MATH, NAlCH


Read that V n V'belt for Vital.
It tells you the shape of the belt. but the shape the belts are in makes the dif.
ference between GO and NO-GO power.
Because they're hard-working and out of sight, they're often ignored while
the more glamorous parts of the equipment get all the PM attention. But if they
slip or break, the equipment they're serving is-for the time being-just a
piece of expensive junk.


S MISMATING
CAN LEAD 10TO
DISASTER!


Matched set bells have identical Part Num-
bers and Mold Numbers on each belt
The cure is easy-


Mismating ruins belts fast, and it's
as eas) to see as a pair of pants w ith one
leg longer'n the other.
An old belt may hase as much as an
inch stretch for even foot length. W5 th
matched sets \ou get 1/20th inch differ-
ence or less.
Bur team an old belt and a new one,
and the new belt gets the A hole load ...
which rears up the new belt and burns
the older one.
You can get the wrong belt from
supply belts can get switched in the
shop pulleys get switched or mis-
placed .. so doublecheck pullers and
belts.


POLICE THE LINEUP


Killer No. 1 is wrong alinement.
Canted pulleys can ruin new belts in no
time.
The best check-up tool is a straight-
edge, like a yardstick.
Pulleys too far ahead (or back) or
shafts keyed wrong are jobs for your
unit wrench wizard-the mechanic.
Before you call, also check the throats
on both your drive pulley set and driven
pulley set for wear in the wrong places.


TYPICAL MISAIJNEMENT


NEE iBU Oi EE


ARA>






A pulley wearing bright on the bot-
tom and little or none on the sides either SHINY
has a worn-out belt-or one misplaced BOTTOM
or too small. If one pulley gets a shiny
bottom and the next pulley shows shiny
sides, you have a pulley mismatch.

Undersized belts can overspeed the
items they drive by as much as 100 per
PROPER cent. Just remember: the slanted part,
RIDING the sides, do the work on a V-belt. If it
POSITION rubs the bottom or crowds the sheave
top, something's wrong! (Sheave is that
groove built into your pulley.)


DON'T LOSE FACE
Face does matter on pulleys .. cracks, dents, and chips there make sheaves
worse than worthless. Grit or oil and sand spilling over sheave faces dish them
out so badly no belt made will fit right.
Look for cracked bushings or bent shafts. They make sheaves wobble and
that can wreck the accessory being driven as well as ruin belts.









Check e'ern few da\s
to see ii Sour belt is living in
a good neighborhood. Oil
dripping on faces, overheating, bent guards, or fan blades beating your belts
bring on stretch, cuts, and uneven wear.

^Jj U 'A OIL AND
HEATE ANDSE
RUBBER'S
WORST
ENEMY!


New belts need special care-you can't just install 'em and forget 'em. They
have to get seated and adjusted.
Make sure you adjust at the end of the first hour's run. The next checkup is
made 8 running hours later. Then you check and adjust again every 200 hours -
or as much oftener, in rough service, as your SOP calls for.

TOO TOO
LOOSE TIGHT

Y2 INCH
JUST DEFLECTION
RIGHT... PER FOOT

Mostly you have to watch tension. Take a good hard push with your thumb
halfway between the pulleys. You ought to get 1/2-in or a hair more of deflection
for each foot of span. This works on vehicle accessory belts, small pumps, and
such, but for heavier engineer drives--rock crushers, conveyors, and stuff on
power takeoffs more'n 40 HP-use your TM recipe.

Your M60 machine gun is a double-barreled shotgun which is a fact that
could save your hide.
You're issued 2 barrels for each M60 one on the gun, one spare.
You put on the spare barrel when the other overheats which it'll do fast
- every time you fire cyclic, or get off 200 rounds a minute for 10 minutes -
Or even when you burn 100 rounds a minute for 10 minutes.
So never, leave that case and barrel at base, or anyplace but right in your
pack -
You need a cool barrel the worst way when you do need one.
So keep it handy, along with the mitten you'll need to change a hot barrel.

Y'say your .30-cal M37 MG stopped firing, after only 3 rounds? Quick, lift
the cover and see if maybe you've got the ejector and extractor positioned wrong
for the way your weapon's feeding. For right-hand feeding, the ejector's gotta
be to the left of the extractor. For left-hand feed, the ejector must be to the right
of the extractor. Para 20 of FM 23-55 (Jul 65) has all the scoop.

