Your TOE tells you what kind and how much equipment your outfit can
have. Your property book officer keeps an up-to-date tally on unit equipment
.. it's called the equipment density list. and normally sour section has a cop\.
It's your job to provide the repair parts needed to maintain that equipment.

Like was said, to find the parts for
your PLL you check your manuals, TM-
20P's (and any other manual listing
organizational repair parts, along with
-7, -7-8 supply manuals), and TM 9-
2300-223-20P (Oct 64), "Consolidated
Authorized Organizational Stockage
List of Repair Parts for Tank-Auto-
motive Materiel," (CAOSL for short.)/
1. Rerenw the allowance note in the intloducion section of your parts manuals--and check
lor ony rre-nl hingess (ii a manual doesn't quote allowances, look for a note in that
section telling you where to go for your authorized allowances.)
2. On repair ports common lo two or more different typei of equipment, you base your
initial allowance on the overall total of equipment you have that will use the port. Also, in
figuring up allowances for common parts you make your selection from the parts manual
covering the type of equipment having the greatest density.
3. In the case of tank-auto equipment you use the CAOS1 instead of the equipment's individ-
ual parts manual if most (the greatest number) of the different kinds of equipment you
have are authorized parts in the CAOSL.
(THE TM-TYPE PARTS MANUALS~
In some TM-type parts manuals for specific equipment you find the initial
15-day allowances quoted per 100 items. To find your allowance, you multiply
the total number of equipment that will use the part, times the figure shown
in the allowance column, and then divide by 100. The answer is your 15-day
initial allowance for that part. For example, if:
Multiply y" y5_5
Multiply 30 by 5.9
I. x 30
S E N ---- 177.
Divide by 100 .
1.77 y u
100 [ 177 ge
If your answer sits anywhere between 0.5 and 2.4,
you're authorized to stock 2.
And, if you end up with less than 0.5, forget it...
you can't stock it. You'll get the part as you need it
for immediate replacement.
When the formula gives you on answer consisting of a whole number plus a fractional value
of .5 or higher you round the onswel to the next higher whole number.
For instance, if you come up with a 2.5 you stock 3. \ \ 3f
When your answer gives you fractional values of less than .5, you round the total to the next
lower whole number.
That is, a 3.2 answer gives you an allowance of 3.

CONSOLOIDTEp Setting-up your allowances per TM

v i IZATIONAL STOC AGE

PARTS FOR TANI'- manual provides a practical PLL work-
SMATERIEL / sheet.
Along with each part listed it identifies the specific equipment (by SNL or
model identification), the part is authorized for. And, its four allowance columns
(headed a, b, c, d) list the number of parts authorized for density totals of equip-
ment supported, like this: 1-5, 6-20, 21-50, and 51-100.
You simply enter how many of each major item you have in the equipment
nomenclature (SNL or model) slot provided (for each part) in column 3; add up
your density total; select the allowance column which covers your equipment
density and total; circle the allowance you're authorized.

If you have OTHER major items that aren't LISTED in the CAOSL ... but
their maintenance requires parts which are listed in the CAOSL you can add
the major item's SNL or model info in the CAOSL nomenclature column
(column 3) and include the item in your density total when you figure up
The CAOSL lists repair parts alpha-
betically by Noun Nomenclature. It
also lists parts by FSN in numerical
sequence in an index in the back of the
book. The FSN index also gives you
the CAOSL page number where the
part is listed. And, if a part applies to
only one kind of equipment, you find
the SNL listed along with the stock

If you gain or lose equipment you
simply cross-out the old total in the
nomenclature column and its related
entry in the allowance column. Then
you note the new info in both columns
and send the change info to your supply
KINDS OF PARTS
Parts manuals identify repair parts you're authorized like this:
Combor Essei i' I t (C! )-Parts shown in parentheses () are CEI's, and once a (El goes
on your PLL, you stock it in the exact quantities authorized by the manual ... never less. Any-
one can increase stocks of CEI's, of course, if demand info (after six-months use of the part)
proves the manual's 15-day allowance isn't enough. But, the quantity authorized by the manual
(for whatever total of equipment you support) is the least amount a TOE outfit can carry of
that item (para 31e, AR 735-35 and DA TWX 42928 DCSLOG/C 2).
) TO RECAP
* Your initial PL isn't an iron-clad contract with
your repair part support outfit. Your unit's demand
for repair parts is your authority to increase your
allowances for any part that's been on your PL for
six review periods (180-days).
You can even reduce your allowances of other-
than-CEI's to zero, and you can also change your
range of stocked items by proving your need for
"as required" items (See Change 4, para 29c, AR
You can do all this with your PL. All it takes,
like was said at the beginning, is complete, accurate

