A300/A310 Hydraulic System - Fluid/Pipes and Component/Accessories


Hydraulic Fluids
General
The hydraulic fluid used on the A300-600 is HYJET IV-A. This
fluid is more temperature tolerant than HYJET IV. When
servicing the hydraulic system of the A300-600 aircraft, HYJET
IV-A should be used whenever possible.
Rigid Pipes
Rigid pipes are identified in conformance with NSA0140 and 0141
by:
The Part Number (e.g. A2913161502300)
An NSA0143 label identifying the pipe as an hydraulic pipe
(black dots), its function (e.g. CASE DRAIN) and the direction of
fluid flow (arrow)
An NSA0144 label identifying the system, comprising a colored
band (Green, Blue, Yellow) plus the figure 1, 2 or 3 indicating the
Green, Blue or Yellow system, respectively.
-

Long pipes are identified at both ends.

Components and Accessories


Hydraulic components and accessories are identified in conformance
with NSA0140 by a 4-figure item number called out on the hydraulic
Functional Diagram. The numbers are on placards; one affixed on
the component or accessory itself, and one on the support on which
the component or accessory is mounted.
In the case of manifold-mounted components, the identification
placards are affixed on each component and on that part of the
manifold receiving the component. (When the component is too
small, the indication is marked directly on the component).
All fittings on components or accessories are identified by an
engraved letter indicated on the hydraulic Functional Diagram.
Components are also identified by two NSA9000 placards:
a purple placard identifying the hydraulic fluid
a placard bearing the component designation.

Flexible Hoses
Flexible hoses are identified in conformance with NSA0140 and 0142
by:
A purple metal or heat shrinkable sleeve indicating the fluid used
is a phosphate ester to NSA307.110
The Part Number which appears either on the purple sleeve or
on a separate metal sleeve.

A300/A310 Hydraulic System Connections/Mounting - Sealing Bobbins


BOBBIN TYPE CONNECTOR
Use on the pressure and return systems of manifolds on which a
maximum number of components are installed by means of sealing
bobbins and mounts (filters, pressure relief valves, priority valves,
pressure switches, electrovalves...) ensures longer life of the pipes and
fittings (which are not handled when components are removed), limits the
risk of leakage and facilitates maintenance.

MTT M540000 / R3.3 01AUG01


For Training Purposes Only

Refer to illustration for component-to-mounting connection principle by


means of a bobbin.
The bobbins are equipped with one square seal on component side and
one 0-ring on mounting side. An identification groove is provided for fool
proofing. Whenever a component is removed, the bobbin is held in the
component by the square seal. If the component is not immediately
reinstalled, the open port can be easily blanked off by means of a
plug/cap.

A300/A310 Green - Blue - Yellow Hydraulic Systems - General


The aircraft has three completely independent hydraulic systems, which
operate simultaneously. They are designated BLUE, GREEN, YELLOW.
Each system is supplied from its own hydraulic reservoir. There are no
provisions for routing of hydraulic fluid from one system to the other.

Four identical engine driven hydraulic pumps, 2 on each engine,


pressurize the systems with a delivery pressure of 3000 PSI:
-

GREEN
BLUE
YELLOW

Hydraulic power is fed directly to the servo controls manifolds and then to
the high pressure manifolds, which are permanently linked. The servo
control manifolds supply the primary flight controls and spoilers through a
servo controls selector valve.

2 pumps, one on each engine.


1 pump on engine 1.
1 pump on engine 2.

The high pressure manifolds are equipped with a priority valve which
isolates slat, flap and gear operating systems, when the pressure has
dropped below 1885 PSI which gives priority to Flight Controls. (See
chapter FLIGHT CONTROLS for detailed information).

Two non-reversible power transfer units are installed to provide for power
transfer without fluid exchange, from the GREEN system to the BLUE or
to the YELLOW system. They are required in case of power generation
failure (for example, in case of engine failure or engine pump failure) and
also for ground testing.

