FLIGHT SAFETY PART
The tail rotor bellcrank link and/or components of the link are flight safety parts. Failure to
follow maintenance instructions may result in serious injury or death of crewmembers
and/or serious damage to the helicopter.
Heat treated condition of the tail rotor bellcrank link is critical to its serviceability. Any
indication of heat oxidizing (discoloration), where visually detectable, requires replacement
of the part. This part must be protected from unscheduled heating and external impact
during inspection and handling procedures.
