4-1. COMMON TOOLS AND EQUIPMENT. For authorized common tools and equipment, refer to the Modified Table of
Organization and Equipment (MTOE) applicable to your unit.
4-2. SPECIAL TOOLS, TMDE, AND SUPPORT EQUIPMENT. No special tools are required for maintenance of the
equipment. Test, Measurement, and Diagnostic Equipment (TMDE) and Support Equipment include standard equipment
found in any maintenance shop.
4-3. REPAIR PARTS. Repair parts needed by unit maintenance of the FSSP are listed and illustrated in the Repair
Parts and Special Tools List (RPSTL) provided in Appendix F to this technical manual.
Section II. SERVICE UPON RECEIPT AND PREPARATION FOR MOVEMENT
4-4. SITING REQUIREMENTS. The FSSP should be assembled on a level area free of debris and large rocks. Special
care should be taken to insure that no hose assemblies will be placed on or near rocks or other objects that may have
sharp points or edges which may damage the hose assemblies when the FSSP is operated. Be sure that the site allows
for enough room to assemble the fuel system. When configured as shown in this technical manual the FSSP will take up
an area about 500 ft. x 400 ft.
4-5. SERVICE UPON RECEIPT. The following paragraphs contain the procedures for unloading, unpacking, and
general checking of the unpacked FSSP.
a. Unloading. Most of the components of the FSSP are shipped in one wooden crate. The only items which are not
shipped inside this crate are the two pump assemblies, the two filter/separators, and the fuel tanks. The crate may be
lifted by fork-lift, crane, or sling. To unload the fuel system, perform the following steps.
(1) Check all shipping crates for damage. Damaged crates indicate probable damage to equipment.
(2) Remove all blocking and die downs that may have been used to secure the crate onto the carrier.
(3) Use a forklift truck or other suitable material handling equipment to remove the crate from the carrier.
