That's the suspicion from my A&P. He will check it out tonight.
I'm not judging here, but "hammer" and "airplane" don't seem to be two things that would go well together... LOL ... especially with the verb "SMACK" in there somewhere...
Two words: Duct Tape.
Actually five....Duct Tape and Baling Wire....
I would never use a MOPAR adjustment tool on my airplane.
Speaking of adjustment: verdict - up limit switch was out of adjustment.
Why? Don't know...should I be wary of some cause?
Because it’s a piece of crap $.50 microswitch before it gets an FAA stamp that makes it a $50 one?
Seriously, they’re garbage. Just learn never to trust them.
You're obviously new to the industry. Hammers come in many sizes and flavors, and if you are out in the field without tools, a wheel chock can come in pretty handy sometimes.
If it wasnt loose, it was probably just barely within adjustment range and a little bit of wear put it out of range.
If it wasn't loose, it was probably just barely within adjustment range and a little bit of wear put it out of range.
So it's not the size of your hammer it's how hard you bang it?
Far from "new in the industry" hence my POA handle. Just a tongue-in-cheek observation of what, on its face, sounds like a Neanderthal solution to something you might think needs a more skilled touch...
Yeah, so since I got what I needed from this thread, lets derail it now:
Is a Mooney hammer bigger or a Bonanza hammer? Cessna or Piper?
You forgot Cirrus...but those owners don't use the hammer themselves, they have someone on call to do it for them.
So your inop flaps are now outop?
Ask Eman.... I think the Bo Hammer makes him look fat...
I wouldn't say a Mooney hammer is bigger....just more stout.
Does this Mooney make me look fat?
25$ Service Fee to show up with hammer....500$ Knowledge Fee for knowing where to hit it, how much energy to impart to the part when hitting it and knowing the correct set of vectors to impart that energy on the part...
No hammer carries the force and consequence of @Ted DuPuis's ban hammer
That sounds like the voice of experience.
^^^ there was that one time when I said...
well....give that guy a hammer.....and everything becomes a nail.
HIs right arm moving the silver lever in the pic. It can indeed fail, but there's not a whole lot that can go wrong.
LOL I'll give you that, finesse is required much more than gorilla tactics, but there's a time and place for both.
I have a whole drawer full of hammers.
Often referred to as malletization.
Malletized in accordance with...
We come from the same Airline Training Academy.
This one time, at band camp...
I told everyone @steingar has to pump before he arrives, and Ted got all grumpy with me...
I've got a spare one. Want to buy it?
As in all things, depends on the price.
I have the pump, not the actuator. How bad fo you need it? They can be rebuilt with a seal kit, you may be better off doing that. LASAR has the kit.
I signed off a B-727 flap motor like that years ago, surprised it didn't come back to haunt me. This is when we all used those huge mag-lites as malletizers. Did fix it though, write up didn't repeat.
Darn switch. Stopped working again today. Maybe time to replace it or the actuator if worn.
Found bad wiring crimp on our then-new 172M...............
Finally found mine on 182q. Loose screw on Microswitch in wing. What a bitch to get to. Finally drilled a little hole, then stuck a plug in it. So far, so good.
Yep. Here's the system in my -9A, with an electric actuator. The failure mode here is that sometimes grease form the actuator's screw drive works its way to the motor's commutator. But if it ever fails, flaps will be asymmetric.
