But if that is true, wouldent we be able to see the guide stop outlines on the cowling?
Guide stops? Not sure what you're asking here.
Here's a brief anatomy of what we're seeing:
-At the very top, fwd of the pylon is the thrust reverser air motor (just visible).
-Below that, as discussed is a cascade segment.
-The green ring the segment is attached to (fwd) is the translating ring. This ring moves fore and aft and is continuous from the top of the engine to the other side. If I had to guess, about 320 degrees.
-The cascade segment is attached, at its aft mount, to the translating sleeve. Housed in the sleeve, inner, out of our view, are the blocker doors and the operating links.
-Forward of the ring, are 2 of the TR
gearboxes and their jackscrews. These are linked together, in series, with 2 more on the other side, by shafts (heavy cables) to the TR
I don't see any other TR
component from this view. Incidently, the fixtue on the engine fan case about half way up, is the attach point for the engine change equipment.
