I filled my tank back up and used the gas and ac to check it out...it did take awhile to get all the air out. Now ready to head out on Saturday morning....Oh...I used my adjustable wrench and a screwdriver to turn the wrench..still haven't bought a socket.
Well this morning I made a trip over to my local Lowes Store, about 4 miles. I found what I needed for only $5.67 using my Lowes Card I got a discount, total with tax $6.22. The best part is, it has a lifetime warranty on it.


Kobalt 1/2" Drive Shallow 6-Point Standard (SAE) Impact Socket

Item #: 337890 | Model #: 85314

So, it should withstand the pressure if I need to take my anode out.

You say it is a "impact Socket" - is it black or chrome? I hope you never have to use an impact wrench with that impact socket to remove your anode rod.

Not saying you can't use an impact socket with a standard racket, but if you need to use an impact wrench with it, you got bigger problems.

It is an impact socket...cheaper than a regular socket. No, mine is hand tight I assure you. 30 years of working on aircraft...I know what torque is. I got the socket so I can use it with other things if needed, ...it was cheaper than the rest and won't break or round out off my anode.

Very good - sounds like you know what you are doing.

What was your aviation career about?

I went to the Army Aviation School at Fort Rucker, Alabama on UH-1 Helicopters, flew in Vietnam with the 101st as a Crewchief on a UH-1H in 1971. Joined the Tennessee Air National Guard, 118th AW at Nashville in 1979. Worked on C-130A models, assistant crew chief, then we got a new C-130H2, I was the assistant on it in 1989. I was a crewchief for several years, then went back into the maint. hanger, where we did the phase inspections. Worked April 2009 to April 2010 on HH-60 Medivacs at Tennessee Army Guard.

Sounds like a honorable career. I am not too familar with all of the C-130 models, but when I was stationed at Dyess AFB, Tx in SAC, the Stewart AFB in Tennesee was closed and their unit and aircraft were transferred to Dyess. I remember seeing their guys polishing the radomes of what I was told were C-130A's (this was in 1961-62) with what I was also told was shoe polish. I remember those C130s had a smaller and different shaped radome than the later models. Truth or not - I don't know, but that is what I was told.


Also speaking of C-130s - we recently were at a RV park in Tucson, AZ, and it was close to the Davis Monthan AFB where retired/surplus military aircraft are stored. Driving along the base, you could see hundreds of various C-130s models sitting there. Kind of funny of seeing all of them there when you think that new C-130's are still rolling off the assembly line in Georgia.

I live in Smyrna, home to the old Sewart AFB. The old hangers are still being used by civilian aviation and the Army Guard. The C130's with the funny nose were the old Roman Nose...we had one, a 1954 model that flew everywhere. We have a lot of people in the area that came to Sewart in the old days, worked here...and now retired.
