2-8. GENERAL MAINTENANCE PROCEDURES
Dry Cleaning Solvent P-D-680 is TOXIC and flammable. Wear protective goggles and gloves;
use only in well-ventilated area; avoid contact with skin, eyes, and clothes, and do not breathe
vapors. Keep away from open flame. Never smoke when using solvent; the flashpoint for Type
I Dry Cleaning Solvent is 100°F (38°C) and for Type II is 130°F (50°C). Failure to comply may
result in serious injury or death to personnel.
If personnel become dizzy while using Dry Cleaning Solvent, immediately get fresh air and
medical help. If solvent contacts skin or clothes, flush with cold water. If solvent contacts
eyes, immediately flush eyes with water and get immediate medical attention. Failure to comply
may result in injury to personnel.
a. Cleanliness. Dirt, grease, oil, and debris only get in the way and may cover up a serious problem. Use Dry
Cleaning Solvent (Item 71, Appendix D) on metal surfaces and soapy water on rubber.
b. Bolts, Nuts, and Screws. Check bolts, nuts, and screws for obvious looseness, missing, bent, or broken
condition and replace as necessary. If they cannot be checked with a tool, look for chipped paint, bare metal, or rust
around bolt heads.
c. Welds. Look for loose or chipped paint, rust, or gaps where parts are welded together. If a bad weld is found,
notify your supervisor.
d. Electric Wires and Connectors.
Look for cracked or broken insulation, bare wires, and loose or broken
connectors. Tighten loose connectors and ensure wires are in good shape.
e. Fluid Lines and Fittings. Look for wear, damage, and leaks and make sure clamps and fittings are tight. Wet
spots show leaks, but a stain around a fitting or connector can mean a leak. If connector or fitting is loose, tighten it.
If something is broken or worn out, repair or replace per applicable procedure.
