TM 10-3930-664-24 (4) USE  SPECIAL  CARE  WHEN  HANDLING  FUEL  OR  WORKING  ON  FUEL  SYSTEM.    Fuel  is  very flammable and can explode easily.  To avoid serious injury or death, observe the following precautions: (a) Keep fuel away from open flame or any spark (ignition source). (b) Keep at least a B-C fire extinguisher within easy reach when working with fuel or on a fuel system. (c) Do not work on fuel system when engine is hot; fuel can be ignited by a hot engine. (d) Clean fuel tank to purge any flammable liquid or vapors before welding,  grinding or using any heat producing device near the fuel tank. (e) Post signs that read "NO SMOKING WITHIN 50 FEET" when working with open fuel, fuel lines or fuel tanks. (5) VENTILATE.  Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless, deadly poisonous gas, which, when breathed, deprives   the   body   of   oxygen   and   causes   suffocation.   Carbon   monoxide   becomes   dangerously concentrated under conditions of inadequate ventilation.  To avoid serious injury or death, observe the following precautions: (a) Do not operate engine in an enclosed area unless it is adequately ventilated. (b) Do   not   idle   engine   for   long   periods   without   maintaining   adequate   ventilation   in   personnel compartments. (c) Be alert at all times during vehicle operation for exhaust odors and exposure symptoms.  If either are present, immediately ventilate personnel compartments. (6) USE CARE WHEN PERFORMING MAINTENANCE PROCEDURES ON ELECTRICAL COMPONENTS.  Always disconnect battery ground cable or power source before working on electrical components.    Discharge  capacitors  as  noted.    If  you  receive  an  electrical  shock,  get  medical  help immediately. (7) USE  CARE  WHEN  HANDLING  HEAVY  ITEMS.    Properly  support  heavy  items  before  removing.    To avoid serious injury or death, observe the following precautions: (a) Keep clear of suspended items. (b) Use sufficient number of personnel to maintain control of items. (c) Use a hoist or get help when lifting components that weigh more than 50 lbs (23 kg). (d) If an item begins to fall; let it fall. 1-34
