These general maintenance instructions contain general shop practices and specific methods with which
you must be familiar to properly maintain the Enhanced Container Handling Unit (E-CHU). You should read
and understand these practices and methods before performing any Field Maintenance procedures.
Before beginning a task, find out how much repair, modification or replacement is needed to fix the
equipment. Sometimes the reason for equipment failure can be seen right away and complete teardown is
not necessary. Disassemble equipment only as far as necessary to repair or replace damaged parts.
In some cases, a part may be damaged during removal. If the part appears to be good, and other parts
behind it are not defective, leave it in place and continue with the procedure. Here are a few simple rules:
DO NOT remove dowel pins or studs unless loose, bent, broken, or otherwise damaged.
DO NOT remove bearings or bushings unless damaged. If you need to remove them to access parts
behind, carefully pull out bearings and bushings.
Replace all gaskets, lockwashers, locknuts, seals, sealing washers, sealing rings, cotter pins, and