RESISTOR SAVERS... WATCH IT!


When the support types pull a
duplexer from your Nike-Herc MTR/
TTR antenna, be sure they also pull
the R16 resistor in the radio-frequency
monitor chassis.
An R16 is matched (to 1/100 of an
ohm) with the thermister mount used
on the basic MTR/TTR duplexer, and
with the probe used on the improved
TTR duplexer. It'll work only with its
matched component in any duplexer.
So, keep in mind- an R16 is actually

n_


a part of the thermister or the probe,
it's not a separate item, it doesn't have
an FSN... and, it must remain with its
matched component for life... and,
that includes going to salvage together.
Leaving an R16 behind cheats the
rebuild shop because the unserviceable
components can't be repaired without
a matched resistor... .and, a replace-
ment runs something like 198-bucks.
An odd R16 can also cause you grief,
if it should be installed in the radio-
frequency monitor by mistake.


So you read what ir sa)s in TB 746-92.1 (7 Dec
68) about painting and you figure you'd better do
something about the rocket motor cluster for your
Nike-Hercules missile.
Good thinking, but there's not that kind of rush.
Waiting until you have the round disassembled for
other maintenance is time enough.

W 1HUMIDISTAT
Dear Half-Mas, EMERGENCY ONLY EIT HUMIDITY AT 50o
Dear Half-Mast,
On the 60,000 BTU air conditioners for our Nike-Hercules BC and RC vans
there's a humidistat for controlling the humidity. What should it be set at?
Also, the van temperature meters are supposed to be set so that the buzzer
will sound when the mercury hits 140 F inside--like when the air conditioner
goes on the fritz. That's kinda high, no?
SFC C. A.
Dear Sergeant C. A.,
A temperature of about 75*F with a humidity reading in the neighbor-
hood of 50 percent is close to ideal. 'Course ... you also want to make
sure you hold the exhaust temperature in the equipment ventilating cab-
inet the way the instruction plate in the cabinet tells you.
You're right... 1400F is high. But as it says in para 96c of TM 9-1430-
250-10 (15 Dec 58), "Under these conditions with the damper and shutter
level set to the open position only emergency operation of the equipment
should be continued." S- A Hl 4

Moisture and just plain water can
cause corrosion that'll ruin things like
gears and bearings.
The time to look for the stuff is when
you pull the quarterly service on the
spur gears .. and the tools to use are
a flashlight and the mouth-examining
mirror in your electronic assembler tool
kit. If you spot any moisture, get rid of
it... and then take bets that at least one
cover gasket is shot.
While you're at it, look to see if any
grease has been slopped around by the
gears ... or maybe is caked and diren.
If so, it's cleaning time.

STENCIL IT
Dear Half-Mast,
The "APS SERVICE DOOR" identification
has worn off some of our Nike-Hercules
missiles, a deal that got us some short-
comings during a recent CMMI. Who is sup-
posed to put the marking on the door ...
and what is used--a stencil or rubber

Dear Mr. L. A.,
The Organizarion does it. using a
1/4-inch stencil. The right paint is
black lusterless enamel. A 1-gal can is

Here's whv: If sou tighten [he bolt

bust off % hen the barrel cluster re\s up.
Then the barrels will wobble around
Sand could tire into the chopper. Yeow!
If .ou tighten the new bolt too much,
Sit will also bust. It'Il just take more
torque and a little more time- but it

We started an aircraft daily inspection
on a fresh copy ofDA 2408-13, and en-
r' tered "Daily Inspection Due" in block 17 Q l)
with a red dash in block 16.
Then on the previous day's DA 2408-
13 we found an entry that said the engine
idle stop solenoid had been removed.
This entry was transcribed to block 17
l) of the current DA 2408- 13 with a red X
in block 16. There were no uncorrected
faults on DA 2408-14.
While the crew continued the inspection, the solenoid previously removed
was "Inspected OK" by the TI and reinstalled. The mechanic put his initial over
the red X in block 16.


m' I I -
Later-when the inspection was completed-the crew chief put his initial over
the red dash (for the inspection) in block 16.
That left no uncorrected faults on the aircraft-either on DA 2408-13 or DA
2408-14. The way we see it, no faults ,ow "exist" as spelled out in para 4-13c
(2)(j) of TM 38-750. So our crew chief put his last-name initial in box I of block
7 on the DA 2408-13.


did we go wrong?
SP5 A. M. R.


