Since the system does not appear to be
clear, SSG Williams disconnects the tubing from the atomizer and
checks for restrictions.
Since no restrictions were found, this

The atomizer is replaced in accordance with the procedures contained

Though the troubleshooting procedure for this

important as exhaust fumes can kill the occupants
of the vehicle and/or cause an accident.
The first thing that SGT Rude does is read DA Form 2404 and talk to
the operator of the vehicle.
After this has been done, SGT Rude
reads through the troubleshooting procedures to determine the tools
necessary for the job. Since no tools are required, SGT Rude goes to
the vehicle and configures it according to the procedures outlined in
paragraphs 3a(l) thru 3a(5) on page 34 of this task. Once this has
been done, SGT Rude is ready to begin troubleshooting.
As a first step, SGT Rude is directed to inspect the exhaust
manifold, pipes, and connections for leaks, cracks, or damage. Upon
inspection SGT Rude found that the entire exhaust system on the
vehicle needed to be replaced since it had rusted through.
procedures for replacing the exhaust system components can be found
in chapter 3, section V of TM 9-2320-272-20-1.
