Astar Shutdown

Recommended Posts

Quick question, maybe just paranoid

 

I flew this Astar on a ferry recenetly and on shut down when the RMP came down to below 150 there was a 1 revolotion noise coming form the head.. or transmission sounded like it needed grease... WTF more of hmmm, hmmm , hmmmm. very audible... any ideas...definately coming from the head or mast. Lots of dash shake too at 60- 100 kts..??????

Your noise at shutdown is probably a dry droop ring. Your dash shake in cruise is probably a matter of blade balancing. Now for the 100-dollar question: Did you snag it in the journey log? :)

I agree with the dry droop stop ring. I have had this in the past a number of times. The dash shake definitely sounds like you need some balancing work done.

Droop ring for sure. If it gets some sand in the 355 and then drys out it sounds really angry on shutdowns.

 

The best part is: You can grease it yourself without "snagging it in the book"!