But it's logical to make the first status entry as soon as you find that the air-
craft has an uncorrected fault-or faults. When you've carried over an uncor-
rected fault from the previous day's DA 2408-13 -or found one on DA 2408-14
-this entry during the first step of your daily inspection (TB 55-1500-301-25
and sequence item 1.1 of the -20 PMD) starts the aircraft day as far as status is
concerned. So the first symbol in box 1 of block 7 should be the one for the most
serious uncorrected aircraft fault carried over from the previous day or the sym-
bol for the inspection due-if that's more serious than any carried-over fault.
If the status of the aircraft changes
as a result of (1) fault corrections dur-
ing the inspection or (2) discovery of an ,. ...
additional fault or faults during the in- 15JUN69 UH-IC
section then the new status symbol ST;TUSTODAY
should go in box 2 of block 7 at the same ..C... I T. ....
time the status symbol in block 16 is
changed as spelled out in para 4-13c(2) 2
(t)3 of TM 38-750. 3
And, during the day's operations, a FUEL GA .b-)
new symbol would be entered any time -
another fault which changes aircraft i-.oe .DDE : noe o.
status is found.

Which symbol represents
a condition or fault that
TO ENTER affects aircraft status
THE SYMBOLS (safety of flight)?
RIGHT IN BLOCK f
7, YOU HAVE Among the symbols which
represent conditions or
TESE TWONS faults that affect aircraft
status, which represents
the most serious condi-
S edition or fault?
C-












The degree of seriousness of the condition or fault represented by the 4-status
symbols is:

(Deficiency) Most serious. Never entered on DA 2408-14.

(Deficiency) Only a red X is more serious. This symbol is used
only for command-authorized one-time flight or restricted operation. Never
entered on DA 2408-14.

IfB- B(PM or inspection due) Even though this symbol is listed
last in para 4-2c(1) of TM 38-750, only a red X or a circled red X is more
serious. Normally used on DA 2408-13, but with command approval may be
transcribed to DA 2408-14 when it represents a component overdue for replace-
ment or when application of a Normal MWO is deferred beyond its specified
application date.


1 'l (Formerly called a shortcoming) Represents
less serious fault or condition than any of the other 3 status symbols. Used on
DA 2408-13 and, with command approval, on DA 2408-14.

Now, back ro the spe-. 01 0 O,
cifics of the problem you
described. Your frst sia-
rus symbol entry under
"Aircraft" in box I of
block 7 should have been
a red X for the uncor.

Note that on initial entered alone in block 7 is used only to indicate that no
faults exist on the aircraft- as spelled out in para 4-13c(2)(lJ1. Subpara 3 of
the same paragraph tells you that a status symbol, once entered in block 7,
"will not be initialed over, erased, changed, or duplicated even if entered in

That's the block 7 box score as it looks from here.

Control cable pulle)s on )our birds
are tough. They hold up under a lot of
tension!!
But pulleys wear. Take those smooth-
ies on your Raven (OH-23) for exam-
ple. Tension on tail rotor control cables
will groove the pulleys.
When are grooves bad enough to
warrant a pulley change? Come closer,
man!
Eyeball the pulley channel. Then
make the feel test.


If the cable twists, rotates or jumps
up and down like a jumping bean the
grooves are too deep and the pulley
needs changing.

Dear Mr. A. F. L., __
The engine will clue you when it starts acting up.
Some oil in the lower intake pipes and combustion chamber is not unusual
for radial engines that have been idle for 3 hours or more.
The amount of oil leakage is excessive when engine oil consumption is high
enough to limit the range of your bird or when oil in the induction system
regularly fouls the spark plugs.
Oil in the induction system can give you an improper fuel mixture which in-
creases the chances of detonation. You know what detonation can do to an engine
-overheat, fatigue the scrap heap! !



Oil leakage am be crmsed by worn valve guides
in which case oil drins into he lower intake pipes
when the engine's not operating.
Worn piston rings will also allow oil to flow
into the combustion chamber. 5 EASV/ TO
FIND 17.!