DEMAND RECORDS BACK YOU UP
To keep tabs on what parts are fast movers and which parts are slow,
or just plain dead-wood, you use DA Form 2527, "Record of Demands"
It's a simple form, easy to keep and best of all it tells all at a glance...
you make a card out for each item on your approved PLL.
TEAMED UP WITH
A TITLE INSERT,
SPA rORM 1543,
ANPD EPT INA
VISIBLE I NPE
You record all demand info on the card so it'll give you (and all others con-
cerned-like inspectors) complete, up-to-date info on repair parts usage.
For convenience, easy handling, etc., the card's teamed up with a title insert,
DA Form 1543, and kept in a visible index file which gives you a finger-tip
index of your PLL. On this record combination you record parts info as follows:

The "Cumulative Demands" column shows your running totals. You

draw a line under the last cumulative entry for the month. If you've
recorded three separate demands, or more, within the last six monthly
:review periods (180-days) you readjust your authorized allowance.
All you do is total-up the (last six) separate cumulative totals and
divide the amount by 12.

In : PLL allowances, when you come up with a figure anywhere
from 0.25 to 2.4 your allowance is 2. (DA TWX 42928 DCSLOG/C2).
REVISING PLL STOCKS
In the future, anytime your outfit needs the item you can get it from support
as an "as required" item. However, each time you have a call for the item, you
record the demand on its card (which you kept in your visible index file when
you turned-in the excess parts) and if ever the card shows up with three separate
demands within the six current review periods, you can figure up your new
authorized allowance for the part and it goes back on your PLL. Again you
give support written notice on the change.
When your outfit is no longer au-
thorized a specific type of equipment
and it's turned-in, any repair parts you
have (which are used only with that
equipment) you turn-in also. In this
case you can toss out the cards on the
parts and just cross the parts off your
PLL. And, of course, you write support
a note on the change, so they'll correct
ROD CARD INVENTORY
Your record of demand cards are due a periodic inventory-informal, and
as called for by the Old Man. Count slips and adjustment reports aren't needed
on these informal checks.
You can use colored sig-
nals behind the title insert
windows as a visual check
on the status of your parts.
For example, one color to
show due-in's, another to
show zero balance, an-
other to flag CEI's, etc.
FRINGE (*-PEGGED) ITEMS
You set-up a DA Form 2527 for each "as required" item you request. You
fill the cards out just like a ROD card for your PLL parts, but you don't make
a title insert for 'em, and you file the cards separately (in a file folder, box, cabi-
net, etc., just so's they're safe and handy), and you keep 'em in FSN sequence.
You review each card each time you make an entry, and anytime you've
accumulated three separate demands on a card, the repair part can go on your
PLL immediately ... with the Old Man's OK, of course ... and support's knowl-

Any time you get a hankering to let the bolt
on your M60 machine gun fly forward (with
the barrel out)-DON'T! You could be asking
for a pack of trouble.
Why, even with the barrel in there you could
Figure it this way. With the barrel in, you
have a forward moving bolt entering the barrel
socket like it ought to, right?
But, when you're dry firing, you won't have a live round
or dummy cartridge in there to soften the blow as steel meets
steel. As a result, wear on the bolt locking lugs and the barrel
socket locking recesses will be increased.
With the barrel out of the receiver, the situation's much
worse. Then if the bolt's released and goes forward under
force, the actuator cam roller'll hit the rear of the cartridge
S Tcxo much battering of the bolt stops like this will bang up the recesses or
stops This. in turn, will let the actuator cam roller strike the cartridge feed
tra% during firing.
Ho some t r. if you get in a bind with the barrel removed and the bolt in
the forward position, and you can't retract it by the operating handle, here's
how .ou can straighten it out without sweat or damage:
1. Hold the machine gun like 2. Press straight down like this. 3.Retract the bolt by using the

If this system won't work for you, get your sup-
port to lend a hand. Whatever you do, DON'T
try to force the bolt Forcing the bolt back /MOT i'
agin the receiver guideways can cut a piece off the .
So, in future, whenever you have to remove the barrel, do it this way: Retract the bolt till it's
seared. Then move the safety to the safe position and raise the barrel lock lever to the vertical
position. Then remove the barrel.
But don't stop there. Next, put the barrel lock lever in the horizontal position, retract the operat-
ing handle fully to the rear. Place the safety in the fire position. Pull the trigger and then E-A-S-E
the bolt forward.
Doing it this way will lessen your chances of dry firing and prevent damage
to your M60.
This'll damage or break the reinforcement bar. And the base
of the actuator cam roller will strike the bolt stop on top of

So these guys come knocking on your arms room door, i
carrying an M60 machine gun that's suffering with a chipped
bolt and a burred operating rod yoke. And they want to
know can they keep on using this weapon.

