1. Inspect, check, service and repair landing gear, retraction systems, shock struts brakes, wheels, ti (8308)
To prevent a very rapid extension of an oleo shock strut after initial compression resulting from landing impact,
A - various types of valves or orifices are used which restrict the reverse fluid flow.
B - the metering pin gradually reduces the size of the orifice as the shock strut extends.
C - the air is forced through a restricted orifice in the reverse direction.
2. Install conventional rivets (8149)
When riveting dissimilar metals together, what precautions must be taken to prevent an electrolytic action?
A - Treat the surfaces to be riveted together with a process called anodic treatment.
B - Place a protective separator between areas of potential electrical difference.
C - Avoid the use of dissimilar metals by redesigning the unit according to the recommendations outlined in AC 43.13-1 A.
3. Inspect, check and service speed and configuration warning systems electrical brake controls and ant (8941)

B - is not parallel to the true angle of attack of the aircraft.
C - is parallel to the angle of attack of the aircraft.
4. Inspect and repair fluid quantity indicating systems (8751)
One advantage of electrical and electronic fuel quantity indicating systems is that the indicator
A - can be located any distance from the tank(s).
