Jet Ranger Monorail Sunvisor System (R1460000)
•
Take the Jet Ranger monorail system and carefully
place it inside the helicopter cockpit.
•
Position the rail so that the brackets align with the
existing fasteners in the aluminum skin or Kydex trim
material. The brackets have been slotted to allow for
variances in the fastener spacing. Remove these
fasteners.
•
Secure the two main front brackets with the
AN526C832R10 machine screws provided. Do not tighten at this time; only hold the rail so either side can
be secured.
•
When all brackets have their respective fasteners attached, tighten all fasteners.
•
Install both visors onto the monorail with the thumb tension knob inboard.
•
Install retainer clip to the back of the thumb tension knob.
•
Remove the protective covering from the visor lens.
•
Proceed to Operating Instructions at this point.
Long Ranger Monorail Sunvisor System (R1461000)
•
Carefully place the Long Ranger monorail system into
the helicopter.
•
With the help of an assistant, hold the rail up to the front
overhead so that the side view of the front bracket is as
it appears in Figure B-5.
•
With the front brackets equally spaced from the center,
insure that the rail has adequate clearance around the

speed reference box on the center column. Mark the front bracket slots on the Kydex trim.
•
Drill a small pilot hole (~1/16”) in the center of the slot mark, drilling through the Kydex and then through the
aluminum sheet box structure. (DRILL ONLY INTO THE INTERIOR SECTION OF THE BOX
STRUCTURE and not the structural outer surface.)
•
Drill a 11/32” hole in the Kydex only for clearance for the NAS42DD516 spacer.
•
Drill a hole in the interior portion of the aluminum box structure with a #2 drill for an A8K75 rivnut.
(Installation hole size references are .221” min. and .226 max.) DRILL ONLY IN THE INTERIOR SECTION
OF THE BOX STRUCTURE.
•
Install the front bracket
rivnuts.
•
Using the NAS42DD516
spacers and
AN526C832R12
fasteners provided,
fasten the rail
temporarily into place. Center the side brackets on the side panels and mark the slot locations as with the
front brackets.
•
Remove the monorail and repeat the procedure to install the A8K75 rivnuts. AGAIN, DRILL ONLY INTO
THE INTERIOR SECTION OF THE ALUMINUM BOX STRUCTURE.
•
Reinstall the monorail using the NAS42DD516 spacers, AN526C832R12 fasteners and AN960D9 washers.
Bell 206 Series with Factory Installed Air Conditioning (R1462000)
•
With the help of an assistant, hold the monorail up in the Jet Ranger cockpit with the side brackets fairly
well centered on the horizontal trim panels between the door and eyebrow windows.
•
The front brackets should mate up to the trim running on top
of either front window and to either side of the air
conditioning vents, as approximated in Figure B-10.
•
Make sure there is a minimum of .150” clearance between
the rail and air conditioning ducts and the rail and window
center post. If there is not sufficient clearance, move the rail
to the rear and/or shim front brackets slightly.
•
When proper clearance is obtained, make sure rail is square
and mark center of forward bracket slots on Kydex trim.
•
Mount the front two brackets first with the following
procedure.
•
Drill a small pilot hole (~1/16”) in the center of the slot mark, drilling through the Kydex and then through the
aluminum sheet box structure. DRILL ONLY INTO THE INTERIOR SECTION OF THE BOX STRUCTURE
and not the structural outer surface.
•
Drill an 11/32” hole in the Kydex only for clearance for the NAS42DD516 spacer.

Operating Instructions
To operate your visors, loosen the thumb tension knob by turning it counterclockwise, and slide the visor in the
desired direction while holding on to the knob. (A snap ring is installed on the rear of the thumb knob to prevent the
pilot from inadvertently over-loosening the visor assembly.)
Because of the fairly sharp bends in some parts of the rail, the thumb tension knob must be turned all the way
counterclockwise to negotiate these areas.
To lock the visor in place, simply tighten the thumb knob by turning it clockwise.
Your visors incorporate a swivel modification that allows the visor to rotate in the vertical axis. Swivel tension can
be increased or decreased by adjusting the set screw on the side of the visor clamping block.
The visor assembly will stow almost anywhere on the rail, but for the most head room, it is suggested that the visor
be stowed just forward of the middle side bracket.
To stow the visors simply tighten the thumb tension knob and rotate the visor up. There is a small learning curve in
determining how tight the visor should be. After several operations the visor assembly can be stowed with ease
and the correct tension used.

The above figures show where to rotate the visor for storage
and that the thumb tension knob is held to push/pull the visor
assembly.
ROTATE UP TO STOW
Optional passenger compartment visors can be stowed at any
point on the rail, however, the most preferable place would be over the least used seat in the case of the Long
Ranger, or on the opposite side in the Jet Ranger.
