8-4. RADIAL TIRE, WHEEL, AND RUBBER RUNFLAT MAINTENANCE (Contd)
l Never use tubes in wheel assemblies. Use of a tube defeats built&~
safety features, and may allow the wheel to come apart under
pressure, resulting iu serious injury or death.
l Use only replacement parts specifred in TM 92320-387~24P for
radial tires. Never install radial tire components on eight< rims.
Wheels assembled with components not specSed for radial tires
could cause the assembly to separate under pressure, resulting in
serious injury or death.
l Do not use compressor strap ifit is f?ayed or damaged. Ensure
nmflat is ikee of grease and runflat compressor strap is centered
on run&k Failure to do so could cause injury to personneL
Perform steps 1 and 2 when using nmtlat compressor P/N 539250.
Perform steps 3 and 4 when using runflat compressor P/N 528236.
Position runflat compressor (8) on runflat (7) so that runflat compressor hex-drive (9) is facing up
and strap (10) is centered around runflat (7).
Compress nmflat by rotating hex-drive in either direction. Rotate
hex-drive opposite to loosen.
Using runflat compressor (81, compress nmflat (7).
Position runflat compressor (11) on an outer edge of runflat (7) with handle assembly (12) facing up
and strap (13) centered around runflat (7).
Compress runflat by rotating the handle assembly in a clockwise
direction. Rotate handle assembly counterclockwise to loosen.
Using nmflat compressor (111, compress nmflat (7).
