i I REALLY THINK YOU I
GUYS ARE OVER-LOAPING
ANP UNTIL YOU REGROUP
SI'M CUTTING YOU OFF
A fuse the best friend your communication or electronic equipment has!
That's right, 'cause a fuse sacrifices itself when a wayward electrical current
attacks your equipment or electrical circuit. Thus a lot of expensive cables, tubes,
circuits, wiring, transformers, resistors, and the like, are saved from massive
damage by a little ol' fuse.
Coming in all shapes and sizes, it serves silently, guarding against electrical
current surges or overloads, grounding and short circuits.
And, you take the fuse for granted until it's time to do its duty, then it fades
out or kicks up a fuss in the form of a pow, a pssft or an alarming noise.
FUST SHORT CIRCUIT
WE FEEL IN THAR--
DOWN THE WORKS.,
GOT FUSE BLUES? *
Now you say you know what a fuse is to do, but they come in so many
sizes with a lot of gobbledegook lettering your problem's knowing which one
to use as a replacement?
Well, back off and let the fairy tale be unfolded on the confusion of fuses.
First off, there are 4 basic types or families of fuses:
The fuse not only
guards the circuits but it
also acts as a fault indica-
When the fuse blows or
goes, you should replace
'er with an identical one.
If she goes again, it means
you have trouble along the
line or within the drcuit
and this takes some look-
ing into. Maybe higher
level maintenance on the
equipment is needed.
" In the makeup of fuses,
the most important rating
is current flow or amper-
age since that's the reason
for a fuse in the first place.
So, when your equip-
ment calls for a specific
amp fuse, that's the one to
Never use a fuse with
an amperage rate higher
than the equipment calls
The cartridge is probably the most discussed and
cussed because of its multiple uses and sizes and varia-
tions in shape.
Basically, the cartridge is tubular in shape, made of
glass, plastic, wood, ceramic or the like, with an inclosed
fuse link core attached to 2 ferrule or cap ends.
It measures 1 to 10 inches long and has an ampere
rating of .001 to 60 amps.

The most common is the plain old house fuse, or plug-
type, which is used in 110-volt AC branch circuit. The
threaded plug, often called the Edison-base type, has a
mica or glass window to let you see the condition of the
The metal thread-type has a buddy, the ceramic-
threaded Fustat fuse that requires an adapter to round
South its fuse duties.
You may find the plug-type in circuits of from 0.3 to 30
amps and 125-volt ratings.
TTHE KNIFE- BLADE FUSE
p Last, but not least is the knife-blade fuse which likes
to play the role of tough guy 'cause it can take currents
ranging from 60 to 600 amperes. That's why it's usually
found in main fuse boxes and electrical power plants
FUSE TYPE TAUI
To help cut confusion on fuses, a type designation is being stamped on 'em as
required by Military Spec MIL-F-15160D. Heavy emphasis is on the cartridge
fuse, because of its multiple uses, sizes, etc.
CO course, the stamping looks like a lotta Greek, like, frinstance:

OLD C TYPE FUSES
To tie in the C-type with the new D-type of military standard for fuses,
MIL-F-15160 specification, just follow this conversion.
Like, for the C-type it'll be identified as FO1AR001A.
The F01 is the same as for the D-type fuse; the first A is 32 volts; R001 is 0.001
amps with the R as a decimal point, and the last A is blowing time characteristic,
which is also the same as the D-type.
Here're a couple tables that'll show the C-type setup.
A =32 volts H= 500 RO01 to R009 = 0.001 to 0.009
B=52 J= 1,000 R010 to R099 =.010 to.099

it during repairs, but make sure it gets

Every fling-wing knucklebuster has battled his temper boo-coo times while lin-

A few PM tips will turn your sizzle to simmer and make you the champion
clamp assembly man in your outfit. The pilot'll appreciate it, too!
Some clamps are steel, some aluminum, so start with metal-matching clamp
assemblies. Now take a close look at the assembly. If one of the halves is busted,
banged up, scarred, or cracked, get a complete clamp. Never use un-matched
." _. -- -------- -_ '
You might get a substitute nut, P/N H22-4, from supply. If so, just don't use
it on the same clamp with the 52Z1835-48 nut. No mocky-nicky nut/bolt deal
allowed on any clamp, anytime, Podner.
With a copy of the -20 in your mitts, start working at the 90 tail rotor gear
box and work toward the transmission. Starting on the tail rotor end means that
the main rotor blades don't turn every time you put torque on the clamps ... or
when you turn the shaft 90 to add another clamp assembly.

