Nylon Strips Between Thrust Lever & Control Stand

Mon Jan 19, 2004 6:06 pm

On B737
Why is the Aisle stand checked for proper clearance between the thrust levers and the nylon strips, & if required rework to obtain .000 to .005 total clearance, throughout lever travel.
What is the purpose of these Nylon strips.
I may not win often, but I damn well never lose!!! ;)

Never having worked on the B737, I'll make an educated guess. Since the clearance goes from interference (.000) to .005 I would guess its just a dirt/dust shield to prevent FOD from falling into the pedestal. It could also act as a chafe strip to prvent the throttle sides from wearing due to side loads placed on the throttle, i.e. pushing at an angle instead of axially.

Once again, just a guess.