To find out if the seal is the culprit, ground run the engine for 10 minutes at
high power settings. Shutdown the engine and eye the intake pipes on cylinders
number 3 and 7 for oil.
The R1340-61 engine overhaul work specs have been revised to closer toler-
ances and more exacting clearances in the area of the impeller seal. So, leaking
impeller seals should give you less trouble in the future. J/







YES INDEED WE DO?
YUP.
Dear Windy, I
I came across an entry on the DA Form
2408-18 for our Seminole that has me
baffled!!
It seems that every third periodic we're
supposed to remove the engine generator REMOVE THE GENFRATOR
and eyeball the drive shaft splines for EYEBALL THE SPLINES
excessive wear which can lead to failure.
TB 750-931-1/1, Ch 1 (21 Nov 66) is
referenced on the form. A look at the Sem-
inole PMP checksheets calls for no such
check.
Do we pull the generator for inspection?
SP6 E. D. B.

Dear Specialist E. D. B.,
Yessir-e-e, eye the old 100-amp generator, P/N 30059-002, which is listed
in the technical bulletin.
The new 200-amp generator, P/N 30E20-11B, also gets the big look.



CYLINDERS A-OK
Dear Windy,
There's a difference of opinion-and
that's putting it mildly-about cylinder
seepage on our Bird Dog 0-470-11B
engine.
STAIN a We get what appears to be oil stains
HERE where the cylinder barrel is shrunk into
OK the cylinder head.
This seepage-does it or doesn't it call
KSOOL. IT. for a cylinder change? SP6 B. A.


Dear Specialist B. A.,
Relax! No cylinder change is needed unless there is a loss of compression or
some other serious fault.
The stain is actually lubricant applied at the factory when the cylinder barrel
is threaded into the head.
Very slight gas seepage forces the lubricant out. It usually stops when the
threads are plugged with carbon during engine operation.
The condition is not hazardous. Engine operation and performance are not
affected. / ).,/






PASS THE
DOUGHNUTS,
PLEASE!
B^^^ ^-f


It's true-Seminole (U-8) engine ex-
haust stacks are flat so that they mate
flush with the cylinders ... no gaskets
needed.
But, don't get steamed-up when a
stack mounting flange becomes warped
and starts to leak!
It's doughnuts-er-r-r-r gaskets, to
the rescue!
'Course the stack flange must be flat
.006-in maximum, for the gaskets to
make a complete seal.
Use 2 gaskets, P/N 73720, FSN
5330-069-9647.


Add gaskets at the other 2 exhaust
stacks on the same bank of cylinders.
The 6 gaskets will give you the right
stack alinement.
No need to use gaskets on the other
side of the engine unless there's a leak
there also. Then you'll need gaskets on
all cylinders.


THE FLAT SIDE GOES TOWARD THE
CYLINDER HEAD AND THE RAISED
BEAD SIDE TOWARD THE STACK
FLANGE... GASKET BEADS
INTERLOCKED!

Your AN/GRC-50(V) radio set'll hit
the communications high-spots and give
dependable service-but it'll make out
even better if the AT-903/G antenna is
properly alined.
Naturally, what you're after with
antenna alinement is the best possible
results. So-o-o-o-
Before starting the alinement, dis-
connect the patches at the repeaters, to
arrange a multi-hop system as single
hops.
When you're using PCM multiplex-
ers as terminal equipment, turn off the
multiplexers during antenna alinement.
When you've got the mast and an-
tenna installed (instructions in TM 11-
5820-538-12 Jun 67) and your single-
hop system is set up, then rotate the
antenna toward the target station. For
this, you can use info from a topograph-
ical map. Establish communication over
the order wire circuit.
Next, you extend the remote order
wire circuit from receiver R-1148(P)/ e
GRC or R-1331(P)/GRC, or the order
wire binding posts on the outside of the
shelter wall, to the base of the antenna
mast, using the TA-312 telephone set.
Connect your H-91 headset (if it's
available) to the TA-312 to free both
hands for mast rotation while you're
communicating.
Don't crank your TA-312 for signal- r
ing unless the TA-182 telephone con- n
verter is installed in the circuit. r
You can use the following methods
for peaking the signal level:
For a reading of 25 or under on the l
REC SIGNAL meter, rotate the mast t
in one direction until the noise level of o
the order wire circuit increases sharply; I

row on the base plate. Rotate the mast
through the maximum signal level until
you get a 15 reading on the meter.
Mark the position of the yellow ar-
row on the base plate, then rotate the
mast to a point midway between the
marks on the base plate.
When you've completed the antenna
alinement, lock the mast in position,
reconnect the repeater patches, and start
your electrical system alinement.






