Overall view of the LOX dome. On either side of the LOX dome are the oxidizer valves (strictly speaking, the No. 2 oxidizer valve is at left and the No. 1 valve at right).

Note the 16 large-diameter dome sealing plugs around the flat portion of the forward LOX dome face; under these threaded bolt covers are the inner-dome support bolts which bolt the injector to the LOX dome.

Also visible (from about 12:00 to 2:00 and again from 4:00 to 7:00) are some of the outer-dome attach bolts, which bolt the LOX dome and injector to the thrust chamber.

On the forward face of the LOX dome is the gimbal bearing.

At the 11:00 position is the heat exchanger LOX supply line.

Below the LOX dome, at the 6:00 position, is the hypergol manifold.