CROSS CH "iP S
Winter's gone and might as well be forgotten-but don't forget those tire
chains that gave you a fighting' chance with ice and snow. They'll be rarin' to
go at a moment's notice next winter if you put 'em in good shape before storing
Busted or worn-thin cross chains are no reason for chuckin' out the whole
chain assembly. Too many guys have been takin' the easy-and expensive-
way out, so supply's got cross chains in stock clear up to the ears.
SYou'll find FSN's for the right size cross chains
in TM 9-2300-223-20P (Od 64), pages 263-264. ,l
After you've got your chains repaired, give the
whole works a good slathenn' of used engine oil
and hang 'ern out of the way. Or you con leave
ernem sitting' in a can of used oil, like it says in
S TM 9-1870-1. Pages 111-117 tell all about in-
saollation and rore of tire chains.
And if you don't already have tire chains, now's the time to be thinking-
AND DOING-something about that, too, or you'll be sitting' out in the cold
in more ways than one come next winter. TM 9-2300-223-20P also gives the
FSN's for chain assemblies-and tells who gets 'em and how (see pages 260-
ROUNDIN' THE CORNERS
When you're slippin' the dipstick to
your M35A1 2V2-ton truck, be mighty
careful or you'll chew up the threaded
top of the dipstick tube. The sharp
corners where the double layer of the
stick ends can play hob with the threads
so the cap won't screw on.
Better yet, get rid of those sharp
corners by rounding 'em off with a file
or grinder. Do it careful-like, tho, so
you don't cut into the part of the dip-
stick that goes on down into the crank-

START BY BLEEDING
The secret's in the bleeding
when your M35A1 2/2-ton truck
runs out of fuel and-doesn't want
to start with a new load in the KiJ
tank. The fuel lines have to be bled
BEFORE starting is attempted. It's
a simple job with a crescent wrench,
but it's strictly for organizational
mechanics-not drivers. If you try
starting without the bleeding,
chances are you'll just run the bat-

If any of your tactical wheeled vehicles have the older type ignition switch

5930-776-0409) at every periodic maintenance ("S") service for cracks and
When the potting metal cracks, moisture seeps thru and shorts the unit-

ON PRESSURIZED FUEL SYSTEMS...
You'll have a mean ole' tiger lyin' in wait for you if you don't keep tabs on
the filler cap of your vehicle's pressurized fuel system.
That ornery cat's apt to come tearin' out of the filler pipe right into your
face. Or, if he can't wait for you to let 'im out, he may reach down into the
engine and raise hob.
This terror of the fuel tank is pressure-too much pressure, that is. He can
drench you with fuel (bad stuff in the wrong place) when you take the filler
cap off. He's a double threat when he shoves gas right through the engine into
the crankcase, diluting the oil and making a perfect set-up for an explosion.
To keep that temp'r'mental tabby dozin' peacefully in the tank:
CHECK THE CAP
There're three different filler caps:
DON'T CROWD HIM
Another way to keep from annoying
that cat-under-the-cap is to leave room
for some expansion and pressure build-
up when you're filling your tank.
A good reminder is a line painted
across two inches from the top of the
tank, with this warning-' CAUTION:
DO NOT FILL ABOVE THIS LINE."
Leave a couple inches for expansion.
This is for fuel tanks that are in full
view. If your gas tank can't be seen,
stencil near the fill pipe-"CAUTION:
DO NOT OVERFILL-ALLOW FOR
EXPANSION." TB 746-93-1 (26 Oct
64), Color and Marking of Military
Vehicles, Construction Equipment and
Materials Handling Equipment, has the
full scoop on this.These warnings are re-
quired no matter which of the three
gas caps you have.

