32-4. FRAME INSPECTION AND REPAIR (Cont'd)
The objective of a repair procedure is to return the vehicle to a mission-safe (operationally and
mechanically) condition within a reasonable time and cost expenditure.
For ease of frame maintenance, use powertrain lift sling. (Refer to task b.)
b. Powertrain Lift Sling Installation
· To avoid possible injury to personnel and damage to equipment,
ensure shoulder bolts have a raised metal 10.9 material
strength indicator on the head of the bolts.
· Rope lift slings are awkward and potentially hazardous to
personnel and can cause damage to equipment. Replace rope
lift sling with powertrain lift sling.
Install powertrain lift sling (5) on cylinder heads (1) with four shoulder bolts (P/N 11502788) (6).
Install shackle (P/N NAS1042-14) (3) on powertrain lift sling (5) with pin (4) and cotter pin (2).
