A fractured Air Turbine Starter (ATS) quill shaft was forwarded to the laboratory for analysis. The ATS quill shaft was found fractured by torsional overload. It appears that the rotation of the quill shaft at the driven end was restricted resulting in overload on the shaft. The ATS system may be examined to establish the cause for such restriction. Chemical analysis by EDX showed that the shaft was made of Cr-Mo-V steel and had a hardness of about RC54.
