I have been following several topics the last while and have decided that there is so much mis-information about this engine that I thought I would put together some documents to help with both maintenance and flight peoples - and those armchair pundits that post total rubbish regarding the engine operation.

My friends told me I should sell this info - but I know how that works - In Canada I make 1 sale - and from then on it gets "Shared". In the US - it just gets hacked. Overseas - it gets a little politer hacking - is "Politer" actually a word??

So in the spirit of things I have decided the quickest way to get this stuff out would be to use the Creative Commons approach - if you don't know what that is then Google is your friend.

The link below is to my website and will open showing 3 documents - they are all free for the downloading. They are all PDF documents so all you need is the Acrobat Reader to access them.

They are all based on the small / medium engine series of the PT6 - so up to about the 40 series.

One is on the operation of the Bendix FCU - I have literally built the FCU on paper.

Another one is on rigging the engine.

The third one is a descriptive set of notes on how the engine control system operates.

These might help with understanding and maintaining the engine

- but remember

These are Not OFFICIAL PUBLICATIONS and are FOR TRAINING PURPOSES ONLY

Download them - share them - give them away to your favorite friends - I have relinquished all control of the documents so you can use them in your own training department - or self study - or just to make your computer look smart when someone drops by to see what you are doing.

I had a lot of fun developing these - and after 40 years in the aviation maintenance and maintenance training business I thought it was time to give something back. It's a bit late for Christmas - but here is a present from me to you.

Best wishes for a great and accident free 2013!!

Nice work. I am very glad that there are people who are exponentially smarter than I and can design and build these systems.

Nice work. I especially like the P&WC PT6 rigging chart, showing the seven possible scenarios. I have the same and it has proved to be invaluable over the years. The video from P&WC by one of rigging engineers (Herb Lach) who helped the aircraft manufacturers develop their maintenance procedures is also full of tidbits of info. It used to be free of charge at one time from Pratt.

Yes, thanks from me too. Purely for interest's sake.

Have added an additional file available through the link above.

File is a table describing the basic differences between the various engine models. It is not a detailed list of changed components - just the basic changes as the engines were developed.

Hi,
Are your training documents still available for viewing? When I try the link http://1pointperspecti.ucoz.com/load I encountered an error message:

SITE NOT FOUND
The requested site "1pointperspecti.ucoz.com" is not registered at uCoz Web Service

Thanks.

Sorry everyone - but like I expected - the site was hacked and taken over by the Russian spammers and the only way out was to shut it down.

I put a lot of time into producing and posting and then an insane amount of time in keeping it clear for a couple of months - in the end I just shut it down.

I did upload them to a couple of different free sites - Scribd for one and they should be able to be downloaded if you google Freebee PT6

If I get some request for the stuff I might consider trying another site for the downloads.


Even when something is free some jerk wants to catch a ride on it - sign of the times I guess.

Regards,

Mx

For those looking for the files I have a new download site that hopefully will stay intact against the spammers.

I changed it on the first post and here it is again.

In addition I have added a couple of other files as well.
