AVIATION MAINTENANCE ALERTS

The Aviation Maintenance Alerts provides a common communication channel through which the aviation community can economically interchange service experience, cooperating in the improvement of aeronautical product durability, reliability, and safety. This publication is prepared from information submitted by those who operate and maintain civil aeronautical products. The contents include items that have been reported as significant, but have not been evaluated fully by the time the material went to press. As additional facts such as cause and corrective action are identified, the data will be published in subsequent issues of the Alerts. This procedure gives Alerts’ readers prompt notice of conditions reported via a Malfunction or Defect Report (M or D) or a Service Difficulty Report (SDR). Your comments and suggestions for improvement are always welcome. Send to: FAA; ATTN: Aviation Data Systems Branch (AFS-620); P.O. Box 25082; Oklahoma City, OK 73125-5029.

(Editor’s notes are provided for editorial clarification and enhancement within an article. They will always be recognized as italicized words bordered by parentheses.)

 

AIRPLANES

CESSNA

Cessna:  A150K; Water Block of Air Intake; ATA 7160

A mechanic provides this excellent analysis of his customer's aircraft problems.  "The owner took off for some pattern work.  (Since...) the weather had been cold and clear for several days he thought it perfect for touch-&-goes.  On the downwind leg he began his normal landing check list—including checking the carburetor heat.  After pulling (this heat control) 'ON' the engine died.  He turned off carburetor heat and the engine restarted on its own without pilot input.  He continued the pattern and gradually reapplied carburetor heat on base and final.  On short final the engine died and the pilot glided to a safe touchdown just beyond the end of the runway.  He was able to restart the engine and taxi back to parking without incident.  We looked at the engine...and found the Scat hose (model 150 & A150; 1970-77 parts manual; figure 56; sheet 2; item 29) coming from the front baffle down to the front of the exhaust shroud had filled with water.  The installed hose is in the form of a 'J', and the bottom of this 'J' was full of water and ice.  In our damp climate we have noticed this before and usually ensure each scat hose has a drain hole in any low areas.  Somehow this (particular) aircraft had been missed.  We have found water and ice in similar installations on Cessna 150 and 172 series aircraft.  Because of their location, the air intake scoops in the front baffle funnel rain water into the SCAT hose, (filling) the forward hose.  Sometimes the water overflows the front hose and flows along the lower inside of the heater shroud, (attempting...) to also fill the carburetor heat box-to-right-shroud Scat hose (model 150 & A150; 1970-77 parts manual; figure 56; sheet 2; item 19).  This results in the engine receiving a large slug of water or ice when the carburetor heat is applied.  Whether the water is in a liquid or solid form depends on the duration of the flight and whether the heat of the operating engine has melted any ice that may have formed during periods of inactivity.  This is a dangerous condition during weather conditions when carburetor icing is a possibility.  The pilot would (be prompted) to turn on the carburetor heat to clear any icing that may have formed through the normal induction system.  Instead of getting warm air as expected, the engine would suddenly receive a small to very large burst of water or ice into the induction system that could instantly refreeze, plugging the induction system entirely.   So far, we have not seen this happen.  We normally encounter this problem in warmer months when we receive more rain.  Under those conditions the pilots notice a rough running engine when carburetor heat is applied, and turn the heat off before


the water is fully removed—or (they opt) to continue with the heat (applied and the resulting engine roughness...)—until the water clears from the hose.  One way to check for this problem on any aircraft is to (examine) the scat tube reinforcing wire for rust in the lower areas.  The occasional water build-up will cause these reinforcing wires to have more pronounced rust on the lower portions where water would sit on the wire wraps.  Any aircraft showing abnormal wire deterioration in those areas should consider installing drain holes.  (See Cessna 170B parts manual:  figure 50; items 35 & 36.  See also Cessna 172A, B, C and 175A, B, C parts manual:  figure 59; items 31 & 33.)"

Cessna:  R182; Sheared Main Gear Pivot; ATA 3233

(Friend and cohort Chief Inspector James Kelly of Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University provides the following discrepancy report.  Mechanical mavens might note the possibility of another "metallurgical treat" referencing this report in the near future...stay tuned!)

