mike Bischoff did alot of research in the drawings to help get the parts needed to fix it, and I helped where I could, but I\'m just a pointy head. [img size=1024]http://herkybirds.com/images/fbfiles/images/moving_day10.jpg
  15. Here\'s the blow up of the area on the left.
  16. Here\'s something I came up with to explain it to supervision(s). We just has a quadrant replaced here for one lever creeping. Well, it didn\'t really come out readable. I can e-mail it if anyone wants it. [img size=1063]http://herkybirds.com/images/fbfiles/images/friction_knob_101_smaller.jpg
  17. I\'ve only actually seen it on our manuals, like the 1C-130(H)H-2-11. I can\'t find anything that specifiaclly says so, but maybe since all manuals start with the 1C-130, the decided to move the H part of the HC-130 models after the number. This book covers: RADIO COMMUNICATIONS AND NAVIGATION SYSTEMS USAF SERIES C-130E, EC-130H, HC-130H, HC-130N, HC-130P, MC-130P, NC-130H, AND WC-130H AIRPLANES
  18. Ahh, the advantage of charcoal and wood, Set a big fire Don\'t have to worry about gas bottles Tastes soooooooooo much better. Tiny \"Weber Kettle\" Clark
  19. Nope, E-models never had any wired 60Hz power. Anything with a motor or transformer that runs off 60Hz will operate on 400Hz, BUT, for a very, very short time. Most of the test equipment runs off 50-400Hz now. USAF OMEGA systems didn\'t use it either. I don\'t even remember a cooling fan for it, but I\'ve slept a couple times since I worked on that system.
  20. It was 0534 Sonny. I helped take the DVS tub off of it so they could use it to add SCNS to the ex-navy LC Ski birds. It was a bitch getting it out. They were generous with the use of sealant. Once we got as much sealant cut as possible, we used my Toyota jack between the upper cap and the tub to POP it out! Tiny
  21. Makes sense to use the E. That way, the original install drawings don\'t change.
  22. Back in 1967, two HH3 helos (13280 & 13281) flew from the U.S. to the Paris airshow non-stop, with 9 refuels. I can\'t find any info on what aircraft refueled them. Anyone have any idea what tail numbers did the refueling?? http://www.aeroworldnet.com/his.htm Tiny
  23. The oxygen bottle location changes were actually in the 130H-GE-00-1. Thanks to Mike Bischoff for reminding me.
  24. Only the slick E models at Moody have what I consider the gay smile. 62-1863 is our frankentanker ex-ABtripC airplane, and it does not, I repeat, does not have the teeth.
  25. Just in case any of you wanted to know, and I dug this up after assisting with an anti-skid problem. The self test switch sends 26VAC 400Hz to two of the 4 identical circuit cards in the control box, either FWD or AFT. The 400Hz voltage is knocked down and sent thru the transducer coils back to the appropriate circuit card, basically simulating wheel rotation. Releasing the switch causes the loss of the 400Hz rotation signal, causing the system to think the brakes locked up. This send a pulse to the valve circuit and test light circuit, making the light flash. I share this as nothing in any of the C130 books we have state that the transducer coils are part of the test.
