WHERE, oH, WiERE pip YoUR PL MAN GO?
There's been a big squawk in a lotta outfits because so many men who
don't know supply get assigned to repair parts supply jobs.
Maybe you've been wondering why you've been having such a rough
lime gelling repair parts to keep your equipment maintained. It could be
just lhat ,a- said: No trained repair parts PLL supply man.
The -olution to this problem could be right there in your own outfit,
,. or. at nmost, in the next company or battalion.
S "Hozzat?" you say.
S The A rmy has trained oodles of supply men. You can spot 'em
bh a key number, 76, in their MOS. The ones you're most in-
*\ lerested in are 76A and 76Y.
Your unit's personnel clerk can spot any of these MOS
C "l in a jiffy. And, with the backing of your unit's CO (remem-
JPlpI P. ber, bad supply and maintenance sure can hurt his
Missionn, you could very well get a 76-er on that re.
O N0 pair parts supply job today.
You might call this "Operation Spirit of 76"
THIS SUPPSY ... getting those "76" supply men in supply slots.
ROOM IS A MESSe it a

BRAKE PEDAL. Depress the brake
pedal and hold down. The brake pedal
should not creep down. If a loss of foot
pressure is noted.there's a leak in the
system and it must be corrected soon-
est. Make sure there's plenty of space
between the bottom of the brake pedal
and the floorboard when pedal is de-
pressed. If the space is less than 2
pedal travel, the brakes should be G IT
checked and adjusted. ADJUSTED I



CLUTCH PEDAL ADJUSTMENT: See
S /4 -if there is enough free travel. Free pedal
travel is the movement of the clutch
pedal downward before pressure in-
-creases and the clutch starts to disenc
gage. All clutch adjustment checks are
extremely sensitive and should be made
DOES YOUR FREE TRAVEL by depressing the clutch pedal by hand,
AGREE WITH THIS TABLE not with the feet.







UNUSUAL NOISES: Run engine at a
fast idle (do not "race" or "gun" engine)
and check under the hood of vehicle. If
you hear any unusual noises, turn off
the engine immediately, and call your
supervisor. If oil gage does not indicate
pressure within a few seconds, stop the
engine, and call your supervisor.

ENGINE CONTROLS: Check engine
controls, including the accelerator,
throttle, and choke, to see that they are
functioning properly.


I INSTRUMENT CHECK: r,
After the engine has been
warmed up by idling for ap-
proximately 3 minutes, the
instruments may be check-
ed as follows:

a. Oil Pressure: Oil pressure-when engine is idling-should register not
less than 15 pounds. Pressure indicates engine oil pump is working. But, remember,
oil pressure does not mean the crankcase is full! Pressure readings may go up or
down as engine speed is increased or decreased, but a sudden drop or uneven change
of pressure indicates trouble. Stop the engine and find out what's causing it.

b. Battery-Generator Indicator: With switch ON (engine not running), needle-should
register 2/3 up in the yellow panel; with engine running at high idle (about 1,500
RPM), needle should register 2/3 up in the green panel (at the nub).

e. Air Brake Pressure (if applicable):
c. Tachometer: Tachometer should This gage should indicate the pressure
be registering the RPM of the engine. at which the brakes will operate effec-
tively. (100 to 105 PSI for 2/2 and 5 ton
trucks.)
0 d. Fuel Gage: Fuel gage should reg-
ister full if the previous operator did his f. Temperature Gage: Normal range
last after operation check. is from 160 to 180 degrees.

RFETY DEVICES: HOLD THE WATER,
MAN, IT'S JUST A
SAFETY BUZZER.
(^----^|-


a Air Pressure Warning Buzzer: This buzzer is a low pressure warning device
and will buzz until your operating pressure reaches 65 PSI. Do not move your ve-
hicle until you have operating pressure, and the warning buzzer has stopped.


b. Lights: Make sure they're all burn-
ing, both high and low beam, and that
tail and stoO lights are ooeratine.


d. Windshield Wipers: Make sure
blades are in good condition and wipers
nneratp


DUMP HOIST (if applicable): Raise
and lower the dump body to make sure
it will operate. Check for leaks.


c. Mirrors: Make sure the mirrors
are not damaged. Adjust for driving.


e. Horn: Make sure it blows.

* ACCIDENT REPORT AND IDENTIFICA-.
TION FORMS: Make sure you have Ac-
cident Report and Identification Forms
in the glove compartment (Std Form 91
and DD Form 518).

