The Army has put together a real
good system for supplying repair parts
and other items you need for mainte-
nance.
Thousands of people, tremendous
warehouses, fast transportation, and
the most modern data processing ma-
chines are "at-the-ready" for the word
from the man in your unit who needs a
part to put your fighting equipment
back in operation.
But quite often the system never gets
the word. Your man, Scrounger Sam,
has a "system" that "beats the system."


He hops in a V4-ton and rides over
the 2nd of the 13th and gets the p.
he needs from his old buddy. He p
it on, and the equipment is back
operation. Wonderful, he thinks.
Nope. Neither Sam nor his budd
the 13th bothered to put in a sup
request. The supply system (all ti :
people, machines, etc.) does not find o ;
that this particular repair part is in (i
mand, so it goes merrily on its way a:
doesn't worry about that part. Th
happens all around the Army on hur
dreds, even thousands, of items.


SCROUNGER
Now, maybe the next time Sam or
his friend needs the item, it's nowhere.
You can guess the rest: The equipment
stands deadline while priority requisi-
tions go back all the way; parts may
have to be manufactured.
If you've got a "Scrounger Sam" in
your outfit, lasso him before he rides
out to scrounge up repair parts and
supplies. While you've got him lassoed,
make him fill out a supply request for
every item he needs.
Gently remind him to order, not
scrounge.

Now that they've replaced-or soon
will replace-the wooden stock on
your M79 40-MM grenade launcher
with the plastic (fiberglass reinforced)
stock FSN 1010-951-4531, here's
some dope to help you get the best out
of it.
First off, make sure the stock fits OK.
Could be it won't look right or might
need some adjusting.


But, if you can see about all of the safety
spring slot and the receiver's not snug up to 3
the recoil bearing surfaces on both sides, -
you'll have to get support to perform a minor
operation. Chances are you've got an early
model M79, the kind that has d receiver tang
with an extended lower edge. This edge Rfol
might keep the stock and receiver from lining BARI
up right. SURAC
Support can fix things up without hurting
the radius of the stock by removing just
enough plastic at the spot where the receiver 4
tong interferes with the stock. Then the stock
will line up tight against the recoil bearing
surfaces.

That fast drying enamel's the best
stuff to use for touch-up when your
plastic stock gets scratched. However,
if you can't get hold of enamel, rub a
little plain oil or grease on the scratches
while you're lubing your M79. The
idea, of course is camouflage. The
brown color on your stock may be
solid clear through or only skin-thin
-and the white underneath would
attract Charlie's attention.

Here's another one-tiring your M60 machine gun might set up enough

But they can get just as loose, and a lot faster, if you give your weapon the
kind of battering it gets when tossed around-like onto the bed of a truck.
So handle with care. And if a river or rwo happens to get loose enough for

the M73 in the M60 tank. The two
MWO's can't repeat, can't be
switched between the 2 different tanks.
The -30 MWO puts a long flash sup-
pressor (FSN 1005-869-8817) on the
machine gun so that you can fire


through the mantlet on the M60A1.
The -30/2 MWO gives the M73 a
shorter flash hider (FSN 1005-922-
9777) that won't work with the
M60A1 mantlet.
By the way...make sure your sup-
port unit doesn't leave behind any old
flash hiders after putting new ones on
the M73's in your M60 tanks. The old
hiders can be turned into new ones.






.OR ME BLACK


Dear Half-Mast, i
What can I use to give rust and corrosion
a run for their money when it comes to
exposed M14 rifle parts? As an armorer,
I'm going bats trying to keep the stuff off
things like the butt plate, screws, and the
gas-cylinder plug.


PFC R. M. I
Dear Private R. M.,
The stuff you want, no matter where you are, is Lacquer: Black
(jet) lusterless, type 1, color 37038, 16-oz aerosol can, Spec TT-L-
50D, type 1, nitro-cellulose base, FSN 8010-582-5382.
The lacquer's also used on the M16A1 and if your outfit
has any of these weapons, turn to page 9-24 of TM 9- 1005-249-14
(1 Aug 66) for a listing of it. It's also on page 16 of Fed Cat C8000-
IL-A (Jan 68).
The idea's to use crocus cloth on the rust and corrosion and
then follow with lacquer spray. The lacquer's also good for touch-
ing up parts and small spots that have been worn bright. (Your
support people will handle the bigger refinishing job.)
And remember to keep the lacquer off internal parts.



