This thesis contains an analysis of the failure of the instrumentation ring for measuring the combustor exit temperature and total pressure in the T63-A-700 gas turbine engine. An improved ring design has been constructed and installed. Extensions to the exhaust stacks have been installed to keep the cell temperature reasonable. A water-cooled heat exchanger was installed in place of an air-cooled heat exchanger that was not adequately cooling the oil temperature while running the engine. In the program GASTURB, a compressor map with data from the manufacturer was created and an operating line from three separate speeds was plotted.