BRAKE ADJUSTMENTS: Make
sure all wheels are braking equally.
Notice any loss of pressure in the
pedal when you apply the brakes.



STEERING: Be sure there's not
too much free play in your steering
wheel. Notice any hard steering,
wheel wobble, or wandering of
your vehicle from side to side. If
you think something is wrong,stop
and check.


.-: i. ..- .... ... ...... .



UNUSUAL NOISES: Keep a
sharp ear for any unusual
noises in the engine, clutch,
transmission, transfer case,
drive shaft and rear end. An
unusual noise is any noise you
do not normally hear during
operation.


CLUTCH ADJUSTMENT:
There should be no slipping or
chatter when it starts to en-
gage. Be sure you do not
"ride" the clutch. (Keep your
foot off that pedal!.)


ENGINE OPERATION: Be sure
your engine operates smoothly at
all times. Listen for any knocks
(valve knock or gas knock). Make
sure your engine is hitting on all
cylinders and is getting gas prop-
erly. Report any malfunction.


INSTRUMENTS: Instrument
check should be continuous
through the day. A casual glance at
the dashboard will tell you when
your vehicle is operating properly.
Instruments to check include oil
pressure, bat-gen, tachometer,
fuel, air pressure, temperature and
speedometer gages.

OR MORE.

LEAKS: Make a quick turn around
with the truck, checking on the ground
under the vehicle for any excessive
leaks. Take a quick look under the hood
for any gas, oil, or water ;eaks.


LOOSE NUTS AND BOLTS: Look under
carriage and body mountings for loose
or missing nuts and bolts.

START THE ENGINE: Listen for any
unusual noises you may have not no-
ticed during operation. Look at the fol-
lowing safety devices with the engine
running:


a. Air Pressure Warning Buzzer:
Make sure the air pressure warning
buzzer is operating and cuts out at cor
rect pressure Do this by bleeding down
the air pressure to below 65 PSI.

It's recommended that you keep the top speed for your M151-series 1/4-ton
truck under 50-MPH for the first 1,000 miles of operation. This's for proper
break-in of drive line components and service brakes.
Whether new or already broken in, never torture your quarter-tonner with:

M113/MII3AI WEIGHT CLASS
Confused about the weight classification for M113/M113A1 vehicles, includ-
ing the M577A1? It's 11... like FM 5-36 (May 65) says in Ch 1 (Apr 66), Table
IV-1, page AIV-9. TM 9-2300-257-10 will get this new word.

$g SWITCHING' TIME
There's a new starter switch for G744-series 5-ton diesel and multifue trucks
and for those G742-series 2-1/2-ton multifuel trucks with the LD 465-1 engine
(M35A2 etc.). Ask for Switch, starter, FSN 2920-133-9629 the next time you
order one. It replaces Switch, FSN 2920-781-1953.


Have you got the new vertical exhaust stack on your M52A1 truck tractor (or
other straight diesel 5-tonner)? The exhaust pipe-to-turbocharger clamp assembly
is FSN 2990-972-2605 -same as used on the older exhaust system-listed in
TM 9-2320-211-20P w/Ch 1 and Ch 2 (Apr 67).






LAYOFF FILTER

So you got a little leak around the
outlet opening on the primary fuel filter
head of your M60A1 tank ... or maybe
it's on your M60, M48A3 or M103A2
tank or AVBL or M728 CEV.
The thing not to do is try to stop the
leak by tightening up real hard on the
tapered pipe reducer FSN 4730-542-
3253.
What'll happen, you're sure to crack
the filter head. Then you've got real
trouble.
The way to stop the leak is with a
little thread and gasket sealing com-

pound FSN 8030-656-1426. Put it on

M17C RANGE FINDER REMINDER

Here's a reminder on that M17C range finder in your M60/M60A1 tank: Keep
your cotton-pickin' hands off the ICS and halving knobs unless you know what
you're doing.
The dope on using 'em right is on page 2-85 of Ch 8, (Sep 69) of your TM 9-
2350-215-10.
For routine range finder operation leave the red covers in place, or you'll get

FILTER UNITS

a FOR CV'S


If your requests for gas particulate filter units for your combat vehicles have
been bouncing back, here's why-
Filter units for CV's are now called installed equipment. The units will
eventually be pulled out of your TOE and added to the vehicle's BIIL's.
CV's can get filter units in 1 of 3 ways:
1. Installed by MWO at support level
2. Installed by the manufacturer
3. Installed by depot
Even though your vehicle's TM may already cover PM SOP on a filter unit (like
Ch 10, TM 9-2300-224-20, for example), filter units have been OK'd for the fol-
lowing vehicles only.


