Fly Boss Posted May 22, 2016 Report Share Posted May 22, 2016 When we picked up the plane in Miami (CTLS 860LS) the throttle lever slid forward and back using one finger. Obviously it didn't hold where you set it and needed constant attention in flight. Upon arrival home, we tightened the friction block bolt to remove unnecessary slippage. This worked pretty well but after 5 hours of flight had loosened up again and caused creeping. The lock bolt can handle tightening each time without issue. Arian (FD) indicated he had never heard of a friction block actually wearing down and that perhaps the lock nut had simply lost some of its plastic locking material. Inspection of the friction block doesn't show the nut is actually loosening, which suggests the friction block may indeed be in need of attention. Has anyone else suffered similar experiences with different solutions? Danny Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