In the event of engine fire the engine driven pumps are isolated from
their hydraulic reservoirs by the FIRE VALVES. When an ENG FIRE
handle is pulled, the respective valves close. In the yellow system, the
FIRE valve closes also in case of LO LVL. The position of the FIRE
VALVES is indicated on the lateral panel.

If the engine driven pumps are not available, hydraulic power may also
be generated by:
-

Two electric pumps in the GREEN system (primarily intended for


ground testing').

MTT M540000 / R3.3 01AUG01


For Training Purposes Only

One electric pump in the YELLOW system to pressurize the brake


accumulators (Parking /ALTN-OFF brakes), if required, or to operate

A hand pump in the YELLOW system to operate the main cargo
compartment doors when the YELLOW electric pump is not
available.

A300 G-B-Y Hydraulic Systems - Reservoirs and Capacities - General Features


Purpose
. Each hydraulic system includes a reservoir which compensates for variations in fluid volume due to user service operation, and provides a
reserve supply of fluid.
The volume of fluid in each system, including the fluid in the reservoir,
is approximately 180 l (47.5 US Gal) for the Green system, 90 l
(23.7 US Gal) for the Blue system and 130 l (34.3 US Gal) for the Yellow
system.
. The three reservoirs are air-pressurized to 3.5 bars (50.8 psi)
relative.
. Each reservoir is designed to remain pressurized for at least 12 hours.
Description
. The reservoirs are attached to the aircraft structure by two clampsecured straps. They each consist of a sheet steel cylinder with a
mol d e d l i g h t a l l o y b a s e . C y l i n d e r d i a m e t e r i s t h e s a m e f o r e a c h r e s e r voir. Their relative capacities are therefore determined by
their
height.

Purpose
- To ensure in each hydraulic reservoir an air pressure of 3 to 3.5 bars
(43.5 to 50.7 psi) relative so as to prevent cavitation of pumps on the
ground and throughout the whole flight envelope.
- To maintain the reservoir sufficiently air-tight in the event of failure
of the pressurization system or after engine shut-down.
Description
- The same system pressurizes the three hydraulic reservoirs by means of
air bled from the 14 th stage (GE engines) of the L engine HP compressor
or from the air bleed system, or, when the engines are shut down, from the
down, from the connector on the Blue system ground service panel.

A300/A310 RH ECAM Hydraulic Fluid Reservoir - Quantity Indication


SERVICING

ACTION

The top of the upper Green arcs on the overhead indicators are NOT the
"full marks" for the systems. The upper Green arcs are intended to show
the normal service range with the aircraft on the ground. This service
range allows for the normal thermal expansion of the hydraulic fluid.

The ECAM hydraulics page should always be consulted before changing


the level in the hydraulic fluid reservoirs. The ECAM quantity indication
should be considered correct for all A300-600R and A310-200 series
aircraft.

The hydraulic fluid has an average coefficient of thermal expansion of


0.00085 per degree C. An aircraft might indicate a fluid level near the
bottom of the normal service range after an overnight stay at EWR
(Newark) (20F/-7C). The same aircraft, with no reservoir servicing,
could indicate an hydraulic fluid level near the top of the normal service
range after an overnight at IAH (Houston) (86F/30C).

If the triangular pointer is in the normal service range on the ECAM


hydraulics page, the fluid level in the hydraulic reservoirs should be
considered normal. The ECAM normal service range corresponds to the
upper Green arcs on the later overhead indicators.
If an hydraulic reservoir requires service, it should be filled only to the full
mark corresponding to that system on the ground servicing panel. Never
fill the reservoirs above the full level indicated on the Green ground
service panel. If a reservoir is over-filled while being serviced, it should
be drained to the proper level. Over-filling a system will cause additional
maintenance and could damage the reservoir.

