  1. Gentlemen, I regret to inform you that after ground run of the engines, the creep came back. This is even after replacing the valve housing cover. Our next plan is to swap engine 1 and 4 to see if the problem will transfer.
  2. Thank you all for your suggestions. Based on your advise, we replaced the gimbal assembly and carried out rigging of the propeller. The throttle lever creeping has stopped. Again, thanks for your time.
  3. Thank you very much. We will install a new gimbal assembly this morning. I will let you know the outcome. Once more, thanks a million.
  4. Please i need help. We recently encountered an uncommanded movement of the #4 engine throttle lever from ground idle to just before the gate of flight idle. We checked and confirmed that the cable tension is ok. We also cleaned and greased all bell-cranks. Yet, the problem persists. Once the throttle is moved from the ground idle, it creeps forward until it reaches the gate of flight idle. Any advise would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Thank you very much Casey. It is true I am relatively new here compared to tinyclark who has been a member since inception. Nevertheless, I take exceptions to someone asking me derogatory questions. Read his comments again and read Larry Myers objective intervention. I still believe tinyclark was unfair to me. I am here to learn and not to cause drama. Furthermore, it is not all on this forum that have English Language as their mother tongue. I think the warning is more applicable to him and not to me.

    Thank you very much Larry Myers. Tiny's question sounds very insulting to say the least. All he needed to do was consult Oxford English dictionary.

    I doubt if where I am from matters. If snag is a wrong word, then tell us the right word.
  9. Please, is there any Lockheed Martin Service Bulletin or any Technical Order extending the Periodic Depot Maintenance Cycle for C-130 H beyond 3400 hours and 3 years? Thanks for your help.

    Snag traced to low gap within the NTS bracket. Also, the pump housing hydraulic was observed to be low and rigging of the engine observed not to be correct. Hence, filler gauge was used to increase the NTS bracket space to 0.12mm, while the pump housing hydraulic was topped by about 2 quarts. Also, engine was properly rigged IAW technical manual. Thereafter, the aircraft was taken for Functional Check Flight and the snag cleared.

    I thought this problem was resolved after we replaced the engine mounts (upper and lower)? Confirm please.
