Topic-icon ATA 24-20, Shorted Power Feeder Wire

2 weeks 3 days ago - 2 weeks 3 days ago #617 by Mark
Found during engine change, shorted IDG power feeder wire. Approximately 20 inches away from IDG connection terminal. How this thing didn't cause a differential fault is beyond me.

A 1/0 cable splice and terminal were needed for repair. Some part number references.

This job required the use of a special hydraulic crimper.

The proper dies have to be used.

Just for reference, we found a oil soaked sheet in the manual for the crimper. This thing mentioned Eastern Airlines on it.

From the manual....
