is the procedure to adjust fixed or variable
exhaust gas tail cone areas during normal
aircraft checks every 30 to 50 hours.)
To check aircraft fire detector, overheat
detector, and wing anti-icing systems
by using tempcal probes.
Refer to the MIM of a particular aircraft for
the proper procedure when you check and adjust
the variable nozzle systems. You can get detailed
instructions for adjusting the EGT with the
JETCAL analyzer from the applicable MIM.