NEW TM FOR M14 RIFLE


Hold it. Don't let appearances fool you. You
might think just looking at it that the new TM
9-1005-223-20 (19 May 67) for the M14 and
M14A1 rifle is only for armorers. Not so. It's
chock-full of all kinds of dope on care, cleaning
and lubing for you riflemen, too-and you'd
better get with it. The new TM supersedes the
-12 with both of its changes.

TEMPORARY PROTECTION


. Dear Half-Mast,
1N'T
\,'THE I've seen M14 rifles with a plastic cover
over the flash suppressor. Looks great for
keeping stuff out of the muzzle-end of the
rifle. How do I get one?
SGT J. B.
Dear Sergeant J. B.,
You don't. It's used for shipping only
... has no FSN... and can't be requisi-
tioned.
If you did use one on your rifle, you'd
be inviting condensation. Next would
come rusting and pitting. Same goes
,'E with anything else you might use to
)ME cover the muzzle, especially if no air
1 o can get through. L
5 TO H l'
IFF
OUR
JTAL THREATENED
rE-
K! THREADS
When you put the gas cylinder plug in your
M14 rifle, be sure you don't get the plug cross-
threaded. That's rough on both the plug and
the gas cylinder threads.
When the plug's not fully seated because of
cross-threading or under-tightening, you get a
leak in the rifle's gas system. And this means a
slow-firing shooter ... or one that won't shoot
because there's not enough recoil to let the bolt
pick up a round.
Tighten the plug by turning it finger tight,
then finish up with a slight pull-on your com-
bination wrench.
It's not very often that you'll remove the plug,
but when you do--like to clean the piston and
gas cylinder-be sure to hit the threads with
bore cleaner, followed by a dry wipe.

INEVERMONKEYJROUND








Any joker who fools around with ammo-blank or otherwise-is no friend
of yours. Right?
Yessir, the guy who thinks it funny to empty a couple-three M82 blank
rounds into one ... or pours extra powder in a bore ... or puts sticks, stones,
chewing gum or the like in the mouth of a blank cartridge as a "surprise" for
you-this kind a pal you can do without!
But, how about yourself?
If you're careless with your weapon, magazines and cartridges-throw 'em
down in mud or sand and trample 'em before firing-the flaming joke's on you.
Sure 'nuff, either way, an explosion's being set up the next time your M 14
rifle or M60 machine gun gets fired.
When these foreign bodies-put there jokingly or carelessly-get power
by that powder, the impact's gonna hurt somebody.
So, befriend yourself 2 ways:

1. If you spot some guy fiddling around with
ommo, remind him gently or otherwise that

chart calls for LSA (lube oil, semi-fluid FSN 9150-

The new decal bracket assembly
(FSN 1270-979-7121 ... 10547354)

BIRDMAN'S FIRST AID KIT... NEVER SEAL

JI R WITH STEEL










Dear Windy,
We're having a problem with first aid kit seals. We ordered -in dia lead seals,
FSN 5340-391-4240, and expected to get 'em with 5A-in 27 AWG single crimped
copper wire. Instead the seals came with steel wire. Did we use the right FSN or did
supply send us bogus seals?


Dear Sergeant M. C. D.,
Somebody in supply is playing hocus-
pocus with your seals 'cause you used
the one and only authorized FSN. Send
your request back thru supply and add
this code-2B-in block 22, DA Form
2765. This will let supply know that
you'll accept no substitute!
Hold one, tho, before you toss away
those steel wired seals. They can still
be used.
First, the steel wire gets the trash can
treatment. Then use FSN 6145-236-
9503 and 92 cents to get a pound of
uncoated 24 AWG copper wire that you
use with the left-over seals. You'll have
a f-a-s-t breakaway seal that'll work as
advertised when you nick your knuckles
or skin a shinbone... or worse.
TB 55-1500-308-25 (4 Aug 67) tells
you how to rig the wire/lead seal
combo. .

SAFETY WIRING... A MINI-LENGTH LIMIT

Dear Windy,
I've heard or read somewhere that aviation types should
not use more than 6 inches of double-twist safety wire be-
Stween tension points unless otherwise directed.
TM 55-405-3 (Jul 66) says nothing like this. Could you
give me a reading?