FedEx A310-200 series aircraft were acquired with two types of flight
deck Overhead Panel Hydraulic Fluid Quantity Indicators. The upper
Green arcs on the indicators on older aircraft are smaller than those used
on later A310 aircraft.

A300/A310 Green Auxiliary Hydraulic Power - Description


DESCRIPTION

Both electric pumps draw fluid from the Green system reservoir, and are
of the soft compensation type. They are used mainly on the ground, for
testing or pre-flight check list procedures, but can also be used in flight,
at the crew's discretion, to boost fluid flow. However, such cases of
utilization are never of a mandatory nature.

Two parallel-mounted electric pumps supply power:


-

To the Green system, directly,


To the Blue and Yellow systems, through Green/Blue and
Green/Yellow power transfer units.

LOCATION
Installed in the fuselage center section (hydraulics compartment) on the
ceiling, between FR52 and FR53.

Blue Auxiliary Hydraulic Power System


DESCRIPTION

CONTROL

The Green/Blue power transfer unit is composed of an hydraulic motor


driving an hydraulic pump by means of a mechanical liaison (shaft).

The transfer unit is started by means of a PTU pushbutton switch located


on overhead panel 427VU (the transfer unit is activated when the
pushbutton switch is pressed in).

The motor operates off fluid supplied from the Green system; the pump
pressurizes the Blue system and draws its fluid from the Blue system
reservoir. This system allows transfer of power, while maintaining
independence of the fluid sources. A solenoid or motor-controlled flow
shut off valve integral with the motor enables activation or deactivation of
the transfer unit.

Location Installation LH Wing Inboard Wing Root Area


The power transfer unit is located in the L wing triangular bay (Blue
hydraulics compartment). It is attached through flexible fittings to a rigid
mount, integral with the aircraft structure.

The transfer unit is used mainly on the ground to pressurize the Blue
system by means of the Green system, which is itself pressurized by the
Green system electric pumps or by a ground power cart. It may also be
used in flight to compensate for failure of the Blue system engine pump.

All lines connected to the motor (pressure, return, case drain) and to the
pump (suction, pressure, case drain) are teflon hoses covered with
stainless steel braid.
The transfer unit is installed with respect to the Blue system reservoir in
such a way that there is a constant head of fluid.

Transfer unit operation is initiated by commanding opening of the motor


section solenoid-controlled flow shut off valve.

The transfer unit is started up by means of a PTU pushbutton switch


located on overhead panel 427VU, (the transfer unit is activated when
the pushbutton switch is pressed in).

To prevent transfer unit overspeed occurring in the event of a Blue


system pressure line rupture, the motor section includes a flow limiter.
LOCATION - INSTALLATION
The power transfer unit is located in the wing center box, at FR53, on the
left side of the fuselage. It is attached through flexible fittings to a rigid
mount, integral with the aircraft structure.
All lines connected to the motor (pressure, return, case drain) and to the
pump (suction, pressure, case drain) are Teflon hoses covered with
stainless steel braid.

Green/Blue or Green/Yellow Power Transfer Units (PTUs) - General


Each PTU consists of a hydraulic motor driven by GREEN hydraulic
pressure, and a hydraulic pump in the receiving system. Motor and pump
are connected by a drive shaft.

HIGH PRESSURE MANIFOLD EQUIPMENT

Each motor has an electrovalve which controls pressurized GREEN


hydraulic supply to the motor, the GREEN pressure being generated by
the engine pump or the Green electric pumps.

The nominal output of the pump in the BLUE or in the YELLOW system
is 23.7 gal/min (90 ltr/min) at a pressure of 2500 PSI. With no flow
demand the pressure is 3000 PSI. Each motor in the GREEN system
requires 29.3 gal/min (111 ltr/min) at 3000 PSI to produce the nominal
pump output. Only one PTU may be operated at a time.

Each high pressure manifold is equipped with:


one pressure switch
one pressure transmitter
an over-pressure relief/manual relief valve (manual relief on ground
only)
a priority valve.

