The plugs look the same, but they dont take the same torque. Yes, thats poundinch! Youll find the step-by-step instructions in the -23 TMs for the M1A1 and TM 9-2350-388-13&P on IETM EM 0334 for the M1A2. Make sure you torque thedrain plug to 120-180 lb-in. M1-Series Tanks Keep vent hole free of dirt, oil and sand Torque check plug to 40-50 lb-ft and drain plug to 120-180 lb-in After checking the final drive oil levels during semiannual services, make sure you use the right torque when replacing the drain and check plugs. Using the -10 TMs PMCS charts, inspect the final drives weekly for oil leaks, especially at the drain and check plugs. Let your mechanic know about any leaks. if youre operating in a dusty or muddy environment, check the filler cap after every mission! While youre at it, check out the final drive filler cap. Dirt, oil and sand can clog the vent hole on each of the filler caps. When that happens, pressure can build until the final drive seal ruptures. DONT Neglect Final Drive PM! I think thats enough PM for this week! Hang on, Soldiers! Youre not done just yet! You didnt check the oil in the final drives. Youre not done until thats done! whoa! I sure dont wanna have to do that! Final drives that run out of oil will seize and lock up the transmission. The repairs will cost your unitbig bucks. Not to mention youll be explaining to your commander why you never checked your tanks final drives! Whats so important about checking that, Master Sergeant? Uh, whaddya mean? Man, am I ready for the weekend! A team effort from crewmen and mechanics can keep those final drives full of oil and keep your tank battle ready!

4 PS 791 OCT 18 5 PS 791 OCT 18 Sometimes the smallest thing can cause the biggest headaches, like the gasket under the top of your Bradleys transmission oil dipstick. The dipsticks outta sight so you likely dont give it a second thought. But you should, cause if that gasket is damaged or worn, the transmission could be in for some serious trouble. You have to turn the T-handle on the dipstick to lock it in place after checking the transmission oil. Turning the T-handle squeezes the gasket under the top of the dipstick to seal the opening. But dont turn the T-handle too tight. If the gasket is damaged or missing, you wont get a good seal. Water, dirt and sand can get past the seal and into the transmission, contaminating it. Replacing a transmission isnt cheap. And until its replaced, your Bradley is NMC and unit readiness suffers. So easy does it when turning the T-handle. And be sure to eyeball the dipstick seal after checking the oil level. If its cut, torn or missing, get a new dipstick with NSN 6680-01-180-5640.Dear Editor, One after-oper ations check for the Bradley that gets overlooked a lot is for the idler wheel nuts. Check those idler wheel nuts after every operation. Look for a shiny area under the nut where its rubbed against the wheel. Ask your mechanic to replace any loose nuts with NSN 5310-00-175-2710 and torque them to 170-200 lb-ft. Rough field operations c an loosen the idler wheel nuts. Once one nut loosens, it puts pressure on the other nuts until they loosen, too. Enough loose nuts can cause the wheel to wobble or even break loose from the vehicle! Its OK to tight en any loose nuts while youre in the field. Just be sure to mark which nuts were loose so your mechanic can replace them when you get back to the motor pool. CW2 Doug Byner Ft Carson, CO Editors note: These tips will keep your idler wheels working hard. Thanks, Chief!

6 PS 791 OCT 18 7 PS 791 OCT 18As long as the level is no more than one gallon low or one gallon high, your engine is good to go. Then do a cold check as soon as the mission allows, making sure the engine has been shut down for at least two hours. open the hull drains remove the hull access plates cover the engine deck with a tarp. Like it says in the -10 TM, if your vehicle will be parked for longer than two weeks: Sometimes operators check it too soon. Since the reading is low, they assume more oil should be added to bring the level up. instead, theyre adding too much oil. At the next startup, that excess engine oil is forced up through the crankcase ventilation pipe and into the turbocharger. The turbochargers extreme heat ignites the oil and flames shoot out the rightside exhaust stack.Thats dangerous! Dont Let Rain Sink Your Engine! Thatll prevent rain from filling the engine compartment and damaging components like the starter and wiring harness. M88A2 Recovery Vehicle Dont Let Rain Sink Your Engine!

