Surface D is nickel/silver plated. Build
up of black silver oxide on this area is
result of fretting action and is accept-
able. Do not remove black silver oxide.
The inspection criteria below requires
no rework/repair if the limitations
(0.003 INCH) are not exceeded.
a. All surfaces except surface G and H. See step
b for surface H and step c for surface G.
(1) Blend damaged surfaces to a minimum of a
20:1 ratio. Each contiguous blended area
shall not exceed a 2.0 INCH diameter.
(2) Fluorescent dye penetrant inspect repaired
surfaces. No cracks or deformities allowed
(TM 55-1500-335-23). Use fluorescent
(3) Finish repaired areas as follows:
(a) Surface A, apply primer coating (item 78,
App F) and polyurethane coating (item
141, App F) to repaired area. For inside
diameter apply primer coating (item 78,
App F) to repaired area except for lower
0.5 inch of mast.
(b) Surfaces B, D, E, and F. Apply lubricant
to repaired area. Use lubricant (item 116,
1 Allow lubricated surfaces to cure for
