184.108.40.206 Preparation of Helicopter. The helicopter shall be prepared for safe ground maintenance.
A partial inspection for cause (visual indications, sites of mechanical damage, corrosion, etc.) may
be performed on all exposed surfaces of the installed part using this procedure. If required, the
support shall be removed in accordance with the applicable technical manuals listed in Table 1-1.
220.127.116.11 Access. Access is through engine cowl (Figure 1-4, items 3T-7 and 4T-8).
18.104.22.168 Preparation of Part. The part shall be thoroughly cleaned. Refer to Preparation of Part or
Area for NDI, paragraph 1.4.4.
22.214.171.124 NDI Equipment Settings.
a. Make the following initial settings on the Eddy Current Inspection Unit, NORTEC-19eII.
- 200 KHz
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.)
126.96.36.199 Inspection Procedure. Refer to Eddy Current Method, paragraph 1.4.11 and Figure 5-21.
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.
