TEST OR INSPECTION
AUXILIARY HYDRAULIC SUPPLY TO VIBRATION AND CYLINDER CIRCUITS FAULTY.
Hydraulic oil can be moderately flammable and can be an irritant to skin, eyes, and
respiratory system. Avoid prolonged exposure. Eye protection and rubber gloves must
be worn when working with hydraulic oil.
Open right access door per TM 5-3895-373-10. Remove right access cover per TM 5-3895-373-10.
With paving machine off per TM 5-3895-373-10, check right hand auxiliary hydraulic pump suction
at (1) using hand pump per TM 9-4940-468-14.
Replace or repair components (auxiliary hydraulic pump suction hoses, lines, and fittings per
paragraph 2.54, hydraulic reservoir components per paragraph 2.53) as necessary.
The following test requires use of a hydraulic system tester. Install tester in-line at flow test point
indicated by each individual test per TM 9-4940-468-14. Make sure ratings of all fittings and hoses used
are adequate for maximum pressures and flows being tested.
Install hydraulic system tester at port (2) for flow test per TM 9-4940-468-14. Check flow at right
hand auxiliary hydraulic pump discharge port (2). Measure flow rate at 2475 +25 psi (17 066 ±172
kPa) with engine at 2640 +40 rpm.
If flow rate is less than 5 gpm (19 l/min), replace/repair right hand auxiliary hydraulic pump per
If flow rate is at least 5 gpm (19 l/min), replace valve and cylinder flow divider per paragraph 2.55
and repair per paragraph 2.49.
Disconnect hydraulic system tester per TM 9-4940-468-14. Reconnect all hydraulic lines. Install
right access cover per TM 5-3895-373-10. Close right access door per TM 5-3895-373-10.
