Failing Tomcat Rescue

July 2nd, 2011 by FRaNKy

At the last Open Bunker the kickback on the F14 tomcat failed. Now before you go screaming about blown transistors and MPU repair guides, its always the silly things to check first. Coils move, shake, vibrate, rattle and roll so thats where to start.

First of all was a coil check. No move on the kickback so lets start there, obviously…

And indeed.. One would assume that this wire would be attached to the coil, as wires carry power to coils to engage a magnetic field to make the metal thingy in the center move to kick a ball. To the soldering iron !

And 5 minutes later.. Epic ta-da gesture and a pat on the back.. Obviously, everything was operational again…