"During slow flight maneuvers the instructor noticed the green, landing gear 'safe light' was not illuminated.  The student observed the left gear was hanging out—and swinging.  The gear was cycled, but the left main remained free and disconnected.  After contacting dispatch the instructor elected to retract the right and nose gears and land gear-up.  Maintenance found the left gear pivot had sheared at the spline shaft.  The right gear was removed and Zyglo checked.  Close inspection found the right pivot was cracked three quarters of the circumference    around the spline shaft, nearing complete failure.  This crack area is not normally accessible during regular inspections without removing the gear actuator.  Cessna has been notified of the problem.  At this time there are no replacement steel pivots available for these aircraft."  (Gear pivot P/N: 22411143.)

(Okay Pat....  How many times did you take this last shot to get such a clean picture?   I can almost stick my finger in there.  At 500% magnification in MS Word, a scratch/crack line can just be discerned at the 5 o'clock position—initiation point?  Readers might surmise and note their own failure start point for later comparison against "electron scrutiny" –should it become available.   Thanks again for your continuing support and efforts.)

Part Total Time:  4,754.0 hours.

 

Cessna:  421B; Frayed Aileron Cables; ATA 2710

An A&P holding an Inspector's Authorization writes, "(I) found the left aft aileron cable frayed at wing station 58.94—the pulley was frozen.  No defects were found on the other cable systems.  (During) replacement of this cable it was also found frayed at wing station 87.29.  The pulleys at this station were turning freely.  When installing the new cable I also noticed the forward aileron cable with broken strands at (the same) wing station 87.29.  (It too required new cable installation.)

"I suggest everyone be reminded of these locations (including wing station 106.79) as these access panels are in the wheel well with the pulleys off to the side and down.  (This) is a hard area to inspect, (requiring) the ailerons to be moved to their travel limits for complete (cable) inspection.  These cables were broken in small, localized spots."  (Left aileron cable P/N's:  5000008-66 and -67.  Aircraft total time:  5,567.2 hours).

Cessna:  560XL; Nose Gear Trunnion Corrosion; ATA 3221

A repair station technician states, "While working an unscheduled nose gear vibration (popping) discrepancy, we found bearing P/N MS27642-68G to be rough when turned.  Upon further inspection we found corrosion and pitting between the steel bearings and the aluminum nose landing gear trunnion assembly.  (This) trunnion (P/N 6642611-9) should be treated to prevent dissimilar metal corrosion."

DIAMOND

Diamond:  DA20 C1; Failed Auxiliary Fuel Pump; ATA 2822

An unidentified submitter writes, "A problem has been found from trying to start this aircraft—the auxiliary fuel pump (P/N 5367001) doesn't supply enough fuel PSI to open the manifold for engine priming and starting.  This two speed auxiliary/emergency fuel pump will not provide the engine with sufficient fuel flow or fuel pressure to run the engine if the engine driven fuel pump becomes inoperative in an emergency condition.  The airplane engine (Continental IO240B) will not continue to operate in flight.  The (engine's) manufacturer's representative says this is correct and (ultimately) is the airframe manufacturer's problem.  (In turn the manufacturer...) says the aircraft is certified—they don't seem able to answer very many questions.  (My) problem:  how did this aircraft become certified if it is in an unsafe condition?"

(Engine time: 1,046.0 hours.  Airframe time: 4,392.0 hours.  You pose a good question—one which cuts deeper than you may know—and you're stuck in the middle!  Most of us airplane types have "...been there, done that" too.  Reduced to fundamentals the conflict goes, "Mechanics can fix anything, but they are not to evaluate design."  Of course, this is oxymoronic, since the process of fixing anything often provides the best position and experience for that very same evaluation!  [See another example in this issue: Piper Gear Switch Failure.]  On the other hand, while I chuckle and laugh and build my experimental plane to my mechanic's standards, I'm secretly sweating the weight and balance bill due at the end of all that creative free will, notwithstanding whether or not the beast will even break free of the ground.  As you so aptly point out, communication feedback is the root of the problem.  Send me your name and e-mail:  I'll get you an answer--Ed.)

Part Total Time:  (unknown).

 

LEARJET

Learjet:  45; Failed Hydraulic Pressure Switch; ATA 2915

"The left hydraulic pressure switch (S9) failed in flight," says an anonymous mechanic, "resulting in loss of hydraulic fluid and failure of both left and right hydraulic pumps.  This necessitated a flight diversion to an alternate airport with an emergency declaration."  (Pressure Switch P/N:  7629001004-001.)

