Patent image
NAWCAD

A fueldraulic actuator installation and removal tool that includes a base, an actuator chassis, and at least one articulating arm. The actuator chassis is able to communicate with a jet fueldraulic actuator located in a jet engine bay such that the actuator can be removed from the jet engine bay. The actuator chassis is connectable to the actuator at three predetermined points on the actuator. The at least one articulating arm, which is attached to the base, communicates with the actuator chassis such that the actuator chassis can be moved forward (frontwards) and backwards and left and right, and oriented at different inclines and adjusted to allow the actuator chassis to align and interface with the jet fueldraulic actuator.
