  1. Yes. The problem has been solved. We applied sealant to tank #2 and allowed it to cure very well. Now, there is no more leak and the aircraft is back in service.
  2. We believe the load control valve is not opening. We confirmed that the load control valve is not the issue because we tested it on another APU and it worked.
  3. Our GTC85-180L APU starts and runs well. However, it doesn't supply bleed air. We have isolated the load control valve. We equally isolated the APU control switch as well as pressure regulator. We cleaned in-line filter. Despite these steps, APU still doesn't supply bleed air. It is strange to us and I am wandering if anyone has had this type of experience before and the possible solution. Thanks.
  4. GTCP85-180L starts and run well. However, no bleed air from the APU. Load control valve replaced with new one but no change. In addition, APU doesn't shut down normally unless by the pull of fire handle. Any help please?
  5. New primary servo motor for elevators and ailerons installed. System undergoing test. Outcome would be made known.
  6. C130 autopilot engages but doesn't couple. Coupler/controller, amplifier and servo motor replaced but discrepancy persists. Anyone with any idea to solve this problem? Thanks.

      Yes. We have carried out extensive sealing using A1/2 and B1/2 sealants. Job completed and allowed to cure. We are awaiting functional check flight to confirm if the leak has stopped. 

  8. Ok, we will do that. However, will the venting pass through the normal vent or can leak as shown in the video?
  9. The fuel leak stopped during landing. The crew said the fuel blown off during landing was suspected to be from the residual fuel accumulation during the leak in flight.
  10. Thank you very much. We will follow your recommendations.
  11. Has anybody experienced fuel leak that occurs only in flight but not on ground. Our C130H recently leaked fuel from the No2 Main Tank, trailing edge of the wing. I attached a video showing the leak. VID-20190410-WA0008.mp4
  12. We jacked up the aircraft and flexed the left wing, simulating flight mode. Yet, we couldn't replicate the leak on ground. Gentlemen, any suggestions on how to locate the leaking point?
  13. Gentlemen, regarding the APU that quits after 8 to 20 minutes, a new centrifugal switch was installed and the APU has been operating properly now.
