inspection of belts and condition to
determine if the belts require
removal for cleaning and deglazing.
If deglazing appears necessary,
remove the lock belt guard.
Dry cleaning solvent, P-D-680, used to clean parts is potentially dangerous to
personnel and property. Use in a well ventilated area as the fumes are dangerous
if inhaled. Do not use near open flame or excessive heat. Flash point of solvent is
100 F. - 138 F. (38C. 59 C.).
b. Use a cloth dampened in dry cleaning
solvent, P-D-680, to remove oil and dust film.
If the belts appear to have been saturated,
and the heat has glazed the surfaces of the
Vee's , proceed as follows:
c. Use a medium grade of grit paper (not
emery cloth) and rough up the surfaces with
strokes of uneven direction.
d. Wipe off all grit particles. When surfaces
have been deglazed, install the belts on
