22.214.171.124 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
damper assembly shall be removed in accordance with the applicable technical manuals listed in
126.96.36.199 Access. Access to the damper assembly is from the L/R engine cowl (Figure 1-4, Items
3T-7 and 4T-8).

Area for NDI, paragraph 1.4.4.
184.108.40.206 NDI Equipment Settings.
a. Make the following initial settings on the Eddy Current Inspection Unit, NORTEC-19eII.
- 200 KHz (Aluminum) 1500 KHz (Titanium)
- (56_ Aluminum and Titanium)
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.)
