Bilge Pump, Motor, and Support Assembly
A centrifugal-type bilge pump with motor and support assembly is installed on the hull floor in the winch compartment. The
pump is used to remove any water which may enter the compartment during fording. The discharge of the pump is directed
through the bilge pump hose to an outlet adapter, mounted onto the right side of the personnel compartment. A multiple purpose
(wash vehicle, etc.), dacron rubber-lined hose with nozzle can be attached to the outlet adapter. A toggle switch and indicator
lamp for operating the pump are located at the right of the driver's seat on the accessories panel. A relay, which is activated
by the toggle switch, controls the pump motor. A circuit breaker mounted under the floor plates and on the same plate as the
relay provides overload protection for the pump circuit. The switch and relay coil circuit is protected by a circuit breaker in the
Crew Fan Air Duct Housing and Boom Boot Drains
A rubber seal between two metal plates fits into and seals the crew fan air duct housing. Shutoff hose clamps are used to control
water flow from the crew fan air duct housing and boom boot drains.
Fire Extinguisher System
Seven rubber fire extinguisher nozzle caps protect the extinguisher system from the entrance of water and contaminants. These
caps are not sealed and would be blown off from the nozzles upon release of the system.
Sealing and Miscellaneous Materials
Nonhygroscopic tape is applied around the transmission oil filler neck, and to excessively large open areas if required.
Fording sealer is used as a sealing compound around exterior stowage compartment doors, main winch cable opening, removable
hull front cover, and all mounting surfaces of the vehicle and deep water fording components.
Electrical insulating and sealing compound is used to seal all exposed electrical connections except battery terminals.
Asbestos sealing compound is used to seal battery terminals.
Wiping cloths are supplied to be used in cleaning and drying the vehicle preparatory to sealing.
Spanner wrenches are provided for installing multipurpose hose.