Each PTU is controlled by a pushbutton switch on the HYD PWR section


of the overhead panel, which operates the motor electrovalve. A PTU
may be used in flight in case of hydraulic power generation failure in the
BLUE or the YELLOW system. On the ground, with the GREEN system
pressurized by both electric pumps, they are used to pressurize the
BLUE or the YELLOW system for maintenance purpose.
Electrical power for both PTU solenoid valves is from the 28 DC normal
bus.

These filters are of the non bypassing type, with a clogging indicator set
to operate at 6 bars (87 PSI) 10%. Filtering capability is 3 to 15 microns
(0.0001 in. to 0.0006 in.) absolute.
An automatic shutoff mechanism in the filters prevents any leakage and
any fluid flow between the filter inlet and outlet when the bowl and filter
element are removed and prevents ingress of air into the system when
the filter is installed. Filter elements may be either cleanable or
disposable.

Operation of the control surfaces even with in-flight engine failure, by


means of the ram air turbine
Alternate braking and parking
On ground operation of the cargo compartment doors.

A. Supplied through the servo controls manifold (or through wing and aft
fuselage isolation valves).

The three functions above correspond to three sections of the HP


manifold.

A. The flight controls section receives pressure through the servo


controls manifold, from engine 2 pump, the RAT and the ground
connector. It can be pressurized directly through a filter by the
Green/Yellow power transfer unit. It supplies the flap power control
unit Yellow hydraulic motor through a priority valve and includes the
same components as the other HP manifolds.
B. The monitoring section is supplied by the other two sections through
two check valves and includes two brake Yellow power
accumulators, similar to but of a larger capacity than the hydraulic
system power accumulators, a pressure transmitter and a brake
Yellow pressure relief valve with manual depressurization feature.

B. Supplied through the HP manifold:

Yellow System - ABEX Electric Hydraulic Pump


The YELLOW system is provided with a self-regulating hydraulic pump,
which is driven by an AC motor. The nominal output flow of 1.6 gal/min (6
ltr/min) is delivered at 2850 PSI. The pump is controlled by the PARKING
BRAKE ACCU PRESS pushbutton on the center pedestal, near the
PARKING BRAKE control handle, and by the OPEN/CLOSE selectors
located adjacent to the main cargo compartment doors.
Pressurization of the complete YELLOW system by the electric pump is
prevented by manifold check valves. When the PARKING BRAKE ACCU
PRESS pushbutton is operated or when an OPEN/CLOSE cargo door
selection is made, the parking /ALTN--OFF brakes accumulators and the
main cargo compartment door operation circuit only are pressurized.

A300/A310 Hydraulic System Filter Bowls - Maintenance Practices Information


Subject: AIRBUS HYDRAULIC SYSTEM FILTER BOWLS
Title: Aircraft Maintenance Practices- Hydraulic System Filter Bowl Maintenance
Practices The purpose of document is to inform all FedEx Aircraft Maintenance
Personnel on the Removal and Installation of Hydraulic System Filter Bowls, 0Rings (Packings) and Torquing of Filter Bowls on the Airbus Fleet aircraft.
Improper procedures affect Airbus aircraft reliability and costs FedEx money in
Delays and Cancellations.

HISTORY: The Airbus Fleet previously experienced various problems with


installed filter bowls and filter bowl 0-Rings (Packings). The main leakage areas
are the Left and Right Main Gear Wheel Wells (Hydraulic Bay). One of the main
problem(s) that we are experiencing during the last several months are the filter
bowls and filter bowl housing assemblies leaking and damaged from improper
installation techniques. The majority of the Green I Blue I Yellow Systems filter
housings and bowls are located on the High Pressure Manifolds, Servo Control
Manifolds and Return Manifolds which are located in the Hydraulic Bay.

