TAGGING WIRES AND LINES
Use Tag, Marker (WP 0120, Table 1, Item 20) to identify all electrical wires and hydraulic fluid 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.
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 an identifying number near the end of the wire, stamped on a
permanent metal tag. Compare the number to wire numbers on the appropriate electrical schematic.
Identify hydraulic fluid 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.
Identify and tag other parts as required by name and installed location.

LINES AND PORTS
To keep dirt from contaminating fluid systems when removing and installing hydraulic fluid lines, perform the
Clean fittings and surrounding area before disconnecting lines.
Cover lines with protective Cap Set, Protective, Dust and Moisture (WP 0120, Table 1, Item 2) or tape
lines and ports after disconnecting lines. When these are not available, use plastic bags and rubber
bands, Rag, Wiping (WP 0120, Table 1, Item 16), or other similar materials to prevent dirt from
Ensure new and used parts are clean before installing.
Wait to remove cover, cap, plug, or tape from lines and ports until just before installing lines.
END OF TASK
Dispose of contaminated drained fluids IAW the Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) of your unit.
