  1. This p/n is no longer procureable... But if I needed it to get me home, I would sure use it. FEDLOG also states, "REQUISITIONS MAY CONTINUE TO BE SUBMITTED UNTIL STOCKS ARE EXHAUSTED."

    The only other info I can find is that it does not contain any precious metals, and it was canceled in 1993.

  2. Thanks for the input guys, but common sense doesn't cut it. I once ran #1 engine to NGI, but had the RH MLG door up. Lovely QA saw this, and then wrote me up for a DSV. Like I mentioned before, the 71-00-1 says "Closed, Secured." Is there anything that says I can run with any panel or door "Fully Removed?"

  3. Got a turbine overheat indication on the T-handle and on the instrument panel and I can't figure out where my problem is. I've checked all four of the detectors in the clam shell (checked good) and installed a new keyer but those dang lights in the T-handle keep blinking. Any help ya'll can provide would be great.

  4. Tiny, you have been a great source of information for many of my questions. In my original post, I asked if anyone has seen a CRES Heat Exchanger installed. That is what lead, not just me, but many others around me to question whether the newer style Exchanger required paint. So, have you ever seen a non-painted Heat Exchanger installed?

  5. newbie here. Just wanted to say Hi and introduce myself. My name is Patrick Griffin and I'm currently stationed at Kirltand AFB, NM. I'm an MC-130P Instructor FE currently going through upgrade to evaluator. Crew Chief for most of my career but cross trained 2004. Flew C-130E/H3's in the 61 AS, then moved over to AFSOC in the 17th SOS at kadena. I currently instruct schoolhouse students on both the Shadow and King as well as being the Ops Sup in the 550 SOS. Anyway, stumbled on here through heyeng.com and am glad to have found this site.

    Let the hazing begin....:D

    Let me get this straight, you are the same Patrick Griffin that was at the 61st, the same Patrick Griffin that gave me a QA award in 2003 at Al Udeid for an engine run I performed exactly by the book:eek: It's Caldwell. How are you?

  6. Thanks Tiny, but unfortunately the drawing I am after is the weld drawing number, L8743034(-1). We have seen this drawing, but there is not enough evidence to support whether this newer style heat exchanger requires paint or not.

  7. Has anyone seen a L8743039-1 heat exchanger installed? It is the newer Heat Exchanger and was supplied to me unpainted, (It is stainless steel). The older 85027-1 Heat Exchanger is aluminum in construction and painted with Black Wrinkle (High Heat) paint. Just wondering if anyone has seen the stainless steel version installed, or knows of a paint spec or type for the L8743039-1 exchanger.

  8. I'll share my happy little Santa memory.

    At Clark, Santa would do a fly over, at night. "We" would be in the car listening to the radio hearing Santa report in on conditions, and names of kids.

    We could see the glowing red light of Rudolph's nose.

    One year I asked my mom "Why does Santa's Sleigh make that same noise of the planes dad works on?"

    Well quick thinking - "Santa can't fit all of the toys into that tiny sleigh. So he uses a herk, the plane that daddy fixes."

    "And what about Rudolph then?"

    "Well, he is the co-pilot."

    Made complete sense to me.

    I had figuered it all out years later. But it is still a fond memory.

    The Herc Santa uses...

  9. Just accepted a job with my current employer, working on the C-130 HVM program. Anyone have any input as to the Warner Robins area? Where to live, where not to live? Thanks!

  10. Has anyone ever heard of an engine inlet ice detector fracturing and Fodding out an engine? I recently spoke with an engineer at Mack Electronics and he mentioned that the older 575-315’s were renowned for this; we talking hundreds of T-56’s. I also understand that the 575-315’s have been replaced by the Lockheed approved 092-000-001’s. Was there ever an Air Force TCTO to check for these 575-315’s and remove them from service?