M48A2 and M48A2C tanks M8A2 or M8A3 9-2350-208-30/4


The M551 Sheridan gets the M8A3 filter unit, and the M728 combat engineer
vehicle gets the M13A1 filter unit. Both are installed by the manufacturer.
Other CV's will get their filter units installed as their MWO's are published.
So keep an eye out for the filter unit OK for your combat vehicles. If your equip-
ment is already authorized a filter unit, and the MWO hasn't been completed, give
your support outfit a DA Form 2407 work request.
Make a note somewhere handy-a request for a filter unit must provide ex-
ception data. In addition to identifying the MWO, the DA Form 2765-1 must also
18






list the nomenclature, model and manufacturer's serial number (not the USA
number) for the vehicle concerned.
Remember, once installed the filter unit stays with the vehicle all the way back
to rebuild.
THE MASKS
On your requests for masks to go with the filter units installed in your CV's,
you must provide exception data as to the vehicle's model number and the type
of radio it uses (FM or AM).

The M25 and M25AI tank masks are for The M14A1 or M14A2 tank masks work
use with FM radio sets. with the AM sets.







The M14A2 mask, however, can be used with the FM radios when its mike is
changed like it says in Ch 2, TM 3-4240-223-15, para 38.1. After the mike swap
it becomes an M25 mask.

TANK WHEEL TORQUE
Without wheels your track vehicle
won't roll.
So why is that news?
Because roadwheels and compensat-
ing idler wheels for some tracks are in
real short supply.
So what can you do about it?
You can get the longest possible life
our of your roadwheels and compensat-
ing idlers by making sure all wheel re-
taining nuts are torqued as tight as the
TM's say. TORQUE

Besides keeping your wheel retaining
nuts right you can help the supply prob-

ing in to supply all unserviceable-
repairable wheels on the shortage list
for depot rebuild.

105-MM I


HOWITZERSc17


C:ZI:


You can ram yourself into the next world with the wrong rammer-extractor for
your 105-MM howitzer.
It's easy enough to do because at least 6 different wrong models (some of them
very dangerous) are now in the field.
With the wrong rammer a tip of the ramming plate can set off the primer.
So, check all the rammers in your outfit and if you've got any that don't shape
up, ship 'em out. Here's how you check: EXTRACOR
Look for the part number (on the extractor). 61/2" R TR
Exroaor 1i/2"
Howitzer Model Pert Number FULCRUM
M101 or MIOAI 7306159 RAMMING
M102orM108 11577644 PLATESM101 OR M1A
Any rammer that can't pass the part number test should be taken out of service,
but even if the part number is right the rammer could still be wrong.
Seems 2 or 3 different models were issued under the same part number. So
check both the fulcrum length and the distance between the ramming plates. You
have the right rammer only if everything matches up like this .
Minimum distance between
Howitzer Model Panrl umber Fulcrum Length ramming plates
M101 orMIO1AI 7306159 6h/ inches 1/2i inches
M102 or M108 11577644 6% inches I1/z inches
20


...--
Even with the right rammer you'ree still not home free and clear. If it's burred,
bent out of shape or banged up it's dangerous. so turn it in for a new one.
Here're the FSN's and authority for the rammers:

M101 or MIO1Al (FSN 4933-730-6159) ..... Ch 5 to TM 9-325
MI02 (FSN 4933-927-7277) TM 9-1015.234-12
M108 IFSN 4933-927-7277) ..... .............. Ch 4 to TM 9-2350217-10
So now you have the right rammer, and it's in good condition. You could still
blow things up by using it upside down.
It's easy to figure out which is upside down and which is right side up. Just put
the rammer tool into the breech recess so the rounded edges of the ramming
plates will make contact with the cartridge case.


This will happen with the MI101 and
M 101A 1 if you put the fulcrum into the
breechblock guides in the breech ring
with the tips of the extractor pointing
to the right.


With the I102 or M108 you
position the tool so the extractor
tips are pointing straight down-
wards.