Get a tan tarp with NSN 2540-01-5 7 8-4446 or a green tarp with NSN 2540-01-5 7 8-392 7 The tan tarp will set your unit back about $2,500 and the green tarp about $2,000. Thats a bargain compared to $500,000 for a new engine! if your M88A2 recovery vehicle will be sitting in the motor pool for a while, a few precautions will help protect the engine. you Dont lOok HAPpY. I neEd more Rain ProTECtion tHan this, pal! Theres only one time its OK to check the engine oil without waiting two hours after shutdown. thats during extended operations, when its not possible to shut down the engine for that long. its said that patience is a virtue. Thats especially true when it comes to checking the engine oil level on your M88A2 recovery vehicle. in that case, you can check the oil level after the engine has been idling for at least five minutes and is at normal operating temperature. Always wait at least two hours after shutdown before checking the engine oil level. That allows time for all the oil to drain back down from the engine. Whats the deal with him? S h h!

Follow your units SOP on where to drain the hullmost likely at the wash racksince the water is sure to be contaminated with fuel, oil, hydraulic fluid or other materials that are considered hazardous waste. Start with the three hull drain plugs, NSN 259000-299-0 7 39, on the bottom of your vehicletwo at the front and one at the back. Just open the plugs and watch your water woes go down the drain. Crewmen, if water gets in the hull of your M113-series vehicle, you might find yournext mission a very soggy affair! Rain and water from the wash rack can rust the fuel line and ramp pump fittings under the floor plates. Next thing you know, leaks are springing up everywhere and your vehicle is out of action. You might be able to use drip pans if the water level is low. Then dispose of the wastewater properly. Dear Editor, Of all the things Paladin cre ws need to check out during PMCS, one of the easiest to overlook is the cannon tubes travel lock friction linings. The friction linings cushion the tube when its in the travel lock, keeping metal from rubbing and scraping on metal. When linings are missing, a lot of damage gets done to the cannon tube. So check the linings and have your mechanic replace them if necessary. Thats a lot easier and cheaper than replacing a cannon tube. Mechanics, replac e the bottom lining with NSN 253001-354-0400 and the top lining with NSN 2530-01-3540401. Remove the old linings and adhesive residue with a wire brush. Apply new adhesive, NSN 8040-01-484-0416, to the replacement linings using an acid swabbing brush, NSN 7920-00-514-2417. Install the new linings and leave the travel lock open and unused for at least one hour so the adhesive can dry.

From that damage, a spot of rust appears, and now corrosion has a foothold.10 PS 791 OCT 18 11 PS 791 OCT 18 Tip #1 A properly prepped surface is clean, dry and smooth Before You Start Corrosion Check temperature and humidity before you start. Painting should only be done when temperatures are 40F to 95F and humidity below 85 percent. Check the expiration date of the primer and paint before opening. Paint expires one year from the manufactured date. Old paint makes a mess because it wont spread properly. A scratch here, a chip there and soon the Chemical Agent Resistant Coating (CARC) paint on your vehicle is damaged. Simple spot painting is easy to do in the field. Heres what you need to know to do it right. First, a few precautions. Wear protective clothing and Use a respirator when painting in confined spaces or spray painting. do they make those in my size? But repairing this damage with a little spot paint will stop the corrosion and prevent a more costly problem. itll also keep you safer by restoring the vehicles camouflage.

The topcoat is also available as an aerosol and in bottles with roller and brush applicators. Just like primer coats, dont make the topcoat too thick. Apply thin layers of primer using a brush or roller. Overly thick coats may crack, so check with a wet film thickness gage, NSN 5210-01-46 7 -1908. The primer and paint manufacturers will list the appropriate wet film thickness on their packaging. Protect the surface and wait 30 to 90 minutes before applying the topcoat. Tip #2 A quart of primer covers about 100 square feet Surfaces that get hotter than 350F require special heat-resistant paint! Priming Tip #3 Use wet lm thickness gage to check primer/paint Unless you use aerosol primer, youll have to mix the components using the ratios in the directions, then wait for the time specified. This allows the chemicals to reach the right stage for application. Tip #4 and Avoid painting hot metal in direct sunlight or when its windy. Water dispersible (WD) CARC is preferred due to environmental regulations. it can be used on top of solventbased CARC if necessary. But dont wait too long or youll get poor results. All paints and primers have a pot life once opened because they start to cure and thicken when exposed to air. Prepare the primer according to package directions. primer is a twocomponent epoxy. smart dog!

