Thrust Reverser Levers Stuck

Postby oktavian » 19 Feb 2013, 12:12

Hello,

On a plane Boeing 737, the tranzition between 200 - 300 series. After performing a set of work thats include T/R Remove/Instalation the Thrust Reverser Levers get stuck. They work only after the pilot try three-four times to deploy.

This happens after the Flight Test, however the usually ground tests are good.

You mean stuck by: not moving at all, or not moving to full reverse thrust.
Maybe the cable drum in the pylon is full with moisture and its frozen after flight (during landing roll)

so on the ground all ok, after flight not. Still looks like ice to me.
The bearings in the cable drum in the pylon may be soaked with water, forming ice.
