Ii no oil flows from hose, check hose for damage
or restriction and replace as necessary (see
paragraph 12-1). If oil flow cannot be restored,
go to step D. If oil flows, go to step C. If
mechanical transmission drive shaft does not
rotate, notify Direct Support Maintenance.
If no oil flows from hose after checking hoses
and replacing as necessary, this indicates a

damaged shaft coupling. Tighten bolts and/or
bolts and lockwashers (see
paragraph 12-1). Ii additional damage is present or
main hydraulic pump still does not operate, notify
Direct Support Maintenance. If main hydraulic
pump operates but is noisy or fails to develop
sufficient pressure and no additional shaft coupling
damage is present, go to step F.