14 PS 791 OCT 18 15 PS 791 OCT 18 Sure, you want your ride to sparkle, even if its a drab Army green or tan tactical vehicle. But using tire shine products to get that sparkle isnt authorized. Thats because tire shine totally contradicts camouflage. What good is a vehicles camouflaged paint scheme if reflections from the shiny tires can be seen miles away?Even worse, tire shine products dont protect tires and may even degrade rubber. Certain tire shine products contain petrochemicals and silicones that can break down the rubber and the protective substances in the tires.These products are like the Grim Reaper to tires! Tips to Protect Tires 1. Always keep tires properly inated. 2. Drive vehicles regularly to exercise the tires, which helps prevent cracking due to aging. 3. To wash tires, use only mild soap and water with a soft bristle brush or cloth. 4. Never use chemical cleaners, especially anything petroleumbased, because they strip protective substances from tires and contribute to cracking. 5. Limit the use of pressure washers and avoid steam cleaners; they can also damage tires.

A good rule of thumb is to extend the backhoe boom and draw an arc in the dirt before you start digging. This arc line forms a half-circle thats almost 18 feet from the back of the vehicle. Put dirt from the trench on the highest side of the trench. Dont use the bucket to move the BHL on a side slope. Operate with the seat in the loader position and the seat belt fastened. Always engage the parking brake and move the shiftdirection control lever to neutral before operating the backhoe. Backhoe Loader Youll also want to be careful when swinging the backhoe bucket completely to the side. Using the bucket to push dirt causes unnecessary wear-andtear on the bucket and boom. Backhoe is used for scooping up dirt only Dont backfill a trench with the backhoe by swinging its bucket against the soil. The half-circle warns Soldiers to stay out of the danger area. WhEn Operating thE lOaDer on a hiLl, use the stabilizers to LEVel the vEhiCle. for safe operations, keep these points from WP 0012-8 throughWP 0012-10 in TM 5-2420231-10 (Feb 09) in mind.

Youll find this CAUTION spread throughoutTM 5-2420-231-10 (Feb 09). Over time, the rubber bushings wear out from exposure to the elements, normal wear-and-tear and vehicle vibration. When that happens, the back end of the vehicle starts to sway and it feels like theres some play in the suspension. If you see rust stains around the rubber bushings, or if the bushings look cracked, worn or dry-rotted, tell your mechanic. Hell get em replaced. CAUTION If the BHL has not been operated for several weeks or engine oil filter has been replaced, prime turbocharger with oil per priming turbocharger procedure below. Failure to comply may result in damage to the turbocharger. BUSHINGS BUSHED? Inspect bushing for wear or damage O perators, take a moment to squat down behind the Buffalos rear wheel assembly and take a close look at the rubber bushings inside the walking beam. Make sure you check this guys walking beam bushing before the days run! So make sure you prime mY turbocharger following the procedure in WP 0010-3. Youll be glad you did and so WiLl I! Operators, remember to prime your backhoe loader (BHL) before start up, especially if the vehicle has been sitting for several weeks. When oil doesnt get pumped into the impellers bearings, they can burn up. Then youre stuck while your loader goes to sustainment maintenance to replace a ruined turbocharger.

Note: handle cover not shown in above illustrations. The CRA was adapted from an existing Navy restraint system. it consists of a new quickrelease extension tether (QRET) that attaches to the crewmembers survival vest and a modification to the currently fielded PRT that attaches to the aircraft anchor point. The nEw PRT has A ParaChUte D-Ring in place of the quicK Ejector sNap. the QRET involved a complete redesign of the current tether. Testing included loads of feedback to improve the restraint system. One example is the addition of D-ring on the QRET. it provides an additional front connection for crew hoist operations. That provides an extra layer of protection through visual confirmation of tether attachment during the transition from aircraft to hoist hook attachment.

