8-4.1. RADIAL TIRE, WHEEL, AND RUBBER RUNFLAT MAINTENANCE (24-STUD) (Cont'd)
· Never use tubes in wheel assemblies. Use of a tube defeats built-
in safety features, and may allow the wheel to come apart under
pressure, resulting in serious injury or death.
· Use only replacement parts specified in TM 9-2320-387-24P for
radial tires. Never install radial tire components on eight-bolt
rims. Wheels assembled with components not specified for radial
tires could cause the assembly to separate under pressure,
resulting in serious injury or death.
· Do not use compressor strap if it is frayed or damaged. Ensure
runflat is free of grease and runflat compressor strap is centered
on runflat. Failure to do so could cause injury to personnel.
Perform steps 1 and 2 when using runflat compressor P/N
J39250. Perform steps 3 and 4 when using runflat compressor
Position runflat compressor (8) on runflat (7) so that runflat compressor hex-drive (9) is facing up
and strap (10) is centered around runflat (7).
Compress runflat by rotating hex-drive in either direction. Rotate
hex-drive opposite to loosen.
Using runflat compressor (8), compress runflat (7).
Position runflat compressor (11) on an outer edge of runflat (7) with handle assembly (12) facing up
and strap (13) centered around runflat (7).
Compress runflat by rotating the handle assembly in a clockwise
direction. Rotate handle assembly counterclockwise to loosen.
Using runflat compressor (11), compress runflat (7).