Dear Sergeant P. R. E.,
Your pub peepers and memory markers are lock-wired
in Numbah One shape.
Military Standard No. 33540 (6 May 53 w/changes)
is the general guide for safety wiring. Para 6 says that
lock-wiring will not be used to secure bolts, nuts, screws,
etc., which are more than 6 inches apart. Exception:





10"

Here're a few more infobits on safety wiring:

1560-600-4597, with the head facing inboard?
With the bolt nut facing outboard it's easy to get the 85-110 in-lbs torque and
insert the cotter pin. You can also spot the cotter pin right-quick on an inspection.
SP6 A. W. S.
Dear Specialist A. W. S.,
The old production blueprint shows the bolt head inboard but .
it doesn't matter which way the bolt goes.
MO)(




So, for easier maintenance, put the bolt in with the head facing inboard.
By the way, after you torque the nut and install the cotter pin a slight appli-
cation of the wrench should turn the bolt. This means you've met the require-
ment for a free-turning bolt. )

I'The next time you eye the cockpit of your Mohawk (OV-1) focus on the con-
trol stick a second. The lower boot assembly, P/N 134C10151-3, should be
located so that the zipper faces forward at the 11 o'clock position. An aft-facing
zipper could snag between the stick and elevator stick stop and restrict stick
movement... ugh!!!

DO YOU THINK
A U- IA TYPE
WILL FIT ON IT I FOUND IT./
Dear Windy,
We've looked everywhere for the FSN or P/N for the wing tip navigation light
reflectors for our Beavers (U-6's). Can you help us?

Dear Specialist M. W. S., .-
You're looking for FSN 6210-789- SHAVE OFF
7781, P/N C3N453-2. This plexiglass INBOARD TIP
reflector shows up in Fed Cat C6200-IL Ar BOTTOM,
30 ANGLE
(1 Jul 67) and the ML lists the price at S HOULD D I.
32 cents.
This nav light pilot aid is for the Some units make their reflectors from
U-1A, but Beaver unit CO's can author- scrap plexiglass. If you do, be sure it's
ize 'em for U-6's. You might want to not too thick, say maybe V2 inch, and
trim off the reflector before you put it round off the bottom or you'll get an
on your Beavers, and you'll get a better inflight vibration. You'll find the right
reflection if you shave off the inboard thickness of plexiglass in kit, FSN 1560-
side at the bottom tip. 620-4227, P/N EAB10. /


MR. FIX-IT FOR APU'S
Your auxiliary power unit getting too much atten-
don, guesswise, because you don't have a TM to
follow?
Like maybe you have generator set, FSN 6115-
920-8416 or FSN 6115-475-0029, which have no
maintenance pubs?
All is not lost, Birdkeepers. TM 55-1730-206-15
(Sep 64) has the lowdown on upkeep for these two
as well as for generator set, FSN 6115-996-5156. All
have the same power plant 2 cycle, I cylinder,
MOGAS operated L252L engines.

If the engine in your Seminole (U-8) is not purring like a kitten and you
suspect the supercharger driveshaft seal is shot, here's a sure-fire check.
Take the supercharger fuel drain cover off and eye the area for an oil-seal
leak. If more than a teaspoonful (about 60 drops) of oil has been siphoned
into the blower after engine shutdown, the seal's had it.
The seal change poop in TM 55-1510-201-35 (19 May 66) Chap 5, Sect II,
para 5-39 is not a general support chore, tho. Check with your direct support
because TB 750-991-3, item 16 on page 18 says it's their baby.

NO AILERON BIND, PLEASE!
On your next Bird Dog (O-1) Periodic take a good look at the aileron hinges.
Could be that they're mounted on top of the wing, between the reinforcement
plate and bottom skin, or on the bottom of the reinforcement plate. If so, 'tain't
where they're supposed to be, nosir-e-e-e!
A hinge in the wrong place pulls the skin down over the filler strip and puts.
your aileron hinges in a bind for real!
Aileron hinges should be mounted in the trailing edge of the wing between
V the top wing skin and the bottom spar.

