Adhesive remover is flammable and the vapors can be explosive. Repeated or prolonged
skin contact or inhalation of vapors can be toxic. Use in a well-ventilated area, wear
gloves, and keep away from sparks or flame.
Repairs are limited to broken or cracked welds, straightening of bent or dented sheet
metal, and replacement of handles, gaskets, insulation, and riv-nuts as well as some small
sheet metal parts by drilling out rivets and insulation of replacement parts.
1. Disassemble the unit as necessary and make repairs as indicated.
2. Minor dents and bent edges can be straightened using common sheet metal repair procedures.
3. Should touch up or refinishing be necessary, refer to TM 43-0139.
Housing replacement requires total unit disassembly. Normally, if the unit is damaged to
this extent, the whole unit should be replaced.
If housing replacement is attempted, see the individual installation instructions of
components for reinstallation of items removed.
