STANDARD TOOL REQUIREMENTS
1. The following are general practices regarding the use of tools:
a. Always use the proper tool kit and tools for the procedure being performed.
b. Ensure that tools are clean and lubricated to reduce wear and to prevent rust.
Keep track of tools. Do not be careless with them.
d. Return tools to toolbox when finished with repair or maintenance.
e. Return toolboxes and tools to tool storage when not in use.
Inventory tools before and after each use.
2. Some maintenance tasks may require special or fabricated tools. The "Initial Setup" of the
procedure will specify any special or fabricated tools needed to perform that procedure. Use these
special tools only for the maintenance procedures for which they are designed or called out. If you
are unfamiliar with a required tool, see your supervisor.
TAGGING WIRES AND HOSES
1. Use marker tags (item 15, WP 0085) to identify all electrical wires, lines, and any other parts
which may be hard to identify or replace later. Fasten tags to parts during removal by wrapping wire
fasteners around or through parts and twisting ends together. Position tags to be out of the way
during cleaning, inspection, and repair. Mark tags with a pencil, pen, or marker.
2. Whenever possible, identify electrical wires with the number of the terminal or wire to which it
connects. If no markings can be found, tag both wires or wire and terminal, and use the same
identifying mark for both. If you cannot tag a wire because it must fit through a small hole or you
cannot reach it, write down the description of the wire and the point to which it connects or draw a
simple diagram on paper. Be sure to write down enough information so you will be able to properly
connect the wires during assembly. If you need to identify a loose wire, look for identifying numbers
near the end of the wire, stamped on a permanent metal tag. Compare this number to wire number
on the appropriate electrical schematic.
3. Identify lines when you are taking off more than one line at the same time. Mark tags with points to
which lines and hoses must be connected. If it is not obvious which end of a line goes where, tag
each end of the line.
4. Identify and tag other parts as required by name and installed location.
