(A) During the initial alignment inspection, mark the position of the ruler and record the initial clearance value of ‘‘DO’’ by following the Accomplishment Instructions, paragraph 2.B.3.a)3. through 2.B.3.a)6. of the ASB. The initial clearance distance between the lower edge of the 24 inch (500mm) straight edge ruler and the upper surface of the blade assembly at the blade-to-tip cap junction is called ‘‘DO.’’ (B) If the measured clearance as determined by paragraph 2.B.4. of the ASB is equal to or greater than ‘‘DO’’ + 2mm, replace the blade with an airworthy blade before further flight. (ii) Within the next 3 months, remove and inspect each blade for the correct wedge position, a crack in the tenon, correct alignment of the blade tip cap, and erosion in the leading edge in Zone 1 by following the Accomplishment Instructions, paragraph 2.B, of the ASB except this AD does not require you to contact the manufacturer. (A) If the wedge is incorrect (dissymmetrical position) as shown in Figure 2 of the ASB, using a 10x or higher magnifying glass and a light, inspect the imbedded portion of the tenon as shown in Figure 5 of the ASB for a crack by following the Accomplishment Instructions, paragraph 2.B.3., of the ASB. (1) If a crack is found in the tenon, before further flight, replace the blade with an airworthy blade. (2) If no crack is found in the tenon, inspect the end of the leading edge of the blade for erosion in Zone 1 as shown in Figure 7 of the ASB. (B) If the wedge position is correct (symmetrical position) as shown in Figure 1 of the ASB, inspect the end of the leading edge of the blade for erosion in Zone 1 as shown in Figure 7 of the ASB. (C) Thereafter, on or before 660 hours TIS and at intervals not to exceed 660 hours TIS, remove the blade and the blade tip cap, scrap the 35 attachment screws, and inspect the end of the leading edge of the blade for erosion in Zone 1 as shown in Figure 7 of the ASB. (3) For a blade with a S/N of 809 or greater: (i) For a blade that has less than 660 hours TIS, on or before 660 hours TIS and thereafter, at intervals not to exceed 660 hours TIS, remove the blade and the blade tip cap, scrap the 35 attachment screws, and inspect the end of the leading edge of the blade for erosion in Zone 1 as shown in Figure 7 of the ASB. (ii) For a blade that has 660 or more hours TIS, on or before 100 hours TIS and thereafter, at intervals not to exceed 660 hours TIS, remove the blade and the blade tip cap, scrap the 35 attachment screws, and inspect the end of the leading edge of the blade for erosion in Zone 1 as shown in Figure 7 of the ASB. VerDate Aug<31>2005 14:03 Oct 20, 2008 Jkt 217001 (4) If any inspection of the end of the leading edge of a blade in Zone 1, as shown in Figure 7 of the ASB, results in: (i) Erosion in Zone 1—clean and caulk the eroded zone by following the Accomplishments Instructions, paragraph 2.B.6., of the ASB, and reinstall the blade tip cap and caulk the gap in accordance with the Accomplishment Instructions, paragraph 2.B.7, of the ASB. (ii) No Erosion in Zone 1—reinstall the blade tip cap and caulk the gap in accordance with the Accomplishment Instructions, paragraph 2.B.7., of the ASB. Differences Between This AD and the MCAI (f) We have identified the following differences: (1) We refer to the actions required by this AD by using the word ‘‘inspect’’ rather than ‘‘check’’ to indicate that the actions are done by a mechanic rather than a pilot. (2) We do not require you to contact the manufacturer as specified in the service information. (3) We use the words ‘‘hours time-inservice’’ rather than ‘‘flight hours.’’ (4) We did not use the compliance date of September 30, 2004 to remove affected blades because that date has passed.
