    Allison 501-D22A Engine

    2 things will happen here: 1- you will lose the commercial (civilian) certification for the D22 2- you will have no fuel flow indication. The T56 engine uses a 28v DC power supply for the ff transmitter and indicators, while the D22 uses a 115v 400hz power supply. The wiring and connectors are completely different. In my opinion this would be a completely wasted excercise, not to mention the expense of recertifying the D22 again

    Probably want to keep APU shut down when taxing on dirt or unprepared strips. Having said that, the intake screen holes are big enough to let in small gravel and stones which can and will damage the compressor when it is started again ....

    Oil lose inflight

    no problem, this is how we all learn

    Oil lose inflight

    Another thought, pull off the compressor rear bearing vent lines and check for oil - the lines are normally dry

    Oil lose inflight

    OK. big scavenge problem. How is oil temperature? Pull off lower E-duct from 14th stage. check the #2 & #3 bearing lines visible for oil staining. After that check #2 & #3 bearing lines to the external scavenge pump that they are not blocked. Heve you changed main oil pump yet?

    Oil lose inflight

    What is the difference in indicated oil quantity with engine running at 100% rpm and indicated oil qty immediately when engine is shut down (no rotation)? During ascent/descent are the oil pressures steady, or is there a fluctuation? Is there any fluctuation on the ground? Did the engine go across test cell before going back to aircraft?

    Oil lose inflight

    Lockheed Service News V18 #3 contains a brilliant explanation of causes and troubleshooting of oil dumping. It was later made into a service bulletin. I suspect you may be looking at RGB scavenge failure
  9. check gimbal assembly - something is worn out

    Xover cut tit

    I will say there is nothing wrong, nothing to do, nothing to fix - system is operating within specification. mechanical fuel schedule and electronic fuel schedule are perfectly matched

    There is no wrong TIT before correction

    Xover cut tit

    Do you mean a rise from 'before light out', meaning less than 800 and correcting to 800 to 840 after light out: yes, it is good. The ONLY, let me repeat that, ONLY requirement is a correction of 800 to 840. There is the rare occasion when the mechanical and electronic schedules are the same and no correction occurs. If this happens you need to do a proper TD system check.

    Bird FOD

    Not much to be done there. Airfield safety should be taking care of birds thru keeping grass verges short, falcons, etc. Nothing a crew can do once they're committed to land or take off
