8-5.1. RADIAL TIRE, WHEEL, AND RUBBER RUNFLAT MAINTENANCE (M1123 AND
A2 VEHICLES) (Contd)
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 for radial
tires. Never install radial tire components on eight bolt rims. Wheels
assembled with components not specified for radial tires could cause the
assembly to separate under pressure, resulting in serious injury or death.
Radial and bias tires should not be mixed on the same vehicle. Injury to
personnel or damage to equipment may result.
Do not use 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 or handle 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.
Make sure gears and pivot points on runflat compressor (13) or (10) have a light coat of oil to ensure
ease of operation and prevent from rust.
Position runflat compressor (10) on runflat (9) so that runflat compressor hex drive (11) is facing up
and strap (12) is centered around runflat (9).
Compress runflat by rotating hex drive in either direction. Rotate hex
drive opposite to loosen.
Using runflat compressor (10), compress runflat (9).
Position runflat compressor (13) on an outer edge of runflat (9) with handle assembly (14) facing up
and strap (15) centered around runflat (9).
Compress runflat by rotating the handle assembly in a clockwise
direction. Rotate handle assembly counterclockwise to loosen.
Using runflat compressor (13), compress runflat (9).
