  2. 1660 inside the hell hole where the NLG ended up [img size=1024]http://herkybirds.com/images/fbfiles/images/PIC00018.JPG
  3. Yep, 1660, I still have pictures of it. Mike Bischoff did alot of research in the drawings to help get the parts needed to fix it, and I helped where I could, but I\'m just a pointy head. [img size=1024]http://herkybirds.com/images/fbfiles/images/moving_day10.jpg
  4. Here\'s the blow up of the area on the left.
  5. Here\'s something I came up with to explain it to supervision(s). We just has a quadrant replaced here for one lever creeping. Well, it didn\'t really come out readable. I can e-mail it if anyone wants it. [img size=1063]http://herkybirds.com/images/fbfiles/images/friction_knob_101_smaller.jpg
  6. I\'ve only actually seen it on our manuals, like the 1C-130(H)H-2-11. I can\'t find anything that specifiaclly says so, but maybe since all manuals start with the 1C-130, the decided to move the H part of the HC-130 models after the number. This book covers: RADIO COMMUNICATIONS AND NAVIGATION SYSTEMS USAF SERIES C-130E, EC-130H, HC-130H, HC-130N, HC-130P, MC-130P, NC-130H, AND WC-130H AIRPLANES
  7. Ahh, the advantage of charcoal and wood, Set a big fire Don\'t have to worry about gas bottles Tastes soooooooooo much better. Tiny \"Weber Kettle\" Clark
  8. Nope, E-models never had any wired 60Hz power. Anything with a motor or transformer that runs off 60Hz will operate on 400Hz, BUT, for a very, very short time. Most of the test equipment runs off 50-400Hz now. USAF OMEGA systems didn\'t use it either. I don\'t even remember a cooling fan for it, but I\'ve slept a couple times since I worked on that system.
  9. It was 0534 Sonny. I helped take the DVS tub off of it so they could use it to add SCNS to the ex-navy LC Ski birds. It was a bitch getting it out. They were generous with the use of sealant. Once we got as much sealant cut as possible, we used my Toyota jack between the upper cap and the tub to POP it out! Tiny
  10. Makes sense to use the E. That way, the original install drawings don\'t change.
  11. Back in 1967, two HH3 helos (13280 & 13281) flew from the U.S. to the Paris airshow non-stop, with 9 refuels. I can\'t find any info on what aircraft refueled them. Anyone have any idea what tail numbers did the refueling?? http://www.aeroworldnet.com/his.htm Tiny
  12. The oxygen bottle location changes were actually in the 130H-GE-00-1. Thanks to Mike Bischoff for reminding me.
  13. Only the slick E models at Moody have what I consider the gay smile. 62-1863 is our frankentanker ex-ABtripC airplane, and it does not, I repeat, does not have the teeth.
  14. Just in case any of you wanted to know, and I dug this up after assisting with an anti-skid problem. The self test switch sends 26VAC 400Hz to two of the 4 identical circuit cards in the control box, either FWD or AFT. The 400Hz voltage is knocked down and sent thru the transducer coils back to the appropriate circuit card, basically simulating wheel rotation. Releasing the switch causes the loss of the 400Hz rotation signal, causing the system to think the brakes locked up. This send a pulse to the valve circuit and test light circuit, making the light flash. I share this as nothing in any of the C130 books we have state that the transducer coils are part of the test.
  15. The bottles were moved when the sextant was removed from the 245 wall. There was a lot of real estate available, so the bottles were moved back there. Personally, it seems better if the armor is installed to have them mounted back there. BUT, I\'m not a crew member that would require a portable oxygen bottle at a millisecond\'s notice, so my opinion is not worth these keystrokes. Maybe someone who was in the circumstance to need the bottle next to the seat can chime in. There was a message/TCTO that came out moving the bottles back to the positions next to the seats. I\'d have to dig for that.
