Cessna; 404; “Blended” Elevator Cable; ATA 2730

An L/H elevator cable (P/N 5815103-5CR) was found to be blended at the fairlead approximately 6 inches from the aft end of the cable. The technician believes “...the probable cause is from the new style stainless steel Cessna cable. They last only a fraction of the time (as compared to) the old style cables.” (Almost the same description and part number can be found for a Cessna 441: see last August’s Alerts. September’s Alerts has a similar concern for nose gear steering cables on a Cessna 402.)

Part Total Time: unknown.
