Have you thought about using an "Easi Out" i.e. Drill into centre of bolt, put in Easi Out, Gently turn and bolt, in theory, comes out.

And no, its not a quick job shocked I speak from experience undecided

Thanks for then advice Nige - how'd you manage to get a drill/Easi-out into there?

There's barely enough room to get an 11mm ring spanner at the mo - did you elongate the holes in the small flitch plates that sit above the bolt heads -we talked of doing that next to improve access.

And there was me thinking that the split pins and castellated nuts were gonna be the hardest bit embarassed

nice to see it's not just me that can't get access panels off you've got it easy, the vixen's haven't moved for at least ten years extra than yours

i use easy-outs every day and it works out at about 50% succes rate

It was a combination of a manual hand rotated drill with a flexy drill bit extension - locally made at Abingdon when the Buccs were there or you have said - elongate the holes - Main thing is that when Buccs were flying that area, to the best of my knowledge was not pressurised so a bit of lateral thinking came in.

If you take pics I can put them on the website !!!

Aahh, I seeee! Well if it was good enough for Buccs in service, it'll do for '889 (with the man in charge's blessing of course!)

Was a bit wary of hacking the panels about as I was hoping to be able to beat them without resorting to too much violence but I feel better about it now I know it's fairly standard practice.

I don't envy you though matt, older aircraft plus more years at sea - not a good combination!

Not sure why I didn't take pictures - not like me at all, I guess I was sulking about them getting one over on me embarassed Will get some next time

I am not a Rigger but what they used to do was cut a hole to get access, do what they had to do then do a "patch" repair, crude but effective, lick of paint etc and way you went

Iíve removed a radio bay door in the past. To do this I just used a hacksaw blade (no handle) and sat patiently cutting through the bolts! Unfortunately I have not re-fitted one so I can offer no real advise. Not much use really am I rolleyes

Do whatever you feel is neccessary to gain access to the bolts Tim, once the step panel is back in place you will not be able to see any modifications anyway.

Nigel,
I have a full set of wiring diagrams for the MK2 Bucc, however there are over 2000 pages if youíve got a copier!

I have attached one page of the 28volt supply busbars just to give you some idea!
