2.31 ENGINE CONTROL SYSTEM.
The engine control system consists of the engine power
lever quadrant, the engine chop controls, the load de-
mand system, and the overspeed protection system.
2.31.1 Engine Power (PWR) Lever Quadrants.
PWR lever quadrants for the pilot and CPG (fig 2-19) al-
low either crewmember to manage engine power. The two
quadrant control panels are different, although the PWR
levers are identical. Friction however, can be set on only
the pilot levers. The PWR levers have four detent posi-
tions: OFF, IDLE, FLY and LOCKOUT. The pilot detent
override controls are mechanical while the CPGs are
electrically operated. Movement of either PWR lever
moves a cable to mechanically shut off fuel (stop cock) or
to set NG speed. For flight, the lever is advanced to FLY.
By moving the PWR lever momentarily to LOCKOUT,
then retarding past FLY, NG speed may be manually con-
trolled. When the PWR lever is in LOCKOUT, the TGT lim-
iting system is deactivated, and TGT must be closely
monitored and controlled. The overspeed protection sys-
tem is not disabled in the LOCKOUT position.

position of a knurled ring on each collective stick grip con-
trols engine chop. The ring is placarded UNLATCH,
CHOP and RESET. When the ring is pushed forward (UN-
LATCH) and rotated 45 to the right to CHOP, the speed of
both engines is reduced to idle. This is done by a switch in
the grips that cuts out the power turbine speed reference
signals for both engines. At this time, the ENGINE CHOP
warning light will illuminate. The ENG 1 OUT and ENG 2
OUT lights and audio will not activate because engine
chop activation disables this feature. The LOW RPM RO-
