Abstract : This project was conducted at Tyndall AFB, Fla., 22-25 May 62 in support of an investigation of the MB-1 Ejector Rack Preload Torque problem. The specific problem concerned preload torque of MB-1 ejector rack hook release mechanism. Primary purpose of the test was to establish a present preload torque which would eliminate torquing of the preload bolt at each weapon loadings. As a result of limited information obtained from this test, it was concluded that a preset preload torque could not be established due to exceeding torque variations obtained during weapon loadings.
