BE YOUR OWN INSPECTOR...
How sweet it is!
That's the AN/VRC-12 series radio
set... when you take care of it.
Whether it's in a wheeled vehicle or(
part of a package in a track, a good
operator-type will keep things moving
his way by watching for clues that tell
him preventive maintenance is needed.
0' course, a real boost to a piece of
radio gear is to turn it off when it's not
in use, especially before starting the en-
gine in a vehicle it's a partner with.
This'll guard against sudden power
surges that can send a radio set into
old age or the junk heap real fast.


iYoUR RIP RARIN'

To give a hand in helping that radio
set do its best for you, here are a couple
or three pointers that'll tip you off to the
need of better maintenance.
The bold type items are real serious
and should be taken care of pronto.

AS-1998 ANTENNA--
A loose, limp antenna can get lost and
put a crimp in your line of communica-
tions.
That's right especially, when it
comes to that AS-1998 on the AN/
PRR-9 radio receiver set.
Putting the set of blades on the an-
tenna base into the housing backwards
can keep the retaining screw
from locking the antenna in
position.
Or, in the case of the
earlier AS-1998, that second
set of blades causes the same
problem.


( NO SWEAT
WHEN THERE ARE
TWO SETS OF BLADES
...JUST FILE OFF
ONE SET OF BLADES

Make sure the filings are whisked off
before inserting the AS-1998 into the
housing, 'cause they could short out
your receiver set.
0' course, you have to marry up the
single blades with the grooves in the
housing's brass insert to get good con-
tact and lock the antenna in position.

Back off with the dikes for that AC input cable's power plug pins on the PP-

Before you wind up cutting one side of each pin, make sure you have a con-
nector adapter (FSN 5935-199-1787) on hand. It's listed on Page 136 in Fed Cat

A couple of cable assemblies in your AN/MPQ-4A radar set can whomp up a
heap o' grief for you especially when they get tangled up with interlock
switches and generally goof up the detail.
They're part of the C-2014/MPQ-4A power control power supply and the
CP-319/MPQ-4A radar data computer.
The power supply cable can get involved with the S-1001 male-female inter-
lock switch, and the data computer cable gets cozy with the S-1005 switch, in
both cases as the drawer doors are shut..


Naturally, this combination doesn't
pan out.
The unscheduled togetherness can
cause the cables to spread, become bare,
and show up with mashed and other-
wise damaged wires.
The male portions of the 2 switches
can break off, or bend, and not work.

PROTECT THE RADIOS
When it comes right down to it a lot of TLC is needed RADIOS
by crewmen to keep radios in numbah-one shape. OFF
Keep the sets turned off before you crank up the bird. BEFORE
Here's why. Right after engine start the generator kicks CRANKING
in to supply operating voltage.
The excess \oltage, cho momentarily, feeds thru the electrical sssrem to
the radios. If the radios are turned on this "spike" will knock the delicate tran-
sistors for a loop.
To keep your radios out of the repair san follow these simple steps.

1. Crank up Ihe bird. 2. Eye the voltmeter. When you get 3 Turn on your radios
28 volts you're operating at the I -.... q
maximum which means that the
feedback voltage has been picked ~--
up.


4. Let the radio transmitters
warm up for at least two
minutes to reduce undue
stress on components


MAKE SAMPLING TOOL


Taking the 25-hour oil samples from the 42-degree and 90-degree gear
boxes can be a bit of a problem. Once the chip detector is out, mechanics use
scribes, phillips screwdrivers, nails-you name it-to push in on the check
valve and draw the sample.
The result is sometimes a broken valve what a revoltin' development!!
14


To save bird parts, latch onto a salvaged
1/4-in diameter piece of aluminum tubing,
FSN 1560-923-4068, and cut off a piece 41
incheslong.
File down a slot on the OD for packing
ring, FSN 5330-542-1420. The packing wil 'A
keep oil from dripping down the outside a I
the tube when you take the sample.


But enough of that cockamamie sampling tool. Step closer and let's consider
that old bugaboo, foreign object damage, in a new light.

