1.110A. TAIL ROTOR BALANCE AVA KIT INSTALLATION continued
If there is any unserviceable tape remain-
ing from previous balance routines, it
must be completely removed to ensure a
clean and accurate tachometer signal to
(6) Place a single, 4-inch strip of reflective tape
on either outboard blade, aligning the tape
with the approximate location of the 5-degree
beam from sensor. (Tape should be placed
with span of blade.)
Blade with reflective tape will be referred
to in the AVA diagnostics as the #1 out-
board blade. Rotate blades in the direc-
tion of rotation and next blade is #1
inboard, and next blade is #2 outboard,
the next blade is #2 inboard.
