exceeds one drop per minute.
CHECK TORQUE OF TAIL ROTOR FORK NUTS
a. If nut rotation does not occur before 600 inch-pounds, verify proper
indexing of tail rotor fork no later than the next 250 hour phase inspection.
b. If rotation of any nut occurs before 600 inch-pounds determine if tail rotor
fork is properly indexed.
c. If tail rotor fork is not properly indexed, go to paragraph 55.G. If tail rotor
fork is properly indexed and there was rotation of any nut during the
torque check, do the following:
(1) Remove tail rotor fork. NOTE: Axial wear that does not penetrate
through the cadmium plating is not caused for rejection however, if
axial wear penetrates the cadmium plating, the stud must be
(2) Inspect tail rotor gear box studs for scoring, radial wear (smiles) and
(3) Check studs for looseness. Replace studs if free play exceeds 0.022
