Use the information in the following paragraphs to help you identify problems at any time. Use the following
information to help identify potential problems before and during checks and services.
Dry cleaning solvent used to clean parts Is potentially dangerous to
personnel and property. Clean parts In a well-ventilated area. Avoid
inhalation of solvent fumes. Wear goggles and rubber gloves to pro-
tect eyes and skin. Wash exposed skin thoroughly. Do not smoke or
use near open flame or excessive heat. Failure to observe this warn-
ing can cause severe personal injury or death.
Keep cleaning solvents, gasoline and lubricants away from rubber or
soft plastic parts. They will deteriorate material.
Keep it clean. Dirt, grease, and oil get in the way and may cover up a serious problem. Use dry cleaning
solvent to clean metal surfaces.
Use soap and water to clean rubber or plastic parts and material.
Check all bolts, nuts, and screws to make sure they are not loose, missing, bent, or broken. Do not try
to check them with a tool, but look for chipped paint, bare metal, or rust around bolt heads. If you find
one loose, report it to the next higher level of maintenance.
Inspect welds for loose or chipped paint, rust, or gaps where parts are welded together. If a broken weld
is found, report it to the next higher level of maintenance.
Inspect electrical wires, connectors, terminals, and receptacles for cracked or broken insulation, bare
wires, and loose or broken connectors. Tighten loose connectors. Examine terminals and receptacles for
serviceability. If deficiencies are found, report them to the next higher level of maintenance.
Inspect hoses and fluid lines. Look for wear, damage, and leaks. Make sure that clamps and fittings are
tight. Wet spots and stains around a fitting or connector can mean a leak. If a leak comes from a loose
connector, or if something is broken or worn out, report it to the next higher level of maintenance.