The ARC-54 whip antenna on your Huey (UH-IC, D, H) has a habit of
flexing into the tail rotor blades. So, make sure your bird has a wedge-type
spacer between the antenna base and fin. The spacer tilts the antenna away from
the blades no baloney!! MWO 55-1500-200-20/6 (2 May 68) has the scoop.
For the combining transmission oil diup-out we add about 7 feet of 1'-in ID neoprene
hose, FSN 4720-278-1096, to the drain, and run it along the bulkhead-station 534-fo
the left side former BL 251 then aft to station 594 Here we connerr the hose to the
APUI AGB motor pump drain tee line P/ N 114H3104 Safety wire holds it in place -
and the oil stays off the ramp.
Oil backup from our Chinook's engine
overboard drains and the combining trans-
mission oil drain used to keep the fuselages
in a mess. It created a hazard to crew mem-
bers and troops, too, because oil ran and
dripped down onto the ramp area. A mis-
step and somebody became a fall guy!
We've come up with a couple of ideas
that keep the aft section clean and dry. We
tape 6 to 8-in long scrap flex hose to each
engine drain outlet with green tape. F'ris-
tance, a used 20-in oil sample tube, FSN
4710-933-4416, cut into 3 pieces, works
fine on the V'-in drains. Takes 10 tubes-
6 for right hand engine, 4 for left. Tying
each set of tubes together in a couple of
places with .032-in double twist safety wire
makes 'em stronger and easier to handle.
Our crews don't get on oil bath when pulling engine run-ups, and the Chinook's rear
end and ramp stays clean and dry for our mechanics pulling maintenance and for troops
getting on and off.

Your air mobile shelter, FSN 4920-900-8378 sure gets moved about in the field.
Result: Busted fluorescent tubes that jar loose.
Here's a fix for keeping your tubes in place to save Uncle some moola and head
off the broken glass hazard. Broken fluorescent tubes are real dangerous.
Just add two springs, P/N V-46, FSN 5340-682-1642, under tension, below the
two tubes and you've got it made.

(Ed Note-Outstanding! Newer shelters will have this problem solved but this
fix can be used on all shelters now in the field.)
That's right, bird wranglers. Never use the T-41B parking brake to hobble or
stop a moving Mescalero. Hobbling the bird with the parking brake breaks or
pulls the cable loose where it swages into the cable assembly. No adjustments are
allowed on the system so a busted or stretched cable means a Mescalero red X'd
for cable replacement.

Dear Sergeant N. B. O.,
All of your trucks with a gross weight (vehicle plus load) of 3 tons or more
carry the load class on the front. But you use the changeable number kit only if
that load class is likely to be changed, like for switching from a single vehicle to
a prime mover in a "combination vehicle."
If your truck (gross weight 3 tons or more) normally pulls a trailer with a
rated payload of more than 1-1/2 tons (or lighter, if trailer has load class listed),
you paint the iruck's basic load classification figure on the right door of the truck.
This does not apply to a truck unless it has a trailer normally assigned to it,
even though the truck has a towing pintle. ,
G749-SERIES 21/2-TON TRUCKS...
BLOCK & CHAIN WITH WINCH
The BIlL in Ch 7 (Feb 65) to TM 9-
8024 sounds like all G749-series 2h-
ton trucks get Block, Snatch, FSN 4730-
833-7019, and Chain, Tow, FSN 4010-
047-3902. But I suspect these 2 items
are meant only for the trucks with
front-mounted winches. Am I right?
ISG J. W. M.
Dear Sergeant J. W. M.,
You suspect right-only trucks with front-mounted winches get the snatch
block and tow chain.
But, that FSN for the snatch block should be FSN 3940-625-6289. Even with
that FSN you may get Block, Snatch, FSN 3940-609-8026. This's the block for
G742-series 2-1/2-ton trucks with front winches, but it's OK for your G749-
Block, Snatch, FSN 3940-625-6289, isn't in TM 9-8024 yet, but you'll find