The filter bowls and filter bowl housings have been cracked due to improper
torquing of the filter bowl after servicing with a new filter and O-Rings. Upon reinstallation of the filter bowl into the filter housing assembly, the bowl is over
tightened by hand or over torqued beyond prescribed Aircraft Maintenance
Manual (AMM) limits in the applicable ATA Chapter.

Due to the over torqued condition, 0-Ring damage, flight conditions, ground
static conditions, fuselage wind vibrations during landing gear retraction and
extension cycles, climatic conditions and other factors involved results in a
hydraulic leak. The hydraulic leak develops and is found during ground checks
by the aircraft maintenance or flight crews. If both crew(s) do not notice the
hydraulic leak in the leak area before flight, the aircraft will suffer a ground delay
or flight cancellation until the leak source is corrected and pressure checked per
AMM procedures..
WHY HYDRAULIC LEAKS: The hydraulic leaks that are affecting Airbus Fleet
reliability are due to some of the following condition(s):

Improper filter bowl installation after filter replacement (Possibly cuts on


new 0-Ring due to filter bowl reinstallation into filter housing assembly)
Lack of AMM prescribed lubricant for new 0-Ring I Packing during
reassembly of filter
Loose fittings and/or damaged fittings (cracked and scored flare areas)
on filter housing assembly (Improper visual check of component
attachments during disassembly)
Loose filter housing mounting bolts (Failure to check bolts for security)
Worn mating surface on filter bowls and housing assemblies (Failure to
check on disassembly procedure)
Worn threads on the filter bowl and/or housing assembly (Failure to
check on disassembly procedure I Visual Check)
Cracked filter bowls and filter housing assemblies (Due to over forgoing
of filter bowls) New 0Rings (Packings) damaged during build-up of the
filter bowl (Improper procedures and lack of proper tooling for installing
new 0-Rings) (See AMM Chapter 20-23-16)
Filter bowl 0-Ring missing, reused 0-Ring, damaged 0-Ring (Cuts,
tears, worn) (Due to improper procedures during previous filter element
servicing)
Insufficient torque on filter bowls and housing hardware during
installation procedures (Failure to use torque wrench, wrong torque
value or improper forgoing procedures)
Improper leak check of hydraulic filter bowl and housing assembly
during system pressurized conditions (Good visual checks are worth
the time)
Lack of pressurized leak check upon completion of new filter element
servicing

PROACTIVE CORRECTIVE ACTIONS: Apply sound maintenance procedures


per AMM during disassembly and reassembly of the filter element during filter
servicing maintenance. If all of the above conditions) in "Why Hydraulic Leaks"
paragraph were prevented during new filter element servicing or filter housing
maintenance, there should be no hydraulic leaks, except for material I
component defects.
Finally, if you have followed the AMM procedures, our hydraulic leaks can be
"cured by you". Most of all you have increased the FedEx Airbus Fleet Reliability
level for our valued customers. You have also saved money for FedEx by
preventing Delays and/or Cancellations of scheduled revenue flights by applying
the P-S-P Philosophy.

A300/A310 Hydraulic System Filters - Return Line Filter


The Return Line Filters are located near each reservoir on a Return
Manifold.
One on each line comprising a 3 (0.0001 in.) absolute filter element
(disposable type only), a clogging indicator (set to operate at 3 0.5
bars) (43.8 7.3 psi), bypass system (setting: 5 0.5 bars) (73 7.3
psi), and a dash-pot on clogging indicator supply line.
The filters also have an automatic shut off mechanism to facilitate
removal.
Clogging Indicator
When the filter is clogged, the increase in differential pressure causes
the protrusion of a red colored button, visible through a transparent
frame.
The filter element must be replaced as soon as possible. The clogging
indicator is reset by simply removing the transparent frame and pressing
the indicator button.
In low temperature conditions, clogging indicator operation is inhibited
(thermostatic locking at 0 2C (32.9 3.6F) with unlocking at 30C
(86F).
Return Manifolds
The return manifolds receive return fluid separately from the user
services and case drains through check valves (except in the case of the
servo controls to allow interconnection of the servo control chambers in
the event of loss of pressure in the associated system).
Fluid is returned to the reservoir through the return filter, located near
the reservoir.
The return manifolds are located near the HP manifolds (only the Yellow
system manifolds are located away from the reservoir).