RIGHT FOR MOI DOWN FOR
AND MIOIAl M102 AND MIO8

The fulcrum should slide freely in the guides. If you put it in right but it fits
so loosely it could tip in the guides it is too worn or damaged to use-so get a
new one.
You don't need to use a lot of muscle. If you can't seat the cartridge easily, take
it out and put in a new one.
21 i[--M ORE


IL"~'".P.~~~'~.~rr'3~"L~EE~rPi~a






Suppose you need a rammer but you turned in your old one and you don't
have the new one yet... What to do?
You can sometimes seat a round that won't chamber when you first load it by
using the open end of a fired cartridge case as a rammer.
E-A-S-Y DOES IT

I-


To get out an unfired round stuck in the chamber, use the bell rammer on the
end of the sectional cleaning staff, and gently poke it out.




If the round has been fired, poke out the empty cartridge with the cleaning
staff without the bell rammer on the end.
These are field expedients to be used only until you get the right rammer-
extractor.

CARRIAGE, BREECH

OR CONTROL?

Dear Half-Mast,
Some towed
howitzers like
the M0IAI -
have serial numbers on the breechblock and the carriage
but none that apply to the complete weapon.
SO WHAT NUMBER DO WE
USE ON LOG RECORDS OR

-CPT.J.Z. Jr.
Dear Captain J. Z.,
For the M 101A1 and other howitzers that don't .. ......,.
have serial numbers for the complete weapon, use
their carriage serial numbers. 2
The rule in TM 38-750 on use of DA Form 2408-8
control numbers doesn't apply to these howitzers.

175-MM GUNNERS...

AUTOFRETTAGE TUBES
ARE COMING

WOT KINDA
TUBE- LIFE
YOU GET ON
THAT PIECE?






A new M113E1 autofrettage tube for your M107 175-MM SP gun is the latest
round of good news to zero in on gunnery circles these days.
This El model will almost double interim tube life by letting you reach 700
effective full-charge rounds between trade-ins... compared to 400 EFC rounds on
the current M113 tube. So, you don't have to ask for tube changes as often.

You'll only be able to tell the differ-
ence by the bell shaped muzzle on the
autofrettage tube. But your supply man
will know the difference by its FSN:
1025-113-5636 for the complete can-
non, including all breech components M113 M113E1
... FSN 1025-113-5637 for the tube 400 EFC 700 EFC

Now you see it-now you don't. So
you're wondering what's happened to
that armorer's tool kit. Here's the story:
Armorer's Tool Kit, FSN 5180-754-
0640, LIN 453650 W31634, SM 10-4-
5180-A19 (Jan 62) was changed by SB
9-196 (Apr 67). The SB added 27 tools,
deleted 11 and changed the set to Small

4933-95-CL-A07. The latest pub is
dated April 1969.
If you need a complete tool kit, order
FSN 4933-357-7770, but if you just
need to bring your kit up to date, order
the individual items you need.
Here's what you should have in your

So Orwell Giggit
trod the ground
on that last patrol
from his compound
But, it happened on that
hot, wet day -
they hit an ambush
on their way.
And the shoot-out that
o'course took place
found our troop Giggit
a sorry case.
His weapon froze 'twas
rust bedecked!
The firing pin he'd
never checked
The muzzle blocked by
caked-up mud!
The whole dang piece plumb
fouled with crudl
Just a couple weeks of
plain neglect
was enough to see his
deros wrecked
It's six months since
Giggit was found -
he's still short-time
but still around!

.7TM 7-0-210.


























When equipment, components and parts are on shipping orders and under
wraps, each item's got to be identified-no buts about it.
At every check-point in transit somebody needs to know "What goes there?"
So ... mark it before you move it.






Supplies move smoothly-up front and back to repair or storage depots-
only if they're easy to identify. Even eyeball-to-lockpin or keyway, some items
are hard to recognize. When boxed or inside other containers, they've got to be
marked with:




I "
1EN 2530-705-8039
10EgI. PLATE
EA


Mark this info- in 1-2-3 order-on all
shipping-out containers, using either a -
Stencil (on containers such as metal, wood
and cardboard boxes and cartons).


Tag (on bags, bales, bundles or other con-
tainers where labels and stencils are hard to
apply), or
Label (on containers like cartons and fiber
or plastic wrappers). 1 /
/ ^^iSSI


WHAT TO MARK
Identification markings are needed on:
I. All bags, cartons and 2. All shipping containers (fiberboard, wood
packing envelopes or sacks and re-usable metal) -except CONEX, MIL-
that go inside shipping VAN and SEAVAN. No outside identification
containers, is needed on CONEX, MILVAN and SEAVAN
s containers-just on the items you put in 'em.








