I thought I would throw together some of my procedure photos for the folks to see how an engine C1 Fan section is removed to facilitate maintenance. Follow this link to my site and watch how it is done. I also included one bonus picture at the end of the album.

If you have any requests let me know. This of course should only be considered information use only material. DO NOT go out and try this on your own P&W 306B engine. This is a common procedure in the shop and sometimes the line have a look will you.

This engine is indicative of most modern High bypass fan engines and the results will look the same on larger engine but of course the pieces will be a hell of a lot bigger and heavier.

Notice the use of white gloves by the technician, this keeps human oils of the components, which when combined with heat can cause corrosion to the engine parts.

Have fun.

You may want to post this in the Tech/Ops Forum as well. I'm sure some of the mechanics there would love to see these pics.

Its better to be on the ground wishing you were in the air than be in the air wishing you were on the ground. Fly safe!

This is a P&W class in San Antonio. They ship a training engine down and we tear it apart and reassemble it. Some shots are from various Jets that have come through San Antonio.
