What is unique about the bypass feature?

### Yes, but only the return side incorporates a bypass for the filters.

58

## At what PSI will the High Pressure relief valve open?

### 1225 psi +/- 150 psi

59

### Each of the two filters is equipped with a small red button (LRB).

61

## At what pressure will the hydraulic filter LRB pop?

### 70 psi +\- 10 psi

62

## When will the hydraulic caution light illuminate?

### When pressure drops below 650 psi -/+ 100 psi.

63

## What are the major components of the electrical system.

### Battery (24vdc), starter/gen, DC control unit, voltage regulator, relays, 28vdc buss, circuit breakers.

64

## What is absolutely essential to remember when executing a GPU start?

### If the start was accomplished with battery off, make sure and turn it on prior to removing the GPU power. DO NOT attempt to power the system if GPU power was removed prior to turning battery on.

65

## What procedure MUST be completed if a GPU start was accomplished with battery off and GPU power removed with out the battery first turned on?

### Shut down engine, perform Piston parking procedure,ensure proper voltage and restart.

66

## what is best glide airspeed in the 407?

### 80 Kts

10 degrees - Left, Right, tail down.

Nose down 5 degrees.

71

## How many hydraulic filters are there in the B407?

### 2, one on the pressure and one on the return.

72

## At what differential pressure will the hydraulic filters LRB, pop?

### 70 +/- 10 psi.

73

## Can temperature play a role in the LRB’s popping in the hydraulic system of the 407?
