When you do your PMCS, you will always need a rag or two. The following are checks common to
the entire 1145-2 Laser Transmitter, 1275 Laser Receiver, and Elevating Base and Tripod
Degreasing Solvent (MIL-PRF-680, Type II) is TOXIC and flammable. Wear protective
goggles and gloves, use only in a well-ventilated area, avoid contact with skin, eyes, and
clothes, and do not breathe vapors. Keep away from heat or flame. Never smoke when
using solvent; the flash point for degreasing solvent type II is 200 F (93 C). Failure to
comply may result in injury or death to personnel.
If personnel become dizzy while using cleaning solvent, immediately get fresh air and
medical help. If solvent contacts skin or clothes, flush with cold water. If solvent contacts
eyes, immediately flush eyes with water and get immediate medical attention. Do not
use diesel fuel, gasoline, or benzene (benzol) for cleaning.
Adhesives, solvents, and sealing compounds burn easily and give off vapors that are
harmful to the skin and clothing. To avoid injury or death, keep away from open fire
when using these materials, and use only in well-ventilated areas. If adhesives, solvents,
or sealing compounds contact the skin or clothing, wash immediately with soap and
water, and rinse thoroughly. Failure to comply may result in injury or death to personnel.
Keep It Clean. Dirt, grease, oil, and debris only get in the way and may cover up a serious
problem. Clean as you work. Use degreasing solvent (MIL-PRF-680, type II) on all metal surfaces.
Use soap and water when you clean rubber or plastic material.
Rust and Corrosion
. Check 1145-2 Laser Transmitter, 1275 Laser Receiver,
and Elevating Base
and Tripod system brackets for rust and corrosion. When any bare metal or corrosion exists, clean
and apply a coat of paint. Report bare metal or corrosion to your supervisor.
Bolts, Nuts, and Screws. Check all bolts, nuts, and screws for obvious looseness, missing, bent, or
broken condition. You can't check them all with a tool, but look for chipped paint, bare metal, or
rust around bolt heads. When you find a bolt, nut, or screw you think is loose, tighten it or report it
to your supervisor.
Welds. Look for loose or chipped paint, rust, or gaps where parts are welded together. When you
find a bad weld, report it to your supervisor.
Electric Wires and Connectors. Look for cracked, frayed, or broken insulation, bare wires, and
loose or broken connectors. Tighten loose connectors. Report any damaged wires to your supervisor.
Hydraulic Lines and Fittings. Look for wear, damage, and leaks; ensure clamps and fittings are
tight. Stains around a fitting or connector can mean a leak. If a leak comes from a loose fitting or
connector, tighten it. If something is broken or worn out, report it to Unit Maintenance.
When you check operating conditions, look to see if component is serviceable.
Local conditions of extreme heat, dust, cold, or wetness dictate that service intervals shall be shortened.