A300/A310 Hydraulic Rudder Servo Control - Integral Protective Filters


General Description

The two filters serve two purposes:

The Servo Control Units (Actuators) for the All Speed


Ailerons (ASA), Elevators and Rudder have two integral
protective filters installed in the actuator body unit adjacent
to the pressure and return port areas. Also, other hydraulic
servo valves may have this feature.

Filter all fluid entering the servo control module and


actuator body areas. The controls modules delicate and
precision machined areas require the highest degree of
internal filtration to prevent internal jamming and/or
passage way blockage.

The two filters are installed in the pressure inlet and return
outlet ports of the actuator body units. These fine wire mesh
filters filter out hydraulic fluid foreign matter prior to entering
the servo control module.

Filter all fluid leaving or exiting the servo control module


and actuator body areas. During tear down for fault
analysis and/or component overhaul purposes, this will
provide positive identification of internal failure or
malfunctioning of the servo control unit internal functions.

All hydraulic fluid leaving the control module, piston ram


area, and internal lines/passages is filtered by the second
filter in the return (outlet) area.
The tow internal filters are not line replaceable units. If one
or both of the filters have internal blockage, the complete
servo control unit must be replaced.

MTT M540000 / R3.3 01AUG01


For Training Purposes Only

Additional troubleshooting feature is extreme heating at


either or both of the two internal filter locations can possibly
identify blockage of the filter. This is identified by excessive
heat or loud audible hissing sound.

A300/A310 Hydraulic System - Filter Clogging Indicator

Checks
The removal/installation procedure for each filter element is
described in the relevant ATA section (Ref. P. Block 301 - Servicing).

The clogging indicator is reset by simply removing the transparent cap


and pressing the indicator button.

Check of clogging indicators


- indicator in
= filter in good condition
- indicator protruding = filter clogged.

In low temperature conditions, clogging indicator operation is inhibited


(thermostatic locking at 32.9 3.6F (0 2C) with unlocking at 86F
(30C).

If an indicator is protruding (color red or blue according to the type of


filter) it is necessary to check the filter element in order to determine the
causes of contamination and also whether it is necessary to reclaim
system fluid totally or partially. (Ref. 12-36-29, P. Block 1).
When the filter is clogged, the increase in differential pressure causes
the protrusion of a red colored button, visible through a transparent cap.
The filter element must be replaced as soon as possible.

A300/A310 Yellow Hydraulic System - Ram Air Turbine (RAT) - General


The ram air turbine (RAT) is used in the event of failure of both engines,
to supply emergency hydraulic power to the Yellow Hydraulic System
Primary Flight Controls.
It is composed of:
- A hinged support strut
- A two-bladed turbine
- A variable displacement hydraulic pump
- A linkage connecting the assembly to the doors.
- An uplock mechanism
- An ejection jack
- A ground checkout module
The ram air turbine is normally retracted and held in this position by an
uplock mechanism.
Ejection is initiated by mechanical release of the uplock mechanism, and
is continued by a mechanical ejection jack. Stowage of the RAT in its
compartment is achieved manually on the ground.

