- Expedited eqpt defect; sourced/replaced leaking MHU83 bomb-lift--secured 31x MK-82 CALFEX releases GF 20-10

- Assisted inspection of 17 bomblifts during 2005 NSI pre-inspection; ensured 100% technical data compliance

- Craftsman! Manufactured/installed two bomb lift brake lines; guaranteed asset for weapons loader training

- Diagnosed munitions lift truck with no steering; repaired steering pump coupling--saved the Air Force $3,818

- Discovered bomb lift with binding brakes; replaced brake disk/caliper--unit munitions loading ready in 2 hours

- Discovered bomblift difficult to steer; replaced leaking steering pump--returned unit for munitions uploads

- Discovered bomblift steering cylinder leaking; rebuilt cylinder in 2 hours--saved AF $534 in replacement cost

- Discovered bomblift with binding brakes; replaced brake disk/caliper--unit munitions loading ready in 2 hours

- Discovered broken wheel studs on bomblift; replaced studs--prevented possible "Dull Sword" incident

- Discovered leaking bomblift brake valve; salvaged part off condemned unit--save AF $370 in replacement cost

- Discovered leaking bomblift break pedal; salvaged parts of condemned unit prevented brake rotor damage

- During inspection found stand without lock pin mod; coordinated immediate allied shop repair--safe for use

- Encountered bomblift with loose steering; located/replaced loose tie rod end--allowed safe weapons loading

- Found bomblift with improper table movement; changed control valve lines--averted possible upload accident

- Identified a bomb lift with shorted starter wires; repaired wires; quickly returned unit for aircraft operations

- Identified bomblift with no steering; replaced coupling--averted steering failure during B-52 weapons upload

- Identified internally defective munitions lift truck tire; replaced in 30 min--prevented possible tire explosion

- Identified internally defective munitions lift truck tire; replaced inner tube/tire--ensured reliable for munitions

- Identified leaking bomblift exhaust; installed retro-fit kit--increased engine life/decreased future maintenance

- Identified leaking bomblift master brake cylinder; replaced cylinder--ensured safe/operational parking brake

- Identified leaking hydraulic hoses on bomblift truck; replaced hoses--prevented potential Dull Sword incident

- Identified shorted bomb lift starter wires; repaired in 10 minutes--key to upload of 29 general purpose bombs

- Identified worn bomblift hydraulic hoses; replaced damage hoses--prevented possible system capitation

- Identified/replaced leaking bomblift hydrostatic motor; saved AF $1,782--guaranteed safe for flight line use

- Inspected bomblifts prior to 2005 NSI; ACC IG rated AGE near perfect for tools, test, and handling equipment

- Performed nine steering sector TCTO inspections; ensured 100% technical data compliance of all bomb lifts

- Rebuilt manipulator head assembly on MHU-83C/E; reduced unit downtime--saved $8,227 over replacement

- Removed/replaced leaky bomblift hydrostatic pump in 4 hours; dispatched $58K asset for weapons load crew

- Repaired chaffing bomblift high pressure hose; alleviated main piston pump failure--saved AF over $1,750

- Repaired leaking hydrostatic pump on bomb lift truck; saved $1,773 pump costs--restored flight to EWO levels

- Replaced bomblift longitudinal cylinder; completed 3-hour job in 1--prevented potential Dull Sword incident

- Replaced corroded bomblift preheat solenoid; averted possible electrical fire--saved AF $22,321 engine cost

- Researched/routed 2 AFTO 22's on bomblift testing procedures; added operational test after all maintenance

- Spearheaded one-time inspection on four MHU-83 C/E munitions handlers; averted possible aircraft mishap

- Supervised repair of over 90 discrepancies on 3 bomblifts; ensured 100% compliance during 2005 ACC NSI

- Trained 5-level on bomblift hydrostatic pump replacement; dispatched $58K asset for weapons load crew

- Trained airman on bomblift bearing inspection/IPI procedure; ensured safe/reliable unit for weapons uploads

- Trained subordinate on bomblift brake caliper replacement; ensured proper bleeding of critical component

- Troubleshot bomblift engine smoking excessively; replaced head gasket--returned for weapons load training

- Troubleshot MHU-83C/E lacking power; adjusted hydrostatic system pressure--saved $12,280 in costly parts

- Uncommanded movement of bomblift; concluded bad centering mechanism--adjusted/FMC in 10 minutes

- Unmatched hydraulic system knowledge; rebuilt MHU-83C/E manipulator head center shaft--saved $9219

- Utilized salvaged hydrostatic pump off bomb lift truck; accomplished in 2 hours--saved AF $1,773 pump costs

- Utilized salvaged roll cylinder of MHU-83C/E bomb lift truck--saved Air Force $773 in replacement costs
