4.1.2 Materials and construction. To determine conformance to 3.2 through 3.3.1, inspection
and material certification records shall be maintained by the contractor. Records shall be subject
to review by the Government and shall include date, part, or characteristic identification,

a. First article inspection (see 4.4).
b. Quality conformance inspections (see 4.5).
1. Examination (see 4.5.2).
2. Acceptance tests (see 184.108.40.206).
3. Control tests (see 220.127.116.11).
4.3 Inspection conditions. All inspections and tests shall be conducted under the following
a. Hydraulic fluid shall conform to grade 10 of MIL-L-2104, and be maintained at a
temperature of 90 °F ± 20 °F (32 °C ± 11 °C), except when otherwise specified.
b. Cleanliness of fluid shall conform to ISO code 19/16 as specified in SAE J1165.
4.3.1 Test equipment. The following test equipment shall be available for performance of the
