GENERAL MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS--Continued
Compressed air used for drying or cleaning purposes must
not exceed 30 psi (207 kPa). Wear protective clothing (goggles
and gloves) and use caution to avoid injury to personnel.
Refer to TM 9-214 for more information on the inspection,
care, and maintenance of bearings.
Clean ball and roller bearings by placing in a wire basket and immersing in a container of fresh
cleaning compound. Agitate bearings in compound to remove all traces of old lubricant.
After cleaning bearings, dry them with clean compressed air. Take care to prevent spinning the
bearings when using compressed air jet.
Dip cleaned bearings in clean engine oil and immediately wrap them in a lint-free cloth to protect
them from dust and other foreign matter.
