Refer to Eddy Current Method, paragraph 1.4.11. Set up on test block as follows:
Null probe on test block.
Adjust phase as required to obtain horizontal lift-off.
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
Inspection Procedure. Refer to Eddy Current Method, paragraph 1.4.
11 and Figure 4-15.
Place probe on a good area in the inspection location and null. Adjust phase as required to obtain horizontal lift-
Inspect the part.
Any signal similar to the notches in the test block are cause for rejection.
Either probe identified in paragraph 18.104.22.168 may be used depending primarily on the ease of
accessibility and user friendliness. If the probes are changed, steps 22.214.171.124 b. (1), (2), and (3)
shall be repeated each time a change is made.
Marking and Recording of Inspection Results. Mark and record inspection results as required by paragraph
Backup Method. None required.
System Securing. The tail pylon requires securing in accordance with the applicable technical manuals listed
in Table 1-1.