CHECK FOR CAUSES OF FOD
The increased output of the new T53-L13 engine in the HueyCobra and "H"
Model means an increased velocity air flow-thru the same diameter air inlet
as on earlier engines.
So, you can see that FOD is even more critical on this baby. No matter what
Huey you crew, tho, one of your most important maintenance checks is to eye the
engine inlet area before and after every mission.
15


To use this little gem insert it into
the chip detector opening. Push in on
the tool-which will open the valve
evenly-and release oil into the tube
thru the 4 slots in the tool.

FOR PACKING)


Slip the "padding ring
and a salvaged (hip
detector plug over the
tube and your tool is
complete.






Before you mount your charge, eye
the soles of your jungle boots. Stones
get wedged between the cleats and can
fall into the engine inlet area.
Sure, the sand and dust separator
reduces erosion of the compressor
blades and housing. It won't keep
solid objects from entering the engine,
tho.
A stone sucked into a churning
compressor can make mince meat of
the engine for real!! Keep those bro-
gans clean.


Look over all areas, especially forward and above the engine inlet for material
that can ruin the engine.

SCRE CS SEPARATOR
?TIGHT?


DZUSS





See that all nuts, bolts, screws, washers, dzus fasteners and latches on the sand
and dust separator are tight.
After you pull maintenance remember that good housekeeping helps prevent
FOD.
To stop safety wire, cotter pins and other hardware from going into the sepa-
rator during rotor head and engine inlet maintenance, cover the separator. Can-
vas or even a large towel will do the trick.
Before you remove the covering, police-up the area. Remember that rags
and tools left behind will also KO an engine.

Never let anyone who doesn't know the difference between a radio set and a
tool box handle your avionics gear. He's liable to toss your radio in the back of
his deuce-ana-half. After a bumpy ride to support the set will need more than
just a bench check! !
KEEP SETS CLEAN
With the cargo doors off the Huey, dust gets whipped right inside the bird. The
console really takes it on the chin with gummed-up gear trains and shorted-out
components.

using a vacuum cleaner, air hose or a

NO SQUAWKS, PLEASE!
You been getting any gripes about garbled transmission or reception lately?
If you can't pin down the problem to an individual set, have a look-see at the
A-16 impedance matching network in the communication junction box.
All the avionics gear and intercom signals funnel thru these pads on the con-
sole. Dirt can really get booted in there. Add the corrosion that's always
showing up and you've got short circuits-intermittent operation ... complete
failure.
TM 11-1520-210-20 (12 Jul 66) doesn't call for a pullout time for these ba-
bies. Depending on the conditions where you are, better take the pads out and give
'em a cleaning. Some outfits do it on a 100-hour Periodic.
Clean the contacts with a suitable cleaning solvent like Inhibisol. Page 4.65
of Fed Cat C6800-IL (1 Jul 67) lists the solvent. FSN 6850-582-1647 will
get you a gallon can at two bucks a throw. Apply it with a lintless cloth.


IF CORROSION REMAINS ON THE PAP CONTACT
PINS... TAKE IT OFF BY USING NO. OOOG SANDPAPER.
FINISH IT OFF BY USING CROCUS CLOTH.







C_




Be sure not to overlook the receptacle in the junction box. A burnishing tool,
such as CT-265, will get rid of the corrosion. Compressed air (10 psi or less)
and a soft-bristle brush will take care of dust and dirt in resistor and capacitor
assemblies.






PUT 'EM BACK GENTLY
Putting radio sets back in the mounts correctly is mighty important. You'll
damage the RT-348/ARC-54 if you ram it home in the mount when all the mating
connections are not lined up. ---

The metal guide pins are soft metal and bend rather easily. A bent pin means

Tip: In areas where you use LSA it's smart
to put the LSA on the parts that need it
before you put PL Special on the other parts.
This way the LSA's bound to be closest to the
metal it's aiming to protect.

FIRE AWAY WITH LSA
Y'know that note at the top of page 20 in your M60's -10 TM ... the one that
says to put a light film of MIL-L-46000A lube-LSA-inside the gas cylinder
and piston of your weapon after cleaning or inspection only if your gun's sel-
dom used or is stored in the arms room?
Well, forget it.
From now on put that light film of LSA inside the gas cylinder and gas piston
of all M60's in hot, humid areas-whether you're fighting with it every day or
resting it in the arms room.
And don't worry about firing off with the LSA in there. The first round or
two you fire will burn it away ... safely.
The big thing is to get a light film of LSA on these parts.
When you've got the gas system apart and cleaned and inspected according to
the good book, do this:


A OUGHT FILM OF LSA ON...


