18-25. HYDRAULIC HOSES, TUBES, AND FITTINGS REPLACEMENT/REPAIR (CONT)
Inspect all fittings for damaged threads.
Inspect hoses for cuts, cracks, breaks and fraying that could cause leaks.
Some hydraulic hoses can be repaired by substituting threaded-type fittings for original fittings that are
damaged or otherwise unusable. Replacement fitting information is provided in TM 10-3930-673-24.
If thread-type fittings are not available for a particular hose, that hose must be replaced.
Ensure all fittings are tightened to specification.
Install preformed packings, fittings, and hoses (1 through 365).
If drained, refill hydraulic reservoir to proper level (Para 5-9).
Start engine (TM 10-3930-673-10) and operate all hydraulic systems in which hoses and/or fittings have
been replaced. Check for leaks.
Correct any leaks by tightening connection or part replacement before resuming vehicle operation.
