  1. We had a bad one when I was in Alaska, and a team from depot had to come up and change it. I am not sure if it is addressed in the 1C-130A-3 or not. No repair is authorized by maintenance folks.
  2. The lack of signal wouldn't have affected the VOR, I don't think. It is possible the system was picking up noise or the lack of load on the receiver antenna connector caused a fault. One side being off certainly should have screwed up the localizer. Good find, guys.
  3. I don't have enough info at my fingertips to give a firm yes, I wish I did. It looks good, but have you contacted FMS at WRALC?
  4. Sorry, no help from here.
  5. There is a plate installed on the rear beam of the wingbox at Wing Sta 10R, W.L. 262. Not sure if that is it, or that you can get to it.
  6. LMAO, Larry. What system is this? What year and model?
  7. None of the T.O.s I have start with Oxford.
  8. I hope you don't think you could install it yourselves. This mod takes serious tooling and leveling equipment.
  9. I apologize if my question offended you. I grew up as a military USAF brat and have lived all over the world. I have never heard that term used in maintenance terms, so just wanted to know what part of the world "snag"comes from. Also, I am an Avionics dude, not engines. And, I have to add, grow some thicker skin. Aircraft maintainers don't get offended by anything really. Good luck solving your problem.
  10. You would have to contact Warner Robins for any documents involving wingbox EBH.
  11. Good on him. He spent a lot of time handling a buttload of C-130 issues.
  12. It is not real simple, and it has been 7 years since I retired. WR-ALC recorded the information on aircraft flights for the USAF. Aircraft flight data was tracked as far as profile, number of landings during a sortie, air drops and flight patterns among other things. There was a multiplication factor used depending on all of the parameters. This was multiplied by actual flight hours to get the EBH. Aircraft that just flew around in circles or straight easy flights had a low multiplication factor. Other missions required harder movement of the aircraft, so those had a higher factor. The engineer that ran the EBH study was Mr. Peter Christiansen, head of C-130 Engineering. I have no contact info for him, but I assume he still works at Warner Robins ALC, Georgia.
  13. So much for Op Chking systems that were disturbed. I'd like to see if that is called out in the TCTO. If it call for disconnecting, surely the check was needed. Glad it was an easy fix.
  14. Did you get this working. I would contact WRALC first. Find out what the TCTO directs as far as disconnecting systems. It sounds like something was disconnected to me.
  15. Does this go back to the Overhead Delivery System days?
  16. Yea, they all went to DRMO I believe. I could have gotten one back then as well. That's OK, my box came out good and he loves it. The master power switch has a red switch guard on it, and it has 14 LEDs that light up with toggle and push switches.
  17. I'll see if I can find mine, but may have given it to someone.

    Uhm, what is it for?
  19. Are you talking about maintenance? If so, the old system of 9 or so volumes is over with. As a matter of fact, the old -2-X series isn't even supposed to be used. The newer OMMS style manuals have to be used. There is now a: 130J-2-00GV-00-1 GENERAL VEHICLE MANUAL which covers general serving, parking, mooring, etc. General System (GS) Manuals. The GS manuals provide detailed system and subsystem description, as well as theory of operation. Separate GS manuals are provided for each system. Job Guide (JG) Manuals. The JG manuals provide detailed start-to-finish, step-by-step maintenance procedures. The step-by-step instructions are fully illustrated with facing-page art except for steps that reference other data. Switches, controls, and indicators shown in the illustrations may not be shown in the position required by the text. Each JG manual is divided into tasks that cover a particular maintenance action such as rigging, removal and installation, operational checkout, etc. There are some 25 GS manuals and hundreds and hundreds of job guides. This is on all tech manuals. DISTRIBUTION STATEMENT - Distribution authorized to U.S. Government agencies and their contractors (Administrative or Operational Use) (15 January 2004). Other requests for this document shall be referred to C130SG/LGJ, Wright-Patterson AFB, OH 45433-7239. Questions concerning technical content should be directed to C130SG/LGJ.

    Nevermind, can't seem to delete this. I am making a box with radio shack parts.
