I have a lead on the original T.O.'s for the GCT-85 turbines, I have been wanting to get one our starter cart anyway. If you could let me know what your engine maker and model is I can inclued the data for that engine as well.

Mine is a Garrett and I found the TO for the GTC-85 over at Premier Jets in Hillsboro, Oregon. I fly part time for them and I was over visiting with the staff today and they also have a broke down MA1A newer but identical to mine. I'm going to stop by again on Friday. I bet that they'll let me copy the entire book if you want a copy for reference, also.

I'll let you know what the metered fuel pressure is once I get the copy of the TO. I do remember what it is for a PT6-135, however. It's 900 psi. I remember because the motive flow that's used for the jet pumps in the fuel tanks is regulated to 450psi (1/2 of the high pressure pump pressure). I presumed that it's on the same order for the GTC-85 but I've been wrong once or twice before.

Does that include the fuel distribution circuit?

I just copied one page from the TO on Monday and it was the schematic of the FCU. I'm sure there's a real good written description, too, since the TO's are usually very complete. I talked to Premier Jets and they said I was welcome to get it copied on Friday when I plan on being in Hillsboro again.

Would it be convenient for everybody that wants a copy if I sent you a CD? I think scanning it into a CD may be cheaper than copying and it's also easier to ship. I also was considering putting it up on my website where it would be accessible (with a password) for download. Members of this BB would receive the password. Tell me what's easiest.

Terry,

CD works for me, but if it's a pain to get done, don't sweat it. I just was looking for a bit of info when I get my spare MA1A worked over this summer as a "make work" project.
Premier Turbines? I test run a Rolls engine for them a few weeks ago. Was colder than hell out, and the engine made 26,000+ IGHP. End customer was happy though.