Dear Editor, -
There's a metal flange on the left side of the UH-IC
cockpit that sticks out to within inch of the instructor's
right tail rotor pedal. If his boot slips past the pedal
stop, it can get caught between the flange and the right
pedal, which will cause the bird to touchdown in a

RESTRAINT EQUIPMENT FORM
Dear Windy,
TM 55-405-3 (Jul 66) on maintenance of aircraft systems says restraint equipment
has a time limit of 60 months ... page 118.
My buddy says we should carry this equipment on the DA Form 2408-16 but I say
it should remain where it has always been, on the DA Form 2408-18.

ON "HU SHORT-SHAFT
SSHORT CUTS.
E.. SHORT CUTS CHIEF RIGHT!

STOPPUM! SOLVENT USE ONLY A
NO SOLVUM CLEANING CLEAN DRY CLOTH
PROBLEM! ON YOUR HUEY'5
5HORT- HAFT!









Using a cleaning solution, JP-4, AVGAS, or solvent as a short cut to a Huey-
bird short-shaft cleaning job is playing Russian roulette with a rotorbird. A
ruined short-shaft could give your able Army Aviator a Numbah One case of
puckeritis!
Here's why you use only clean dry cloth for this messy job.
First, some solvents leave a film on
L EAN WITH DRY, metal that keeps the lubricant from
NEAN I.01TH ONLY doing its job. Your short-shaft comes
up pitted, burned. Complete failure is
possible.
Second, there're a jillion cavities,
nooks and crannies on the short-shaft
where solvent plays hide-and-come-
seek. Getting it out during a PE is no
child's game. In fact it's almost im-
possible.
But when the shaft's spinning at 6600 RPM the solvents are forced out of
hiding. They mix with the coupling grease-thinning it down and breaking
up the molecules. Its protective lubricating value goes to pot f-a-s-t and you've
got a real hot item riding shotgun!
On your next PE make with plain old garden variety elbow grease, clean
cloth--maybe with an assist from small cotton swabs on sticks, tongue depres-
sors, or popsicle sticks-and patience. That's good PM and it'll take care of
freak squeaks, too!

FOR THOSE WHO DARE TO CARE... MA


&V-Alf^J MAINTENANCE


NtMa be 'ou call it a power cable .
intervehicular cable or just plain
electrical cable. Makes no difference
when it comes to care and maintenance
-what you do is practically the same
for all of them. F'rinstance .


Carry the cable so that it and its con-
nectors don't bounce along the ground.








When the cable's not connected, use a
dust cover on the connectors. And remember
to put a dust cover on the receptacle when
the cable's not hooked up.


Replace missing dusl covers as soon as
possible. As a temporary deal, use tape. Make
sure, though, that you keep the adhesive
from sticking to the pins and female contacts.


Take it slow when you connect the cable
to the receptacle so that you don't get the
threads crossed. Same goes for the dust cover.


Disconnect the cable by getting a good
grip on the connector. You don't want to
yank or twist the cable or shielding to loosen
the connector.

NOW, GET A
GOOD 0 RIPOF IT...

LET'S
r NOT RUSH
7 THIN65... WEW
DON'T WANT
\ TO BENID
THEM PINS5


S- When you remove
the cable, lift up on it
I\-/ to take the weight off
/ the connector. This helps
to keep the pins from
getting bent and takes
the slam off the last couple of
Ihieads holding the connector to
the receptade. It's also a good
idea to support the cable as you
connect it.
Cables with connectors that
are pushed on the receptacle, in-
stead of threaded, ought to be
supported to keep the weight of
the cable off the pins.


Whenever possible, keep the table in a
Space where it won't be run over by a vehide. L


--If your cables are on equipment that
moves, check the connectors after traveling.
They could be loose.

A break in the insulation for some
cables can be mended with electrical tape.
Other types of cables need the know-how of
your support unit. You're not sure about
yours? Ask your DSU.

THE FITTING
COMPOUND IN THIS
CONNECTOR 15
CRACKED.


It doesn't hurt any to take a connector
off its receptacle now and gain to see if
there's any condensation. Avoid electrical
insulating compound in a connector.


If you're working with nuclear items,
be sure to follow the instructions in the
tech manual for your specific system.


LONG AND SHORT OF IT


It can be done, but it's bad-
real bad.
Putting two BA-1363/U bat-
teries in your AN/PSM-6A or 6B
multimeter, that's what.
When you use two 1363/U's,
they shove the battery case down
so that the case pushes against the
function switch. And this shorts out
the contacts.
So use the right batteries-one
1363/U and one 1328/U.


