    How about the P3 sense line? Or what ever GE is tapping for a ref on this eng? How about the flow divider? And you are For sure the FCU is good? Sounds like a fuel scheduling issue to me.(sounds like you might have a leak in a control bellows, and not allowing the eng to accelerate as needed) Cleaning and flowing the nozzles might be a good idea, if you have the equipment available.

    Oh yeah, for the record, most tech reps are useless. And if someone tells you otherwise, they are probally so dumb that they are going to be a tech rep soon anyway.:rolleyes:

    "Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen. I'm your pilot Captain Bob and on behalf of * Air I want to thank you for choosing * Air. As you know * Air has the highest standard for A&P maintenance and take safety seriously. At no time was the WERA BBS utilized in servicing this aircraft or any part on it. We did get serviced by a BBS cornerworker but that is a different story..."

    GixxerBlade Oh geez

    CDP (compressor discharge pressure) is good (P3). I was struggling with that but tightening up the shrouds have helped tremendously. I will try and re-schedule the VGA's (Variable Geometry Actuators). The bellows are brand new, just took them out of the bag before last run. That would cause low power believe it or not. Flowing the nozzles is for NADEPCP (Naval Aviation Depot Cherry Point) but I do have the manual to do it. Its just a matter of having a known quantity (the nozzle area) and adding or subtracting nozzle segments to get your area. Don't quite have the "right" tools to take it apart and put it back together but a hammer and screwdriver always work with things like that. :D

    I hope to be a tech rep when I retire (10 more years :up: ) I barely see them and it seems like they are always on vacation or at a conference in some foreign place that sounds cool (Hawaii :D) BTW we call them Khakis here, thats all they ever wear. :p





    You think we are confusing the common folk on here with all our jet engine jargon? :D

    Yeah, our tec. rep for Rolls blows. He went to school for 2 months on this engine and he knows all the specs. but cant diagnose s@@@

    I never got that, how can you know all the specs and all the parts but not know how they work together? If you know how things work together and what each part does, you know how the system works or doesn't work.

    You're right though, some reps know what they're doing and others are total iditos that have no business being around something that flies.

    Its going on test cell first thing tomorrow morning. I didn't find any Gremlins but that motor will probably fail. I'm not being pessimistic, really! :D
