These general maintenance instructions contain general shop practices you must be familiar with to properly
maintain the TQG. You should read and understand these practices and methods before starting unit maintenance
tasks CHECKING UNPACKED EQUIPMENT.
Before starting any task, find out how much repair or replacement is needed to fix the equipment as described in
this manual. Sometimes the reason for equipment failure can be obvious and complete teardown is not necessary.
Disassemble equipment only as far as necessary to repair or replace damaged or broken parts.
All tags and forms attached to the equipment must be checked to learn the reason for removal from service. Also,
check Technical Bulletins (TB) for equipment changes and updates.
In some cases a part may be damaged by removal. If the part appears to be good and other parts behind it are not
defective, leave it on and continue the procedure.
Cleaning instructions will be the same for the majority of parts and components which make up the TQG.
The importance of cleaning must be thoroughly understood by maintenance personnel. Great care and effort are
required during cleaning. Dirt and foreign material are a constant threat to satisfactory maintenance. The following
should apply to all cleaning, inspection, repair, and assembly operations:
1. Clean all parts before inspection, after repair, and before assembly.
2. Hands should be kept free of any accumulation of grease which can collect dust, dirt, and grit.
3. After cleaning, all parts should be covered or wrapped to protect them from dust and dirt.
