TM 5-4210-230-14&P-1 SAFETY CHECKS AND PRECAUTIONS CAUTION Pay  particular  attention  to  short  lengths  of  rubber  hose  used  anywhere  in  the  piping  system  to  relieve  stress  and vibration. 10. NO  WORK  WHATEVER  IS  TO  BE  PERFORMED  ON  THE  FUEL  TANKS  OF  LIQUIFIED  PETROLEUM  GAS FUELED VEHICLES.  Any necessary work should be performed by qualified concerns who normally service such containers and are familiar with local regulations and inspection and test after any repairs are made. 11. Vehicles of this type which have been involved in an accident should not be brought into the shop for repair until the shop foreman has checked the fuel tanks and fuel systems for possible leaks. 12. It is important to remember that all LPG systems are pressurized.  Make certain the tank valves are tightly closed and all fuel exhausted from the lines before starting any repair work on the fuel system. PROPELLER SHAFT At the regular lubrication interval, check universal joints for wear. Should propeller shaft vibrations occur, stop the vehicle immediately to avoid possible hazardous consequences or damage to other components. RUBBER PARTS Rubber  parts  are  subject  to  deterioration.    Brake  components  should  be  considered  for  periodic  replacement  once  each  year based  upon  the  severity  and  length  of  service.    Usually  careful  inspection  by  experienced  mechanics  will  disclose  the  need  for attention. SPRINGS Maintain specified torque on spring U-bolt nuts. Periodically check condition of spring leaves for evidence of fatigue, bending or breakage. STEERING Be  alert  to  any  change  (feel)  in  steering  when  driving.    This  change  or  feel  would  include  increased  steering  efforts,  unusual sounds when turning, excessive wheel play or pulling to either side. Check  tie  rod  and  drag  link  end  clamp  bolts.    They  must  be  tight.    Ask  your  service  mechanic  to  examine  the  steering mechanism.  Minor adjustments could head off further problems. Check power steering system for leaks or hose chaffing.  Repair at once. Maintain proper steering gear and power steering pump lubricant levels. Regularly inspect all steering linkage, particularly for body-to-chassis clearance. IMPORTANT If any of the above are evident, contact qualified steering personnel at once. SUSPENSIONS Check condition of suspension mounting brackets or bushings. Suspension alignment must be maintained at all times. TOW HOOKS Front  and  rear  tow  hooks  should  be  inspected  for  damage  or  a  loose  mounting.    This  is  of  great  importance,  particularly  on vehicles used in operations where the tow hooks are frequently required. TRANSMISSION Check fluid level and shift linkage for proper operation. IMPORTANT If vehicle starts in any gear other than "Neutral" or "Park" the safety switch is malfunctioning. 5
