  1. You can't TDR antenna lines for this system because of the reciever sensitivity of the RT unit. It is over -140db if memory serves correctly. You can rebuild the connectors, build new cables or swap with another aircraft to see if it fixes the problem. A majority of these kinds of problems are the cables/connectors. Not sure where your R/T is located, or how long the cables are. I built a set of cables just for troubleshooting for several of the different platforms I worked. Also, are there any in line connectors in your aircraft? Do you guys still have NATEC civilians? Tiny
  2. I have no idea without a callout in the IPB.
  3. There are way too many LAC processes to remember that much. Also, some wiring was replaced by newer designs. The 1-!A-14 has the story on aircraft wiring.
  4. You will have to contact Lockheed. I used to have access to those LAC processes when I was working.
  5. Not a pneumatics guy, but it looks like an expansion joint like the type used in plumbing. Doesn't the parts index indentify it?
  6. Try swapping the TCAS processor with another aircraft. It is always goo to know you have a working unit, same with the antenna, swap with a good aircraft.
  7. I would think anyenna or one of the cables. Are you sure all cables are connected properly?
  8. Munir, since it makes no difference which phase is monitored, any phase could be used. I have no idea why they chose phase C. Maybe the relay was closer to a phase C connection. The only person that probably knows is the engineer who designed it back in the 1950's. Sometimes, I think you think too much about these details. 😅
  9. Again, I have never heard of a DCU. What system is it?
  10. I have never heard of anything called that, Munir.
  11. There are 9 of them. all #3 in the pic. Location: OW sta 185 and 293, and Ail Sta 103.5 on the wings, FUS STA 671, 701, 731.

  13. Munir, For valve #40P107? Cage code is 82829 Contact Allen Aircraft Products, phone # 330-296-9621
  14. Don't know why the #1 system pressure would affect #2. The worst thing the USAF did was put two 99.9% error free systems on the same bird. Woud have been so much better without the second system. The RF interlock system is ridiculously designed. I don't see that causing your problem. Wish I could be of more help.
