Questions

Slide 22

Return to Training 1 Concerning the fuel system, the correct statement is: A. The FUEL BOOST pump
switches have to be on for engine start. B. With the FUEL BOOST pump switches off, the respective
boost pump will automatically be energized whenever the respective START button is depressed, or
when crossfeed from that tank is selected. C. It is normal for both fuel boost pumps to operate during
crossfeed operation. D. The fuel boost pump will be automatically energized anytime the IGNITION
switches are in NORM.

Slide 23

Return to Training 2 After engine start, the fuel boost pump is de-energized by: A. The FUEL BOOST
pump switch B. Start circuit termination C. Discontinuing crossfeed D. A time-delay relay

Slide 24

Return to Training 3 Concerning the fuel system, the correct statement is: A. In the event of DC power
loss, the primary ejector pump ceases to operate and the engine flames out. B. The respective engine
should be shut down if the respective FUEL FILT BYPASS annunciator illuminates. C. The FUEL BOOST
switches should be on for takeoff and landing. D. The fuel filters should be inspected prior to the next
flight if the FUEL FILT BYPASS light illuminates.

Slide 25

Return to Training 4 If the L or R FUEL BOOST ON annunciators illuminate without any action by the
crew (engine operating normally), the probable cause is: A. The engine-driven fuel pump has failed. B.
The firewall shutoff valve has closed. C. The low-pressure sensing switch has energized the boost
pump. D. The fuel flow compensator has energized the boost pump below 5 psi.

Slide 26

Return to Training 5 To verify that crossfeed is in fact occurring, it is necessary to: A. Monitor the FUEL
QTY indicators for appropriate quantity changes. B. Only observe that the INTRANSIT light is out. C.
Ensure both FUEL BOOST ON lights are illuminated. D. Ensure that the FUEL BOOST pump switch for the
tank being fed is on.

Slide 27

Return to Training 6 When crossfeed is selected by positioning the crossfeed switch to LH TANK, and the
green INTRANSIT light stays on: A. This is normal. B. The boost pumps did not actuate. C. One or both
crossfeed valves did not fully close. D. One or both crossfeed valves did not fully open.

Slide 28

Return to Training 7 Operation of the primary ejector pump is directly dependent upon: A. DC electrical
power B. High-pressure fuel from the engine-driven fuel pump C. AC electrical power supplied by the
No. I or No. 2 inverter D. Flow from the transfer ejector pump

Slide 29

Return to Training 8 If the engine-driven fuel pump fails: A. The engine will flame out. B. The primary
ejector pump will fail also, but the boost pump will be energized by low pressure and will sustain the
engine. C. The transfer ejector pumps will also be inoperative. D. Crossfeed must be selected in order
to obtain high-pressure motive flow from the opposite engine.

Slide 30

Return to Training 9 If crossfeed has been selected and normal DC electrical power is lost (system
switch in EMER with a dual generator failure): A. The system will remain in crossfeed. B. The crossfeed
valves will fail closed. C. Both boost pumps will be energized to terminate crossfeed. D. The motive-flow
shutoff valve will fail open.
