What does a BOOST FAIL illumination indicate?
The boost pump has failed and now the engine fuel pump is working alone to provide pressure to the fuel nozzles. It will work for 10 hours before cavitating.
What is the purpose of the fuel transfer system?
To transfer fuel from the inboard wing tank against gravity into the nacelle tank.
What two conditions must be met for the fuel transfer pump to energize?
If the fuel level drops by 10 gallons (to 47) the transfer pump float will connect the pump circuit. The switch needs to be on first.
What condition is signified by the NO FUEL TRANSFER light?
A vacuum tube behind the fuel panel senses the 30 seconds that the transfer pump runs continuously, after which it illuminates a light on the annunciator panel. This indicates that the wing tanks are empty and have no more fuel to transfer into the nacel
If a transfer pump fails in flight, what amount is unusable tank?
If unable to transfer any more fuel from the wing tanks to the nacelle, gravity feed will spill fuel into the nacelles when they are 3/8 full, or 21 gallons remaining. All but 28 gallons will transfer from the wing tanks into the nacelles.
What condition causes the auto-crossfeed to activate?

What process releases the landing gear down lock hook?
The hook automatically unlocks when the plane leaves the ground. It can also be manually overridden by pressing down on the red button placarded DN LCK REL. A safety switch on the right main strut opens the landing gear control circuit when the strut is compressed. The safety switch also actuates a solenoid-operated downlock hook, which prevents the landing gear handle from being raised when the plane is on the ground. The right safety switch also disables the lip anti-ice boots when the aircraft is on the ground.

What are the three fuel vents for?Recessed ventHeated ventFlush vent
Nacelle tank vent
*all three vents are interconnected*
Recessed - recessed ram scoop vent, coupled to a heated extended vent located on the underside of the wing adjacent to the nacelle. Ram scoop acts as a backup vent should the heated vent become blocked.
Heated - heated to prevent icing.
Flush vent - adjacent to wing tiedown.
Nacelle tank vent - independent vent coming from the filler neck to vent the system in the event the normal vent system would become plugged.
How does the Primary Low Pitch stop operate?
The PLPS is a mechanical limit actuated by the beta ring that locks the propeller at a 5-degree pitch. At the point of contact, the PLPS closes a valve in the governor which locks in oil pressure in the lines. If the PLPS fails, it is backed up by the Secondary Low Pitch stop.
How does the Secondary Low Pitch Stop operate?
If the PLPS fails, then the beta ring moves forward past the point it would normally be stopped by the function of the PLPS. Next the beta ring touches the SLPS sensor - an electrical contact - which actuates a valve stationed on the governor and closes off the oil to the prop.
MX manual: "The secondary idle low stop sensor is located on the lower right side of the engine, just aft of propeller spinner bulkhead. The sensor is actuated when the primary low pitch stop system fails and acts to prevent propeller reversing."
How can we test the SLPS?
Position the Low Pitch Idle Stop Test switch down, and this reschedules the SLPS to engage at 210 +/- 40 RPM faster than Idle. Pull each power lever into Beta until RPM rests on that target RPM, and pull it further to assure that the SLPS is active. The
How can we test the autofeather system?
with Autofeather test switch depressed, move the power levers up to 500#. take each power lever individually down to 400# then to 200#, observing the Autofeather lights. At 400#, the opposite light should extinguish, and at 200# the same-side light shou
How can we test the overspeed governor?
Normally the overspeed governor will regulate prop hub oil pressure if the prop RPM exceeds 2288. For testing purposes, the overspeed governor can be derated to hold 2000 RPM instead of 2288. Hold the Overspeed Governor test switches up, then increase p
When testing play of the propeller blade tips, what are the limits until the propeller needs to be inspected by a mechanic?
end vertical play 0.060"fore-aft play 0.068"
What is the relationship of*Primary Governor*Secondary Governor*Overspeed Governor*PLPS*SLPS?
The Governor system manages blade angles at high RPM and high power...*Primary governor keeps a prop at full power between 1800 and 2200 RPM.*Secondary governor prevents RPM from speeding past 2288*Overspeed governor prevents RPM from speeding past 2332.
The Pitch Stop system manages blade angles at low RPM and low power...*PLPS is a mechanical stop on the CSU spindle. The stop rests on the reversing arm in flight idle position, which corresponds to 15* pitch minimum. As long as the prop speed as turned by the engine is greater than 1800 RPM, the governor is working the full range of the prop RPM from 1800 to 2200. In other words, the limit of the governor underspeed is 1800RPM. Below this is 15* blade pitch, where the PLPS is. The PLPS is adjustable by the reverse lever. Lifting the levers on the gate 1) engages the reverse interconnect rod with the reverse lever on the beta ring, and 2) opens the switch for the SLPS so that it does not engage since it is a safety backup. The reverse lever m

How can you know if the primary low pitch stop is operable?
Whenever the propeller RPM is below the selected governor RPM, the propeller blade angle is at the low pitch stop. If the RPM maintains the selected speed at very low power, then the prop is getting into lower blade angles and most likely the PLPS broke s
What indicates failure of the primary governor?
This is a runaway condition. As the propeller's speed reaches 2288RPM, the overspeed governor will begin increasing blade angle to a higher pitch, to prevent the RPM from continuing its rise. From a pilot's point of view, a propeller tachometer stabilized
A customer wants to hook up external power to the aircraft. Why do we want to keep the battery on during this time?
The battery switch should be ON when maintaining external power in order to absorb voltage transients. Otherwise, the transients might damage the many solid-state components in the airplane. For starting, external power sources capable of at least 1000 a
What are the important blade angles as regards the PLPS, SLPS, and reverse?
PLPS: ranges from +15* to -05* blade angle (Beta)SLPS: if the PLPS fails to arrest blade angle by 12*, then the beta ring will touch the SLPS contacts and compete the circuit to the SLPS annunciator and the oil dump valve.Reverse: Beta plus power range fr
What actions should not be taken if a SLPS warning illuminates at low speed (110kts) and low power (below 400lbs)?
The PLPS system didn't engage properly and the SLPS did, which means that the PLPS system is probably broken. If the SLPS light comes on during low power, unfortunately the SLPS is probably failed closed and oil is draining from the prop hub uncontrollab

where are the high and low oil pressure sensors and why are they in the system?
they are for redundancy... both of them have to sense the pressure drop before they cue the autofeather dump valve.
where is the autofeather dump valve? what does it do?
the autofeather dump valve is on the 9 o/clock position just below the prop governor. when receiving dual signals from the pressure sensors - one from the high and one from the low - the valve dumps pressure from the prop causing it to feather.
where is the secondary low pitch stop valve?
the secondary low pitch stop valve is to the left of the governor. when the SLPS is actuated, the valve closes and locks the oil pressure inside the hub.
where is the SLPS governor and how does it work?
