NO. 1 OR NO. 2 ENGINE LOAD DEMAND SPINDLE FORWARD CABLE
This task is typical for No. 1 or No.
2engine load demand spindle forward
cable, except as noted.
The engine load demand spindle
(LDS) cables cannot be intermixed
with cables manufactured by different
vendors. Cables that have a metallic
exterior (Controlex) cannot be inter-
mixed with cables that have a black
tubing exterior (Cablecraft). Cable
must be replaced with same exact part
number. If exact part is not available,
all No. 1 and No. 2 engine LDS cables
(four cables) must be replaced with
new cables (Cablecraft).
Friction load check is not required when
installing cables with black tubing exterior
(Cablecraft) and rod end seal. If installing
cables having rod end seal, go to step g.
a. Check cable ribbon (1) friction load.
(1) Place engine load demand spindle forward
cable (2) on flat surface. Ensure cable (2) is
not bent or twisted.
(2) Slide ribbon (1) 2.50 INCHES in and out of
cable (2). There should be no binding, stiff-
ness, or jamming.
(3) Check friction load of ribbon (1). Load not to
exceed 1.5 POUNDS. Use scale.
(4) If ribbon movement is rough or friction load
