Incident at 13 NM SE of Thompson, MB


1999-06-02: SGK 325, a Cessna 402, departed Thompson (YTH) for Oxford House with 3 people on board and when the a/c was 13 miles southeast of YTH, the pilot reported an unspecified mechanical problem. The pilot decided to return and landed safely at 2048Z with ERS on standby. The a/c was able to taxi to the ramp without assistance. OPI - Maintenance and Manufacturing UPDATE TSB reported that the left engine lost power during climb-out from Thompson. Maintenance determined that the problem was a malfunctioning fuel pump. UPDATE M. & M. reported that during aircraft inspection, #1 cylinder was replaced due to low compression. Suspected that #1 cylinder valves were sticking at higher RPM, so cylinder replaced. Further check of other cylinders found valve springs on #5 cylinder broken, #5 cylinder replaced. Nozzles cleaned and flow tested. Aircraft ground run and servicable. SDR is being submitted
