Mechanics, when it’s time to inspect the Breeze-Eastern external rescue hoist, PN BL-29900-30-1, you also must calculate the hoist cycles. That means doing a full-out and full-in of the entire 295-ft hoist cable.
To accomplish this, you must access the event counter, but that can be a maintenance burden because it requires removing the cowling to view it. To reduce the burden, maintenance engineering order (MEO) B3379 provides instructions on how to modify the rescue hoist. A cowling cut-out and cover plate installation are needed to view the event counter without removing the cowling.