This'll help fight the corrosion that's bugging M60 gas systems in 'Nam.
One thing you never want to forget, though: Using LSA like this won't ever
excuse you from cleaning and inspecting the piston and cylinder to keep corrosion
from taking a hold.


























Maybe a few words on the "why" for where and how you should position the
handgrip assembly on your M14Al rifle will help prevent some of the busted
stocks and hinges that've been haunting some outfits ...
F'rinstance, when you do it the right way-with the second hook on the
sling through the rung on the bottom of the handgrip and the handgrip
slightly forward in the unlocked position... and the sling dead tight from the
front (bipod) swivel end to hold the handgrip this way-you've got it made.










WRONG RIGHT

This way any blow at the handgrip will be deflected by the sling or the sling
will absorb the shock through its webbing. Also this set-up will keep you from
yanking back too hard and busting the hinge when firing. Besides, it'll give you
better muzzle control during automatic firing.
On t'other hand, if you have the handgrip straight down and locked and leave
the sling loose or allow metal-to-metal contact between the handgrip and the
base, any blow to the handgrip will likely bust the stock above the handgrip.
So-oo-o!

WHAT YOU DON'T KNOW
CAN HURT YOU!


Yep! The old saying is all wrong. If
you don't know how your M126E1
howitzer tube is assembled to the
breechring you can get hurt and the
weapon is sure to be permanently dam-
aged.
Every time the tube or cannon assem-
bly is removed or replaced, check on the
distance from the rear face of the howit-
zer tube to the outside face of the breech-
ring.
If this distance is over 5 inches, call
your direct support and don't fire your
weapon until it's fixed.


NOT OVER
FIVE
INCHES


Because if the distance is over 5 inches
it means the tube could be 1 or more
threads from being properly seated in
the breechring.
So what?
So if the weapon is fired with the tube
not seated, the obturator will not make
a perfect seal and there'll be blow-by
which is sure to ruin the equipment and
might ruin you.


HAPPY LIGHTING
You're right ... the lamp housing for your M1 collimator goes on the fritz
more than you'd like it to. The latest word is that the housing is now an organi-
zational repair part. It goes under FSN 1240-066-7095. You'll find it listed in
the newest -20P TM on your weapon.

PEDALS









A banana peel on a slick floor is no slipperier than the brake and clutch
pedals on some vehicles especially when the pedal surface is all metal, when
the metal's worn down smooth and when you've got mud or snow on your boots.
When you're operation' a vehicle like a G838-series 1/4-ton or G741-series
3/4-ton truck, take care to clean the mud or snow off your boots before hoppin'
in. And keep this stuff cleaned off the pedals, too.
If your CO gives the OK, you can get
extra insurance against slippery pedals
by having little bumps arc welded onto
the pedal. Just across the leading edge
of the pedal may be enough. This'll give
your boots something to grab ahold of.

AR 385-55 (Sep 65), para 25, allows commanders to authorize "additional
devices" for prevention of motor vehicle accidents and you can sure have a
dilly if your foot slips off the brake or clutch pedal at the wrong time.

"^ ---- .r--


You've got a new semiannual service the sediment bowl of the fuel filter
on your M37B1 3/4-ton truck or every 3,000 miles or 6 months.
other G741-series vehicle. You do if
you've got the fuel filter in the engine
compartment. -


A
IREPLA(E ESVERY
O TMONTHS OR
6,000 MILES


Ch 9 (Jun 68) to TM 9-8030 tells
you to replace that fuel filter element
every 6,000 miles or every 6 months,
whichever rolls around first. This new
info goes in the how-to-do-it section of
the TM (para 139), not in Table III
where you find your other semiannual
PM services. Fact is, those other semi-
annual services are pulled at 3,000
miles or 6 months, a shorter mileage
factor than you've got for the fuel filter
element.
But Table III still calls for cleaning


