POWER TURBINE FUEL GOVERNOR MAINTENANCE PRACTICES


1.

General
NOTE:

2.

The power turbine fuel governor Pg air circuit can be cleaned or the governor can be
replaced as dictated by the engine trouble condition encountered.

Replacement (See Figure 201.)


Replace the power turbine fuel governor if it is found to be the cause of engine malfunction. (Check
the maximum throttle stop and the aircraft rigging for erroneous settings before removal of the governor to correct engine malfunction.)
A.

Removal
CAUTION:

WHEN REPLACING EITHER THE ENGINE OR THE GOVERNOR, REFER TO


THE 250C20R SERIES PARTS CATALOG, PUB. NO. CSP23007, FOR
REQUIRED PART NUMBERS. THE ENGINE AND THE GOVERNOR REQUIRED
FOR MULTIENGINE INSTALLATIONS MAY NOT BE THE SAME AS THOSE
REQUIRED FOR SINGLE ENGINE INSTALLATIONS.

CAUTION:

WHEN THE POWER TURBINE FUEL GOVERNOR IS BEING REMOVED, MAKE


SURE TO PREVENT FOREIGN MATERIALS FROM ENTERING THE PNEUMATIC LINES OR GOVERNOR PORTS.

Remove the power turbine fuel governor from the engine as follows: (See Figure 201, 202 or
203, 730000.)
(1)

Disconnect lines and linkage.

(2)

Remove three nuts and washers which secure the governor to the power and accessory
gearbox housing.

CAUTION:

(3)

THE GOVERNOR PR, PG AND PY FILTER FITTINGS ARE NOT REMOVABLE.


DO NOT DISTURB THESE FITTINGS. THE GOVERNOR PC FILTER TEE FITTING IS NOT REMOVABLE. DO NOT DISTURB THIS FITTING!

Remove the governor assembly.


NOTE:

B.

In installations where the power turbine governor lever is not required, remove
the lever from the replacement governor and install it on the governor being
returned for overhaul.

Installation
WARNING: FAILURE TO PROPERLY INSTALL, ALIGN AND TIGHTEN FUEL, OIL, AND AIR
FITTINGS AND TUBES COULD RESULT IN AN ENGINE FAILURE.
Install the power turbine governor on the engine as follows:

PARA 2.B. (cont)
Refer to applicable airframe manual for power turbine rigging/adjustment.

NOTE:
(1)

Before installing the Bendix power turbine governor on the engine, install the required fittings:
(a)

Remove and discard all old packings.

(b)

Lubricate new packings and install on the fittings.


NOTE:

(2)

Coat drive shaft with Lubriplate 130A, 930AA or equivalent.


CAUTION:

(3)

MAKE SURE THAT THE GOVERNOR DRIVE PILOT IS PROPERLY


INSERTED IN THE GEARBOX. WHEN THE POWER TURBINE GOVERNOR IS BEING INSTALLED, MAKE SURE TO PREVENT FOREIGN
MATERIALS FROM ENTERING THE PNEUMATIC LINES OR
GOVERNOR PORTS.

Install in reverse order of removal.

CAUTION:
(4)

Wooden protective shipping block to protect the shaft from the work
bench when installing the fittings.

OVERTIGHTENING CAUSES BINDING OF THE LEVER SHAFT.

Tighten mount pad nuts to 7085 lb in. (7.99.6 N.m). Tighten control air line coupling nuts
to 80120 lb in. (9.013.6 N.m).
NOTE:

Be sure the procedures and precautions of Rigid Tube Inspection and Installation, para 8., 720000, EngineServicing, are observed when installing fuel
system tubes.

NOTE:

Hold governor fitting with one wrench while tightening B nut to fitting with
another wrench.

(5)

Check the pneumatic portion of the fuel control system for leaks . (Refer to Fuel Control
System Pneumatic Leak Check para 2.B., 730000.)

(6)

If the power turbine governor lever requires repositioning, loosen the nut, reposition, then
tighten the nut to 4050 lb in. (4.55.6 N.m).

(7)

Check run the engine after governor replacement. (Refer to Check Run, para 1.,
720000, EngineAdjustment/Test.)

(8)

Make appropriate entry relative to governor replacement in the Engine Log.

Rigging
The governor must be rigged on the aircraft. A protractor and a maximum throttle stop screw are
incorporated in the governor to assist in proper rigging. Refer to aircraft manual for proper rigging.

D.

Cleaning and Inspecting the Power Turbine Governor Pg Air Circuit


A contaminated Pg air circuit in the power turbine governor may cause droop, overshoot or hunting of the N2 rotor. Correct this contamination condition by cleaning the governor Pg orifice.
(See Figure 203.) The orifice can be cleaned with the governor either installed or removed from
the engine. If the governor is removed from the engine, use the procedures in para 2.B., this section. Clean as follows:
(1)

Carefully clean the exterior of the governor using methyl ethyl ketone. Be sure all contamination is removed in the area of the Pg orifice. Blow dry.

CAUTION:

THE FOLLOWING IS AN IMPORTANT CHANGE IN PREVIOUSLY APPROVED


PROCEDURE:

CAUTION:

DO NOT REMOVE OR CLEAN THE FUEL GOVERNOR PG BLEED; HOWEVER,


CONTINUED MAINTENANCE OF THE FUEL GOVERNOR PG ORIFICE IS RECOMMENDED.

CAUTION:

MAKE SURE NOT TO LOSE THE ORIFICE IF AIR PRESSURE IS USED FOR
DRYING.

(2)

Remove lockwire from the Pg orifice. Remove orifice using a 1/8 in. (3 mm) hex wrench.
Use caution during removal of the engine not to lose the shims or damage the packing.
The packing can be reused if undamaged. If the packing must be replaced, use Bendix
P/N 9535088.

Power Turbine Governor Pg Orifice


Figure 203
PARA 2.D. (cont)
(3)

Use an ultrasonic cleaner if available; if it is not, agitate the part in perchloroethylene or


mineral spirits in a clean container. Insert a sewing thread through the passage of the orifice (prescreened orifices only); slide the part back and forth on the thread to remove all
traces of foreign matter. Air dry the part.

(4)

Inspect the part for cleanliness. Inspect by placing the part in the center of a flashlight lens
and sighting through the passage. No particles or coating of any kind should be seen.
Repeat steps (3), and (4) if the part is not completely clean.

(5)

Clean the surface of the Pg flapper valve that mates with the Pg orifice. Access to the
flapper valve is through the hole in the governor body that retains the Pg orifice. Use a
cotton swab with a highly volatile residuefree solvent (chlorothene or equivalent) applied
to the tip.

(6)

Inspect the valve surface for cleanliness using a flashlight. Reclean the surface if any particles or coating can be seen.

(7)

Lightly lubricate the packing with ASTM No. 5 (or equivalent). Install the Pg orifice with
packing and shims. Be sure that all of the shims that were removed are reinstalled with
the orifice. Tighten orifice finger tight. Be sure the shims are properly positioned before
final tightening the orifice.

PARA 2.D. (cont)
(8)

Tighten the orifice to 1415 lb in. (1.61.7 N.m) using a 1/8 in. hex wrench. This torque
value is critical and must be strictly observed. Secure the orifice with lockwire.

(9)

Make a record in the engine log book of cleaning the governor Pg orifice.

(10)

Visually inspect the governor to ensure that all lines, lockwires, etc., have been reinstalled.
Start the engine. Allow five minutes for warmup before checking operation of the governor. Replace the governor if N2 continues to droop, overshoot or hunt.
