Mk 76 Mod 5 Practice Bomb The Mk 76 Mod 5 practice bomb (fig. 13-12) is prepared for aircraft loading as discussed in the following steps: WARNING Be   extremely   careful   when   handling   a practice bomb loaded with a signal. Jarring or  dropping  the  bomb  may  detonate  the signal.  Do  not,  under  any  circumstances, point either end of the bomb toward another person.  Loading  personnel  must  not  place their bodies in line with the nose or tail end of a bomb. 1. Remove the bomb from the cardboard container. 2. Remove  the  cotter  pin  and  Mk  1  firing-pin assembly from the nose. Inspect it for rust and deformation.  Ensure  the  firing-pin  cup  is  not deformed and the firing-pin point is below the lip of its cup. 3. Inspect the blast tube for rust and obstructions. Clean as required. When any obstructions  are noted, proceed as follows: Insert a plug gauge SK923AS503 into the center cavity. The gauge should slide into place until the shoulder rests flush   against   the   bomb.   When   the   gauge shoulder  does  not  rest  against  the  bomb,  the cavity is not clear. When the obstruction cannot be removed, reject the bomb as unserviceable, and   dispose   of   it   by   following   current   in- structions. WARNING A  signal  cartridge  must  not  be  swollen  or deformed in any manner. The primer must be flush with or slightly below the base of the cartridge.    If    you    attempt    to    install    a deformed  signal,  it  can  cause  detonation. Use extreme care when you handle a signal cartridge. When a practice bomb is not used after the signal has been installed, the signal must be gently removed and replaced in the original  shipping  container.  The  cartridge can be reloaded and used later. Do not apply pressure  to  force  the  signal  cartridge  or firing  pin  assembly  into  the  bomb  because the  assembly  could  become  deformed  and fire the signal. 4. With the firing pin assembly removed, elevate the nose of the bomb. Insert the Mk 4 Mod 3 or CXU-3A/B  practice  bomb  signal,  primer  end up, into the nose of the practice bomb. Slide it gently  into  place.  Do  not  use  force.  The  base 13-12 Figure 13-12.—Mk 76 Mod 5 practice bomb.