A new filter element comes under
FSN 2910-455-4033, page 21, TM
9-2320-212-20P w/Ch 1 and Ch 2
(Jul 64).
There's no regular replacement of the
element for the in-tank type fuel filter
found in later production vehicles
(after Serial No. 80042292). This filter
gets service only if it happens to be out
for fuel tank servicing or if you sus-
pect the filter's giving you trouble. Then
para 139c in TM 9-8030 tells you how
to clean it.
If you need a new element for the
in-tank fuel filter, it comes under FSN
2910-735-1316, page 24 in the
-20P TM. This FSN has been exhausted
to 2910-955-2010.

TRUCK RIN

Dear Half-Mast,
Our TO&E calls for machinegun ring
mounts on some of our 2h-ton and 5-ton
trucks. In the "remarks" section of the
TO&E, it just says "eqp w/ring mount."
There's no UN or FSN or anything else
to identify these ring mounts or to tell
which ring mount goes on the 2V2-ton trucks
and which one on the 5-tonners.
Where do we find this? Also, where's
the info on maintenance and repair parts?
SFC H. N. K.


Dear Sergeant H. N. K.,
Ord 8 SNL A-55, Section 50 w/Ch 1
(Oct 66), para 9, clues you in on the
fact that both your G742-series 2 1/2-
ton and G744-series 5-ton trucks get
the M36A1 machinegun mount.
This item is listed in SB 700-20 (Jul
68) under LIN M74364 and FSN
1005-317-2427.
Its proper name in SC 1005/35-IL-1
(Jul 67) is Mount, Gun, truck, cal .50,
M36A1 w/e. Price, in Fed Cat C-ML-
A (Aug 68), is $611.
TM 9-2016 w/Ch 1 (Jan 64), the
TM for operation and organizational
maintenance, tells you that a component
of the M36A1 gun mount is the M49
ring mount.
Your support's guide on repair parts
is Ord 8 SNL A-55, Section 50. If you
get a new M36A1 mount, make sure
your support gets the packing list, be-
cause it lists some new repair parts
that don't show up in the SNL.

BREATHER FOR 5-TONNERS

GET
All G744-series 5-ton vehicles with THAT
either the multifuel or diesel engine get MWO
Breather Assy, FSN 2520-272-7965. It APPLIED
goes in the brake and fuel line vent sys-
tem and prevents lines blowing up
from back pressure.
Under MWO 9-2320-211-20/8 (re-
scinded) this breather replaced old
Breather, FSN 2520-466-7518.
If your 5-tonner didn't get that
MWO applied, ask your support to get BREAIHER ASSEMBLY
you the new breather from Ch 2 (Mar FSN 2520 272 7965
67) to TM 9-2320-211-35P.


REGULATOR SHOT? MAYBE

Easy with your truck's generator regulator NOT
even if your tests show it's no good. Your DS wants
to doublecheck it to decide if it goes on the salvage
heap so no firin' it to 'em out of a cannon or
even slingin' it in a truck with a lot of junk. /
There's no more replacement of parts in those
25-amp regulators-FSN 2920-953-9784 or FSN '
2920-335-4677 used in most tactical wheeled
vehicles. DS repair of those regulators is now ,
limited to cleaning and adjustment. If that doesn't ,
make it perk again, it's tossed.


NEW FOR MI51
That's right-now it's 6,000 miles or 6 months for semi-annual PM services
on your M151 or other G838-series 1/4-ton vehicle. The new word's in para
3-19, TM 9-2320-218-10 (Mar 68). This's a switch from the 3,000 miles or 6
months you see in TM 9-2320-218-20, but the -20 TM will be pickin' it up in
a change or revision. You'll be seeing' this 6,000 miles factor for some other
vehicles, too.






DRIVER TESTER
If your outfit has a big job of training and testing drivers, you may need Driver
Testing and Training Device, Portable, FSN 6930-526-3639. For $172 you get
from the U.S. Army Mobility Equipment Command a complete kit to turn recruits
into wheeled-vehicle pilots: Books, reaction time and eye-testing gear, controls
and all are included. You need 110V 60-cy AC to run it.

