c. Cleaning. Wash all parts, except seals and gaskets, in dry-cleaning solvent or mineral spirits paint thinner. Blow parts
dry with moisture-free compressed air; then immerse parts in clean oil OE-10, to prevent rusting.
d. Inspection and Repair.
Unless otherwise specified, parts are to be replaced if any
of the defects described below are detected.
(1) Inspect all threaded parts for burrs and damage to threads. Repair damaged threads with a thread chaser.
(2) Inspect all hex nuts, hex head screws, and socket head screws for rounded corners. Check screws for bending.
(3) Inspect rollers for freedom of movement.
e. Assembly. Assemble the main winch level winder assembly in reverse order of disassembly (fig. 3-15).
f. Adjustments. Refer to TM 9-2350-256-20 for adjustment of the main winch level winder assembly.
3-10. Assembly of Main Winch and Spade Assembly from Subassemblies.
a. Assemble the main winch and spade assembly in reverse order of disassembly (fig. 3-8). Lubricate winch in
accordance with LO 9-2350-256-12.
b. The link arm is indexed correctly (view H. 1, fig. 3-8) on the link arm shaft when the spade is in the stowed position
and the hole for the pivot pin for each spade cylinder is three and one-half inches below the bottom of the winch support.
3-10.1 Adjustment of Main Winch
Valves are adjusted by the vehicle manufacturer. Should verification need to be made, refer to para 2-20 for procedure.
SECTION III. REPAIR OF HYDRAULIC SUBPLATE ASSEMBLY
The hydraulic subplate assembly (figs. 1-15 and 1-16) is located in the crew compartment, mounted to the right of the
driver. Mounted to the subplate are the control valves for the hydraulic system. The spade control handle is also installed
on the subplate and connected by a mechanical linkage to the spade combination control valve.
3-12. Disassembly of Hydraulic Subplate
Assembly into Subassemblies
a. General. Figures 3-16 through 3-19, with accompanying legends, serve to identify all subassemblies and attaching
parts. The legends also provide an index to the step-by-step removal of each particular subassembly.
b. Disassembly Procedure. Disassemble the hydraulic subplate assembly into subassemblies as shown in figure 3-20.
