  1. Good on him. He spent a lot of time handling a buttload of C-130 issues.
  2. 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 engine
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Does this go back to the Overhead Delivery System days?
  6. 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.
  7. I'll see if I can find mine, but may have given it to someone.
  8. Uhm, what is it for?
  9. 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 maint
  10. Nevermind, can't seem to delete this. I am making a box with radio shack parts.
  11. The parts drawing calls the lower light a taxi light. Maybe the upper was used for that? Railrunner, the old antenna was behind that radome, the R/T was behind the lights. I kinda doubt that will happen.
  12. Funny that they had lights on the front of the aircraft like that.
  13. I am an avionics guy, but did work structure issues when my APG guy was a away. "SMP doesn't allow for any damage around fasteners and these are indeed damages." One would have to define "around fasteners" to figure this out. I've never seen skin replaced for this. Those damaged areas almost look blended now. I think damage would be considered oblong holes or cracking around the holes, not a minor indentation that is almost as far away as the hole circumference. Good luck!!
  14. I would think it would be Lockheed Furnished Equipment or Government Furnished Equipment.
  15. You can try this site: https://www.wbparts.com/rfq/1560-00-622-7936.html or http://www.iso-parts.com/Public/Search_NSN_Results.aspx?Part=370512-1R The only manufacturer code for this item listed in the books is Lockheed.
  16. This reminds me of when they closed Khorat. The C-130 gunships used pretty much the whole runway when they took off, due to the extra load of the crews taking a lot of worldly possessions with them.
  17. Do you mean instrument panel layouts?
  18. Fuel holding relay? Did you try swapping the APU package out, maybe to another aircraft?
  19. No sweat. I've seen it before. We even had a whiskey compass error that was caused by a ferrous screw in the window frame.
  20. Not that I am aware of. Commodities like seats are about the same as every other little part on the aircraft. Engines, GTC, and maybe a few other parts have their own records which can tie them to an aircraft.
  21. Sorry, I didn't see anything but the airplane dress.