SBEEP-BEEP-BEEP


That's the signal to right that wrong FSN for Retainer, electrical contact:
horn button cable contact. It's in Ch 1 (Nov 62) to TM 9-2320-212-20P under
FSN 2920-626-0236, but it should be FSN 2590-626-0236. The right FSN shows
up in Fed Cat C2590-IL-A (Apr 68) and will be picked up in the next -20P
change or revision.


MULTIFUEL PUMP HUMP

If the in-tank fuel pump on your 2 1/2-ton or 5-ton multifuel truck is on the
fritz, don't expect support to fix it. There's no kit to be had. Just get a replace-
ment ... but only after you've checked connections and made sure it's not just
a loose wire.
Though some TM's say the pump is recoverable, forget it. Here's the late
info on which of 3 new pumps goes with what vehicle:










The three listed here replace old standby FSN 2910-765-9594. See page 10,
Ch 2 (Apr 67), to TM 9-2320-211-20P and page 27, Ch 3 (Sep 66), TM 9-2320-
209-35P.

Sy'SQUEEZEP OUT,

You have to develop a lot of hand action to pack grease into a bearing. This
takes experience -and elbow grease.
It doesn't really matter whether you develop an "old pro" knack for the
wheel bearings in your vehicle, tho. There's a bearing lubricator, FSN 4930-
704-1852, in the lubricating kit of your No. 1 and No. 2 Common Tool Kits.
This little gem does a good job of getting grease into every nook and cranny.
That's because you're purging out the old and putting in the new with the pres-
sure of a grease gun.

GASKET SAVING NOTE

NOT QUITE
PU TE GOLD,


Listen up on this, all you mechanics
who might remove the magneto on an
M48A2 tank or other vehicle with a
similar engine.
When the magneto (scintella) FSN
2920-593-6456 (7974215) comes off,
there's a gasket with it, Gasket,
magneto cover, FSN 5330-774-4849,
(7744849).
Now this l'il gasket don't look like
much so some mechanics throw it away.
Well, it turns out the homely looking'
l'il silver gasket costs your U.S. Uncle


$2.37 per which is just too much green
to be throwing away.
So cut it out, hey! Include the gasket
when you turn in the magneto to your
support for repair on a DX deal. Re-
sult: Everybody happy and nobody will

On all models the gun control cable (it's called gun switch cable in some
manuals) goes in through a cable connector on the right side of the control box.
All you do to wire in the gun is remove the terminal screws from terminal strip
T1 (located on the floor of the control box), hook up the right lead to the right
terminal and anchor the leads with the screws. The leads are color coded and the
terminal strip connections are numbered.

GUN CABLE CHECK
Two or 3 cables, depending on which set you have, are POWER CABLE
permanently attached to the gun. But the only gun cable you
have to wire to a terminal strip is the gun control cable. W
For example: CABLK
The larger, black cable is the gun's welding power cable
and it simply plugs into the control assembly.
On the older models the gun's ground cable also hangs GUN
from the gun. But, all you do with that cable is attach it to a CONTROL
terminal on the side of the control box. CABLE










SAFE/TIGHT CONNECTIONS
All lead, hose and cable connections must be good and tight. So check
connections for tightness as you make 'em. Also, the waterproof cable con-
nectors and bushings which hold and protect the cables and hoses passing
into the boxes must be tight to help keep the boxes clean and dry.
And, first and foremost before you make any connections be sure the voltage-
control switch on the control box and the generator power switch are on OFF.
OK now that the prelims are out of the way here's the $$$$ word on
wiring the gun-

MIG RIG TIPS
Remember, you need reverse polarity with MIG welding to get deeper pene-
tration on the base plate, and to avoid burn back in the guide tube.
Check your generator's operating instructions for the reverse polarity setting.
The sets operate on 115-volt AC or DC power. When a generator isn't equip-
ped with a 115-volt receptacle the cable can be hooked-up to standard 115-volt
shop current.
On the Sigmette model (FSN 3431-837-5574,DA Contract 11-199-Ord-534),
however, the 115-volt supply source must not be earth grounded or hooked
up to either side (power or ground) of the welding power supply source.
52






