  1. https://www.ameteksfms.com/-/media/ameteksensors/documents/service center/technical_publication.pdf?la=en Looks like AMETEK may be a source. There is a POC on page 2. The reference is on page 25.
  2. I can't even find that part number in the C-130 T.O.s
  3. I don't know how you would make this, it is extruded.
  4. Glad it worked out for you. Your statement is why it isn't done at field level.
  5. Doing house stuff, building up the 302 for my Ranchero.
  6. Same to you!
  7. I never saw a sloping longeron replaced at field level, only depot. It is not something that can be done with little or no knowledge.
  8. Many fuses are for lower amp ratings. I think 5A was the lowest for CBs, could be wrong. There were plenty of slo-blow fuses a well. And remember, Circuit breakers and fuses are there to protect the wiring, not the unit the voltage is going to.
  9. These were used as upper windows on the A model, see 21 & 22 in the pic out of the C-130A-4.
  10. I am 99.9% positive this control box is not a C-130 part. There have been many itterations of Terrain RADAR. This looks like it was used for landing, at least to me. Just becuase it has a WR sticker on it means nothing, except WRALC has been a dedicated RADAR repair facility since Christ was a corporal. If you are that interested, maybe hit the IBM home page and contact them about it. Someone may track it down for you. Good luck.
  11. You mean besides what is in the Tech orders?
  12. That seems like it is using the valid signal to turn on the the Capture light, and not deviation. When you do the TACAN and VOR, do you have the HSI course bar centered before you hit the L/NAV switch? If it wasn't< iwould think the A/P would drive the yoke hard one way or another. I will send you a message and give you my e-mail address. We can converse that way. Maybe if it gets solved we can post what the problem was.
