  1. From what I understand, the main purpose of the torque strut is to maintain wheel alignment. It will move back and forth just a little to absorb loads on the two landing gear struts. There is no need for pressure inside the unit. Unfortunately, there is very little info in the tech orders.
  2. Railrunner is correct, the fittings have been installed on the rear and front beams since Christ was a corporal, I do believe. They are in the drawing dated 1958. We had electronic pods for the E-model birds we had at Ramstein that went out there. Don't know any weight limitations.
  3. Looks like he's removing what looks like the SKE OMNI antenna mount to me, but maybe it comes as an assembly so it is more expensive.
  4. I couldn't find it. Gee, I could make a hundred grand or so.
  5. Don't know anything about blue paddle lights. Here is the purpose statement from the TCTO. This TCTO wasn't even issued until 2001. "The purpose of this Time Compliance Technical Order (TCTO) is to document the installation of Night Vision Goggle (NVG) compatible cockpit lighting by replacing selected lens covers and caution/warning lights with replacements already in use by other C-130 airplanes. This action will provide optimal visual acuity for crewmembers using NVG and permits use of NVGs by aircrews throughout entire mission profiles without measurable degradation and within
  6. There are replacements out there to make the cockpit light NVG compliant. We did TCTO 1C-130-1782 to our HCs and one E-model when I was at Moody.

  8. That is sad, but at least he is at peace and not suffering.
  9. The hotel still stands, spent 70 days or so in there, 1977, waiting to get an apartment off base, in Klein Gerau.
  10. Not sure when it was taken down, seems it was there when we visited the area around 2006. That whole area is ramp now.
  11. The old terminal being torn down at Rhein Main.
  12. That's why I was an avionics guys.
  13. Good point. I don't have access to any working C-130s anymore.
  14. Don't know if this is what you are looking for or not.
  15. From 1C-130B-1 I would guess that every 10 percent is 3.5 degrees, that's using old math. I don't know how it would come out using common core math. Can't find anything on clearance.
  16. I wonder how many parts I replaced on that gal.
  17. All equipment on the bird is manufactured to work +/- 20 Hz. This is out of the -23GS: 40 kVA Engine-Driven Generator The phase-to-phase voltage is 200 VAC. The generator is connected as a 3-phase wye circuit with a grounded neutral. The output frequency range is from 380 to 420 Hz.
  18. Nice story Sam, to those of us who weren't fighting in that arena. I was a few years late.
  19. I really don't see the reason for it, but it is in all of the books. Maybe it has something to do with the 3 phase power used by the cargo compartment recirculation fan.
