b) Check that at least two bonding leads per surface are available.
Approved procedure for identifying the need to remove the associated IDG:a) Check the IDG oil level. If oil consumption is excessive or there is evidence of
leakage, the IDG must be removed and flight blanked in accordance with the AMM
(section 24.11.11). If IDG is removed, ensure that loose fittings are stowed securely.

b) Remove the scavenge filter element of the associated IDG and examine for evidence
of metal contamination (reference AMM 24-11-21 page block 201).
c) If no metal contamination is evident, reinstall filter.
OR
If metal contamination of the filter element, casing or oil is evident as determined by
reference to the guidelines in the AMM, the IDG must be removed and blanked in
accordance with the AMM (section 24-11-11). If IDG is removed, ensure that loose
fittings are stowed securely and filter is replaced.
If APU used:
The procedure for confirming the acceptable status of the generator for operation of the
APU to supply air (to be carried out prior to dispatch and once every flight day thereafter),
is as follows (Sundstrand APU):

24-13-1
APU Generator

EU-OPS 1 OM

a)

Check the APU oil level. The APU must not be used if oil consumption is excessive
or there is evidence of leakage.

b)

Remove the scavenge oil filter (there are two oil filters on the APU, a pressure oil
filter situated in the oil pressure circuit and a scavenge filter which filters return oil
from the generator). Visually examine for metal particles in accordance with AMM
49-90-47.

c)

Reinstall filter element if no metal contamination is evident.

d)

If metal contamination is evident as determined by reference to the guidelines in


the AMM, the APU must not be used.

For the affected system(s) confirm that the associated hydraulic reservoir fluid content is

NOTE:
Prior to checking the reservoir contents on the sight glass, the following conditions must
be met:
Airbrakes in.
Flaps up.
Open the hydraulics bay door and verify that:
the gauge on reservoir indicates reservoir is pressurised to 25 PSI minimum.
the accumulator is serviced to 1000 PSI minimum.
The green hydraulic reservoir has a single green tape.

29-30-2
Hydraulic Contents
Gauges

Conversely, the yellow hydraulic reservoir sight glass consists of 3 green tapes. The
quantity of the yellow hydraulics should lie within the limits depending on the charging
status of the airstairs accumulator and brake accumulator.
The pressure as indicated on the accumulator gauge should indicate at least 1000 psi.
This is the nitrogen pressure with the piston fully retracted (no hydraulic pressure).
If the actuator contains hydraulic fluid, the pressure gauge will indicate a pressure greater
than 1000 psi. An accumulator is considered to be fully charged when its pressure gauge
reads at least 2000 psi.
If both the airstair and brake accumulator read a pressure between 1000 and 2000 psi,
they are both to be considered as not being fully charged. Consequently the hydraulic
fluid level on the reservoir sight glass should be within the upper green tape
(accumulators both discharged).
Conversely, if both the airstair accumulator and brake accumulator read a pressure
above 2000 psi, they are both to be considered as fully charged. The hydraulic fluid level
on the reservoir sight glass should be within the lower green tape (both fully charged).
Remark that because part of the hydraulic fluid is in the accumulator, less fluid will be
stored in the hydraulic reservoir.

For the affected system(s) confirm that the associated hydraulic reservoir fluid contents is
within the green sector on the sight glass.
NOTE:
Prior to pressurising the hydraulic system and checking the reservoir contents on the
sight glass, the following conditions must be met:
Airbrakes in.
Flaps up.
Open the hydraulics bay door and verify that:
the gauge on reservoir indicates reservoir is pressurised to 25 PSI minimum.
the accumulator is serviced to 1000 PSI minimum.
The green hydraulic reservoir has a single green tape.
29-32-1
Amber LO QTY
Warnings

