REPLACEMENT OF ONE PIECE CONTROL ASSEMBLY WITH TWO PIECE - Continued
1. Remove one piece cable assembly using procedure given in Section V page 23 steps 1 thru 6 and 9 thru 22.
2. Attach 15 foot of safety wire to shift lever end of control assembly located inside driver's station. Make sure wire is
wrapped several times around end of control assembly.
Once safety wire is attached to control assembly, mechanic in driver's compartment should
position himself in turret near bulkhead.
3. Mechanic in engine compartment grasps control assembly with both hands and pulls toward rear of tank, while
mechanic inside turret makes sure that control assembly and wire feed through hole in bulkhead and tube. Insure
that retainer slides freely off control assembly and free end of wire is secured to a wrench or unmovable object
when free-end is visible beyond ammunition racks. The wrench will not allow free-end of wire to pass through
4. When control assembly is clear of tube located behind fuel tank, mechanic in engine compartment should
disconnect wire from control assembly and remove control assembly from tank.
Make sure wire is secured to a wrench or other object so that wire will remain in tube for
installation of new front control assembly.
