Preparation for towing:
1. If possible, tow with the rear wheels suspended. This will eliminate the need
for removal of prop shaft or axle shafts.
2. If the vehicle must be towed with the rear wheels on the ground, set the inter-
axle differential control to the UNLOCK position (see paragraph 2-12) and remove
the transmission-t&forward rear axle prop shaft at the universal joints. After
removal of the prop shaft, secure the prop shaft to the truck undercarriage.
3. If for some reason the prop shaft cannot be removed as described in step 2,
remove all four axle shafts from the two rear axle assemblies. Secure the axle
shafts to the vehicle so as to prevent damage.
Use of tow bar:
1. INSTALL MEDIUM DUTY TOWBAR (NSN 2540-00-378-2012) at pintle of tow-
ing vehicle and at towing eyes of truck tractor. MAKE SURE TOWING DEVICE
IS LONG ENOUGH TO allow for complete turning radius.
