c. Isolate the Fault Using the Troubleshooting Procedure. After
you have identified the correct troubleshooting procedure, you must
isolate the fault.
Troubleshooting procedures. The TM 9-2350-264-20-1 depicts
the troubleshooting procedures as fault isolation flow
Each flow chart starts with a fault symptom you
can see, feel, or hear during operation of the tank and
then gives step-by-step instructions for finding and
correcting the fault for each symptom. The troubleshooting
procedure also uses illustrations to show the location of
test points and tank hardware. In addition, the procedure
also references Section IV, Supplementary Data (TM 9-2350-
264-20-1), which contains test equipment and tank data. To
troubleshoot the tank's hull systems use Simplified Test
Equipment -M1/FVS (STE) as Automated Test Equipment (ATE).
