2-17 HYDRAULIC TROUBLESHOOTING-Continued
A Attempt operation of the hoist winch, main winch,
and spade. If hoist winch, main winch, and spade
do not operate, troubleshoot main hydraulic system
and/or auxiliary hydraulic system. If hoist winch,
main winch, and spade operate go to step B.
B Visually inspect for damage. If damage exists and
boom cannot be repaired, replace hoisting boom (see
paragraph 11-11). If signs of damage exist and can
be repaired, notify Direct Support Maintenance. If
no signs of damage exist, go to step C.
C Visually inspect for any indication of class III oil leak
at stayline cylinder and actuating cylinder hydraulic
connections. If class III oil leaks are present, tighten
fittings (see paragraph 12-1). If no leaks are present,
go to step D.
Do not attempt to loosen or tighten
hydraulic fittings or lines when system is
pressurized. Severe injury or death to
personnel may result.

Test equipment must be able to withstand
1950-2050 psi (13,445-14,135 kPa),
Improper test equipment could burst during
testing and cause personnel injury or death.
F Test for boom combination control valve failure.
Perform STE/ICE-R Test No. 51 with 0-10,000 psig
pressure transducer (Appendix C, item 51) installed
in pilot-operated relief and unloading valve gage
port. With the main hydraulic system operating,
actuate boom combination control valve lever. If
