STANDARD TOOL REQUIREMENTS
1. The following are general practices regarding the use of tools:
a. Always use proper tool kit and tools for procedure being performed.
b. Ensure tools are clean and lubricated to reduce wear and to prevent rust.
Keep track of tools. Do not be careless with them.
d. Return tools to toolbox when finished with repair or maintenance.
e. Return toolboxes and tools to tool storage when not in use.
Inventory tools before and after each use.
2. Some maintenance tasks may require special or fabricated tools. The "Initial Setup" of the procedure will
specify any special or fabricated tools needed to perform that procedure. Use these special tools only for the
maintenance procedures for which they are designed or called out. If you are unfamiliar with a required tool,
see your supervisor.
END OF TASK
1. When tightening fasteners, use torque value as specified in Torque Limits (WP 0371).
2. If a unique torque value is required, it will be provided in a procedural step in the task.
3. If a unique torque pattern is required, it will be provided in a procedural step in the task.
END OF TASK
1. Use marker tags to identify all electrical wires, fuel, oil, coolant, and hydraulic lines, as well as any other parts
that may be hard to identify or replace later. Fasten tags to parts during removal by wrapping wire fasteners
around or through parts and twisting ends together. Position tags to be out of the way during cleaning,
inspection, and repair. Mark tags with a pencil, pen, or marker.
2. Whenever possible, identify electrical wires with the number of the terminal or wire to which they connect. If no
markings can be found, tag both wires, or wire and terminal, and use the same identifying mark for both. If you
cannot tag a wire because it must fit through a small hole or you cannot reach it, write down a description of
the wire and the point to which it connects, or draw a simple diagram on paper. Be sure to write down enough
information so that you can properly connect the wires during assembly. If you need to identify a loose wire,
look for an identifying number near the end of the wire, stamped on a permanent metal tag. Compare that
number to wire numbers on the appropriate electrical schematic.
3. Identify fuel, oil, coolant, and hydraulic lines when you are taking off more than one line at the same time. Mark
tags with points to which lines and hoses must be connected. If it is not obvious which end of a line goes
where, tag each end of the line.
4. Identify and tag other parts by name and installed location as required.
