Thrust reverser deactivation with leaking actuator

Postby Shumway » 25 Aug 2018, 08:38

If one of the thrust reverser actuators has a leak, can the aircraft be despatched by following the TR deactivation MEL?
As per the system schematics, hydraulic pressure is not supplied to the reverser during normal operation, except during deploy and 10.8 seconds after stow command.
Yes, hydraulic might still drip but its whatever's in the line, not from the system...