- USE ONE BA 1363 U .

Crunch! Crunch!
No, not potato chips ... That's a connector on your CG-1773A/U
antenna cable assembly left dangling where big feet put it out of
whack.
Sure, you have to take your RT-524 or -246 receiver-transmitter
out of your vehicle once in a while, but take the CG-1773 loose, too,
and tuck it away in a safe place.














O'course, if the cable's trapped by camps, covers; or some other
doo-dingus for protection, and you can't take it off; there're a couple
ways to save the connector.
Like, remove a mounting plate nut on the MT-1029 mount.
Put the CG-1773 in a perforated clamp strap, FSN 5820-783-9035.
Secure the strap to the mounting Or, you can just tape the cable to
plate bolt and replace the nut. the mount to keep it up out of the way
until the RTs back in its mount.




















That's not a musical saw you're flex-
ing there, AN/TRC-90() radio ter-
minal set operator-type.
So, go easy with the 19D1-MX and
19D3-MX termination units when you
pull 'em out of the card cage of the
MX-106 carrier terminal.
Your best bet's to get a firm grip on
the pull ring and come straight out
with the unit.
Otherwise, one of those compact
cuties could drag against a unit next
to it and damage the contacts on the
K1 and K2 relays, or make the S3, S4
and S5 slide switches go kaput.


An extra moment of painstaking in
removing that termination unit can
save aggravatin' down time to fix it.
THEY'RE FRAGILE!
I RELAYS I I SWITCHES I


TURN FOR THE WORSE

It's supposed to move free and easy s
-that pedestal chain ring on your PP- t' NUT
1578()/PD radiac detector charger.
But some guys take a wrench to the
nut that's on top of the ring and tighten
away until the nut won't budge. Trou-
ble is ... this kind of pressure can bust RING
the connection between the charging SH
pedestal and generator. FREELY
No connection, no charge ... so
please to let that ring move around.

Dear Half-Mast, I
Who or what is right? .II* fll
The front panel on our T-195 (/GRC-19 radio set calls for slo-blo dynamotor fuses.
But the fuses listed in TM I -5820-335-20P (Jul 65) blow normal-like. They're F602
(FSN 5920-142-4824) and F603 (FSN 5920-565-0035).
When an inspector finds those normal fuses, he gets shook up and we get a gig.
SFC W. R.
Dear Sergeant W. R.,
I don't like to knock heads with an inspector, but he's wrong. There're times
when a publication might slip up with its scoop, but this is not one of them. So
keep using the fuses in that -20P. h //UA

It's not what you'd call comfortable-the way you stoop or do deep-knee
bends to keep from clobbering your skull in the shelter for your AN/GRC-46()
radio teletypewriter set.
And while you're trying to keep your head out of trouble, you want to remem-
ber to do the same with your feet or back side when you get near the J-2498/
GRC interconnecting box. Those connections going into the box can't take a lot
of weight or kicking around.

Fouled-up inventories are rough!

So you property types

Can avoid Q gripes-

Please dig gain/loss transfers-no fluffs!!


You always enter a transfer, loss or gain code
from Appendix I.

REMEMBER:
1. TRANSFERS are between property books/
cash accounts and need a table 16 code.
2. LOSSES or gains are to the Army's in-
ventory and take either table 17 or 18
code.
. GAINS at unit level are usually items
found or recovered that were previously
dropped from the Army inventory.

Sure, frame repair is a job for your direct support. But how're they goin' to
know your G742-series 2-ton truck has a bad case of "rivetitis" unless you
tell 'em?
So get under there and check out those frame rivets. Look for loose or cracked
rivets. Try to wiggle 'em with your fingers. Give 'em a light tap with a hammer.
Maybe some are even missing. If you spot an empty hole, look at the same place
on another vehicle-maybe there's supposed to be a rivet in there.
Sing out to your support if you find any rivets loose, cracked or missing.
They'll replace 'em with bolts, nuts 'n' washers. Here's what it would take to
replace all the frame rivets:

ROPE AND CABLE


A bum cable worth $100 can foul up a $50,000 crane, dela. a % hole Engineer
platoon, maybe road-block a couple of battalions of gun-r)pe troops .small
item, big trouble.
So have an eye at your crane hoist, wrecker, MHE, or such and see how that
cable is doing. Look at:


SHEAVES Groove binding, not allow.
ing cable to run easily; undersize wheel
pulling cable out of shape under load,
worn groove chafing cable; broken
groove sizes cutting cable; unlubed
sheave bearings locking pulley and
causing cable to burn and fray.


