3-4. General Maintenance Procedures.
Dry cleaning solvent, SD-2, used to clean parts is potentially dangerous to personnel and
property. Do not use near open flame or excessive heat Flash point of solvent is 138F
a. Cleanliness - Dirt, grease, oil, and debris only get in the way and may cover up a serious problem. Clean as you
work and as needed Use dry cleaning solvent (SD-2) on all metal surfaces
b. Bolts, nuts and screws - Check them all for obvious looseness, missing, bent or broken condition. You can't try
them all with a tool, of course, but look for chipped paint, bare metal, or rust around bolt heads. If you find one you
think is loose, tighten It, or report it to Organizational Maintenance
Welds - Look for loose or chipped paint, rust, or gaps where parts are welded together. If you find a bad weld,
report it to Organizational Maintenance
d. Electric wires and connectors - Look for cracked or broken insulation, bare wires, and loose or broken connectors.
Tighten loose connectors and make sure the wires are in good shape
e. Hydraulic lines and fittings - Look for wear, damage, leaks, and make sure clamps and fittings are tight. Wet spots
show leaks, of course, but a stain around a fitting or connector can mean a leak. If a leak comes from a loose
fitting or connector, tighten it. If something is broken or worn out, report it to Organizational Maintenance.
