Incident at ST. THERESA POINT MB (CYST)
2003-04-07: The crew of PAG 622, a Metro II, rejected their takeoff on Runway 04 in St. Theresa Point due to an abnormal instrument indication. They backtracked on the runway and departed without incident on the second attempt. WSG 963, number 2 on departure, was delayed about 2-3 minutes.
2003-04-29: UPDATE Maintenance and Manufacturing reported that the aircraft had a torque indication problem, as the torque was not indicating correctly on the R/H engine. During the backtrack after the rejected takeoff, the crew noticed the torque gauge indicating correctly. It was suspected that the R/H propeller start locks did not completely release after engine start up and upon application of power the engine would not produce torque. During the backtrack, the start locks released and the following takeoff was completed without incident. The engine and indication functions were all normal during the rest of the flight without any problems. No maintenance action was taken as the problem was considered to be an operational one rather than a mechanical one and no defect was entered into the journey log by the flight crew upon return to the base. This problem has not recurred with this aircraft since this incident.
