Ejection Seat Restoration
Assembly
OK. Time to do the sub-assemblies and final assembly. Get all them manuals I said to get and
photos I said to take all together.  Some WD-40 or CRC 5-56 and a can of 3 in 1 oil. You'll see
where you need this during assembly. An old thick blanket to lay on the floor would be handy
too. Don't want to scratch that new paint. I put the head box together first, then the bucket
and finally the rails. No set way to do it. Whatever makes you happy. Have fun!
I made new stickers for the
survival pack.
The duplicate canopy initiator
and inertia reel gas generator
that I make. They have been
replaced with real ones.
New ground egress and center
eject handles.
New upper eject handles.
I didn't have the
duplicate rocket motor
or the SEWARS when I
did this project and
took the photos.
New ground egress
handle, center eject
handle and parachute
pack back plate were
purchased  from Chad
LeBeau of Aviation
Artifacts in St. Louis.

DUPLICATE Mk-92
ROCKET PACK MOUNTED
The duplicate could not be
made in one piece requiring
the disassembly of the real
Rocket Pack. It was then bead
blasted and thoroughly
cleaned. RTV molds were
made. As a number of tubes
are the same, only one mold
was made for each. The molds
were poured with a high
strength resin, mold marks
cleaned up and painted gloss
white. All the labels are
reproductions that I had made.
Many thanks to John Nitka of
ACE Resin. He did all of the
hard work. All I did was the
labels.
New center eject handle.
