b. Refer to Eddy Current Method, paragraph 1.4.11. Set up on test block as follows:
(1) .Null probe on test block.
(2) .Adjust phase as required to obtain horizontal lift-off.
(3) .Move probe over all three notches in test block. Adjust gain to obtain a three block vertical
signal when probe is passed over 0.040-inch notch in test block. (See the standard
instrument display shown in Figure 1-7.)
18.104.22.168 Inspection Procedure. Refer to Eddy Current Method, paragraph 1.4.11 and Figure 2-29.
a. Place probe on a good area in the inspection location and null. Adjust phase as required to
obtain horizontal lift-off.
b. Inspect the part.
c. Any signal similar to the notches in the test block are cause for rejection.
Either probe identified in paragraph 22.214.171.124 may be used depending primarily on the
ease of accessibility and user friendliness. If the probes are changed, steps 126.96.36.199
b. (1), (2), and (3) shall be repeated each time a change is made.
188.8.131.52 Marking and Recording of Inspection Results. Mark and record inspection results as
required by paragraph 1.3.
2.29.4 Backup Method. None required.
2.29.5 System Securing. The pitch beam, if removed, requires installation in accordance with the
applicable technical manuals listed in Table 1-1.
