8-4.1. BIAS TIRE, WHEEL, AND RUBBER RUNFLAT MAINTENANCE (Cont'd)
Never use tubes in wheel assemblies. Use of a tube defeats
built-in safety features, and could allow the wheel to come apart
under pressure, resulting in serious injury or death.
Use only replacement parts specified in TM 9-2320-280-24P.
Wheels assembled with components which do not meet
specifications could cause the assembly to separate under
pressure, resulting in serious injury or death.
Do not use runflat compressor if compressor strap is frayed or
damaged. Ensure runflat is free of grease and runflat
compressor strap is centered on runflat. Failure to do so could
cause injury to personnel.
Any oil on runflat compressor belt could result in personnel injury
or damage to equipment. Wipe any oil off from belt or handle.
Perform steps 1 and 2 when using runflat compressor P/N J39250.
Perform steps 3 and 4 when using runflat compressor P/N 528236.
Position runflat compressor (9) on runflat (8) so that runflat compressor hex drive (10) is facing up
and strap (11) is centered around runflat (8).
Compress runflat by rotating hex drive in either direction. Rotate
hex drive opposite to loosen.
Using runflat compressor (9), compress runflat (8).
Position runflat compressor (12) on an outer edge of runflat (8) with handle assembly (13) facing up
and strap (14) centered around runflat (8).
Compress runflat by rotating the handle assembly in a clockwise
direction. Rotate handle assembly counterclockwise to loosen.
Using runflat compressor (12), compress runflat (8).
