HI all, a while since the last update, but thats because 923 hasnt received the attention we hoped, just too much to do and not enough bodies. anyway we resumed work on her yesterday, which will continue now. first job is to get the fuel gauging working again, so out cam ethe inverter and control box to be repaired.

I trained in electronics in the late eighties and the phrase back then went: Black Boys Rape Our Young Girls But Virgins Go Without.

It may not have been PC, but it certainly gets etched in your mind laugh

Well another excellent productiove day on 923 Loads done. Pictures to follow later. But the Radio equipment bay was cleaned out and re-oiled today. no corrosion found. The MRG and TAcan coupling units were removed to be repainted though. and the air turbine AC gearbox was surface treated and cleaned.

All the equipment panels were opened up today for inspection, all bays are in super condition. We have however found that one of the fuel integrator boxes has been robbed from the port equipment bay though, so we need to find a replacement, before we can test the fuel contents gauging. Any leads please??

The bomb bay was inspected today, and apart from some rusty bolt heads, to be sorted next week. The bay is tip top, just waiting for the door tracks and locks to be re-greased. I also found the bomb bay lock sequence valve to be in the wrong postion. This has been re-set.

The standby inverter and controller have now been repaired and bench tested after finding some blown resistors. Both have been bench tested, ready to go back in soon.

We have ordered 500 litres of jet A1 fuel next week, to top up tanks 8 and 3, which have found to be both empty. thankfully the rest of the tanks are about half full each.

I went around today and reset all the hyd valves from emergency to normal too. We need to to up the system with another 30litres of om15 or so, and then we will attach the hyd rig to force the system back over to NORMAL mode, to function the air brakes, and bomb door. The wings will be a while yet, since all the micros witches are knackered, we think this is stopping the cockpit wing fold lever solanoid lock, from releasing.

One issue we do have at present, is our S1 leccy manuls have evaporated. Nige is asking around,(thanks mate), but any leads on S1 leccy manuals will be gratefully received.

Top stuff Milt, thanks for the WIP report, no the subject of the S.1 Leccy Manual, may have sourced one, I am awaiting a phone call on Monday to confirm.

Just a few bits done today, more corrosion treatment around the bomb bay door and radio bay area. Then both engines were blown over several times, a little vibration but thats normal with 923 and good run down times on both. Then finally a few more hundred litres of fuel added to top up a couple of the tanks.
Hopefully next week with a bit more time the inverter and control box should be refitted along with the newly repainted tacan coupling unit. smiley

a little more proress on 923 this weekend. Wing folds have been braught back into action after a long long time dormant. Next job is to replace all the rotten spine panels soon, and a nose wheel change soon. wink not tested the inverter yet as we cant find the start relay fuse location. we also have to change two small steel hydraulic lines in the gearbays, as both have rusted through. doh!

Well, the team were very busy today indeed. we had 3 patients today, Lightning Zf579 (fuel tank repairs) Vixen XS587 (general mechanical servicing) and Bucc 923. Hence we only tackled one job today on 923, and that was to remove all the rotten magnesoum spine panels and fit the nice new rot free S2 panels in replacement. We replaced 10 panels in all, port and starbord side. After a rub down next week thew whole spine will get a nice coat of white paint. we also set the ball in motion today to reskin the S1 jet pipe nacelles, and fit a zero port hour Gyron juniour engine this autumn. next week we will hopefully look to to test the AC power system.

Hi all.

More progress on S1 923 in the last few weeks. We finally have located a mint set of leccy manuals for the S1. As a result we now have the Inverter running again after many years, alittle more fettling to do yet before we risk putting full AC back on the AC bars though.

We also replaced the nose wheel (cheers nigel for the nose wheel wink) and lastly the spine has had a nice fresh coat of Cesnna white paint on th enew panels, plus the canopy had a good polish.

next will be some more minor tarting up in the paint departemnt, along with th continual hunt for a replacement set of cockpit side screens.
