General mechanics tool kit:
automotive (Appendix B, Item 1)
No NSN is assigned to edge trim. It will need to be ordered
directly from the vendor (2L480). The part number (SD1276) is
for 500-feet (150 m) bulk edging. When ordering, specify how
many feet are needed.
M996 and M996A1 vehicles require approximately 30 ft (19 m)
of trim; M997, M997A1, and M997A2 vehicles require
approximately 58 ft (18 m) of trim; and M1035, M1035A1, and
M1035A2 vehicles require approximately 59 ft (18 m) of trim.
Sealant, RTV (Appendix C, Item 3)
Remove edge trim (2) from track edge (3).
Clean any remaining adhesive from track edge (3).
Edge trim must be cut to alow for interferences along tracks.
Edge trim length must be shortened .50 in. (12.7 mm) at each
end to allow room for adhesive sealant application.
Measure length of skid track (1) and cut edge trim (2) to size.
To prevent drying of adhesive sealant before edge trim can be
installed, install edge trim to only one track at a time.
Apply thin bead of adhesive sealant along full length of litter skid track edge (3).
When installing edge trim sections on litter track edges, ensure
grip is positioned on outside of track edge to prevent edge trim
from loosening when litter is being used.
Install edge trim (2) on track edge (3).
Apply adhesive sealant to ends of edge trim (2) and smooth between track (1) and edge trim (2).
