d. Fittings (figure 1-6). There are eleven different sizes and types of fitting assemblies in the fuel system to
connect hoses, valves and components together.
Hose Assemblies (figure 1-7). There are two types of hose assemblies used in the system. The suction
hose assemblies have reinforcing wires spiraled throughout their length to keep the hose from collapsing and to
act as bonding wires. The discharge hose assemblies are of a non-wire-reinforced type but have bonding wires
embedded in the entire length of the assembly.
f. N o z z l es (figure 1-8). Six nozzles provide a means of refueling vehicles or filling cans and drums. The
nozzles are fuel and oil servicing, nonautomatic shutoff for use with 3/4-inch or 1-inch hose.
Value Assemblies. There are two types of valve assemblies used in the fuel system. A gate valve
assembly is shown in figure 1-9, and a quick-acting valve assembly is shown in figure 1-10.
