GENERAL MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS - CONTINUED
TAGGING INSTRUCTIONS - CONTINUED
Identify fuel, oil, coolant, and hydraulic lines when you are taking off more than one line at the same time. Mark tags
with points to which lines and hoses must be connected. If it is not obvious which end of a line goes where, tag each end
of the line.
Identify and tag other parts as required by name and installed location.
LINES AND PORTS
To keep dirt from contaminating fluid systems when removing and installing fuel, oil, coolant, and hydraulic lines, per-
form the following steps:
Clean fittings and surrounding area before disconnecting lines.
Cover, cap, plug, or tape lines and ports after disconnecting lines. When these are not available, use plastic bags
and rubber bands, clean rags, duct tape, or other similar materials to prevent dirt from entering system.
Ensure that new and used parts are clean before installing.
Replace all removed tiedown straps.
Wait to remove cover, cap, plug, or tape from lines and ports until just before installing lines.
When servicing this machine, performing maintenance, or disposing of materials such as engine coolant,
hydraulic fluid, lubricants, battery acids, or batteries, consult your unit/local hazardous waste disposal center
or safety office for local regulatory guidance. If further information is needed, please contact The Army
Environmental Hotline at 1-800-872-3845.
Dispose of contaminated drained fluids in accordance with the Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) of your unit.