Part Total Time:  2,127.4 hours.

 

PIPER

Piper:  PA22-150; Incorrect Carburetor Heat Cable Clamp; ATA 7160

(A mechanic provides detailed analysis of two defects and their solutions.  These reports should be two separate submissions for data entry purposes; ergo, the second problem is not included in the heading...only one ATA code can be assigned, etc.  Nonetheless, both are excellent descriptions.)

"The aircraft's engine did not respond when power was applied on a low fly-by...causing the plane to land next to the runway in the snow, damaging the aircraft.  The following two problems were found on post incident inspection of the engine.  Either can contribute to or cause engine loss, (...even more so if both were to occur).

"The first problem found was a loose carburetor heat cable clamp on the cable housing.  This (condition) would allow the housing to slip in the clamp (and at some point prevent...) full cable travel from stop to stop.  (It was determined...) the wrong clamp was installed on the carburetor heat cable housing at the rear of the air box.  The installed clamp was P/N MS21919-DG3 (3/16 inch) diameter Adel clamp.  This clamp has a chloroprene rubber


cushion having a maximum temperature of 212 degrees Fahrenheit.   The outside cable housing measures 0.188 (3/16 inch) and the MIL-C-8603 specification states the inside diameter of the MS21919-DG3 Adel clamp is 0.188—only a few thousandths more and it won't hold very well.  The only way to have sufficient grip is for the tolerance to be near the plus 0.015 limit.  If the rubber gets oily, or deteriorates due to heat, fluid, or vibrations, the clamp can slip.

"The Piper part (P/N 80032-34) that is suppose to be used is a 0.030 inch thick steel clamp with an inside diameter of 0.188 (3/16 inch)  with two 0.125 (1/8 inch)  long notches that are 0.280 inches apart, penetrating 0.188 inches into the 0.188 inch diameter clamp 0.025 inches.  These 'notches' engage with the spiral wrapping of the cable housing with a + 0.025 and -- 0.0 tolerance, ensuring a positive engagement that will not deteriorate or slip.

"The second problem found was with the muffler end—the carburetor heat shroud (was receiving) a substantial exhaust leak.  The inside of the carburetor heat shroud, the scat hose, and the air box were very sooty from exhaust gasses.

"The exhaust muffler end (P/N 10308-03) that the exhaust pipe (P/N12043-23) slides into had a loose clamp (P/N14235-00)."  "This allowed a substantial amount of very hot Carbon Monoxide gasses to enter the induction system and reduce the oxygen rich induction air mixture.  This will cause a power loss do to the hot induction air, reducing the induction air density and further reducing it with gasses, moisture of combustion, and other pollutants.  The previous mixture will all cause an engine to stall at idle or very low power settings, and prevent its restarting due to carburetor icing, poor oxygen fuel ratio, and wet spark plugs.  Note:  This (situation) will make carburetor ice conditions every day."  (Air box assembly P/N 14253-04; Lycoming engine:  O-320)

Part Total Time:  (unknown).

 

Piper:  PA31-350; Failed Electrical Fuel Pump; ATA 2822

An unidentified mechanic relates the following description.  "(The aircraft was departing the field...) when he reported he lost substantial power to the left engine just after take off, and that the left low pressure fuel boost pump light on the aircraft annunciator panel illuminated.  He (effected a safe landing at an airport) and called for aircraft maintenance.  The aircraft technician on location could not find any problems with the engine during run-up other than the electric, low pressure fuel boost pump not supplying rated pressure.  (Note:  the electric, in-line low pressure boost pump is intended for flight above 15,000 feet MSL and can be deferred, as per our Part 91 MEL (minimum equipment list).  The aircraft (initiated its take-off roll for departure...) when the left engine again lost power at (approximately) 40 knots airspeed.   (Subsequent) trouble shooting of the engine fuel pump and fuel nozzles revealed no problems.  The in-line low pressure fuel pump was removed (revealing) the bypass valve assembly in the pump had dislodged from the pump body and acted as a fuel (flow) restriction to the emergency electric fuel pump.  We have been operating the Piper Navajo Chieftain aircraft for 20 years and have never seen this happen until now."

