3.7 OIL COOLER DRIVE SHAFT (ET).
3.7.1 Description (Figure 3-1, Index No. 7). The oil cooler drive shaft is aft of, and driven by, the
shouldered shaft of the fan. The fan forces air through the radiator, which cools the hot oil from the
main module sump. The forward flange of the oil cooler drive shaft is steel, the aft end is titanium,
and the drive shaft tube is aluminum.
3.7.2 Defects. This inspection is used to verify crack indications found visually on the aluminum
and titanium portions of the oil cooler drive shaft. No cracks are allowed.
3.7.3 Primary Method. Eddy Current.