3. All unpacked items-except
vehicles and other major items that
can be readily identified by data
plates.


STENCIL LABEL OR TAG
Use the stencil, label or tag that best
fits the container, sticks m it and shows
the identity of the item as it moves.
r __________________________________________


STENCIL with black ink, applied by
spra), roller or brush. For slick surfaces
like metal or glass, the ink is FSN 75 10-
191-6030. For porous or grainy sur-
faces like wood or fiberboard, use FSN
'510-161-0811.
For items shipped unboxed or un-
crated, stencil directly on the item. Use
gasoline soluble paint, FSN 8010-59"-
8235 (black) or FSN 8010-597-8238
(white).


LABEL with any type of paper label,
using one of these 2 adhesives: FSN
8040-053-8452 or FSN 8040-656-0814.
If the label goes on a package placed
inside another container, it needs ad-
hesive onl on the underside.
On the other hand, if a label's applied
to an outside container adhesive must
be used to stick the label to the package
and coated over the outside of the label
to protect it from the weather.


TAG the item if neither a stencil nor
a label ill do the trick. Use tag. FSN
8135-238-691", and attach it to thecon-
tainer nith the wire that comes with
the tag.

a container, make sure it's ready for
marking.
First, check the old markings-if
any. If an item is still packed in the con-
tainer it came in, you may not need to
re-pack and re-mark. But be sure this
is so.
39







If you're re-packing items in an old I'M PUTTING
container, be wary. They may have the 7HE ADDRESS
same name but a different FSN. HERE
When the old container has any IT
markings that don't apply, paint 'em
out. Use lusterless lacquer, FSN 8010-
527-3196 or lusterless enamel, FSN
8010-291-0889.
And make sure any surface to be '
marked has no dirt, oil or grease. .
You're ready to mark-but where?
There's no fixed rule, but it's best to
put the identity on one side, the address THE STENCIL
ontheother. IGOES HERE,
Markings are better protected on the
sides than on bottom or top.
MISCELLANEOUS MARKING
Miscellaneous unpacked items like
rods, coils and reels may need a special
r RODS word. If there's a suitable spot, stencil

tion on 2 plain tags. And put the ship-
o ping address on a third tag (DD Form
1387-1) or label (DD Form 1387).

PALLEHZED LOADS


Palletized loads made up of a num-
ber of items get special treatment. Each
individual container on the pallet gets
its own identification label-plus ad-
dress labels for the pallet.


It's OK to mix FSN's in a shipping
container-if it's properly packed and
marked.
If available, 3 copies of DD Form
1348-1 should be attached to each sepa-
rate item or container inside the ship-
ping box. Also, each inside item or con-
tainer should be identified.
Outside, 1 copy of the DD 1348-1 for
each item should be placed in a packing
list envelope, FSN 8105-290-4365, and
attached to the outside container with a
protective cover, FSN 8105-926-2260.
Then the outside container gets
marked "CONSOLIDATED PACK" -
instead of the usual individual item
identification.

If it's a box-type pallet, with individ-

Check each outgoing container to
make sure:
All old markings that don't apply are
painted out.
New markings match the contents in
FSN, name and quantity.
Markings (or packing lists) identify
contents without need to open the

MARKING


S Here's a list of needed marking
materials:
Lusterless lacquer (sand-color), FSN 8010-
527-3196 (1 Gal).
Lusterless enamel (sand yellow), FSN 8010-
291-0889 (5 Gal).
Stencil ink, black, FSN 7510-191-6030 (1
Gal).
Stencil ink, black, FSN 7510-161-0811 (1

Address tells who sent it, who gets it
and any necessary intermediate de-
livery points.
MATERIALS
Gasoline soluble paint, white, FSN 8010-
597-8238 (1 Gal).
Label adhesive, FSN 8040-053-8452, FSN
8040-656-0814, or FSN 8040-664-7073(1 Gal).

If you're too far in-country to find these
items in supply, with a retrograde date com-
ing up too fast to let you requisition 'em, you
can use substitutes.







ACCEPT THESE SUBSTITUTES
Paint (any thar contrasts with the iga j/
container or item) for identification
marking. Pelt tip pens and grease pen- -
cils also may be used.
Clear (see-through) envelopes may
be used as covers for identification
markings and address-when attached
to container. f0


Clear pressure-sensitive tape (non-
plaid, that is) is a substitute for adhesive
when attaching labels. White or solid
color tapes also can provide a place for
identification markings with felt tip pen
or grease pencil.









Plain white paper can sub for DD
1348-1 when making packing lists for
a "Consolidated Pack." But make sure
the identification info is complete.


