RH AND LH BALLISTIC MANIFOLDS.
Pulling the ejection control handle withdraws the
handle from its housing and both sears from the
seat initiator firing mechanisms to fire both
impulse cartridges (fig. 5-31).
Gas pressure from the RH initiator cartridge
withdraws the pin puller, freeing the emergency
harness restraint release linkage (figs. 5-32 and
5-33). RH gas pressure also passes to the following:
1. The shoulder harness reel to initiate harness
2. The thermal batteries.
3. The 0.75-second (forward seat) delay
cartridge-actuated initiator mounted on the LH
4. The 0.30-second (aft seat) delay cartridge-
actuated initiator mounted on the RH ballistic
