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 system
suction lines at (1) using hand pump per TM 9-4940-468-14.
Replace or repair components (auxiliary hydraulic system 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.
Start paving machine per TM 5-3895-373-10. 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 right auger/conveyor 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.
