NOTES:
(1) Life−limited components interchanged between models or configurations must be restricted to the lowest
service life indicated for the models or configurations affected. Life−limited components removed at
retirement are to be mutilated/destroyed or conspicuously marked to prevent inadvertent return to service.
Parts are applicable only on models under which a service life is listed.
Life−limited components cannot be altered or permanently marked in any manner without compromising
the part integrity. Part tagging or other record keeping system is required.
Related component records must be updated each time component is removed from service.
(2) Service life shown for the basic (no dash number) part numbers apply to all dash numbered versions
unless otherwise indicated.
(3) With no cargo hook attached: − No retirement life assigned (Ref. Sec. 05−10−00, Component Overhaul or
Recommended Replacement Schedule).
With cargo hook attached and no separate log: − 1800 hours.
With cargo hook attached and with separate log: − 1800 hours of external load operating time when logged
separately.
(For 369D/E/F/FF helicopters with 369A5364 or 369D25351 sprag assembly, Refer to AD 90−19−02.)
(4) Inspect in accordance with Main Rotor Strap Pack Lamination Inspection at 100−hour intervals, or 25−hour
intervals if 2 laminates (369D/E/F/FF − 500N) or 1 laminate (600N) have failed in any one leg or tongue
area of any strap assembly. A single cracked laminate between the shoes at the outboard end of a strap
pack is cause for rejection of the hub assembly
369D/E/F/FF − 500N: (Ref. Sec. 62−20−00, Main Rotor Strap Pack Lamination Inspection).
600N: (Ref. Sec. 62−20−60, Main Rotor Strap Pack Lamination Inspection).

(5) The 369D21100−513, −515, 516, 517 and −523 main rotor blades are not interchangeable with any earlier
configuration blades (Basic, −505 or −509); however, the −505 and −509 blades are interchangeable and
the −513 and −515 blades are interchangeable. The −505 and −509 configuration blades may be modified
to the −513M configuration, which is fully compatible with the −513 blade. (For information concerning
modification, contact MDHI Customer Service Department.)
(6) For the 369D/E helicopters, the 369D21120−501, −503 main rotor blade has all the same inspections and
interchangeability as the 369D21100−517 main rotor blade.
For the 369F/FF − 500N helicopters, the 369D21121−501, −503 main rotor blade has all the same
inspections and interchangeability as the 369D21102−517 main rotor blade.
For the 600N helicopters, the 369D21121−501, −503 main rotor blade has all the same inspections and
interchangeability as the 369D21102−523 main rotor blade.

NOTES:
(1) Components interchanged between models or configurations must be restricted to the lowest service life
indicated for the models or configurations affected. Components removed at retirement are to be destroyed
or conspicuously marked to prevent inadvertent return to service. Parts are applicable only on models
under which a service life is listed.
(2) Service life shown for basic part number applied to all dash−numbered versions unless otherwise
indicated.
(3) Bearing assembly must be relubricated every 2 years or 2770 hours, whichever occurs first (Ref.
CSP−COM−5, Sec. 62−30−10).
(4) Bearing assembly must be relubricated every 2 years or 2700 hours, whichever occurs first (Ref.
CSP−COM−5, Sec. 62−30−60).

(5) Under some operating conditions, overrunning clutch splines may need to be regreased more often than at
the 100−hour intervals and bearings may need to be regreased more often than at the 300−hour intervals.
With no cargo hook attached, inspect and regrease splines every 100 hours and bearing every 300 hours
(Ref. Sec. 63−10−00, Installation of Overrunning Clutch Subassembly and CSP−COM−5, Ball Bearing
Inspection and Grease Repack).
With cargo hook attached, inspect sprag assembly, inner race and outer race every 300 hours or 300 hours
of actual hook time when logged separately as per FAR 91.417, regrease clutch splines every 100 hours
and bearing every 300 hours (Ref. Sec. 63−10−00, Installation of Overrunning Clutch Subassembly and
CSP−COM−5, Ball Bearing Inspection and Grease Repack).
(6) When inspected per Landing Gear Damper Inspection (Ref. Sec. 32−10−00 for 369D/E/FF − 500N, or Sec.
32−10−60 for 600N).
(7) Use only main rotor hubs overhauled by MDHI or approved MDHI Licensees.
(8) Refer to data plate to determine start/generator manufacturer.
(9) The shelf life of bearings preserved with grease is limited to 4 years.
(10) Regrease overrunning clutch bearings every 300 hours (Ref. CSP−COM−5, Sec. 63−10−15).
(11) Interim hours: life extension testing in progress.
(12) The 369D25100 main rotor transmission overhaul time may be extended from a mandatory 3000 hour
overhaul time to a mandatory 4000 hour overhaul time, provided, the transmission is operated with Mobil
SHC626 since last overhaul.
The transmission shall not exceed 3000 hours if cargo hook time has reached a quantity of 750 hours.

AFTER MAIN ROTOR BLADE/DRIVE SYSTEM SUDDEN STOPPAGE
WARNING: Any component, assembly or detailed part that is removed for overhaul must be identified as
to the reason for removal. Components that require replacement must be scrapped.
Sudden stoppage of the main rotor and rotor drive system is any rapid deceleration of the main rotor drive
system. This may be caused by contact of one or more of the main rotor blades with the ground, water, snow,
dense vegetation or any other object of sufficient mass to cause deceleration or impact damage to the main
rotor blades.
A main rotor blade strike in which one or more of the main rotor blades exceed the repair limits in the
maintenance manual is defined as sudden stoppage.
Sudden stoppage of the main rotor may also occur simultaneously with hard landing in which the blades contact
the upper fuselage structure or the tailboom.
The inspection requirements, After Main Rotor Drive System Sudden Stoppage − Level 1, is to be used when
sudden stoppage of the main rotor drive system has occurred.
After Main Rotor Drive System Sudden Stoppage − Level 1
ALL Perform inspection of main rotor blades. Pay particular attention to the upper and 62
