10. During engine start in the -700/-800 you raise the start lever, but forget to hack the clock or note the time. The engine shows no EGT rise, and after a while, you abort the start. What has most likely happened? Does the EEC give you any protection? When should we abort the start with no EGT rise, anyway?
Answer: A wet start occurs if the EGT does not rise after the start lever is moved to IDLE. If a wet start is detected, the EEC turns off the ignition and shuts off fuel to the engine 15 seconds after the start lever is moved to IDLE. The pilot should abort the start for no EGT rise10 seconds after the start lever is raised to idle (30 seconds for inflight start).