NIGHT VISION NOTES
Tonight, or any other night you plan to use your night vision sight AN/TVS-
2 (Varo Models 9927 or 9927A), is the perfect time to apply a basic PM pointer
or 2 which'll keep it, and you, in action.


Resist the urge to pry the
reticle power cable loose. That
hard rubber shield is intention-
ally glued to the chassis...
for several very good reasons.
Think about 'em, and resist.
Otherwise, you're setting your
sight up for a repair job.


The sight's hood screws gotta

TERMINAL
STRIP
DRIP A


Moisture can make a drip of the terminal strip in your MK-1039/G head-
set-microphone kit (used on CVC helmets with AN/VRC-12 series radio sets).
In heavy rains water can seep onto the terminals of the CX-10453/G cord
assembly and short 'em out. You can cure it, so hang in there while you get
some clues.
If a drippy strip happens to you, you'll get a loud, continuing squeal in all
3 switch positions of the MK-1039 while it's connected to the C-2298/VRC
intercom control. Further, the radio set will stay keyed. You can't transmit,
and you can't use intercom.
You organization repairmen can put the fix on it like so: Take the headset-
mike off the helmet. Eyeball the 4-screw terminal strip that's giving you the
trouble (see page 1-3 of TM 11-5965-282-15).


THIS STRIP!./ /


Dry the strip and spray the screw connector and other exposed metal there
with MFP varnish FSN 5970-683-4297 or 5970-548-9520. That's quart-size
... and do what it says on the container.
When you remount the MK-1039, be sure you don't scratch the varnish.

Dear Editor, I/
To discourage personnel working around the AN/TPN-8 and -18 radar sets from
mangling a hand while the "cocktail shaker" (elevation actuator arm) is operating,
we came up with an 8- by 8-in aluminum safety plate.
The plate attaches to the frame around the radar set and keeps the operator from
using the frame as a hand rest. With a I-in clearance between frame and arm, using
the frame as a rest can result in a serious injury from the moving cocktail shaker.
Any kind of guard or safety plate would be satisfactory, just so it doesn't interfere
with operation of the arm.

YR TIP'N' RINC... which could beneirtdoc
&IPN'RING!


Is R-5 resistor ruination plaguing the
18A3B panel of your CV-1548/G tele-
phone signal converter?
Reversed polarity of the tip and ring
wires can heat up the R-5 causing
visible scorching of the panel.
This can be caused by problems in
your MTC-I or MTC-9 switchboard,


ir or miles down


Thing to do is: Contact the operator
of the swithboard and tell him the tip
and ring wires seem to be reversed.
The operator should then call his
maintenance man to check into reverse
polarity of the tip and ring assembly.


HERE'S A GASSER FOR YOU


Nitrogen gas that's just a scope hair off required purity can
put the $12,000.00 compressor of your AN/AAS-14A Infra-
red Detector Set in the salvage yard. Naturally, that knocks
out a No. 1 tactical device.
The gas must be 99.95 per cent pure. No less. There are
only 2 FSN's that'll get you the purity you need: 6830-656-
1596 and 6830-782-2643.When you use this number 2643
specify "no substitute." The only difference is in the size
PURE of the container.You can't use any other without tearing up
T6E the compressor. A substitute gas (even 99.5 per cent pure)
Splugs up the adsorber in the compressor-refrigerator in
lJ ess than 100 hours operation.
FSN 6830-656-1596 gets you a 200-cubic-ft container. The
only other one you should accept is FSN 6830-782-2643,
which gets you a 184-cubic-ft container of the same purity
nitrogen gas. Accept no substitute.
You should spell out the only acceptable substitute on your
requisition form.






KEEP THAT KLYSTRON


HOLD

NEWT!





Keep that V1501 (MKK-24) klystron tube in your AN/MPQ-4A radar set, at
least until you check it out.
Even if it fails to oscillate, it may still be good.
Y'see, the jumper connecting the heater cathode DC ground return is
missing from the plug on all klystrons procured on Contract DAAB-05-67-
C-1116.
Have your support shop measure the resistance between pins A and C on the
plug. If the measurement indicates an open circuit, the klystron won't oscillate.
Be sure to install the klystron like it says in TM 11-5840-208-20. Set the kly-
stron tuning screw and klystron drive assembly to the extreme clockwise position.
Adjust the klystron as per para 29A through 29D of TM 11-5840-208-20. If
you run into any problems, call for help from support.

