item 4 or 9) as applicable
a. Remove (Figure 3-12)
(1) Isolate strainer (1) i.e. close valves on each side.
(2) Remove two bolts (2) and nuts (3) securing lower half of pipe coupling clamp (4) and upper half of pipe
coupling damp (5) on one side of strainer.
(3) Remove pipe coupling damp halves and gasket (6).
(4) Drain residual fuel into appropriate container.
(5) Repeat procedures (2) and (3) for the opposite side of strainer.
Dry cleaning solvent used to clean parts is potentially dangerous to personnel
and property. Avoid repeated and prolonged skin contact. Do not use near open
flame or excessive heat. Flash point of solvent is 100°F-138°F (38°C-60°C).
(1) Clean strainer assembly (7) with dry cleaning solvent and rag dry thoroughly.
(2) Inspect strainer assembly (7) and replace if cracked, broken or otherwise damaged.
(1) Place gasket (6) over one hose end, make certain gasket is flush with end.
(2) Align strainer and hose couplings.
(3) When couplings are in proper alignment, slide gasket (6) over joint and center it in place.
(4) Position lower coupling damp half (4), then position upper coupling clamp half (5).
(5) Install two bolts (2) so that nuts (3) will be expossed on the upper coupling clamp (5).
(6) Hand-tighten nuts evenly, then using a wrench, tighten nuts evenly until the coupling faces just meet.
(7) Continue tightening nuts evenly until both bolts are secure.