BEARINGS Unlubed, worn out, fro-
zen and burning up wire or wobbling
to cause cuts on block plates.


END CLIPS Not mounted right (U-bolt
on working side of cable or staggered
between clips, causing dead end to zig-
zag); bolls and nuts loose. Z/

wire burned or stretched out of shape

What sou can't see, the core, is
probably ailing if you find lubrica-
tion bad. That core is a cushion and
spacer and vibration killer. It's nor
an oil wick or "crankcase;" the oil
in it goes here to keep the core
healthy.


Plenrn of clean, fresh oil is the
word for the whole cable nol

contains corrosives that will chew
up the cable and rot our the core.

AND ALL THE FIXTURES
Noa see whar's doing with
your cable's near neighbors.


END CONNECTORS Wires broken
from vibration or strain; hairline cracks
in connector eyes; excess wear from
vibrating under load.

BEAT THE DRUM

The way your cable winds on the
drum- be it crane, retriever, or what- LIF
ever-has something to do with its LA
good health, too.
If your cable is wound so the strands
turn to the right as you look down it, RI
it's Right Lay; if they go left, it's Left L
Lay.






A Right Lay cable hooks onto the OVERWIND
right side of a drum that turns as if it
were a barrel you were rolling along,
and the cable comes in under the bot.- LEFT LAY RIGHT LAY
tom. On such a drum, the cable hooks UNDERWIND
on the left side if it's Left Lay, and that
kind of spooling-on is called Under-
wind. LET LAY RIGHT LAY
Overwind drums, which spool on the cable over the top and turn the opposite
direction, take Left Lay rope fastened to the right side, and Right Lay fastened
a; the left.
That's done so the cable won't tend to unwind itself as it goes on the drum,
nor wind so tight there's extra tension. It helps keep down kinks, too.
Like lots of good things, this deal has a catch. The catch is, you don't want
to put more cable on a drum than you'll need, because winding a second and
third layer on does cause crushing, grinding, and such. If you do need a long
line, there's no choice .. grin and bear it.


SWING IT
Those extra shoelaces you lift with.called slings,
often get brutal treatment rhat helps nobody, too.


STORAGE -Slings left in
damp corners, instead of hung
up on rarks; tangled and kinky
lines ol all sizes stacked to-
gether. '

USE Sling too short or too
small diameter for a lob,
lines left dangling from snatch A ,
blocks after use; slings un
lubed after use.
Use long enough slings so's you don'l ever have an angle
over 45 at the hook or lit eye That cuts down strain and
bust-ups
And if your sling rubs on sharp corners, use pads Ito pro-
tect the sling LEtra sling loops can help only load 'em
equally to share the weight and stva level


HERE'S
WHAT TO
LOOM
FOR.


APPEARANCE Rust, dry oil and dirt mixed in strands: loops lett to lorm kinks;
strands broken; clips on ends ol made-up slings on wrong; or more of the wires
in one strand broken, mud caked; crushed.

LOOK AT THE HOOK
Naturally the business end of your hoist or retriever counts, so have a gander
at the hook block or hook and eye, whichever-
HOOK-Mouth spread-
SWIVEL Insecure ing from overloads or
mating to cable end; jerky use; cracks in
cracks in swivel base base of eye; excess
or socket. wear at friction points;
HOSS-iRADIN' TIME binding and abrasion.
HOSS-TRADIN' TIME
But there comes a day when you do have to change out cable. Then be sure
you unreel it right. The idea is, you don't want loops and kinks.
Jack up big supply spools-drums with a ton or so of cable-and roll the
line off the bottom, unless you've a helper to act like a brake on the reel. In
that case, your helper can keep too much from spooling off by holding tension
on the line, and you can reel it off either bottom or top.
For small sections, tied down free ends and moving the coil like the wheel
is good. If you do catch a loop forming, hand-straighten.
And if you can get fingers on a copy of TM 5-725, Rigging, sleep with it
under your pillow. When you're not sleeping, read it.

