SERVICE FORWARD LANDING GEAR SHOCK STRUT (AIR) (Continued)
Note recorded pressure needed to inflate second
strut. Note lower of two recorded pressures
required to inflate first strut.
Chart dimension A for both struts
should be same within 1/2 inch. If
off by more, service struts with fluid
Find noted pressures on chart. If pressures fall
between chart blocks, go to closest block. Read
chart DIMENSION A next to pressure.
Only nominal pressure readings are
shown on landing gear servicing plate.
Turn outer valve nut (3) left to add air.
Turn nut right to shut off air.
Step 14 requires going back and
forth between landing gear. If two air
sources are available, service both
struts at same time.
Add as much air as needed to each strut (5) in
turn to increase extension of strut about 1 inch
at a time. Stop when each strut extension equals
required DIMENSION A.
The minimum ground clearance is
19.2 inches. This measurement is
taken from under the aircraft at ramp
