AD: Boeing

AD NUMBER: 2006-07-14
MANUFACTURER: Boeing
SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2006-07-14
SUMMARY:
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Boeing Model 767-200, -300, and -300F series airplanes. This AD requires verifying the part and serial numbers of certain main landing gear (MLG) bogie beam pivot pins; replacing those pivot pins with new or overhauled pivot pins if necessary; and ultimately replacing all pivot pins with new, improved pivot pins. This AD also requires repetitive lubrications and inspections of the pivot pin, and related investigative and corrective actions if necessary. This AD results from reports indicating that numerous fractures of the MLG bogie beam pivot pin have been found and that some pivot pins may have had improper rework during manufacture. We are issuing this AD to prevent fracture of the MLG bogie beam pivot pin, which could lead to possible loss of the MLG truck during takeoff or landing and consequent loss of control of the airplane.
