  1. Hi Casey

    About 2 weeks ago, all my mobile devices (windows mobile and

    Android) started being rerouted to a russian site when I try to

    log in. I have reformatted and cleared caches to no avail. Do

    you know of this problem from other users, or know of a way to

    get rid of this problem?

    Thanx

  2. We have 2 types of oil coolers in operation: the older type has the full oval frontal

    area cooling; and a newer type where the face is square.

    Older type cools very well, but has a tendency to high back pressure

    Newer type doesn't cool very well, but has great back pressure

    My biggest problem is trying to decide which is the greatest evil: oil dumping in

    flight, or high oil temp during ground operation ...........

  4. ... depending on the HF you have installed it could be putting out several hundred watts of power. (One of ours puts out 400 watts peak.)

    Good old HF radios - I'd forgotten about these. Yes, 120 watts AM, and 400watts on sidebands. I remember them causing some strife for me many years ago ......

  5. PJ, the canon plug removed.... aint it the same as null operation?

    what is the influence in the power settings? ok there is no input of the TD Ampli no more!

    very curious!

    I've had a few instances where the TD valve was being driven to a PUT or TAKE position, even

    with the TD switch in NULL. The solid state amps have been the sinners in these cases.

  6. I agree with doing it 'by the book', but also remember my apprentice days where we were taught

    to do this. Seem to remember a servicing sticker on the strut of a light fighter actually requiring

    you to tap the strut to free up air bubbles ............

  7. starter control valve not opening fully, bleed air shut off valve not opening fully, starter

    turbine damaged, compressor worn out/FOD'ed, cracked bleed air duct, blown bleed

    duct gasket, speed sensitive valve porting air to bleed valves below 94%, TD amp

    driving TD valve to PUT condition

  8. Picked up this story yesterday on News24.com .....

    Wellington - A New Zealand aircraft engineer died after he was sucked into an aircraft engine while carrying out maintenance work, it was reported on Monday.

    Air New Zealand subsidiary Safe Air said the 51-year-old man died during a routine maintenance operation on Monday morning at its base in the South Island town of Blenheim.

    Safe Air did not detail how the man died but Fairfax Media said sources had informed it he was sucked into the engine of a C-130 Hercules that had been removed from the aircraft and installed in the airline's testing bay.

    The man had apparently walked into the testing bay while the engine was running, Fairfax reported.

    Safe said police and labour department officials were investigating the death.

    It said Air New Zealand chief executive Rob Fyfe was travelling to Blenheim to support the man's family and colleagues.

    Condolences to family and friends

  9. As long as the TIT corrects to 800-840 at light-out, there is no problem: it merely

    indicates the FCU to be rich or lean at that point. A good run with several NULL starts

    and a rich/lean check will tell you whether there is a problem or not with the FCU fuel

    scheduling.

    Performance is not affected by a high or low before-light-out TIT. If the corrected TIT

    is only 780, it is probably indicating a broken or misrigged coordinator (a good place to

    start when dealing with TD problems)
