Abstract : This report describes the results of an 8-month fuel control reliability test program to evaluate new dynamic fuel seals, ultrafine fuel filtration and the vibration susceptibility of the Chandler Evans TA-2S hydromechanical fuel control. Previous studies conducted under Army Contract DAAJ02-72-C-0110 identified these areas as potential generic design deficiencies in hydromechanical controls. (Modified author abstract)
