in speed of rotation throughout range. Adjustment of
revolution of screw will correct an error
calibration arm speeds up or slows down mechanism
of approximately 80 feet.
Check points listed in table 23 are
primary check points to be used during
position error adjustments.
x. Either change of diaphragm position or change in
length of calibration arm speeds up or slows down
mechanism with corresponding in crease or decrease in
rate of hand rotation between zero and maximum
y. Shifting diaphragm position changes speed of
rotation at high altitudes more than at low altitudes.
Shifting diaphragm toward rocking shaft speeds tip

aa. By a combination of both adjustments. speed of
rotation can be selectivelv increased or decreased in low,
middle, or high altitude ranges.
ab. The following ratios may be applied when shifting
calibration arm or diaphragm in relation to correction
obtained in instrument indication. Ratios are approximate
but ",ill help in adjusting procedure. Figures for calibration
arm are based on a final change in reading of instrument
caused by turning drum of vernier calibration tool. part
no. TE 639, one segment. Figures for diaphragm are
based on a final change in reading of instrument for initial
change in reading. caused by moving diaphragm. Refer
