This picture just reminds me of what pain in the butt engine changes are on the F-4. I did not like having to safety wire those cannon plugs with .020 wire. argh! The torque booster on the fuel control ( throttle link) was not easy either. We made a special tool using a screwdriver with a couple of holes drilled through the screwdriver tip.