Conversely, the yellow hydraulic reservoir sight glass consists of 3 green tapes. The
quantity of the yellow hydraulics should lie within the limits depending on the charging
status of the airstairs accumulator and brake accumulator.
The pressure as indicated on the accumulator gauge should indicate at least 1000 psi.
This is the nitrogen pressure with the piston fully retracted (no hydraulic pressure).
If the actuator contains hydraulic fluid, the pressure gauge will indicate a pressure greater
than 1000 psi. An accumulator is considered to be fully charged when its pressure gauge
reads at least 2000 psi.
If both the airstair and brake accumulator read a pressure between 1000 and 2000 psi,
they are both to be considered as not being fully charged. Consequently the hydraulic
fluid level on the reservoir sight glass should be within the upper green tape
(ACCumulatorS both discharged).
Conversely, if both the airstair accumulator and brake accumulator read a pressure
above 2000 psi, they are both to be considered as fully charged. The hydraulic fluid level
on the reservoir sight glass should be within the lower green tape (both fully charged).
Remark that because part of the hydraulic fluid is in the accumulator, less fluid will be
stored in the hydraulic reservoir.

Before further flight and once each flight day thereafter.
a) Disconnect the electrical connector to the associated engine anti-ice valve. Since
this valve is energised closed, this will ensure that the engine anti-ice valve is open.
Ensure that the connector is safely stowed and that the engine cowlings are closed
and secured.
b) Start the associated engine.
c) Ensure ENG AIR is selected to OFF and ENG ANT-ICE is also selected to OFF.
d) Set the engine to 30% N1, and allow EGT to stabilise. Record engine number and
EGT value, which represents EGT with only engine anti-ice operating (intake valve
closed, engine valve open).
e) Select the associated ENG ANT-ICE to ON, observe the EGT gauge and ensure that
the associated EGT reading increases by approximately 10 to 15C. Record EGT
value, which now represents EGT value with both engine and intake anti-ice
operating (both valves open).
NOTE: To overcome hysteresis in the valve, it may be necessary to advance the
thrust lever to achieve approximately 50% N1, then retard to 30% N1.

associated EGT reading is 5 to 10C lower than that noted in step d) above.

k) Select associated ENG ANT-ICE to ON, observe EGT gauge, and ensure that the
associated EGT reading increases by approximately 15 to 20C from that in step j)

1) Over speed Trip System Primary Magnetic Speed Sensors


Nil.
2) Over speed Trip System Secondary Magnetic Speed Sensors
The Secondary Overspeed System may be rendered inoperative due to any of the
following circumstances:
i)

Due to genuine failure of the Secondary Overspeed System.


OR
ii) Following failure of the N1 speed sensor which provides the signal for flight deck
N1 indication (failure of N1 indication is a NO GO item);
There are two dual coil N1 sensors mounted on the engine stub frame. The 12 o'
clock position supplies flight deck N1 indication and the Secondary Overspeed
System. The 3 o' clock sensor supplies a FADEC ECU N1 signal, the other coil
is redundant. Following failure of the N1 flight indication speed sensor, the 12 o'
clock and 3 o' clock sensors may be exchanged thus reinstating the N1 flight
deck indication. When the sensors are exchanged, the Overspeed Shutdown
test should be performed and the LED BITE check (AMM 76-20-00) indication
must be interrogated to ensure that the overspeed system is fully operable. The
FADEC system must also be verified operational.
OR
iii) Following failure of the FADEC ECU N1 speed sensor (one of a number of
failures indicated on the flight deck by an amber 'FAULT' on the Status Panel);

When the sensors are exchanged, the Overspeed Shutdown test should be
performed and the LED BITE check (AMM 76-20-00) indication must be
interrogated to ensure that the primary system is fully operational and to confirm
that the Secondary Overspeed System is inoperative.

A monitoring procedure must be invoked to record the oil consumption rate each time the
oil tank is refilled (once each flight day).
NOTE: At maximum oil consumption rates the engine will operate for 12 flight hours prior
to exhausting the usable oil supply.