The oil pressure gage on your 6,000-
lb Anthony or Chrysler model rough
terrain forklift may be lying to you.
The gage may read "in the red" when
the engine's idling, and yet the oil pres-
sure's not too low.
The engine oil pressure increases as
the RPM increases. As a rule of thumb,
you should have 1V2 pounds of pres-
sure for each 100 RPM.
With the engine and the oil at operat-
ing temperature and at idle speed (700
'RPM), the gage should read between
12 to 18 pounds.


So keep this in mind when you do
your daily PM services, because TM
10-3930-242-12 (Mar 66), says normal
engine oil pressure for your forklift is
40 to 60 lbs. But that's only with the
engine running at the governed speed
of 2800 RPM.

Dear Editor,
Here's a tent pin driving aid we use when we
drive tent pins In hard ground. We've found that
we don't have to replace broken pins as often when
we usethis aid. You can make it by welding a scrap-
iron cap on a 5-in piece of 2-in ID galvanized pipe.
Now all you have to do is place it over the pin
and start pounding.

(Ed Note-If you use a Y8-in thick piece of carbon steel plate, Mil-S-22698,
Class A, Type I, hot rolled, FSN 9515-153-3223, on that galvanized pipe there
is less danger of steel chips flying from the cap. Cut the plate so 5V inch of it
will go inside the pipe and inch will be sticking out the top. Then weld it
all the way round so it will stay put.)

WELDING


AIR-LINE HOOK-UP


One end of the tube, bent to hook
down, goes through the hole in the
holder's jaw so the air blast hits where
the electrode meets the work. The tube
extends about Vs-in through the hole.
The tube should be soldered in place if
it's not a snug fit.
The other end of the tube is soldered
to the front of the drain cock, which
serves as a shut-off valve.
The coupling is soldered to the back
of the drain cock to take the line from
the air supply.
The air-line attachment is taped or
clamped to the handle of the electrode
holder. The tool can be used with an
air compressor or a vehicle's air system.
It can take 40-100 PSI.
The tool must be used from left to
right and the welder must always wear
gloves.

Dear Half-Mast,
What symbol do we use for the next-
lubrication-due entry in block 3a on DA
2408-1 daily? It's all alphabet soup to me.
PFC L. 1. F.


Dear Private L. I. F.,
Easy, now! Block 3a on DA 2408-1
daily is used tohelp you coordinate the
next-lube-due with the next periodic
PM service due-whenever that's pos-
sible within the authorized 10 percent
variation.
So... if a lubrication (based on hours
or miles) falls due before the next
periodic PM service (by more'n 10 per-
cent) use L in block 3a. But if the lube
can be coordinated with the periodic
PM called for in the equipment TM,
use the letter that stands for that service.
For equipment that has only S (semi-
annual) services, use L for a lube that
falls due before the service-S when
the lube and the service are scheduled
together. For equipment that has only
Q (quarterly) services, use L for a lube
that falls due before the Q and Q for
a lube coordinated with the Q. You'd
also use L or M (and sometimes L or
W) in a similar way if the equipment

It makes a difference which .50 caliber
machine gun you have mounted on your
tank. If you have one of the M2 HBTT
(like on an M48A3 tank) you load it with
the ammo belt's double loop leading. If
it is an M85 (like on the M60 tanks) you
load with the open side of the link down
and the single loop leading. This is the
latest dope regardless of what you may
have seen in PS or any other place.

Saety MWO
What happens when somebody makes
a mistake and connects the fire extin-
guisher lines with the fuel lines on the
M88 tank recovery vehicle?
Somebody could get killed is what
happens.
That's why MWO 9-2320-222-20/2
(Oct 67) was written.
If your tracked vehicle repairman
hasn't already put this MWO on your
M88 see that he does it-but pronto.
The MWO arranges the fire extin-
guisher and fuel line quick disconnects
so you won't make a mistake in hooking
them up.

Diesel fuel systems get extra cold pro-
tection with alcohol. That's the word
from USATACOM in TWX 1-23033 (23
Jan 68). Para 41, Ch 1 (Feb 63) to TM
9-207 is changed to delete the caution
against alcohol. You use 1/2 pint of al-
cohol per 10 gallons of diesel fuel below
32f. It's Alcohol, denatured, Grade III,
FSN 6810-543-7415 (1 gal), FSN 6810-
201-0907 (5 gal), FSN 6810-201-0904
(54 gal). Remember to add the fuel on
top of the alcohol.
