Tripping the gear actuator breaker

Recommended Posts

1979 M231K, When the latch over the “T” Handel for the manual gear extension is unlatched, the gear actuator breaker may trip when you put the gear switch in the up position upon takeoff.

That’s because that latch handle engages the emergency gear extension drive and jams the motor. If the handle is only partially raised and the motor can turn it can chew up the brass clutch in the gear actuator.
