All components and parts must be carefully checked to determine the following:
1. If they are serviceable for reuse.
2. If they can be repaired.
3. If they must be replaced.
Drilled and Tapped (Threaded) Holes
1. Inspect for wear, distortion, cracks, or any other damage in or around holes.
2. Inspect threaded areas for wear, distortion (stretching), or evidence of cross-threading.
3. Mark all damaged areas for repair or replacement.
