(1) Visually  check  for  any  of  the  following  problems:  broken  welds,  loose  fasteners,  damaged  threads, bending, cracking, deformity, nicks, cuts, scratches, gouges, distortion, blockage or inoperability. (2) Check for evidence of excessive or uneven wear. (3) Inspect all new parts for defects before installation. (4) Routinely check hoses, lines and fittings for leaks. d. General Repair Practices.  The following are general repair practices to follow. To prevent further damage to components, take corrective action promptly.  Be sure to follow all warnings, cautions and notes. (1) Discard broken and non-reusable parts. (2) Paint exposed  metal  to  protect  from  rust.    Do  not  paint  electrical  harnesses,  wiring,  hoses  or  finished machine parts. (3) Perform all lubrication and PMCS on schedule. 1-37