35 PS 791 Dear Editor, Here are a few ways M1135 NBCRV Stryker crews can strike out detecting problems: Run the chemical biological mass spectrometer (CBMS) on standby at least four hours per week. Turn it on as soon as you start Monday PMCS. If you dont run the CBMS, it takes much longer for the sensor to come online. But first open the probe post cover. If the covers closed, the probe gets very hot and the trapped heat causes damage. Its a good idea to put a sticker on the CBMS reminding crews to open the cover. here are some goOd tips from the ArMY cheMicaL schOol to KeEp yOur NBCRV strYker tracking dOwn CBRn thREaTs. Run CBMS at least four hours weekly, There are reports coming in that agents of SHIM are up to their old tricks again. s tupid henchmen Ignoring mischiEF? in my last movie, their anti-PM ray gun was nothing more than a worthless hunk of junk! Well, according to this, its working now and theyve hidden it aboard a space station in low orbit. Bondo, against my better judgment, Im sending you to take on SHIM! Apparently theyve finally gotten their anti-PM ray gun operational and theyre planning to use it soon! you want me to go to sPACE!? 791 34-35.indd All Pages 8/14/18 4:55 PM

PAGE 21

37 PS 791 OCT 18 Dont use the top of the sample introduction module (SIM) for storage. That can cause the CBMS exhaust hose to disconnect or kink. Exhaust has no way to get out of the vehicle. The same goes for circuit breaker 19 for the CBMS. The CBMS must be in the power off mode before you pull 19. Keep feet off all door seals. If you repeatedly step on seals, eventually they no longer seal. Then you have overpressure problems. SFC Jose Albino SFC Dwayne Bautista G Gabriel Gastelo Stanley Kuskco Ft Leonard Wood, MO Remember circuit breaker 3 on the suite power distribution panel (SPDP). After pushing in circuit breaker 3, you must turn on the operator display unit (ODU) within one minute or youll get faults. At shutdown of the joint service lightweight standoff chemical agent detector (JSLSCAD), you must first put the system in STANDBY and then pull out circuit breaker 3 before shutting down the vehicle power. Otherwise, youll get faults next time you operate. Divide PMCS into two days. And use four people. There is so much to check that its better to spend one day just checking out the Stryker and the next checking the NBC suite. A good PMCS really requires four people who know what theyre doing. Its also a good idea to download all 17 TMs to a laptop. That saves you the problem of dragging the paper TMs to the motor pool. Download them at: https://liw.logsa.army.mil/etmapp/#/etm/home Editors note: I suspect practically no decon units are aware of this. Thanks for pointing this out, David.

38 PS 791 OCT 18 Dear Editor, The principal reason the M7 f orward repair system (FRS) exists is to support units in the field. But to do that, it has to get to the field safely. Here are a few ways to help your FRS make the trip: Dont try to mount the FRS on anything but the PLS or the HEMLHS. It wont work, so dont even try. Its the PLS, HEM-LHS or nothing. Slow and easy when hooking up the FRSand use ground guides. The big danger is that the hook could swing out and crash right through the generator panel. Never pull the FRS at an angle as you may break the hook bar. Then youre facing a major repair or an expensive replacement. Dear Half-Mast, I have searched the M7 forward repair systems TM 9-4940-568-24P for the rubber door latch NSN with no luck. Is there one? G R.M. When unloading the FRS, roll it as little as possible. Moving the FRS any way but backward or forward can take chunks out of its two rollers. If the rollers get too much damage, the FRS will be extremely hard to move. That could make the FRS NMC until the rollers are replaced. When you back up the truck for unloading, try to get as close as possible to the spot youre aiming atwithin 10 feet is good. Check the rollers during PMCS. Theyre usually ignored even though its in the PMCS. If you see chunks missing or dry rot, tell your repairman. No use waiting to find out youve got bad rollers when youre ready to go to the field. G Jason Firestine SPC Detr en Gregory Ft Bragg, NC Editors note: M7 Forward Repair System Dragging FRS wears out rollers If you miss bar hook can slam right through generator wall Yes, there is, Sergeant. Order the door latch with NSN 5340-01560-8 7 68. theres no doOr latch in here! better ask half-mast then! Dont even think about that.

