USE OF METRIC UNITS.
components and requires metric common and special
tools. Therefore, metric units are used when a metric
part is referenced. U.S.
standard units are used when a U.S. standard part is
referenced. Equipment gauges are dual scale U.S.
standard and metric common. All references to
equipment data and operating parameters appear both in
U.S. standard and metric units.