Piper:  PA32R-301T; Failing Main Gear Down-Lock Switch; ATA 3297

(The following combines five reports on four PA32 aircraft—all from the same mechanic.)

This aircraft's "...main gear down lock switch wires pull tight on the strut during retraction, pulling wire strands apart to the breaking point.  The silicone type wire coating tends to hold the wire ends together, creating intermittent contact.  (This assembly) needs better wire and routing."

(Oops!  There's that "design discussion" again from the Diamond report, this issue.  Wire P/N:  153-615.   Switch P/N not provided.)

Part Total Time:  399.8 hours (average).

 

POWERPLANTS

CONTINENTAL

Continental:  IO-470-VO; Broken Piston Skirt; ATA 8530

A mechanic writes, "The left engine (on this Cessna 310) was exhibiting low oil pressure.  The oil filter was pulled, cut open, and inspected.  A significant amount of metal was found.  The engine was then torn down for further inspection.  Chunks of piston skirting was found in the oil pan,  the number 2 piston had come apart at the skirting around the bottom ring-land below the piston pin,  and the number 1 piston was found to be cracked in the same area where piston 2 was broken.  (The latter was taken by the FAA for metallurgical testing.)  A possible contributing factor may have been the start of the engine at a temperature near zero degrees Fahrenheit."

(Piston P/N: AEC648029.  There are 5 entries for this pump in the FAA Service Difficulty Reporting System (SDRS) database.)

Part Total Time:  933.4 hours.

INTERNET SERVICE DIFFICULTY REPORTING (iSDR) WEB SITE

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Internet Service Difficulty Reporting (iSDR) web site is the front-end for the Service Difficulty Reporting System (SDRS) database that is maintained by the Aviation Data Systems Branch, AFS-620, in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. The iSDR web site supports the Flight Standards Service (AFS), Service Difficulty Program by providing the aviation community with a voluntary and electronic means to conveniently submit in-service reports of failures, malfunctions, or defects on aeronautical products. The objective of the Service Difficulty Program is to achieve prompt correction of conditions adversely affecting continued airworthiness of aeronautical products. To accomplish this, Malfunction or Defect Reports (M or Ds) or Service Difficulty Reports (SDRs) as they are commonly called, are collected, converted into a common SDR format, stored, and made available to the appropriate segments of the FAA, the aviation community, and the general public for review and analysis. SDR data is accessible through the “Query SDR data” feature on the iSDR web site at: http://av-info.faa.gov/sdrx/Query.aspx .

In the past, the last two pages of the Alerts contained a paper copy of FAA Form 8010-4, Malfunction or Defect Report. To meet the requirements of *Section 508, this form will no longer be published in the Alerts; however, the form is available on the Internet at: http://forms.faa.gov/forms/faa8010‑4.pdf . You can still download and complete the form as you have in the past.

*Section 508 was enacted to eliminate barriers in information technology, to make available new opportunities for people with disabilities, and to encourage development of technologies that will help achieve these goals.


A report should be filed whenever a system, component, or part of an aircraft, powerplant, propeller, or appliance fails to function in a normal or usual manner. In addition, if a system, component, or part of an aircraft, powerplant, propeller, or appliance has a flaw or imperfection, which impairs or may impair its future function, it is considered defective and should be reported under the Service Difficulty Program.

The collection, collation, analysis of data, and the rapid dissemination of mechanical discrepancies, alerts, and trend information to the appropriate segments of the FAA and the aviation community provides an effective and economical method of ensuring future aviation safety.

The FAA analyzes SDR data for safety implications and reviews the data to identify possible trends that may not be apparent regionally or to individual operators. As a result, the FAA may disseminate safety information to a particular section of the aviation community. The FAA also may adopt new regulations or issue airworthiness directives (ADs) to address a specific problem.

The iSDR web site provides an electronic means for the general aviation community to voluntarily submit reports, and may serve as an alternative means for operators and air agencies to comply with the reporting requirements of 14 Title of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Section 121.703, 125.409, 135.415, and 145.221, if accepted by their certificate-holding district office. FAA Aviation Safety Inspectors may also report service difficulty information when they conduct routine aircraft maintenance surveillance as well as accident and incident investigations.

The SDRS database contains records dating back to 1974. At the current time, we are receiving approximately 40,000 records per year. Reports may be submitted to the iSDR web site on active data entry form or submitted hardcopy to the address below.
