2.11.5 System Securing. Secure the forward and aft transmission work platforms.
2.12.1 Description (Figure 2-1. Index No.12).The pitch links are between the swashplates and pitch varying housings.
Tilting a swashplate up or down moves the pitch link and pitch arm in the same direction. This increases or decreases
the blade pitch angle.
2.12.2 Defects. Defects may occur anywhere on the surface of the pitch link. No cracks are allowed.
2.12.3 Primary Method. Magnetic Particle.

Hand-held coil may be used in lieu of Position 1 only provided the link is detached from one end
220.127.116.11 Preparation of Helicopter. The helicopter shall be prepared for safe ground maintenance. 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 pitch links shall be removed in accordance with the applicable