Pen or pencil can be used to mark
labels if protected by clear pressure-
sensitive rape when no other adhesive is
used. (Liquid adhesive might smear
'em.)


Staples and tacks may be used to at-
tach labels or tags to containers-in-
stead of adhesive.
When no stencil brush or roller can
be had, a paint brush or wad of cloth
dipped in stencil ink or paint can be
used for stenciling.
Keep in mind, though, that these
make-do substitutes are subs-not to
be used when first-choice items are
handy or can be ordered in time.
Keep in mind, too, that the markings
covered up to now are minimum mark-
ings. Some items also may require
special-handling marks or precautions,
including identification of dangerous
materiel (like explosives) or sensitive
and security-type equipment.
If you need a full check-out on these,
get your mitts on MIL-STD-129, Mark-
ing for Shipment and Storage.
The job's better than half done,
though, when you can tell at a glance
what's inside a carton (by FSN, name
and amount) and where it's going.

SOME HELPFUL HINTS \
It's wise to start at the top of the blank space when you're adding those items
because some are 2 lines long.
Once you get your forms up to date it's easier to add those write-in items as they
come in or at least keep one master copy of all forms up to date.
Pencil the dates after the DA Form numbers on page 37 of your DA Pamphlet
310-10 (Feb 69). It's easy to erase and add new dates as the old forms are made
obsolete.
When you receive your write-in notices from the Publications Center, make
sure you send them back within the time limit specified on the form.


















Some outfits are making a sloppy "serial stew" out of their equipment records.
They fail to cross-check serial numbers with equipment data plates and block 4
of DA 2408-8. It makes a mish-mash of all their records.

2408-7 and covers an end item, THE SE

ponent serial number.


(Some common end items don't have serial numbers. In these unusual cases,
pluck the "control number" from the upper left of DA 2408-8 and put it in the
serial number block, too. This becomes the end item serial number from now
on-for DA 2408-8 and all other records.)
To make sure you're not in a serial number stew:

Make sure those serial numbers come from the right data plate and match the
numbers as shown on DA 2408-8, and no inspector can cook up a stew that'll put
you behind the 8-ball.

SKIN DECON PAD





Yep. The skin wiping pad in your M13 decontaminating and reimpregnating
kit, FSN 4230-907-4828, should fit over three fat, gloved fingers-like it shows
in fig 6, TB 3-4230-207-10 (Mar 66). But, if the pad in your M13 kit circles only
two fingers, don't bust it trying for a 3-finger loop...you've got a short pad.
But, it's OK. Just use your pad like it says in the TB. Later kits will provide 3-
finger pads.


PUBS FOR OTHER SERVICES
You can get info for ordering Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, and Defense
Supply Agency pubs and blank forms in Ch 6 (Jun 66) to AR 310-1 (Mar 62).
Sect V of the change lists the addresses as well as the form to use for your requests.


MTOE IS A MUST
Sure you can use AR 725-8 (Oct 68), para 7a(2), to hang on to or request major
components that've been pulled from your sets, kits, outfits, etc. But that's just a
temporary OK. Your outfit also has to put in an MTOE listing the needed items.
Check your local SOP for scoop on MTOE's, and see AR 310-31, Sect IV.

Here's how to go about cleaning the

First off, latch on to a quart of dry
cleaning solvent.
If you're lucky enough to have air
pressure handy pour the solvent into
the pneumatic oil gun which is part of
the organizational maintenance A, B,
or C tool kit.
Out in the dusty boonies get a hand-
pumped water fire extinguisher. Make
sure it's empty and clean. Pour the sol-
vent into the extinguisher so you'll be
able to spray 1 quart. With your trusty
general mechanic's tool kit in hand,

Before you crewchiefs and mechanics reach for the solvent, tho, be sure you
stash pencils, pens, matches, watches--any loose items. You're going to motor
over and run the engine, and the suction developed will snatch dropped items.
You know what that means ... FOD for real!

No shortcuts here, please! Like never try
to dean the engine by spraying the engine
with the separator on. If you do, you'll wash
the dirt in the separator right into the engine
(ughl).
Next, take the inlet air temperature sensing
element off the inlet housing by removing the
four retaining bolts. You do this to keep the
element from getting plugged with dirt

Spray the quart of the dry cleaning
solvent evenly thru all sections of the

When the solvent is used up stop motoring the engine and let it set for an
hour or so to allow the solvent to soften and loosen the caked-on dirt.
The dirt really builds up on inlet guide vanes, so go over them with a small,
round, fiber brush with a long handle when you return from your break.

