FED ALL
HYDRAULIC POWER - MAINTENANCE PRACTICES
1. General
A. The maintenance practices included in this section (201-299
page block) are general maintenance instructions that do not
fall within a specific category. Any maintenance practices that
fall within a specific category will be provided in the
applicable page blocks.
B. Whenever hydraulic system components are disassembled, cleaned,
overhauled or installed, flushing with BMS 3-11 hydraulic fluid
only is recommended to avoid fluid contamination within the
operational system by incompatible materials.
WARNING : FIRE-RESISTANT HYDRAULIC FLUIDS CONFORMING TO BMS
3-11 MAY CAUSE SKIN IRRITATION. AVOID PROLONGED OR
REPEATED CONTACT WITH SKIN. IN CASE OF EYE CONTACT,
FLUSH EYES WITH WATER AND OBTAIN MEDICAL AID. IN
CASE OF INGESTION, OBTAIN MEDICAL AID.

2. Hydraulic Fluid Replacement


A. General
(1) This procedure is used to change the fluid in the
hydraulic system. If severe contamination is present in
the system and flushing is required before refilling,
refer to the Maintenance Practices section of the
applicable subsystem.
(2) To change the hydraulic fluid in the system, a ground
test bench or one of the system B pumps can be used to
introduce the new fluid and purge the system. To ensure
satisfactory performance, the new fluid should be checked
after thorough mixing has taken place by operating all
systems, preferably after flight (Ref 29-00-1, Inspection/
Check ).
(3) Should fluid spill on airplane, decontaminate (Ref
Chapter 12 , Cleaning and Washing).
B. Equipment and Materials
(1) Approximately 100 gallons of new BMS 3-11 Hydraulic Fluid

(2) Hydraulic ground test bench equipped with a minimum of


5-15 (3-15 preferred) micron-rated filter between ground
bench and airplane connection (use of airplane hydraulic
system B pumps optional)
(3) Waste container of approximately 100-gallon capacity
C. Replace Hydraulic System Fluid
(1) Drain and purge A and B systems.
(a) Depressurize system A (Ref 29-11-0 ).
(b) Depressurize system B (Ref 29-12-0 ).
(c) Depressurize and drain A, B, and Standby reservoirs
(Ref 29-11 0).
(d) Disconnect and drain the suction, pressure, and
case return lines at both engine-driven hydraulic
pumps by disconnecting the hoses at the pumps. Plug
or cap open ports and lines.
(e) Jack airplane for retraction (Ref Chapter 7 ,
Jacking Airplane).
(f) Using one of the following steps, provide fluid
flow path to the waste container.
1) Disconnect a pump supply hose from a system B
pump and lengthen this hose as necessary to
reach the waste container.
2) Disconnect a pump supply hose at the disconnect
on the reservoir and connect a suitable length
hose from the disconnect on the reservoir to the
waste container.
(g) Connect hydraulic test bench to No. 1 engine pump
pressure line. Operate any flight control until
approximately 2 gallons of fluid have been flushed
into container.
(h) Connect test bench to No. 1 engine pump case drain
line and flush approximately 2 gallons into
container.

(i) Repeat steps (g) and (h) for engine No. 2 pump
lines.
(j) Using one of the following steps, provide hydraulic
fluid source.
1) Disconnect the pressure hose from No. 2 system
B pump. Lengthen as necessary and route to the
outlet of the ground test bench. Route inlet of
ground test bench into the barrel of new oil.
2) A system B pump may be used as the hydraulic
pump by disconnecting one system B pump supply
hose at the reservoir disconnect and then by
lengthening this hose as required to reach into
the barrel of new oil. Although not required,
elevation of the barrel will improve suction
pressure and reduce the possibility of pump
cavitation.
(k) If test bench is used, flush both system B pump
pressure and case drain lines until approximately 2
gallons of fluid has been flushed from each line
into container.
(l) Provide electrical power to the P6 panel and check
that the following circuit breakers are closed:
1) All flight control circuit breakers
2) Hydraulic System B circuit breakers (only if
system B pump is used to provide fluid source)
3) Ground Interconnect Valve circuit breakers
4) Standby System circuit breakers
(m) On the pilots' overhead panel, check that all
systems A and B flight control switches are in the
OFF position.
(n) On the third crewman's panel, position the GROUND
INTERCONNECT switch to OPEN. Energize fluid source.
Perform the following operations in sequence to
assure complete changing of fluid.

WARNING : ENSURE THAT ALL PERSONNEL AND MAINTENANCE


EQUIPMENT IS CLEAR OF ALL FLIGHT CONTROLS
BEFORE OPERATION. TO PREVENT INJURY TO
PERSONNEL AND DAMAGE TO THE AIRPLANE.

(o) Retract and extend main and nose gear through two
full cycles (Ref Chapter 32 , Landing Gear).
(p) Shut off fluid source.
(q) Remove airplane from jacks (Ref Chapter 7 , Jacking
Airplane).
(r) Turn on fluid source.
(s) Operate nose wheel steering through two full cycles
(Ref Chapter 32 , Landing Gear).
(t) On the pilots' overhead panel, switch ON systems A
and B elevator power and operate the elevators
through seven full stroke cycles from DOWN to UP to
DOWN. Return control column to normal position and
switch OFF A and B elevator power.
(u) On the pilots' overhead panel, switch ON systems A
and B rudder power and operate the rudders through
two full stroke cycles from LEFT to RIGHT to LEFT.
Return rudder pedal to normal and switch OFF A and B
rudder power.
(v) Operate the ventral airstairs through two full
stroke cycles from DOWN to UP to DOWN. Return
