Recommended Posts

Hello C-130 world,

how do you guy's measure the magnetic pick-ups,(RGB & Accessory drive)

  • what's the tolerance of debris
  • what is the restriction
  • what is the interval
  • reference documents
  • special requirements (debris meter / microscope)
  • ect...

T56-56 shows what's good and what's not. Mag plugs are checked every bpo. Fuzz and slivers less than 1/16" diameter are not a problem. During break-in on a new RGB slivers are commonly found. Chunks of any size are reason for concern, and require further investigation or power plant removal.

 

Using a multimeter a resistance of less than 20000 ohm (20k) requires magplugs be removed and visually inspected. On my test cell I had a system of LEDs that were hooked up with crocodile clips - 1 for each plug. I can't tell you how many times that saved us tearing up an engine

P, thx 4 the answer, do you use any TO or guideline, or is this purely out off experience.

I know that every approach is personal and I look at a certain way to this and some else approaches it from his:her way.

are there standard samples? how do you manage this.

 

best regards Bob

T.O. 2J-T56-56   ADH and RGB magplugs are covered completely Bob. Experience helps a lot too. Only thing I always made a point

of doing is getting the ground lead of the multimeter onto the body of the mag plug.