Yellow Hydraulic System - Ram Air Turbine


The RAT may be ejected throughout the Whole Flight Envelope, Normal
and Peripheral.
The RAT is used to supply emergency hydraulic power to the Yellow
Hydraulic System for aircraft control purposes. If two or all Hydraulic
Systems (Green, Blue and/or Yellow (G-B-Y) Systems) have failed or in
case of Engine 1 and 2 FlameOuts, the RAT System can be used for
Yellow System Flight Control purposes.
The RAT is a self-regulating Hydraulic Pump driven by a constant speed
propeller. It is connected to the Yellow Hydraulic System and will
pressurize the system when the RAT is extended into the airstream.
The RAT consists of a Constant Pressure, Variable Displacement
Hydraulic Pump that can supply the Yellow Hydraulic System throughout
the above envelope, 3028 PSI +44 PSI (206 +3, -0 Bars at Zero Delivery
and > 2837 PSI (>193 Bars) at Full Delivery: 16.9 US Gallons Per
Minute (45 Liters Per Minute). Note: One Bar equals 14.7 PSI and One
US Gallon equals 3.785 Liters for calculation purposes.
The above Delivery / Pressure Performance is met for the following limit
configurations of the aircraft:

Airspeed of 360 Knots with a +/- 2 Degrees Skid Angle


Airspeed of 130 Knots with a +/- 5 Degrees Skid Angle

Response Time (Time between the Uplock Release Manual Command


and the appearance of Nominal Pressure in the RAT Pump Delivery
Pressure Line) is less than (<) 6.5 Seconds.

Two RAT Handles are installed in the Flight Compartment, One on each
Side Console. The A300-600 RAT Handles are flush mounted on the
SideWalls above the LH/RH Side Consoles aft end. The A310-200
Series are mounted on the LH/RH Side Consoles on the aft end with
vertical handles.
Operation of either RAT Handle mechanically UNLOCKS the RAT. The
Ejection Jack (Actuator) extends the RAT by internal spring force and
fluid dampens out the downward ejection force to the LOCK position.
The RAT Compartment Fairing Doors are OPENED at the same time
during the RAT Extension Cycle; the Fairing Doors (LH and RH Doors)
are mechanically linked with the RAT Unit. The RAT is LOCKED in the
DOWN Position once it is extended from the Flight Compartment and
cannot be RETRACTED. The RAT can only be RESTOWED when the
aircraft is on the ground. The Restow Procedure requires at least two
people to restow it for safety purposes since the Ejection Jack is spring
loaded to the downward position.
NOTE: There is no Indication Light or RH ECAM HYD Page Indication
when the RAT is accidentally EXTENDED in flight, when the Yellow
Hydraulic System Engine Driven Pump (EDP) and Green/Yellow Power
Transfer Unit (PTU) are switched OFF.
The Hydraulic Pressure in the Yellow Servo Controls Manifold will
indicate approximately 2875 PSI from the RAT Hydraulic Pump Power
Generation in the extended position during flight condition.

The RAT is fixed to an extendible strut stowed in the RAT Compartment


located in the Lower Right Wing Root adjacent to the RH Main Gear and
Hydraulic Compartment (RH Main Gear Wheel Well).

The hydraulic system reservoirs on this aircraft can be serviced in one of
two ways:
1.

Using an hydraulic tank replenishing unit

2.

Using the built in hand pump and servicing hose for extracting clean,
serviceable hydraulic fluid from containers (one quart and gallon
cans, etc.) The hand pump and servicing hose are located behind
and forward of the green hydraulic system servicing panel, on the LH
side of the fuselage, aft of the LH main gear wheel well.

Step 3 - Requires two people. The first person pressurizes the over-serviced system in the flight compartment utilizing
the green hydraulic system (if over-serviced). The green system may be pressurized for the blue or yellow system
power transfer unit pressurizing the affected over-serviced system. Also, observes the fluid quantity on the overhead
HYD PWR panel 429VU. The second person pulls down on the special draining tool to release hydraulic fluid from the
Sampling valve. The fluid is drained into a suitable container which can hold 5 US gallons (20 liters). When the
hydraulic quantity indicates the proper level, turn off the hydraulic pumps and release pressure from drain tool.
Reinstall sampling valve cap and lockwire.
