Refer to Eddy Current Method, paragraph 1.4.11. Set up onest 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.)
18.104.22.168 Inspection Procedure. Refer to Eddy Current Method, paragraph 1.4.11 and Figure 6-10.
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 is 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 the inspection results as required by paragraph
6.10.4 Backup Method. None required.
6.10.5 System Securing. The flight control rods, connecting links, rod ends, devises, levers, and attaching parts, if
removed, require installation in accordance with the applicable technical manuals listed in Table 1-1.
6.11 PILOT COLLECTIVE STICK SUPPORT ASSEMBLY (ET).
6.11.1 Description (Figure 6-1, Index No. 11)
. The pilot collective stick support assembly provides the supporting
structure to mount the pilot's collective stick to the airframe. Inspect the support itself, the output arm, and the input arm.
6.11.2 Defects. This inspection is used to verify crack indications found visually on the pilot collective stick support
assembly. No cracks are allowed.
6.11.3 Primary Method. Eddy Current.
