FLIGHT SAFETY PART
The input drive shaft is a flight safety part. Failure to follow maintenance instructions may
result in serious injury or death of crewmembers and/or serious damage to the helicopter.
Do not intermix outer diffusers (one-piece or two-section), inlet diffusers, or vaneaxial fans. Intermix-
ing or swapping these components will result in damage to components.
Exercise care and undertake protective measures when handling or performing any type of maintenance
on the engine input drive shaft. All surface areas are critical. Accidental dents or scratches caused by
improper handling may render part unserviceable.
To prevent damage to engine input drive shaft, ensure that work area is clean and that part is placed on
a soft and adequately protected working surface.
This task is typical for either No. 1 or No. 2 engine input drive shaft.
