  1. Going off the top of my head, you may have to change the Main Gearbox oil 254 in order prevent cross contamination if the freewheel seals leak.
  2. I use my Skeletool all the time but I tuck it into and clip on my front jean pocket. That way, it will not be seen and scare off the ladies. FYI, if you like the screwdriver bits, don't use it as a hammer.
  3. I was able to download the 204 and 205 manuals on a Mac. The save icon is on the tool bar. I could only download 1 ATA chapter at a time.
  4. I worked maintenance for them 4 years ago on a AFS summer contract. They were fantastic. I hear the DOM for Gemini is still the DOM for Ops Mobil.
  5. If you work in Canada, you work in a union. That union has a set of rules for workers to protect them. It is called the Canada Labour Code. If you want more rules than this, then you need to form a union particular to your profession. If you are happy with the current standard, than stick with the status quo. But it sound like many do feel abused by their employer. Any labour union would not have to veer too far from the the rules in place now, but could be more specific to the work that is being carried out. We alll know aviation is a different beast. It can be tailored any way the me
  6. 97-99. Great times and no regrets taking AMT. We had the Shark Tank in beside Honda. All you can eat McDonalds burgers after 11 PM. Must have eaten 300 of them that year. Also we cant forget about Brophie and Heatherlys' fractured relationship. FYI, Canadore is planning a reunion for 2013 to celebrate 40 years of Maintenance plus its been 10 since the last kegger when they closed the bomarc site. Not sure when
  7. I hear the OPP are not happy at all with the EC 135's. The aircraft is OK, just not for their specific use. Its all a political game, l hope the one who is making the decision has touched a cyclic before.
  8. HTS are using it on a couple of test 206's for Bell. The heads should have been due for a strap change since starting the program. I would like to see what the yoke looked like. Give them a call.
  9. Hey, your a legend out here, Ran into a native that worked on the fixed wing side at airborne. Can't remember his name but he is now on a fire crew. Been in High level for 6 days, too bad you not here anymore.

  11. Hello from the East!

  12. Don't use proseal, the cowlng will chafe on the proseal and wear the rolled portion at the mating surface causing premature wear of the cowling. Once the cowling is worn, a sharp edge will slice through the proseal and scrap out the tail boom. Unfortunally I can't answer the original post but I highly recommend using an antichafe tape.
  13. Nutmix. I can say today I learned something. Sounds like you have those FCU's down pat. I hope I can help too. This is from Essential Turbines that if you put your start ac-cell to nominal (I think 3 from the left)and turn your start de-rich all the way down (counter clockwise) then start the engine. It will hang at around 20 percent I think. Then turn the start de-rich clockwise until the engine starts to accelerate. This procedure sets up the optimal start de-rich schedule. Don't touch the de-rich anymore and adjust for start accel for the next start t for acceleration from 30
  14. The pay is not what it used to be scotty!!! Plus it wasn't 4 hour mins in april.
