Exception may ....only occur when combat operations or matter of life or ....death in civil disasters or other emergencies are so ....urgent that they override the consequences of continued ....aircraft operation. .... 1. SUMMARY - 1.1. Background - AMCOM received a report that an airborne UH-1H cockpit transmission oil pressure gauge went to zero oil pressure. Flight was continued for 5 minutes and after landing at the home base camp the transmission seized during coast down. An investigation determined that one of the two quick disconnects affiliated with the transmission oil system had malfunctioned (internally closed the poppet valve) and cut off the flow of oil to the transmission. This quick disconnect is normally inspected at the Preventive Maintenance Daily and at Phase. Those inspections will continue until the quick disconnect is replaced. 1.2. Message Purpose - To require removal of transmission oil system quick disconnects and replace with one-piece fittings. 2. END ITEMS AFFECTED - All UH-1 series aircraft. 3.