TENDING! O/ F THINGS
AND DOING IN
ORDER TO KEEP
The turbocharger is lubed by the
engine's oil. When the engine stops,
the oil flow halts. But and here's the
clinker the turbo is free-spinning. So
when you shut down the engine, the
turbocharger is still going around -at
35,000 to 50,000 RPM but not much
oil is being fed to it. That's rough on
the turbocharger bearings. And the tur-
bine blades also get real hot. All that
heat can work its way down the shaft
to the seals and shorten their life. A
sudden shutdown can also cool the
blades so fast that they'll warp.
What you want to do is let the engine
run idle a few minutes before you shut
it down. This brings the speed of the
turbine down enough so that when you
stop the engine the blades won't cool
off too fast and the bearings won't miss
the oil. JZQ 1 ,,hi
Starting right is just as important as
stopping right. So give the oil a chance
to reach the turbocharger and lube the
bearings by running the engine at idle
for 3 to 5 minutes before you roar
down the pike. /30 "
Overspeeding the turbo can also
mess up the bearings or maybe tear up
the turbo. You get overspeed by lug-
ging the engine with little or no let-up
- unless your turbo has a waste gate
to hold down the RPM's. A dirty air
cleaner can also cause overspeeding as
the turbo fights for air.
WEST COAST MIRRORS
Dear Half-Mast, / HAS THERE
We've got command authorization (un- BEEN A SWICH WE
der AR 385-55) to outfit our G744-series GET THE MIRRORS
5-ton trucks with those big West Coast- WITH THE BRACKETS
type mirrors like are standard equipment
for 10-ton trucks.
Several years ago I got some of these as shown in PS 145:
Mirror w/mounting bracket, right side, FSN 2540-575-8391
Mirror w/mounting bracket, left side, FSN 2540-575-8392
Now we're getting only the mounting brackets under those FSN's.
SSG J. A. H.
Dear Sergeant J. A. H.,
There were mirrors w/mounting brackets packaged under those FSN's at one
time (and they're still cropping up from older stocks), but they should come sep-
arately, like so:
16 x 6-in, FSN 2540-788-5637
Bracket, right side, Brcket, left side,
FSN 2540-575-8391 FN 2540-575-8392
This mirror goes with either bracket so you'll need 2 of 'em for both
sides of the truck.
The mirror and brackets are listed in Fed Cat C2540-IL-A (Jan 68).
There is a special mirror-with-bracket being designed for 5-ton trucks. It'll
be similar to that setup for 10-ton trucks. 9
LUBE CHART NEEDLE
Those needle bearing U joints in your 1/4-ton M151 can rust out faster than
you can say, "not lubed", Which is a pretty good reason why you want to give
the lubrication chart the once-over when you make with the grease gun. You
wouldn't want to miss any of those ump-teen fittings and without the LO in hand
they're harder to find than a needle in a haystack.
G742-SERIES 21/2-TON TRUCK...
THE CLUTCH KILLER
Look out for the clutch-rod butcher!
He's the guy who hacksaws a hunk
off the clutch-control rod on a G742-
series 2-1/2-ton truck. He's a well-
meaning guy he thinks he's saving (
Uncle a buck by getting just a little
more mileage out of the clutch facing.
But he's wrong. Know why? You
guessed it when that last bit of facing
gives out, the metal clutch plate comes l
smack dab against the metal flywheel.
Talk about hot! It's curtains for a good
part of the clutch assembly and prob-
ably the flywheel, too.
It's a pretty expensive way to save a buck.
So if you see a guy holding' a hacksaw and eyeballin' the clutch-control rod,
here's what you tell him:
When the rod's been adjusted so far that the end touches the clutch throw-
out shaft lever, it's time to replace the clutch disk assembly.
Trying to get more adjustment by cutting some off the rod will only make
big trouble out of little trouble.

which can be another problem.
/ Hold a piece of cloth or paper in front of the air-intake screen the %aa it says
in your vehicle -10 TM. With the engine running the blower should suck the
material against the screen. If not, stop your engine and call your mechanic.
Make this test every time you start your engine.
This way you'll find out in time if the generator blower is not working and
you can save your generator from overheating and burning out.
THE BLOWER S
WORKING CONNECTOR DUCT
It might be that the blower motor is working even when there's no suction on
the air-intake screen. This could happen if the mechanic forgot to reconnect the
flexible connector of the generator duct after a power pack was replaced.
With the duct not connected the blower will draw in dirt and dust. Then it'll
overheat and fail, and the generator will likely burn up too.
So, always test for suction on the generator air-intake screen and call for a
mechanic if it's not there. This could save your generator.
The engine should not be operated with any defective or improperly
mounted air intake parts.
The M60 tanks serial number 5 through 1249, should have the new genera-
tor air intake screen as outlined in MWO 9-2350-215-20/17.