SPRAY WITH WATER
Have your favorite throttle jockey start the engine and run it at flight idle.
To get rid of the dirt loosened by the dry cleaning solvent, spray clean, fresh
water evenly into all sections of the inlet housing at a rate of 2 gallons per
minute for about 2 minutes.
After the water treatment run the engine from 2 to 5 minutes to dry it out.
Shut down the engine.






Eye the inlet guide vanes and compressor for cleanliness. If the engine is still
dirty, a second cleaning should do the trick.
Clean the air temperature sensing element with dry cleaning solvent and put
it back on the inlet housing. Secure the nuts and lockwire the mounting bolts.

There're no limits because you're not

'Course, if the bearing is worn from

S ON A WHIP ANTENNA TIEDOWN...
SAFETY'S THE END ITEM
COMMUNICATIONS





A tied-down radio antenna can meet the official requirements, pass every test,
but still-
Still, it can play a part in some entirely unexpected accidents, like maybe the
antenna tip in a Joe's face, or eyeball.
Man doesn't have to be a brain-trust to figure out that accidental sort of an-
tenna-tipping won't be doin' anybody's eyeball or face any good.
So it takes a little something' to make
that tied-down antenna safer. UI
YOUR
Like a rubber ball, or a plastic ball. Yp
Or a plastic cushion you can build for TAPE A BAll ON I...
yourself, right on the antenna.
If you use a ball, you'll have to
scrounge one up yourself.
But you can go after a 30-foot roll of ... OR CUSHION
polyethylene electrical insulation tape WITH TAPE
with FSN 5970-240-0620. It's listed on
Pg 3.44 of Fed Cat C5970-IL-A (Nov
69).
Just wrap the tape around the an-
tenna tip, stretching the tape as you go.
Keep this up until you get a comfy
cushion of the soft stuff.
If you use the rubber-ball method, you could wrap tape around the ball and
anchor the ball with the tape a little below its bottom.
The extra protection should whittle down the chances of some unhappy Joe
getting his eyeball skewered by a stray antenna tip-and it won't interfere with
the performance of your antenna.
Further along the sunny side, if you're using the MS-118A mast section you're
in luck. You can request an antenna tip assembly (FSN 5985-930-7223) for the
MS-118A. It's listed on Pg 74, Fed Cat C5985-IL-A (Nov 69).
And for bright times in the future, there's a plan in the mill to authorize pro-
tective antenna tip assemblies for the AT-1095/VRC antenna element.
Meanwhile, you can use a ball, insulating tape, fishing corks, bottle stoppers,
styrofoam and other non-conductive items, as field expedients.

Insects ? They can mean bad times
sometimes-especially when they zoom
around an AN/TVS-3 searchlight set
and end up in the fan motor.
They can clog the exhaust blower
filter and the heat exchanger cooling

light pronto.
What's the answer-- ?

you the word on daily cleaning of the
exhaust blower filter and heat ex-
changer cooling fins. Eyeball Para 4-4

Don't sweat it if the replacement fuse
you asked for comes through with a
higher voltage rating than what you
wanted. Use it.
The thing you gotta be sure of is that
the amperage rating is what your TM
calls for and the voltage rating is the
same or higher. Like, if you need a 5-
amp job and you get a 10-amp replace-
ment, send it back. The amp rating
can't vary; neither can the blow time.
You need a slo-blo for a slo-blo, etc.
Naturally, any replacement you get
has gotta be the same shape and size as
the one's it's replacing.
But like we said, voltage variance is
allowable providing it varies up-
wards.

a stock number available for the piece
that's missing from the equipment.

,HOW ABOUT
THIS WASHER? -


This could mean a few complications
and holdups, like higher-level fabrica-
tion, for example.




THIS COULD
LEAD TO A LONG
WAIT WHILE
REMOVE
PARTS ARE
REQUISITIONED!





A copyholder, f'rinstance, for your
teletypewriter can't be ordered as an as-
sembly because it has no overall stock
number. It's gotta be broken down and
ordered by its individual parts.
Takes time. So, you'd definitely in-
clude any removed copyholder with the
teletypewriter you send to support.
Make it a special point to send sup-
port all the parts you have-even if
they seem bad. In some cases they may
be usable.
'Course, small parts do sometimes
get lost in the field or on maneuvers,
and there's not much you can do about
that except be careful.
But when it comes to hangin' onto
regular removed parts, and sending' 'em
to support along with your end equip-
menr. that's where you can be real
careful.
A nd that's where it counts.






