Could be a leak, but I suspect electrical. I don't recall if any of the hydraulic lines are up that far forward. Most of them run aft to the trailing edge flap wells. I haven't been up there in a while.

The area just inboard of the pylon houses the 'vapor seal' disconnects for the engine/pylon. We've had plenty of problems at those connectors in the past.

By the way, anyone note the complete absence of fall protection?

My guess is that it isn't a hyrdraulic snag at all, that its actually fuel. If memory serves me correctly, there's one beefy fuel line under that panel which has a nasty habit of springing a leak which shows up as a dry bay leak. Seen one and heard about many others.

I thought it was the firewall coupling that leaked? I'm not sure if you can see the firewall side of the coupling from there, but like I said, haven't been in that area in a while.

I thought the only way to deactivate the slide would be from the outside of the A/C, therefore negating the need to deactivate the slide since they are already on the wing  Wink

Also wouldn't that mean opening up the slide housing which if not shut & locked perfectly can allow the slide go deploy inflight (idea from another thread).

I'm not MX just curious  Smile

May not be the situation in the picture, but theres 3 pipes, 2 hyd one fuel that run tight together through the front of the pylon hyd bay from the EDP modue and up along the top under the coffin lid panel, theres a u shaped pipe in the hyd bay that boeing changed the shape of through an S.B because the 2 hyd pipes were chafing through, they may have had one in this case. Ive changed one on the line from the chafing and its not much fun, get covered in skydrol and yes, it was raining all day. Its were the pipe cluster goes through the bulkhead and under the Y ducts, theres that rubber bung assy thats a PITA to put back together and you have to work by feel!!

Sure there is. You use your lift equipment, which has rated attach points. You tether to it with a retractable, ratcheting lanyard.

But having it OVER the wing isnt a good idea..... the bucket of the lift could collapse (if not used properly or maintained properly) and hit the wing damaging it.

At AS, we were NOT allowed to have ANYTHING over the wing while working...company policy. (but there were exceptions (very rare to get!) that REQUIRED top upper management permission....IE: SI checks for inspectors.)

Quoting AirframeAS (Reply 22):

Well then, you have a problem. Part of the OSHA standard:

"Unprotected sides and edges." Each employee on a walking/working surface (horizontal and vertical surface) with an unprotected side or edge which is 6 feet (1.8 m) or more above a lower level shall be protected from falling by the use of guardrail systems, safety net systems, or personal fall arrest systems."

Some states have tighter regs: KY-4 feet.


We set up our snorkle lift as close to the work area as possible and tether to it. Sometime this means it is set up over the wing. Too bad. You're looking at the rare event of a cylinder failure vs. the more probable event of a person losing his footing on a wing.

If AS is only working on 737s and mad dogs, they might not be in violation of this standard. No overwing slides means that at least the trailing edge is less than six feet off the ground.
