DISASSEMBLY AND ASSEMBLY INSTRUCTIONS
Keep major components together whenever possible and practical.
Tag hoses, electrical wires, cables, and harnesses to identify them and aid during installation.
Keep related parts together for identification purposes.
Temporarily install attaching hardware such as screws, bolts, washers, and nuts to prevent loss.
Only disassemble to the point of the problem.
Ensure that parts are clean and lubricated before assembly.
Before welding, the following components must be disconnected: DDEC ECU, Transmission ECU, ABS
ECU, CWS ECU, and batteries. If welding on a trailer, it must be uncoupled from tractor truck. Failure to
follow this caution may damage electronic components.
Repair castings, forgings, and machined parts using the following instructions:
Repair minor cracked castings or forgings in accordance with TM 9-237.
Repair minor damage to machined surfaces with an abrasive cloth dipped in detergent (Item 11, WP 0235 00).
Replace any deeply nicked machined surface that could affect the assembly operation.
Repair minor damage to threaded cap screw holes with thread tap of same size to prevent cutting oversize.
After repair, thoroughly clean all parts to prevent dirt, metal chips or other foreign material from entering any working
Refer to TM 9-2320-302-10 and to Unit PMCS (WP 0021 00) for detailed, illustrated instructions on proper
