CORRECTIVE ACTION Continued
Do not attempt to loosen or tighten hydraulic fittings or lines when system is pressurized. Severe injury
or death to personnel may result.
Visually inspect for any indication of oil leakage at spade cylinders, spade release cylinder, and
cylinder hydraulic connections. If oil leaks cannot be stopped by tightening fittings, notify Direct
Support Maintenance. If oil leaks are not present, go to step 4.
Visually inspect for signs of mechanical failure of spade. If signs of mechanical failure exist, notify
Direct Support Maintenance. If no signs of mechanical failure exist, go to step 5.
Visually inspect for failed or missing spade cylinder attaching pins. If any failed or missing pins exist,
notify Direct Support Maintenance. If no failed or missing pins exist, go to step 7.
Test equipment must be able to withstand 19502050 psi (13,44514,135 kPa). Improper test equipment
could burst during testing and cause personnel injury or death.
If spade still does not operate, troubleshoot main hydraulic system and/or auxiliary hydraulic system
Inspect for galled spade pivot pins. If any damaged pins exist, notify Direct Support Maintenance. If
no damaged pivot pins exist, go to step 8.
Inspect hydraulic lines and connections for leaks. Replace leaking hydraulic lines and tighten leaking
connections (see WP 0416 00). If leaks persist or spade continues to operate with difficulty, notify Di-
rect Support Maintenance. If no leaks exist and spade still creeps, notify Direct Support Maintenance.