Ho%'d you like to tackle a forced march %ith %our gas mask inler fouled up?
You wouldn't get far-you'd be fighting' for air, you'd get weak, your legs
would buckle and you'd drop in your tracks for sure.
That's about what happens to your multifuel engine truck when its air cleaner
gets plugged with dirt...
... like when you don't clean the filter element more often in dusty opera-
tions ...
... or you don't do a good job of cleaning when you finally get around to the
job.
< HOW EVERY DAY'S

Figure it this na3): .. ..
If you get all dirty ridin' up in the cab, your engine air cleaner is gerrin' it
worse-suckin' in gobs of that dusty air, at about 410 CFM as a matter of fact.


BREATHE EASY
Take a look at your air filter indicator once in awhile. If it shows red, your
filter's plugged up and your engine's fighting' for air. So you hop out, just as soon
as you can, and give your filter element the ol' emergency treatment.


Black exhaust smoke or poor engine power usually means your air cleaner's in a bad way -
even if your air restriction indicator doesn't tell you- so keep an ear 'n' an eye out for those
signals to clean your air filter.


Under real dusty conditions, you might have to go through this routine several
times a day to keep your truck breathing' easy.






BLOW IT OUT...

Back at the motor pool, before you worry about getting yourself clean, haul
out that air filter element for a better cleaning.

BATH TIME


At least every 1,000 miles, you change
your filter element.
But you don't throw your old one
away. It may still be good and can be
used again after it's'washed and dried:
Before washing the filter element,
you give it the complete air hose treat-
ment. Then, if your inspection shows no
sign of damage, you wash the element,
like so:



1. Use detergent and cool, or lukewarm,
I water in a dean tub or bucket. Never use
gasoline or other solvent to clean the
filter element.


SOAPY
WATER

2. Let the filter element soak for 5-10 min-

3. Then slosh it around to wash off the dirt. ... THEN CLEAN

4. Rinse the element in clean water.
5. Shake it good to get most of the water
out and maybe some more dirt at the
same time.

6. Look the element over good for holes or SHAKE

before. ,, WATER

another round.



DRY... DRY... DRY
A washed air filter element must be thoroughly dry before it's put back into
service (drying may take as much as 3 days in real damp weather). There's a
terrific suction through your air filter, and your engine can pull water right out
of it-maybe setting up a hydrostatic lock condition in the cylinders.

Dear Half-Most,
We hove oil bath air cleaners on some of our vehicles and also on some of our
generators and earth-moving and load-lifting engineer equipment.
Oil in the air cleaner reservoir sometimes needs changing in between the intervals
called for by the LO.
Two questions:
How dirty is dirty when deciding whether the oil needs changing?
Is used engine oil suitable for use in the reservoir (as some LO's specify)?
COL S. A. R.


Dear Colonel S. A. R.,
There was a time when 1/4 inch of
sludge in the bottom of the reservoir
was the most allowable.
Now, though, any sludge or grit
sitting on the bottom of the reservoir
is too much. If a finger, rubbed across


the bottom, brings up sludge, it's time
to change oil. Rubbing some oil be-
tween the fingers may show there's dirt
"suspended," or floating, in the oil, but
this by itself is not enough reason to
change the oil.
Dirt settles to the bottom of the reser-
voir when the oil becomes so loaded
with light, airborne dirt that it can't
hold any more. Then the oil doesn't do
the job it's supposed to. Dirt carried
on into the engine cuts its efficiency-
and life.
Saving on oil at the expense of an
engine-or a mission-is a losing
game.
For the same reason, used engine oil
in the air cleaner reservoir is out. Older
LO's that call for used engine oil will
be changed to specify new engine oil.

SOGGY CYLINDERS













Dear Mr. R. S. L.,
Before a newly-installed air-hydrau-
lic cylinder is condemned as a bad one,
it'd be best to check 'n' see that it was
bled-per paras 180b(6) and 177c in
TM 9-2320-211-20 w/Ch 1, 2. 3 & -

BLEEDING THE SYSTEM 1'uFii'
INSTALLATION IS CRITICAL!

