MAINTENANCE AFTER FORDING -- CONTINUED
7. Fuel system.
Drain fuel tanks of any accumulated water.
8. Air Cleaners.
If water is found in the air cleaner, clean and dry the filter element (WP 0111 00).
The sudden cooling of the warm interior air upon submersion might cause condensation of moisture within
instruments. A period of exposure to warm air after fording should eliminate this condition.
10. Vision Devices.
If moisture has entered optical instruments, turn them in to unit maintenance for repair at the earliest opportunity.
Perform authorized lubrication services on the .50 caliber machine gun (TM 9--1005--213--10). Assemblies which
require disassembly for proper lubrication must be disassembled, dried and lubricated as soon as possible. Notify
unit maintenance personnel so that complete disassembly, cleaning and lubrication can be accomplished as soon
