In accordance with the AIRTASKWork Unit, the MAK-79C Store Gone Switch Override Dummy Lug PN A5lS63980-l, reference a, item number 2035 was evaluated to determine its suitability and supportability for use in support of the F-l4A aircraft at the Organizational level of maintenance. The Dummy Lug was designed to simulate the presence of a store lug in the aft hook of each MAK-79CA37B ejector rack on the weapon rails during checkout of the AWG-l5 fire control system. The MAK-79CA37B racks were designed so that the external Store Gone Switch senses the presence of the bomb lug rather than the rack hook position. The MAK-79GA37B racks will be replaced by BRU-2425 racks, which are modified versions of the MAK-79 series racks. The design of the replacement racks has been changed so that the internal Store Gone Switch senses the openclosed position of the forward rack hook, and the switch is operated by opening and closing that hook. Due to the design change, the Dummy Lug will not be required for testing the BRU-2425 racks. The replacement racks are scheduled for delivery to the Navy comnmencing early 1976.