40 PS 791 OCT 18 41 PS 791 OCT 18 Dear Editor, Here are a few tips for getting the best out of the basic skill trainer (BST) for the anti-tank guided missile system (ATGM) Stryker. We developed these at the Stryker Master Gunners Course. First, make sur e the cables are in good working order with no missing or broken pins. That saves troubleshooting time. Do the daily readiness checks. That not only checks out the BST but helps gun ners train on what the various switches do. When training is done, make sure the gunner panel assembly, gunner display assembly and hand controller cables are properly reconnected. Hand tighten the ca bles so that the red line isnt visible. If the cables arent connected right, the ATGM malfunctions. If the system does malf unction, turn off the vehicle MAIN and AUX power and re-check the three cables connections. SFC Stephen Br own Ft Benning, GA Editors note: We agree these are the best BST tips. Thanks for sharing. Dear Editor, If you dont protect the M240B machine gun from the HIMARS rocket exhaust, soon youll need a new M240B. The exhaust can strip the finish right off the weapon. No finish means it has no protection against corrosion. If the receiver becomes too corroded, theres no choice but to junk the M240B. The best way to protect the M240B is to put it in the cab before you fire. Make sure the weapon is cleared before you put it in the cab. If the M240B is ever exposed to rocket exhaust, inspect it as soon as you return from the field. If the finish has been stripped off in spots, touch it up with solid film lubricant (SFL). NSN 9150-01-260-2534 brings a 16-oz aerosol can of SFL. You can also get a 1-qt can with NSN 9150-01-360-1908 and a 1-gal can with NSN 9150-00-1429361. These are non-aerosol and must be applied with a brush, which will produce a more even application than spraying SFL. Regardless of which kind you use, carefully follow the instructions on the can for best results. The exhaust can also affect the barrel nut, making it difficult to remove the barrel. So check that too when you return from the field.

Dont let weapons leave the arms room without a -10 TM and a DA Form 5988-E or 2404 for each weapon. Too often, the TMs never leave the arms room. That means Soldiers dont have the PMCS steps to make sure their weapons are in good shape or the troubleshooting procedures if their weapons fail in the field. Of course, some TMs wont make it back from the field. But theyre free and your pubs clerk can order more. Weapons that work are worth the effort. No unauthorized mods! Particularly with M16 rifles and M4 carbines, we are still seeing unauthorized modifications: grips, buttstocks, slings and flash suppressors, among other things. These mods arent authorized because, in many cases, they not only dont help but actually hurt performance. A weapon that stops firing in a firefight is a Soldiers worst nightmare. If that isnt enough reason to stay away from these mods, remember that once a weapon gets to us, we remove these unauthorized parts and you never see them again. 43 PS 791 OCT 18 Dear Editor, We see many weapons with problems here at the Logistics Readiness Center (LRC). Soldiers, armorers, and small arms repairmen can avoid many of those problems if they remember these points: Those TMs also tell how to properly clean and lube weapons before theyre turned in. Armorers should never accept any weapon that hasnt been cleaned or lubed. We see too many weapons that are so dirty they cant even be gaged. Eric Shove Danual Smith Ft Bragg, NC Small Arms rf The only time a weapon can be modified is if the Army has approved a modification work order (MWO). This is spelled out in AR 750-10, Army Modification Program (Aug 13). Soldiers can be held responsible for any damage resulting from unauthorized mods. Im not going until you get my -10 and a 5988-E or a 2404. Thats the only way I get a good PMCS and get my problems fixed. Sorry, youre NOT turning me in until you clean and lube me. I really need a good cleaning after all that firing. OK, you found a problem with my sight. Now you have to write it up or my sight will never get fixed! Youre not putting that thing on me!

We give technical and logistical support to ground support equipment maintainers and operators, both in garrison and during training at the combat training centers (CTCs). I want to remind your readers about the importance of making sure operators are properly licensed on all electrical power generating equipment from 0.5-kW and above, including commercial model power generation equipment like HDT (formerly DRASH) trailer-mounted support systems. This requirement is covered in Section 1, Chapter 7 of AR 600-55, The Army Driver and Operator Standardization Program (Selection, Training, Testing, and Licensing) (May 17). Too often we see environmental accidents, damage to costly electronics equipment and injuries when Soldiers arent properly licensed and trained in operating tactical power generation equipment. Just as with wheeled and tracked vehicles, commanders must ensure that their Soldiers are properly licensed on any equipment that their units are expected to use during their CTC rotation. Commanders and master driver trainers (MDTs) need to know the licensed requirements for power generation equipment in accordance with AR 600-55. This training must be annotated on the operators DA Form 348, Equipment Operators Qualification Record (Except Aircraft). Operator training can be provided by any qualified 91 Delta (tactical power generation specialist) or the NCOs assigned as MDTs. CECOM P/E LARs can also provide operator and sustainment maintenance training to the 91 Deltas. Sammy Harden Kaiserslautern, Germany Editors note: Thanks for a powerful reminder, Sir!