Some "bad" cylinders have been
found to be perfectly OK-just a case
of the mechanic forgetting to go through
that critical bleeding procedure during
installation.
Since you're keeping your cylinders
well lubed, their short life in service
may come from water allowed to build
up in the air reservoir tanks. ;-,9 ..
So the hint here is:
Drain air tanks more often--even
every couple hours if condensation is DRAIN THE AIR RESERVOIR TANKS

HINGE PIN
HINT I


Your sturdy 5-ton dump truck will
leave you flat someday, if you don't lube
the hinge pin regularly.
When a hinge pin on an MS1 or
M51A2 rusts, it freezes to the sub-
frame bearing, cracking the welds.
Coaxin' or cussin' won't help you
then. What you'll need is a rewelding
job on the sub-frame bearing-and
it'll have to be according to TM 9-237
(Nov 67).
Save the labor. Keep the hinge pin
well lubed, and you'll see everything
will be jim-dandy. LUBE THE HINGE PINS
will be jim-dandy.

Water getting into the tool box of your M127A1C
or other G750-series 12-ton semitrailer? Don't wait
until it rusts away your tool box innards and dam-

Like underarm wetness, "diesel slob-
ber" only looks bad.
So, maybe you've got trouble and -
maybe you don't when you spot what
seems to be oil leaking out of the ex-
haust manifold joints on your multifuel
engine. Before you holler for help, find
out if it's only a case of diesel slobber.
Give your vehicle a good road run.
Get your engine up to normal operating
temperature. Keep 'er there for a few
minutes. Then stop and check your HEK
exhaust manifold again. FOR I
Still leaking? You may have a sick
engine-get help.
No wetness? It was diesel slobber-

likely to happen when humidity's high
and temperature's low. No problem.

'THAT BANPAGE
SMELLS OF
` PERFUME.

Your life, or the life of your buddy,
may depend upon your first aid kit, and
that's why it's so important to know
how to take care of it.
S-T-E-R-I-L-E is the clue you're look-
ing for. \
You have a first aid pouch in which
you carry a first aid dressing and a
packet of sodium chloride-sodium bicar-
bonate mixture.
FIRST AID DRESSING
The first aid dressing is just a gauze
pad and two gauze strips. It may be the
tie-on type, FSN 6510-201-7455, or the
pin-on type (2 safety pins), FSN 6510-
935-7084. The pad's placed over the
wound to stop the loss of blood and
body fluids, and it also keeps dirt out
of the wound.
The dressing may be packaged in a
plastic bag or it may be wrapped in
aluminum foil, then it's put in a card-
board outer wrapper. Check that outer --_
wrapper to see if it's in good condition.
If it's been damaged, check the inner --i BE
wrapper to make sure it's air tight.
If you have the dressing that's in the THE FIRST AID

LUBE THE MITE RIGHT


When you use the M106 portable
disperser (Mity Mite), be sure to check
the gear-box lube daily, or else you'll
soon be minus your handy disperser.
The gear-box-blower assembly will
konk out on iou.


The Mite, in fact, is authorized a
warning decal, FSN 7690-800-0687 to
help you remember the daily lube check.
Order it using RIC B54.


In case you've missed it, the oil filler
plug is on the side of the gear box, just
under the muffler flange, and you have
to use the Mite's socket key to remove
the plug. The disperser takes Lubricat-
ing Oil, general purpose, corrosion re-
sistant, symbol LO(FSN9150 252 -
6174) and when it's sitting up its cor-
rect oil level is just under the filler plug.
To fill the gear box you have to tilt
the disperser on its side, but take care
you don't overfill it, so you'll not have
overflow problems. And, be sure to wipe
up any spilled oil before you operate
the disperser.




N~






< MITYY MITE ,
FUEL


The correct fuel mix for the engine on the M106 (Mity Mite) disperser is:
1/2 pint of oil (OE 30) to 1 gallon of gas. But, some goofed-up gas-tank caps
call for only 1/4 pint of oil. That kind of mix will damage the Mite's 2-cycle
engine. So, check your disperser's gas cap soonest and chuck it if it doesn't read
right. Replace it with the spare cap, FSN 2910-560-0119, authorized in the
disperser's BIIL. See page 50, TM 3-1040-254-13 (Apr 68).

Dear Mr. C. E. R.,
For now, the longer pockets are available only through local purchase (AR

to trim the new card to fit the 8x5-in pockets.


The title insert is placed over the record of demands card when it's placed

sandy and dusty, worn flocking lets the
sand and dirt get under the valve and
keeps the valve from seating right. That
