Section VII. PREPARATION FOR STORAGE OR SHIPMENT
GENERAL. This section provides instructions for preparing the pumping assembly for short term and long term
storage or shipment.
ADMINISTRATIVE STORAGE . Administrative storage shall be in accordance with AR 750-1.
SHORT TERM STORAGE (30 days or less).
When the pumping assembly is taken out of service, take special precautions to protect the
interior and exterior of the unit from rust accumulation and corrosion.
The following instructions apply when the pumping assembly is to be placed in storage/idle for a period of not more than
30 days. Additional or supplementary measures may be directed to meet current or anticipated conditions such as ex-
tremes of temperature; exposure to dust, sand, or debris; or salt air such as in a beachhead location. These instructions
do not apply to temporary shutdowns to relocate the pumping assembly.
Severe burns, illness, or death could occur if diesel fuel oil is not handled carefully.
Use in a well-ventilated area away from open flame, arcing equipment, ignition
sources, heaters, or excessive heat. Be certain that fuel lines and connections are
secure. Do not inhale vapor. Do not overfill fuel tank. Engines must be turned off and
cooled before refueling. Use proper refueling procedures and equipment to avoid
spillage. Do not run engines near open fuel containers. DO NOT SMOKE.
Fill fuel tank with VV-F-800 diesel fuel. Connect pumping assembly to a water supply. Operate engine for 2
minutes at idle and no load.
Do not drain the fuel system after the 2-minute run. Remove water supply after this run.
Prepare suction and discharge nozzle adapters for storage as follows.
The removal of the suction and discharge nozzle adapters are identical. Only the discharge nozzle
removal is presented
