ENGINE CONTROL LINKAGESMAINTENANCE PROCEDURES


1. General
Maintenance of the engine control linkages consists of rigging the linkages between the coordinator and
the engine mounted controls. Rigging of the linkages shall be accomplished any time the coordinator,
fuel control, or propellerpower turbine governor is removed or replaced.
2. Coordinator Rigging (See Figure 201)
Coordinator rigging is divided into five separate procedures; one for each output lever of the coordinator
assembly.
A. Procedure A Power Turbine Governor Lever
The propellerpower turbine governor lever (Figure 202) is connected to the power turbine lever on
the propellerpower turbine governor assembly (referred to as governor assembly) as follows:
(1) Retain the power turbine governor cable to the engine with supports at the coordinator
housing, fire shield, and power and accessory gearbox. Retain the cable to the fuel
controltogovernor Py air tube with two clamps.
NOTE: Always install the cable using the maximum possible bend radii.
(2) Rotate the input power lever on the coordinator counterclockwise until the lever pointer is
aligned with the 95 (TAKEOFF) position on the protractor.
(3) Ensure that the power turbine lever on the governor assembly is against the maximum speed
stop. The lever is spring loaded toward the stop.
(4) Attach the power turbine governor cable to coordinator lever A with a bolt and nut. Tighten nut
to 1035 lb in. (1.13.9 N.m) and secure with a cotter key.
(5) Adjust cable length (rotate rod end) until the hole in the rod end and governor assembly power
turbine lever align. Make this cable adjustment with the power turbine lever loaded against the
maximum speed stop. Take up cable looseness by compression. Attach the cable to the lever
with a bolt, washer, and nut. Tighten nut to 1035 lb in. (1.13.9 N.m) and secure with a cotter
key.
(6) Ensure that the threaded ends of the cable extend into the rod ends past the inspection hole to
assure adequate thread engagement; then lockwire the jam nuts.
(7) Rotate the coordinator input power lever fully clockwise. The lever pointer should be aligned
with the 0 (MAX REVERSE) position on the protractor.
(8) Check the position of the governor assembly power turbine lever; the lever should be about 1/8
in. (3 mm) from the maximum speed stop.
(9) Return the coordinator input power lever to the 95 position. Check that the governor
assembly power turbine lever is again at the maximum speed stop position.
(10) Rotate the coordinator input power lever and check for freedom of movement. The lever shall
move freely without evidence of binding.
B. Procedure B Inner Propeller Governor Outrigger Lever
The coordinator inner propeller governor outrigger lever (Figure 202) is connected to the propeller
governor lever on the propellerpower turbine governor assembly as follows:
(1) Retain the propeller governor control cable to the power and accessory gearbox with supports
at three locations.
NOTE: Always install the cable using the maximum possible bend radii.

(2) Position the condition lever on the coordinator to align the rigging pin holes. Insert rigging pin
6872575.
(3) Attach the propeller governor control cable to the inner propeller governor outrigger lever
(Figure 202) on the coordinator with a bolt and nut. Tighten nut to 10--35 lb in. (1.1--3.9 N.m)
and secure with a cotter key.
(4) Rotate the propeller governor lever on the governor assembly counterclockwise against the
minimum speed stop; the lever is spring loaded in the clockwise direction. Adjust the cable
length at the governor assembly end in a manner to load the propeller governor lever against
the minimum speed stop. Take up cable looseness by compression of the cable. Attach the
cable to the propeller governor lever with a bolt, washer, and nut. Tighten nut to 10--35 lb in.
(1.1--3.9 N.m) and secure with cotter key.
(5) Ensure that the threaded ends of the cable extend into the rod ends past the inspection hole to
assure adequate thread engagement; then lockwire the jam nuts.
(6) Remove the rigging pin. Place a 0.001 in. (0.03 mm) feeler gage between the maximum
speed stop and the propeller governor lever. Move the condition lever rearward (clockwise)
until the propeller governor lever contacts the maximum speed stop. The feeler gage should
drag when being removed, indicating the propeller governor lever and the max speed stop are
in contact. The condition lever should move freely without evidence of cable binding.
(7) Move the condition lever forward (counterclockwise) until the propeller governor lever contacts
the minimum speed stop. There should be no evidence of cable binding. The rigging pin
should insert freely.
C. Procedure C -- Fuel Cutoff Outrigger Lever (Ref. Figure 201)
NOTE: Interference can be observed between the fuel cutoff rod hardware and the
starter--generator. To alleviate this interference, install the fuel cutoff rod hardware (Ref.
Fuel Cutoff Rod Hardware Installation -- Alternate Method, para 2.C.(2), this section).
NOTE: An optional counterbore washer can be installed to make sure that the fuel cutoff rod
does not disengage from the fuel control cutoff lever (Ref. Fuel Cutoff Rod Hardware
Installation -- Alternate Method, para. 2.C.(2), this section).
(1) The coordinator fuel cutoff outrigger lever (Ref. Figure 202) is connected to the gas producer
fuel control cutoff lever as follows:
(a) Put the condition lever on the coordinator fuel cutoff outrigger lever to align the rigging pin
holes. Insert rigging pin 6872575.
(b) Rotate the fuel control cutoff lever on the fuel control in a counterclockwise direction until the
fuel control cuttoff lever engages the fuel cutoff detent (labeled C.O.) on the detent plate.
(c) Adjust the fuel cutoff tie rod until holes in the rod ends align (approximately) with holes in
the coordinator fuel cutoff outrigger lever and the fuel control fuel cutoff lever.
(d) Attach the fuel cutoff tie rod to the coordinator fuel cutoff outrigger lever with the bolt, washer,
and nut. Tighten the nut to 10--35 lb in. (1.1--3.9 Nm) and attach with a cotter key.
(e) Adjust the rod end on the free end of the fuel cutoff tie rod until the holes in the rod end and
fuel control fuel cutoff lever align. Attach the rod end to the lever with the bolt, washer, and
nut. Tighten the nut to 10--35 lb in. (1.1--3.9 Nm) and attach with a cotter key.
(f) Make sure that the threaded ends of the fuel cutoff tie rod extend into the rod ends past
the inspection hole to make sure of adequate thread engagement. Lockwire the jam nuts.
(g) Remove the rigging pin and rotate the coordinator condition lever toward the maximum
position (clockwise). Check the coordinator fuel cutoff outrigger lever for freedom of
movement.
(h) Rotate the coordinator condition lever toward the minimum position (counterclockwise),
and check that the governor minimum stop position and fuel cutoff occur at the same
time. Condition lever movement is limited by the stops on the propeller governor lever.
The rigging pin must insert freely.
