  1. 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.
  2. Make sure the antenna cables are connected correctly. There is a possibility that two are swapped.
  3. Not familiar with that RADAR. Given all you have changed, try changing the waveguide between the R/T and the antenna.Corrosion may cause false targets.
  4. I couldn't find an old TCTO that made the system inoperational. This note was in the old 130B-2-4. There is also no mention of C-130B or E having it in TO 1C-130H-2-70GS-00-1.
  5. 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.
  6. I can't even find that part number in the C-130 T.O.s
  7. I don't know how you would make this, it is extruded.
  8. Glad it worked out for you. Your statement is why it isn't done at field level.
  9. Doing house stuff, building up the 302 for my Ranchero.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. These were used as upper windows on the A model, see 21 & 22 in the pic out of the C-130A-4.
  13. 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.
  14. You mean besides what is in the Tech orders?
  15. 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.
  16. Paulo, I wish I could be more help. I don't have any wiring diagrams to look at, especially for the video problem. Does the R/T sit in the aircraft cabin. Is the antenna a dish or flat array? I think this is similar to the RADAR we had on the C-141.
  17. Sorry, I misunderstood your question. I thought they were not touching on the ground, not while on jacks.
  18. This was a topic of discussion many, many years ago at the PIWG conference. I though something was added to the tech orders. I will keep looking.
  19. Is there a requirement to have the bumpers touch? We went through this about "too many frikkin' years ago". An uneven ramp or uneven fuel load can cause the bumpers not to touch. Seems the reasoning was that the bumpers just protected the aircraft, s why the hell worry? Doesn't the rigging occur on Jacks?
