(29) Install the vertical exhaust pipe, Item 2.9, using U-bolts, 3043T32, through brackets welded
to upright in Figure 4.7. (Figure 23A & 23B). Reference TM 55-8115-202-14, Paragraph 4-61,
Figure 4-13, to better align and center the vertical exhaust pipe over the end of the horizontal
exhaust pipe on the generator, it may be necessary to add shim spacers to the lower U-bolt,
between the exhaust pipe and the exhaust bracket. The extra slide mount brackets, Item 1.6, may
be used as a spacer. The holes in the bracket may be opened to facilitate a good fit. If shop lock
washers can be found, it is recommended they be added to the U-bolt attachment.
The vertical exhaust stack, upper (attached to the container) and horizontal (from TQG), should
be aligned concentrically, meaning the center of the upper vertical tube should be centered to the
horizontal exhaust tube to prevent water from running down the top tube and into the lower
exhaust tube. For example, the upper exhaust should extend beyond the horizontal TQG exhaust
port along the entire circumference. The horizontal TQG stack shall not extend outside of the
area, in which the upper stack covers. If it does, the potential for rainwater to enter the generator
exists. Slight adjustments can be made on the TQG exhaust and the vertical stack tube to better
align the two if there seems to be a misalignment. The gap between the bottom of the vertical
exhaust stack tube and the top of the generator exhaust tube should be no more than 1/4 inch.
