18.104.22.168. Inspection Procedure. Refer to Eddy Current Method, paragraph 1.4.11 and Figure 4-24.
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 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
4.24.4. Backup Method. None required.
4.24.5. System Securing. The main landing gear shock strut upper cylinder, if removed, requires installation in
accordance with the applicable technical manuals listed in Table 1-1.
4.25. MAIN LANDING GEAR SHOCK STRUT LOWER STAGE PISTON (MT).
4.25.1. Description (Figure 4-1. Index No. 25). The shock strut consists of two pistons. The lower one absorbs the
normal landing loads.
4.25.2. Defects. Defects may occur anywhere on the surface of the lower stage piston. Particular attention shall be
directed to the bearing bore lug. No cracks are allowed.
4.25.3. Primary Method. Magnetic Particle.
