STANDARD TOOL REQUIREMENTS
The following are general practices regarding the use of tools:
Always use the proper tool kit and tools for the procedure being performed.
Ensure that tools are clean and lubricated to reduce wear and to prevent rust.
Keep track of tools. Do not be careless with them.
Return tools to tool box when finished with repair or maintenance.
Return tool boxes and tools to tool storage when not in use.
Inventory tools before and after each use.
Some maintenance tasks may require special or fabricated tools. The "Initial Setup" of the procedure will
specify any special or fabricated tools needed to perform that procedure. Use these special tools only for the
maintenance procedures for which they are designed or called out. If you are unfamiliar with a required tool,
see your supervisor.

TAGGING WIRES AND HOSES
Use marker tags to identify all electrical wires, lines, and any other parts which may be hard to identify or
replace later. Fasten tags to parts during removal by wrapping wire fasteners around or through parts and
twisting ends together. Position tags to be out of the way during cleaning, inspection, and repair. Mark tags
with a pencil, pen, or marker.
Whenever possible, identify electrical wires with the number of the terminal or wire to which it connects. If no
markings can be found, tag both wires, or wire and terminal, and use the same identifying mark for both. If
you cannot tag a wire because it must fit through a small hole or you cannot reach it, write down the
description of the wire and the point to which it connects or draw a simple diagram on paper. Be sure to
write down enough information so you will be able to properly connect the wires during assembly. If you
need to identify a loose wire, look for identifying numbers near the end of the wire, stamped on a permanent
metal tag. Compare this number to wire numbers on the appropriate electrical schematic.
Identify lines when you are taking off more than one line at the same time. Mark tags with points to which
lines and hoses must be connected. If it is not obvious which end of a line goes where, tag each end
of the line.
Identify and tag other parts as required by name and installed location.
