SAFETY CHECKS AND PRECAUTIONS - TM-5-4210-230-14P-1_84
TM 5-4210-230-14&P-1 SAFETY CHECKS AND PRECAUTIONS Every effort has been made to assure that your new vehicle has been engineered and manufactured to provide continued trouble free service.  Materials selected to manufacture the many parts which make up the vehicle undergo exhaustive test and research to make certain that acceptable, safe service life is realized. There  is,  however,  an  area  in  which  the  vehicle  owner  plays  an  important  part  and  which  determines  in  a  large  measure  the extent  of  continued,  safe,  trouble  free  service  to  be  realized  from  the  owner's  investment  in  the  vehicle.    This  has  to  do  with  the responsibility  which  rests  with  the  owner  in  seeing  that  the  vehicle  receives  proper  care  through  following  the  periodic  lubricating procedures and arranging the regular inspection intervals to assure that parts that normally deteriorate are replaced or repaired.  In addition, ask your IH Dealer to make an inspection of your vehicle at least once a year. A good, general vehicle check by an experienced serviceman will give you assurance that your vehicle is still in a safe condition. The lubrication intervals present a good opportunity to inspect the vehicle, and we suggest that the following points be checked at these intervals. AXLE-FRONT Maintaining  proper  front  axle  alignment  specifications  is  of  great  importance  and  should  only  be  performed  by  a  qualified mechanic. Check to assure that axle mounting U-bolt nuts, attaching or mounting bolts and nuts are securely tightened. Regularly check front axle for damaged, binding or worn parts, and adequate lubrication. AXLE-REAR Check to assure that axle mounting U-bolt nuts, attaching or mounting bolts and nuts are securely tightened. Regularly check rear axle for damaged, binding or worn parts. BRAKE-SYSTEM Brake Lining Adjustment:  Always maintain proper lining adjustment. Brake Lining Inspection:  Every 12,000 miles or 12 months, whichever occurs first, have brake linings inspected for wear.  Where vehicles are used in severe service or in considerable stop-and-go service, more frequent inspections should be scheduled. On a periodic basis or at least once a year inspect entire brake system for: 1. Brake controls (refer to Rubber Parts). 2. Condition of drums, brake chambers and slack adjusters. 3. Air leaks. 4. Hose or pipes for rust, damage, deterioration. 5. Operation of service and parking brakes. IMPORTANT Some parts, such as air brake chamber diaphragm, should be inspected once a year or every 80,000 km (50,000 mi.) and replaced if considered unserviceable for further use. CAB Defrosters:  Operate defroster controls to determine if sufficient air is being directed against windshield. Door Latches:  Check latches for positive closing, latching and locking. Glass:  Check for cracked, broken, scratched or dirty glass including rear view mirrors. Seats:  Be sure manually operated seats are firmly engaged to avoid forward or rearward movement when starting or stopping. Seat Belts:  Check the entire seat belt assembly for wear and proper operation.  Make certain anchor mountings are tight. In  addition  to  the  above,  check  condition  of  cab  mounting  brackets,  sheet  metal,  rubber  mountings  and  safety  prop  when equipped. CLUTCH Maintain specified clutch pedal adjustment. Regularly inspect clutch control linkage for tightness. 1
