Incident at 60NM South Norway House,MB

Summary

1996-03-19: While enroute Winnipeg from Norway House on a routine medevac, the crew noticed a fluctuation in manifold pressure and then observed oil venting from the #2 engine (right). The engine was secured. The crew advised Winnipeg of their problem and continued the flight to Winnipeg where an uneventful landing was accomplished. Company maintenance are in the process of trouble shooting the oil venting problem. Update: Maintenance engineers found that the nuts holding the starter adapter to the right engine had loosened, allowing the starter to back off and nine litres of oil to escape. The left alternator terminal wire had cracked, resulting in a loss of left alternator power. The starter was re-installed, the alternator terminal was repaired, and the aircraft returned to service.
