be reached from the deck.
PROTECTING OPEN EQUIPMENT.When
removing a component from the hydraulic system, cap
or plug all openings to prevent entry of foreign matter.
Use tape to protect pipe threads.

of JBD installation on your ship.
components connected to hydraulic or water
lines, make sure the lines are depressurized.
Also, before repairing or removing any elec-
trical component, de-energize the electrical
circuit and attach an out-of-service tag.
HOSES, SEALS, AND O-RINGS.Hoses,
seals, and O-rings are selected on the basis of their
compatibility with the hydraulic fluid. Therefore,
replacement parts should be of the same material as
original parts. O-rings must be removed and replaced
with care to avoid damage to the O-ring and O-ring
sealing surfaces of the various parts. O-rings must be
free of cuts and not deformed. New O-rings must be
installed at every reassembly of components. Before
assembly, all O-rings must be lightly lubricated with
the system hydraulic fluid. Hoses are subject to wear
and require periodic replacement. When installing
hoses, take care to avoid unnecessary bends and
To restore the JBD system to operating condition
after a down period that required draining fluid,
perform preoperational inspection procedures given in
the applicable MRC.
For most repairs to the hydraulic system, only
portions of the system need be drained. Isolation valves
in each of the hydraulic cylinder lines and a shutoff
valve between the stack valve and the catapult pumps
permit isolation of portions of the JBD hydraulic
Most problems that occur on JBDs can be
systemsnamely, hydraulic, electrical, or water.
Information that allows operating and maintenance
personnel to locate the source of problems or
equipment failure is found in the JBD technical manual,
in the section covering trouble shooting.
The energy required to operate the JBD is supplied
by fluid under pressure; therefore, when operating with
precautions that apply.
All moving parts and equipment should be checked
for rags, tools, or other foreign material before
operating any of the machinery. Only qualified
operators shall be allowed to operate the JBDs.
The parking of aircraft on the deflector panel
should be avoided. The panels are designed to
withstand only the temporary weight of the aircraft
taxiing over them.
When you perform maintenance on the JBD,
comply with the safety precautions listed on the MRC.
Personnel and equipment shall be clear of the JBD
machinery enclosure and depressed deck when the
panels are being raised or lowered. This includes the
times when the panels are being operated during
overhaul tests and inspections.
