>the exhaust gas temperature pegged at the bottom of the scale. If the >engine were to seperate from the aircraft the indications would be identical. Not necessarily. Could be pegged high or low, might even give a semi-normal indication - all depends on how the wiring is damaged when the engine departs. For example, an open circuit on an oil temp indication system (727/737) results in pegged high indication, a short gives you pegged low. In any event, isn't an EGT gauge that is pegged low a very unusual indication for an engine that has just been shutdown?
