TM 5-4320-275-13 & P
BAIL - An arched, hooplike handle, as of a pail.
BRINELLED - A deformation of a bearing by an impact.
CAPACITY - The volume, amount, or quantity that can be held or contained. The fluid capacity of the hydraulic system
is 2.5 gallons, which means that it holds that much fluid when it is filled to the proper level.
CARBON MONOXIDE - A poisonous gas that is made while a fuel is burning, especially if there is not quite enough air.
The gas is colorless, odorless, and tasteless, but it can cause illness or death. See the warnings on the Warning page at
front of manual.
COMBUSTION - A chemical change, especially oxidation, accompanied by the production of heat and light.
combustion engine functions by burning a fuel to produce heat, i.e., energy.
COMPONENT - A part or a combination of parts which together accomplish a function.
COMPRESSED AIR- Air that is under pressure. When the compressed air in a hose or pipe is allowed to escape (such
as when you use an air gun), the air moves very fast and is used to blow away dirt and chips for cleaning.
CONDENSATION - A liquid formed from a vapor. Moisture carried in warm air will condense when it reaches a cold
area, such as the surface of a fuel tank in sub-zero weather.
CONTAMINATED - Made impure by contact or mixture. Exhaust fumes contain a poisonous gas which will contaminate
the air in the nearby area.
CORROSION - A gradual wearing away caused by chemical action. Metals exposed to salt water are likely to corrode.
COUPLING - A dev ice which connects a power source to a reducer and/or to a load; it will compensate for some
misalignment and usually prevents metal to metal contact.
DEBRIS - The scattered remains of something broken or destroyed.
DEFICIENCY - An incompleteness; lacking an essential element.
DETERIORATE - A worsening of condition usually as a result of age or hostile env ironment, as
opposed to mechanical damage.
DIAPHRAGM - An elastic material used as a boundary to seal and separate two areas. A pump diaphragm allows the
volume of the pump bowl to be varied thus producing the pumping action.
DIMINISH - To make or become smaller or less important.
DISTORTION - The bending, twisting, or any other dynamic change of a surface.
DRAW BAR - A single piece handle used for lifting heavy objects.
DRY ROT - Rotting due to lack of air circulating around area.