SP5 J. C
Dear Specialist J. C. N.,
Maybe you're better than most guys in running that steam outfit, but the
truth is, there's an awful lot of damage done by men who don't know how to
operate the steam cleaner right. The guys in direct support do a lot of cleaning
with steam and know what to watch out for.
Since the various truck TM's don't say you can do steam cleaning, the best and
safest bet is to stick with the tools your outfit has. As you know, only support
units have steam cleaners authorized.
TM 9-8024 says to:
USE DRY CLEANING SOLVENT VLATLE
S O VOLATILE MINERAL MINERAL
SPIRITS TO CLEAN OR / C IAN SPIRITS
SWASH GREAS OR OIL / LVEN
PROM ALL PARTS OF 0E
If you're interested in your own safety (speaking of that green stuff in your
billfold), you're not going to have the TM to back you up on steam cleaning
when your CO hands you a statement of charges for damage to equipment-
and, believe me, it has happened.
What became of the tow chain
that used to be a part of the OEM for G742-
series 2' 2-ton trucks with winches?
The winch-equipped trucks have blocks.
But a block's not much use without the
chain. And the chain's not listed with
other OEM in Change 5 to TM 9-8022.

You'd better believe it! If you crew
members on an M60-series or M48A3
tank fluff off on that "after operation"
check of the air cleaner blower motors
you're asking for big troubles.
A dead blower motor causes clogged
up air filters, which means loss in power
and lets dust into your engine.
When dust gets into the cylinders, it
acts like sandpaper and grinds away at
the rings, pistons and walls shorter
Regardless of which blower motor
you have-earlier model (FSN 6105-
801-8716) or later ones (FSN 6105-
873-5379) the check gets made.
Find a "dead" motor? OK, let your
sergeant know so he can get a me-
chanic to look at it.
Your mechanic can make a check for
loose connections. If it's not in the con-
nections, then he'll hafta replace the
dead motor with a good one.
Your dry-type filters (made of dacron
felt) will do a good filtering job for
1500 miles under normal operation.
After this the mechanic should inspect
'em and clean 'em up like's called out
in the -20 TM's.
The crew checks 'em every 750 miles
S. you pull out the filters and check
them for damage and see to it the gas-
ket's in good shape. Your -10 TM's
have all the poop.
O'course, you check more often when
you operate in dusty areas.
They've got to be kept clean. Re-
cently, an outfit with M60's let a screen
in the engine area clog up.
Natch, with the intake screen clog-
ged, the engine had to get air some-
where else. Like a big bully, it picked
on the blower motor. The blower motor
which normally exhausts the air parti-
cles overboard was forced to reverse
and suck the air inward. You can guess
the rest. Soon the filters were filled up
and likewise the engine-with dust. A
S-o-o-o-o, the few seconds you take
to check out the motors or screens is
like putting money in the bank. It helps
to make sure your tank will go when
you get the word.
IS IN YOUR
f g REPLACING THE BLOWER MOTOR
S Like we said in PS 134, there's a new improved blower motor in supply
i- for the M60, M60A1, and M48A3 tanks. Ask for it as FSN 6105-873-5379.
Here's how you identify the new and old blower motors:
NOTE: RECESSED GROOVE

NOTE: NO RECESSED
AIR CLEANER BLOWER
MOTOR. "OLD TYPE"

FSN 6105-801 8716
Fir-l. when you order the motor,
that's just what you get the motor
alone without the cover or the fan
housing. So hang on to these non-
supply parts when you disassemble the
motor, because you're not going to get
new ones when supply gives you a new
Second, dust and dirt can get into
the motor housing unless the two pre-
formed packing are installed. Requi-
sition 'em as FSN 5330-585-7864 and
FSN 5330-805-8165 when you order
the motor for your M60 series tanks.
They're listed on page 55 of TM 9-
2350-215-20P (Nov 62). Install 'em
when you put in the motor and you
won't have to worry about gook in the
IThirl. if you have an M48A3 tank,
you need the same two preformed pack-
ings. So order 'em by the same FSN's
like above. That way you won't get the
F.'ourth, if you have the impulse to
save, put some money in the bank or
buy some bonds but don't try to save
the blower motor cover or the fan hous-
ing when you have to evacuate your
tank to support for repair. If you do,
they'll deadline your tank until you
turn in the missing parts.
REMEMBER FOUR LITTLE THINGS
Dear Half-Mas:, W
Our M21 2 2 2-fon cargo trucks w/winch had their winches yanked, leaving
the front bumper bare.
Is there a plate that'll cover this gap and how can we get it?
Dear Sergeant R. D. K.,
There sure is. What you need is
Shield, splash, front bumper, center.
The shield is a support item and it's
listed in Ord 8 SNL G749 (Apr 57). It's
identified with manufacturer's number
Although the SNL doesn't list the
FSN, your support can get it with FSN
You install the shield like it says in

