TM 5-4210-230-14&P-1 VEHICLE OPERATION IMPORTANT Vehicles   with   manual   transmissions   should not   be   towed   even   short   distances   without suspending    rear    wheels    or    removing    the propeller shaft. TOWING VEHICLE WITH REAR WHEELS SUSPENDED Whenever  possible,  it  is  preferable  to  tow  a  disabled vehicle  from  the  rear  by  raising  the  rear  of  the  chassis  and towing   it   backwards   which   will   eliminate   the   preparations required when the rear drive wheels are on the ground.  When towing a vehicle with rear of the chassis suspended, the front wheels must be locked in the straight ahead position. Vehicles  with  manual  shift  must  have  at  least  one  (1) pint of transmission lubricant drained from the case.  This will prevent    transmission    lubricant    from    entering    the    clutch housing and lubricant saturating the clutch discs.  Make sure that  the  transmission  lubricant  is  replaced  before  the  vehicle is put back into service. Towing the vehicle with the front wheels on the ground also eliminates possible damage to the front bumper. IMPORTANT Full  floating  axles  are  axles  where  the  axle shafts may be removed without disturbing the wheel  and  hub  assemblies.    On  chassis  with full floating axles, remove the axle shafts from all axles to be in contact with the road surface during  the  towing  operation.    The  wheel  hub ends must be covered to prevent loss of axle lubricant and entrance of contaminants. If axle shafts are not removed, removal of rear propellar shafts will be required. In   the   event   the   chassis   is   equipped   with tandem  axle  and  the  vehicle  is  to  be  towed from  the  front,  the  forward  rear  axle  may  be raised  to  clear  the  road  surface  and  secured to  the  frame  by  chains  or  "U"  bolts,  allowing only rear axle to contact road surface and axle shafts removed from rear axle assembly, Use extreme   care   in   securing   the   chains   or   "U" bolts to avoid possible damage of brake lines, hoses or other components. TRANSFER CASE This  control  "ENGAGES"  or  "DISENGAGES"  the  front axle  and  selects  the  "HIGH"  or  "LOW"  speed  range  of  the transfer case. CAUTION When parking your 4 x 4 vehicle the following procedures must be followed: Failure    to    follow    these    procedures,    could result  in  an  unattended  vehicle  moving,  thus resulting in personal injury or property damage. AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION 1. Transfer case must be in gear. 2. Transmission must be in "PARK" MANUAL TRANSMISSION 1. Transfer case must be in gear. 2. Transmission must be in gear. It  is  also  recommended  the  parking  brake  be  "Set"  at this time. SHIFTING (Transfer Case) The  transfer  case  transmits  power  to  the  front  driving axle for operation over rough terrain, steep grades or slippery surfaces (i.e;, mud, gravel, snow) where improved traction is required. Low  gear  of  the  transfer  case  (if  so  equipped)  should be   engaged   only   when   the   vehicle   is   stopped   or   moving forward slowly.  Low gear is intended for off-highway use only, where additional gear reduction is occasionally required to pull heavy loads. IMPORTANT The   vehicle   must   not   be   operated   with   the transfer  case  in  low  gear  on  dry,  flat,  hard surface roads. Operating under these conditions may damage the power train. 10
