ENGINE CONTROLSMAINTENANCE PRACTICES


1. General
Maintenance of the engine controls consists of performing a rigging check, rigging the coordinator
linkages, propeller beta control valve replacement, and propeller blade angle adjustment.
A. Rigging Check
Check the rigging of the aircraft and engine controls after removal or replacement of the engine,
coordinator, fuel control or propellerpower turbine governor. Make the rigging check with the
engine shut down. Use the following procedure.
(1) Check the cockpit power levertocoordinator relationship. The MAX REVERSE, GROUND
IDLE and TAKEOFF positions on the power lever quadrant must coincide with the 0, 30 and
95 positions respectively on the coordinator protractor within 1.
(2) Check to ensure that the power turbine lever on the propellerpower turbine governor
assembly and the gas producer lever on the gas producer fuel control are against their
maximum speed stops when the power lever is at the TAKEOFF position.
(3) Retard the power lever to the position which provides the maximum reset of the gas producer
lever. In this position the gas producer lever moves toward the maximum speed stop when the
power lever is advanced or retarded. Check to ensure that the lever is approximately 3/16 in.
(5 mm) from the minimum speed stop.
(4) Retard the power lever to the MAX REVERSE position. Check to ensure that the power
turbine lever is approximately 1/8 in. (3 mm) from the maximum speed stop.
(5) Check the cockpit levertopropellerpower turbine governor relationship. With the condition
lever at the maximum (100% propeller speed) position, the propeller governor lever on the
governor assembly must be against the maximum speed stop.
(6) Move the condition lever to the FUEL OFFFEATHER position. The propeller governor lever
must be against the minimum speed stop.
(7) Check to ensure that the fuel cutoff lever on the fuel control is in the cutoff detent.
(8) Looseness encountered in the rigging must be minimized by replacement of worn items and/or
accuracy of the rigging. Looseness that cannot be removed must be within limits.
NOTE: Make rigging adjustments on aircraft having dual controls using pilot controls.
Recheck the linkage movement using copilot controls. The limits are applicable to
both sets of controls.
(9) Check for freedom of movement, security of linkage and excessive control lever forces in the
control system linkage. Check for tight control system rod end bearings if excessive control
lever forces are encountered and the aircraft control system is found not to be contributory.
NOTE: Ensure that the aircraft control system is not contributing to the high control lever
forces.
(a) Disconnect the rod end from the engine component and check breakaway torque. If high
breakaway torque is encountered, proceed to step (2).
NOTE: The rod end need not be removed from the connecting rod or cable in most
instances.
(b) Insert a suitable bolt in the disconnected end and secure with a nut.
(c) Chuck the bolt in a hand or power operated drill.
(d) Operate the drill at 1000 rpm or less for a period of one to two minutes.
NOTE: The use of abrasives, lubricants or cooling water is not required or
recommended.

(e) Remove the nut and bolt and test for breakaway torque. If necessary, repeat step (d)
until desired breakaway torque is obtained.
(f) Reinstall the rod end to the designated engine component.
(g) Recheck control lever rigging. Correct as required.
(10) If no discrepancies were found in the rigging, perform an idle speed check. (Refer to Ground
Idle Speed Setting, para 3.A. 732002.) If discrepancies were found, correct as required
then proceed with the idle speed setting check.
B. Propeller Blade Angle Setting
Set the propeller blade angle as follows:
(1) Place the coordinator power lever in the 40 position (FLIGHT IDLE).
(2) Place the coordinator condition lever in the maximum rearward position (rotated clockwise).
The propellerpower turbine governor assembly (referred to as governor assembly) propeller
governor lever will be at the maximum speed stop (fully rotated clockwise).
(3) Disconnect the air line at the Py elbow of the governor assembly (See Figure 201, 730000).
Cap the opening.
(4) Disconnect the oil line at the propeller control oil port of the governor assembly. Connect a
regulated air or nitrogen supply of 100120 psi (689827 kPa) to the open port.
(5) Apply pneumatic pressure and adjust the blade angle setting nut to achieve the required flight
idle blade angle that is approved for the particular installation
NOTE: Turn nut clockwise to increase blade angle. One turn equals approximately one
degree blade angle.
(6) Cycle coordinator power lever. Return to the 40 position.
(7) Remeasure the blade angle and adjust as necessary in accordance with step (5).
(8) Disconnect the pressurizing equipment from the governor assembly propeller control oil port.
The propeller will automatically go to the feather position because of internal spring forces.
Reconnect oil line to the port.
WARNING: FAILURE TO PROPERLY INSTALL, ALIGN AND TIGHTEN FUEL, OIL, AND AIR
FITTINGS AND TUBES COULD RESULT IN AN ENGINE FAILURE.
(9) Remove cap and reconnect Py air line to the Py pressure port of the governor assembly.
C. Alternate Setting Procedure
The following procedure may be used as an alternate method for setting the propeller blade angle.
(1) Place the coordinator power lever in the 40 position (Flight Idle).
(2) Place the coordinator condition lever in the maximum rearward position (rotated clockwise).
The propellerpower turbine governor assembly (referred to as governor assembly) propeller
governor lever will be at the maximum speed stop (fully rotated clockwise).
(3) Hold the feedback rod sleeve hard forward against the locknut (See Figure 201).
(4) Adjust the blade angle setting locknut to obtain a clearance of 1.851.90 in. (47.048.3 mm)
for 6 blade angle and 1.751.80 in. (44.845.7 mm) for 10 blade angle between the rear of
the sleeve and the forward face of the pilot tube.
(5) Conduct an engine run and check propeller rpm at Flight Idle. Propeller speed may range from
5969% depending upon ambient temperature, various propeller models and aircraft
installation. (Refer to applicable aircraft maintenance manual.) Turn locknut (step d)
clockwise to increase blade angle and reduce N2 rpm. One turn equals approximately 3% N2
rpm change.
