MAINTENANCE OF THE HEMTT - OD1662 - LESSON 1/TASK 2
After the air reservoir has been removed from the vehicle, SGT Boyle
disassembles it and removes the air inlet check valves.
(figure 40), two tee assemblies (2), and two elbow assemblies (3) from
the reservoir (4). The two tee assemblies are being removed because
SGT Boyle suspects they are leaking.
After removal, he will clean
them and apply pipe thread sealing compound to them.
AIR RESERVOIR DISASSEMBLY.
When the valve, tees, and elbows have been removed from the reservoir
he removes the elbows (5 and 6) (figure 41 on the following page),
close nipple (7), and the reducer bushing (8) from the tee (9).
Now, SGT Boyle removes two connectors (10) (figure 42 on the following
page) and the elbow (11) from the tee (12). He then removes the two
close nipples (13) from the elbow.
