Remove oil seals by pressing or prying out, being careful not to damage casting or adapter bore.
Always install new seal in bore using proper seal installation tool.
Painting. Upon installation, restored parts must be painted in accordance with TB 43-0209.
instructions on proper lubrication. The following are some general practices to remember:
Use correct lubricant.
Clean all fittings and area around fill and drain points before lubrication.
Lubricate clean disassembled and new parts to prevent rust.
STANDARD TOOL REQUIREMENTS
The following are general practices regarding the use of tools:
Always use proper tool kit and tools for procedure being performed.
Ensure tools are clean and lubricated to reduce wear and to prevent rust.
Keep track of tools. Do not be careless with them.
Return tools to toolbox when finished with repair or maintenance.
Return toolboxes and tools to tool storage when not in use.
Inventory tools before and after each use.
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.
When tightening fasteners, use torque value as specified in Torque Limits (WP 0234 00).
If a unique torque value is required, it will be provided in a procedural step in the task.
Use marker tags to identify all electrical wires, fuel, oil, coolant, and hydraulic lines, and any other parts which 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.
Whenever possible, identify electrical wires with the number of 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 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 for you to 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 the number to wire numbers on the appropriate electrical schematic.