NO PLIERS, P1


Pliers... ? They're strictly taboo on nickel-cadmium batteries. Never use 'cm.
Tightening those.metal plier jaws on the cell filler vent caps could cause the caps
to crack. Use the nylon wrench that's issued with the battery; it's FSN 5120-059-
4876 on Pg 3.312 of Fed Cat C5120-IL-A (Jan 69), if you need one.

LANYARD LAMENT
For the want of an eye the chassis was lost.
No poet wrote it. That's a straight PM fact, taken from the pen which wrote
the last DA Form 2407 work request on an AN/PRR-9, AN/PRT-4 squad
radio lanyard eyelet.


UH- OH
I'M OFF TO *
SALVAGE () o 5!
AGA IN




t LANYARD
Some Joes force the lanyard snap
through the eyelet on the receiver or EYET SNAP
transmitter cases instead of looping the
lanyard cord through the eyelets. Re-
sult, regularly, is that the eyelet breaks
off.
Follow-up result: the whole chassis,
or case, must be salvaged because the LOOP THE CORD
eyelet can't be repaired. .
'Nother method of breaking the eyelet is swinging the receiver or transmitter
by the lanyard.
So-o-o-o, keep the snap end of the lanyard away from the eyelet... and swing
your partner.

&w? 5th W'eel

Have the locking dogs on the fifth
wheels of your 5-ton tactical truck trac-
tor been breaking? No sweat. Order the
new sturdier fifth wheel assembly under
FSN 2510-809-7791 using RIC B24. You'll
still order fifth wheel assembly, FSN
2510-736-7608 for use on your 2/2-ton
tractors.


!54'S 4Are ,ew

Change 3 (27 Oct 69) to TM 9-1005-
249-12 gives you the scoop on the XM15
blank firing attachment (FSN 1005-921-
5481) used with the M16A1 rifle.


Instructions for checking the crank-
case oil level in your 2/2-ton or 5-ton
multifuel engine truck are in TB 750-
981-3 (Jul 69), page 43, Article 3-8. The
same info appeared in PS 205, page 54,
and will be reflected in changes to TM
9-2320-209-10 and TM 9-2320-211-10.



New RecodUs AR

For the scoop on setting up and get-
ting rid of supply and maintenance
records you need AR 340-2 (Sep 69).
It supersedes AR 345-215.

















As any sharp tanker can tell you .
ammo with primer installed is un-
packed, carried to and loaded into the
tank primer end up. That way, if the
round's dropped, its tail's not likely to
smack any sharp object that could set it
off. See FM 17-12 (Nov 64), para 253.
And, scratch the fuze-end first info in
PS 202, page 17.

see'S
Come to R 735-35
All property book page makers
should add the new 2-letter equipment
category codes in front of each SB 700-
20 LIN entry as of right now. This is the
word put out in DA message DCSLOG-
SPPD 102304Z Dec 69 telling you to add
this info to para 3-2c(1)(g) in AR 735-35.
DA Cir 750-29 (9 May 69) lists the ECC's
you need.


Don't look for a big load of tools in
new engineer-type equipment manuals
from now on. Basic issue items lists (BIIL)
are being abbreviated, because 'most
any repair means a trip to the shop any-
way. Besides, it saves weight and money
- including the operator's cash that
might go for statements of charges on
lost tools.


New ikte Switch
Huey (UH-1D/H) maintenance types
- the floor mike switch needed by door
gunners to communicate, when they
have their hands full, is here. Step on it?
Schedule MWO 55-1520-210-30/27
(16 Dec 69) for your sharpshooters.
MWO 55-1520-211-30/31 (22 Dec 69)
puts the mike switch in your UH-1B,
C models.

det eeaoe Vo It
There's no need for you mechs to go
thru the mumbo jumbo of an acid test on
metal particles from a chopper gear box.
You might even get your fingers
burned!
To find out if the part is OK make the
"eye" and "feel" test of particles found
on the chip detector plug, as called out
in the bird organizational maintenance
pub.
Oil analysis by the ASOAP labs listed
in Ch 4 (Mar 69) to TB 55-6650-300-15,
will give you a scientific reading on the
gear box.

Rifle racket Mtoutt
Now you can get the instructions, for
mounting the rifle bracket mounting kit,
FSN 2590-045-9611, for M14 or M16
rifle on construction equipment. TB 750-
246 (Aug 69) has the dope.
