(a) Rust and Corrosion. Check pump body and frame for rust and corrosion, If any bare metal
or corrosion exists, clean, and apply a thin coat of oil.
(b) Bolts, Nuts, and Screws. Check them all for obvious looseness, missing, bent, or broken
condition. You cant try them all with a tool, but look for chipped paint, bare metal, or rust around bolt
heads. If you find a bolt, nut, or screw you think is loose, tighten it.
(c) Welds. Look for loose or chipped paint, rust, or gaps where parts are welded together.
(d) Electric Wires and Connectors, Look for cracked, frayed, or broken insulation, bare wires,
and loose or broken connectors. Tighten loose connectors.
(e) Hoses and Fluid Lines. Look for wear, damage, and leaks, and make sure clamps and fittings
are tight. Wet spots show leaks, but a stain around a fitting or connector can also mean a leak. If a leak
comes from a loose fitting or connector, tighten it.
g. When you check for operating condition, you look at the component to see if its serviceable.
4-1.2 CLEANING AGENTS.
DO NOT use diesel fuel, gasoline, or benzene (benzol) for cleaning.
DO NOT SMOKE when using cleaning solvent. NEVER USE IT NEAR AN OPEN
FLAME. Be sure there is a fire extinguisher nearby and use cleaning solvent only in
well-ventilated places. Flash point of solvent is 138°F (60°C).
USE CAUTION when using cleaning solvents. Cleaning solvents evaporate quickly
and can irritate exposed skin if solvents contact skin. In cold weather, contact of exposed
skin with cleaning solvents can cause frostbite.
Only use those authorized cleaning solvents or agents listed in Appendix D.
(1) When using water to clean the engine use water pressure and volume similar to a standard
househoId type water supply system (45-70psi, 6.5-10.2 kpa).
(a) After cleaning, allow engine to air dry. Do not use compressed air to dry engine. Do not
run engine to decrease drying time.
