Fuel is very flammable and can explode easily. To avoid
serious injury or death, keep fuel away from open flame or any
spark (ignition source). Keep a B-C fire extinguisher within
reach when performing fuel tank repair.
Eye and hand protection must be worn at all times when
applying FTSS Patch Kit. Failure to do so may result in injury
1. Place the bolt head of the FRP assembly
into the magnetic socket.
2. Position the FRP assembly within 1/2-inch
(12.7 mm) of the leak by "stabbing" the
patch assembly directly into the FTSS
3. Using the socket wrench handle and
extension, tighten the FRP assembly screw
4. Observe the fuel flow. Leakage should begin to slow and noticeably stop within a few seconds.
If the leak continues, remove the patch, and relocate to a different position.
5. After leak has stopped, wipe any excess fuel from repaired area with a clean rag. Clean
repaired area with alcohol wipes. Apply adhesive to the base of the FRP assembly to
permanently seal the patch in place.
6. Using knife, remove any excess adhesive, as required.
7. Report all fuel tanker vessel damage to immediate supervisor for proper repair.
