Select AC on the AC/DC power switch.
Place probe/yoke on part in position 1 as shown.
Press the test switch and apply a light coat of magnetic particle media at the same time. Remove the media
momentarily before removing the current. Current should be applied for no more than five seconds.
Inspect for cracks using the black light.
Demagnetize before moving to the next position. Refer to paragraph 126.96.36.199.
Repeat steps a. through e. for position 2.
188.8.131.52 Marking and Recording of Inspection Results. Mark and record inspection results as required by paragraph 1.3.
184.108.40.206 Demagnetization. With the switch remaining in the AC position, place the probe/yoke legs in the same position
used for magnetizing. Press the test switch and withdraw the probe/yoke from the part for a distance of two feet before
releasing the switch.
6.4.4 Backup Method. None required.
6.4.5 System Securing. Clean the yaw pedal support shaft thoroughly to remove all residual magnetic particle media.
Refer to Post Cleaning and Restoration of Part or Area After NDI, paragraph 1.4.16: The yaw pedal support shaft
requires installation in accordance with the applicable technical manuals listed in Table 1-1.
