wire brushes and sharp tools should never
be used on surfaces where finish is impor-

required, in valve body bores to prevent
valves from sticking. Clean thoroughly to
remove compound after use.
(4) A soft wire (brass or copper)
may be used to clean oil passages. Always
flush such passages thoroughly after clean-
(5) If steam cleaning is used, dry
the cleaned parts immediately with com-
pressed air and apply a film of oil to pre-
vent rusting. Never use lye or caustics
which will corrode or etch metal surfaces.

wrapped until they are to be installed.
Soak bearings which have been in service
in dry cleaning solvent or mineral spirits
to loosen deposits of dirt. Do not spin the
bearings during cleaning or drying. After
cleaning, turn the bearings by hand and
note any evidence of grit. Reclean them
if grit is present.
Refer to TM 9-214 for
further information on cleaning bearings.

(1) Inspect all castings and forg-
ings for breaks, cracks and wear or scoring
that would impair serviceability. Remove
nicks and small surface irregularities with
crocus cloth or a soft stone.

defects with crocus cloth or a soft honing
stone. Replace any parts in which defects
that cannot be corrected will impair the
operation of the transmission.
(4) Inspect threaded openings for
damaged threads. Chase damaged threads
with the correct size used tap.
Note. A new tap will cut oversize.
If threads are stripped, discard the
part unless it can be satisfactorily
repaired by installing an insert.