SDear Lieutenant F. C. A.,
The graphite grease (GG) goes on the bore
Sevacuator threads of your M48-series tank or
. other weapon with a bore evacuator after
firing, quarterly, or at inspection time.
A big thing, though, is that you now use GG
when the temperature is above zero degrees and
GAA when it's below zero. The very latest LO's
tell about this.
PLASTIC STOCK HARDWARE
If your support guys say they're having trouble getting the hardware to go
along with the plastic stock for your M14 rifle, tell 'em to try these: Screw, FSN

/ Dear Half-Mast,
'... // I've been with a Hawk unit for a long
C) time and I've never been able to get an
answer to what seems like a simple ques-
Sc tion. That is, how many track pads are
there on each side of the loader-
SFC J. B. NO MORE
Dear Sergeant J. B., AFTER THIS
You can look through all the TM's you want to, but you
won't track down the answer to that one-at least notsin so .
many numbers. Here it is, tho: there're 43 on the right track
and 44 on the left track. Page195 of TM 9-1450-500-25P
(Aug 66) gives you a clue by saying there are 87 connecting
track links on the loader (43 + 44).
Vehicles with a torsion bar suspension system usually have
more track pads on one side than on the other.
When you're no longer able to adjust tension on the tracks, you might get
back some of the adjustment by reversing the sprockets. The driving face of
the sprockets can wear enough to put lots of slack in the tracks.
Same thing with end connectors. New ones might be the answer.
If reversing the sprockets and getting new end connectors won't do it, then
you want to get rid of all bum track blocks. Change 7 (Dec 67) to TM 9-2630-
200-14 tells you about track block wear limits. And don't be surprised if you
wind up needing enough blocks to give you a complete track-so you adjust
for the tension you need. H1L-ft
ON THE LEVEL

the transmission oil level for your Hawk XM501E2 or E3 loader-transporter,

way to get out. Hold on to the plug and put it back in if
you're going to ford.
Remember take out the bottom plug, not any of
the other three.

S Are the inner tubes
Sin the leveling support jacks HALF MAST
and the retractable support BU5 SY
assembly supposed I'M
to be pained ,- TELEPHONING
SFC F H li a
Dear Sergeant F. H..
Not on your life.
The inner tubes in the leveling support jacks are cadmium-plated. And while
this plating is gray and looks a mite like the start of corrosion, you want to
keep your distance with sandpaper or emery cloth.
The inner tube for the retractable support assembly is coated with phosphate,
which is also gray. It doesn't get sanded off, either.
If you have paint on any of the inner tubes, get it taken off with paint
Then put a light coat of oil on the tubes. Use Lubricating Oil, General Pur-
pose, Corrosion and Salt and Spray Resistant. It's listed on page 4.30 of Fed Cat
C9100-IL (Sep 67). You'll find that FSN 9150-231-2361 is worth a quart
and FSN 9150-231-2356 gets you 5 gallons.
If you want to put on a fresh coat of oil, first remove the old stuff with a solv-
ent that has a petroleum base. Dry cleaning solvent (SD) works fine.
PAINT O' DUCT'S BACK
Not on your life there's not supposed to be NO PAINT HERE, EITHER
any paint on the extension duct that's part of the'
missile-cooling duct on your Hawk launcher.
Instead of paint, which makes like insulation, .
you want the duct to be clean so you'll have a path
for electrical grounding between it and the outer
Things will be in good shape if nothing covers
the chromating on the extension duct. In other
words just keep it clean.
Hold one... here's the latest scoop you want
to use along with LO 9-4935-500-12 (Nov 67)
on your Hawk AN/MSM-43 organizational
maintenance shop equipment.
Note 2 to the LO talks about replacing the
filters every so often. What you should do in-
stead is change filter elements. That means low-
pressure filter element, FSN 4935-959-1026,
gets replaced after 36 missiles, or after 3 months.
Missile pressure hose filter element, FSN 4935-
066-1643, gets changed after you've tested 72 IANGE
missiles, or after 6 months. I TE
No sweat with the high-pressure filter ele- ELE
ment, FSN 4935-761-8892, seeing's how note 2
tells you to replace it not the filter.
TM 9-4935-500-15P/1 (Oct 67) lists the ele- La
ments on page 17. One thing, though, the high-
and low-pressure elements are called filters in
the -15P/1 and the missile pressure hose filter
element is called element.
Maybe it's happened to you when you put the 14KV
power supply in the tactical control console for your
Hawk battery control central. That is, the mounting
terminal for the C5 capacitor gets clobbered by the head
of one of the TCC floor mounting bolts.
It's a good way to come acropper of electrical troubles
. .. and a busted mounting terminal.
So take it easy when you put in the power supply.
Also take the washer out from under the head of
the bolt and cover the head with some electrical in-
sulating tape. This moves the bolt head a little more out
of the way and cuts down on the chances of arcing.

You use the TM 9-2300-223-20P, the
