Common Causes for Engine Start Problems on CaptainSim 7...

Recommended Posts

Guest godfather181

I have found that sometimes I am able to perform and engine start with no problem, and sometimes using the exact same procude, I get nothing. What gives? As I understand, all that is necessary for an engine start is ground power connected, battery on, switch #76 and #77 on, fuel pumps all on (whether there is fuel in all the tanks or not), and then just used the start switches on the overhead, hold the switch for about20025 seconds, and then fuel switch to engine turned on, thats it! Sometimes this works for me, but other times it dosen't. Anyone have any clue what I'm doing wrong?Thanks.

Fellow simmers. Here is the sequence in words and pictures that I haveused to start the C-130 after loading in FS and THEN shutting down theengines manually. The only way I have been able to get it to start from Cold & Dark is to Depress the Ctrl, Shift, and F4 keys between steps 14 and 15. Perhaps I am missing something so please let me know if that is the case.1. Temperature datum control valves to AUTO.2. Condition levers to RUN3. Left & Right wing isolation valves to NORMAL4. Essential DC Bus to ON5. Voltage and Frequency Selector Switch to the LEFT position6. Switch to Battery7. Switch to Essential DC Bus ON8. Air Turbine Motor toON9. GTC Door OPEN10. Bleed Air OPEN11. Start gas turbine compressor (red then green light will illuminate.12. Reset generator select switch and turn to ON13. Bleed Air to # 1 engine OPEN14. All Boost Pumps ON15. Depress Start Button16. Start the other engines by turning the appropriate bleed air to open.
