An automatic damping action occurs at the steering damper if for any reason the flow of high-pressure fluid is removed from the ~ b. inlet of the steering damper.
What is the purpose of the torque links attached to the cylinder and piston of a landing gear oleo strut? ~ c. Maintain correct wheel alignment.
The removal, installation, and repair of landing gear tires by the holder of a private pilot certificate on an aircraft owned or operated is considered to be ~ c. preventive maintenance.
Aircraft brakes requiring a large volume of fluid to operate the brakes generally c. use power brake control valves.
What is one effect a restricted compensator port of a master cylinder will have on a brake system? The restriction will cause slow release of the brakes.
When an air/oil type of landing gear shock strut is used, the initial shock of landing is cushioned by b. the fluid being forced through a metered opening.
Internal leakage in a brake master cylinder unit can cause ~ c. the pedal to slowly creep down while pedal pressure is applied.
A sleeve, spacer, or bumper ring is incorporated in a landing gear oleo shock strut to limit the extension stroke.
The purpose of a sequence valve in a hydraulic retractable landing gear system is to ensure operation of the landing gear and gear doors in the proper order.
The pressure source for power brakes is the main hydraulic system.
Which statement is true with respect to an aircraft equipped with hydraulically operated multiple-disk type brake assemblies? Do not set parking brake when brakes are hot.
What type of valve is used in the brake actuating line to isolate the emergency brake system from the normal power brake control valve system? A shuttle valve.
When servicing an air/oil shock strut with MIL-5606 the strut should be collapsed and fluid added at the filler opening.
Instructions concerning the type of fluid and amount of air pressure to be put in a shock strut are found in the aircraft manufacturer's service manual.
The purpose of a relief valve in a brake system is to compensate for thermal expansion.
Aircraft tire pressure should be checked at least once a week or more often.
If the extended longitudinal axis of the main landing gear wheel assemblies intersects aft of the aircraft, the wheels can be termed as having toe-out.
What is the purpose of a compensating port or valve in a brake master cylinder of an independent brake system? ~ Permits the fluid to flow toward or away from the reservoir as temperature changes.
If an aircraft shock strut (air/oil type) bottoms upon initial landing contact, but functions correctly during taxi, the most probable cause is ~ low fluid.
What is the function of a cam incorporated in a nose gear shock strut? ~ Straightens the nosewheel.
Extension of an oleo shock strut is measured to determine the proper operating position of the strut.
Debooster cylinders are used in brake systems primarily to reduce the pressure to the brake and increase the volume of fluid flow.
If a shock strut bottoms after it has been properly serviced, the strut should be removed, disassembled, and inspected.
A high-speed aircraft tire with a sound cord body and bead may be recapped ~ an indefinite number of times.
If an airplane equipped with master cylinders and single-disk brakes has excessive brake pedal travel, but the brakes are hard and effective, the probable cause is ~ . worn brake linings.
The correct inflation pressure for an aircraft tire can be obtained from ~ the aircraft service manual.
What should be checked when a shock strut bottoms during a landing? ~ Fluid level.
How can it be determined that all air has been purged from a master cylinder brake system? ~ By noting whether the brake is firm or spongy.
The left brake is dragging excessively on an airplane on which no recent brake service work has been performed. The most probable cause is ~ foreign particles stuck in the master cylinder compensating port.