USE YOUR OWN TIMES
Dear Sergeant D. D. C.,
Your own past experience is the best judge on how long it takes to pull a
periodic inspection, Sarge. There is no published manhour guide right now
on average periodic inspection times for any aircraft. Besides, there are too
many differences that have to be taken into account from aircraft to aircraft
. and from inspection to inspection. So your only way to find a guide is to
make your own ... by keeping manhour records on the most recent periodic
for each ship. /

EXIT THE EXCESS
There's no such thing as an irresistible force meeting an immovable object
-something has to give!
Take the lag dampers on the rotor hub of your Shawnee (CH-21).
Suppose you fill the old-style dampers, FSN 1560-092-3382(P/N 22R2013-2)
or FSN 1650-313-5767 (P/N 5517188), to the brim. These are the types that
don't have a sight gage to fill by, or a relief valve to vent excess fluid.
During operation the fluid heats up and expands. Then that irresistible force
(hydraulic pressure) partially separates the damper body from. the reservoir
cover 'tain't a healthy situation.
That's why you want to follow the poop in TM 55-1520-205-20, Chapter
II, Section I, Paragraph 1-97 when you fill those oldies.
The action to focus on is just after the hydraulic fluid overflows the filler

IT TAKES 1"
TO KEEP ONE
One good way to insure a peep from your Pipsy is to be extra careful with
the VOLTAGE ADJ switch. That's "1" to remember.
Although there's a big, fat decal on the control panel of the AN/PPS-4
radar set warning not to connect the battery unless the VOLTAGE ADJ
switch is in Pos. 1, some Joes do it. Naturally, pffftt!! goes the set and you
cart it off to the shop.
Maybe they're bleary from the one they tied on the night before, or maybe
dream dust from last weekend's babe is still in their eyes. But, maybe again
they're gonna need that set real bad .and they won't have it because of
a couple' blown power converter transistors.
Maybe it would been better if they'd forced their eyeballs open and con-
centrated on the job at hand.

A fully charged battery jolts your set when you hook it up with the VOLT-
AGE ADJ feeding more juice than the set can handle.
S One forgetful minute can send you packing: The "1" spot on the Pipsy's
panel can keep you cracking.

Not only that, but they act different
... even though they look as much alike
on the outside as identical twins.
You're with it. They're the antenna
cables (RF cable assemblies) used in the
AN/GRC-3 thru -8 series radio sets.
You've got two-the CG-530/U and
the CG-568/U. Because they fit each
other's couplings, some Joes have been
known to switch 'em around. This
doesn't work so hot, since the CG-5681U
is just not built to do the job of the
So why? Well, the single wire con-
struction of the CG-568 makes it little
more than an extension of the antenna
-a real simple gadget built to do a
simple job. The CG-530 features braid-
ed RG-62/U cable. It's more compli-
cated; built to put out on, and pull in,
the higher frequencies.
Which clues you that the CG-568 is
for low frequencies only, like those in
the RT-66 receiver-transmitter. And,
naturally, you use the CG-568 only on
So wot's with the CG-530?
Is easy. The CG-530 is always used
on the RT-70. And, since the RT-67
and RT-68 have the higher frequencies,
it's always used with those two receiver-
transmitters. Which means, too, that
you never use the CG-568 with those
Telling the cables apart is no sweat.r--,
Before you attach 'em to the RT, grab
a look at the nomenclature band which
is clamped on the cable. The "CG-
530/U" or "CG-568/U" is stamped in
If the nomenclature's missing, your

A fizzled fusing gun got you frothing at the mouth? Lay off the rabies shots.
Help is on the way.
SB 11-593 (14 Oct 64) is your authority to turn in that beat TL-650/U solder-
ing gun and ask for a new soldering gun by using FSN 3439-729-6770.

That ol' message is stenciled right
over your AM-65 switch. Unfortu-
nately for the amplifier, familiarity can
blind a guy to a message like that. Even
though it's under your nose, you don't
see it... and you forget it.
That kinda' forgetfulness leads to
all kinds of interesting damage to the
amplifier parts. That's why the re-
Do like the stencil says: "DON'T

It'll pay to remember.
'Nother power point on the ampli-
fier: Turn the juice off before you re-
place any tubes.
When you locate a bad tube, turn the
power off and then take it out. With
the juice on, you can burn out the tubes
that remain in the AM-65.
When it comes to switching on your
AM-65 amplifier, you can stay one
jump ahead by pausing one jump
In other words, when operating the
OFF-INT-RT-70 switch, slow down for
a couple-three seconds at INT before
jumping over to the RT-70 position.
When you go from OFF to RT-70 in
one quick switch, a sudden shot of
voltage is applied to the filaments of
the tubes in your RT-70. And this
can burn 'em out in short order.