Make sure the 115-volt power receptacle, or
power cord adapter for the 115-volt cable, has
a good electrical ground.
The flowmeter on the argon regulator tells
you how much argon gas is going to the gun.
And, the regulator's pressure gage tells how
much pressure you have in the argon cylinder.
Treat the argon regulator c-a-r-e-f-u-l-l-y.
Never yank or grab the regulator by the flow-
meter tube guard.
Before installing the regulator, open the argon cylinder just a crack to blow
off any dirt.
And, never stand in front of the regulator when you're cracking the cylinder
valve.
Just before installing the regulator be sure the flow-adjust valve is turned
(clockwise) off all the way.
When you're installing the regulator, cradle it in one hand and screw the
inlet connector nut to the argon cylinder valve with the other hand. Tighten
the nut carefully with a wrench.
The regulator must be installed with the flowmeter standing upright.

When you're switching job locations disconnect the power
and ground cables from the generator. And, coil all the cables
for easy handling, cable protection ... and your safety.
Disconnect the argon regulator from the argon hose and
from the cylinder, and handle the regulator like fragile stuff.
It's OK to hand-carry the M'G set for a short way, but if
your next job is-a good way off, always pack the set in its

Before you hook up a bunch of bat-

get a polarity reading (any standard

If the outlets marked (+) turn out to
really be (-) and (-) ones (+), you
need a wire-switching job between the

NEW MOUNTS ALL
EA







Your 45-KW Stewart & Stevenson Model 52300 generator may look healthy,
but if it's wearing a serial above -1881, it could have a real bug gnawing inside
... so stop the chewing.
The bug is that the noise-filter-choke brackets break after 800 hours or so,
shorting out the set. Support can put the blocks to that.
The fix is to take out the noise-filter-choke and make new mounts out of
1/8-in thick angle iron. Either 7/8-in width (FSN 9520-277-5984) or 1-in width
(FSN 9520-288-1106) works great. Aluminum 1-in angle (FSN 9540-145-5752)
is good. Tell your support to requisition 20 inches for each generator.

5-KW HOL-GARS BOIL

Oil starvation messes up a good many Hol-Gar CE-56-AC generators and
the secret is something the pubs don't tell.
TM 5-6115-312-15 on this set says the crankcase takes 3-1/2 quarts but
the oil filter soaks up another quart, and that's the catch. The set can run out
of oil quicker'n the 10 hours it's supposed to last between checks, or overheat
and plain burn.
One cure is to run the engine 20 minutes to a half hour after an oil change,
then add another quart, making 4-1/2 quarts in all.
It helps to have a visual check on oil
level, too, for a run all night or 'round
the clock. To do that, you take off the
drain-line elbow of the oil-drain line
and apply this fix:













Cap the opening finger-tight with a pipe cap. Then when you check the oil
level, you ought to see it about 2/3 of the way up in that nipple; if not, add.
When you make a dipstick check on oil like the LO says, have the letters
on the stick facing the engine front. and no screwing the cap down on the
filler neck.
And out of the tail of your eye, if the weather's above freezing, look to see
the flywheel shutters are open good 'n' wide. But let nobody take 'em off.

You never let the fuel drip into the heater before preheating the stack or

face-lifts:


COMPOSITE ITEM (HECK
The.new rule on logs for composite items calls for a
checkout on the log for any end item that has other end
items as components. Here's a (large) thumbnail version
of the rule:


and communication end items (400000 category):


1. Composite end item is required to have
a complete log as spelled out in Ap-
\ pendixes III and V and paro 4-22.


2. Electronics and communication end
items that are components of a com-
posite end item in this same category
need only MWO inserts in the com-
posite item log (DA 2409 or DA 2408-5
as required in para 4-22). (The log
would need an index, DA 2408-10, but
DA 2408-3, 2408-7, 2408-8 and non-
feedback forms like DA 2408-10 for
components and DA 2408-14 would
not be initiated or maintained for the
component end item.)


4. Code changes in Appendix I include
major revisions in utilization (Table

b.For everything but electronics and communication end items, all forms listed on category lines
(Appendixes III and V and para 4-22) are required even when the item is included as a compo-
