7.2.3 Perform magnetic particle inspection IAW TM-1-1520-264-23, section 4.27 with the following excep-
18.104.22.168 Select AC on the AC/DC power switch.
22.214.171.124 Place probe/yoke on the part so that the probe/yoke is parallel with the long axis of the shock strut.
126.96.36.199 Use a three-inch leg distance measured from the inside of the legs. Position one of the probe/yoke
legs a minimum of 1/4 inch above the weep hole maintaining contact with the shock strut.
Verify the probe/yoke legs are placed on housing, not on the
threaded ring. Improper placement of legs will generate an insuffi-
cient magnetic field.
188.8.131.52 Press the test switch and apply a light coat of magnetic particle media at the same time. Remove
the media momentarily before removing the current. Current should be applied for no more than five seconds.
Verify magnetic field with field indicator.
184.108.40.206 Inspect for cracks using the black light.
220.127.116.11 Demagnetize before moving to the next position, IAW TM-1-1520-264-23, para 18.104.22.168.
22.214.171.124 Reconfigure the probe/yoke legs to match the circumference of the shock strut, maintain the 3 inch
leg-to-leg distance as close as possible. Center the stripped area between legs of the probe/yoke.
126.96.36.199 Repeat steps 188.8.131.52. through 184.108.40.206.
7.2.4 If no evidence of cracking is found
220.127.116.11 Repaint the affected area utilizing primer (MIL-P 23377) and topcoat (MIL-C 46168) per Tm
18.104.22.168 Install shock strut IAW TM 1-1520-238-23-2, paragraph 3.18 or IETM.
