Clamp journal end of number one rod in a vise and insert a steel bar
through the wrist pin end. Twist the rod between 5° and 10° out of
alignment about the. longitudinal axis of the rod.
Using the rod press, lay number two rod on rockers with journal end
closer to anvil and bend rod from 2° to 4° out of alignment in
relation to the centerline of the pin end and journal end diameters.
Turn rod over and, near the pin end, bend the same amount. This will
provide the offset condition.
Twist number three rod as in b above, then twist near center of the
rod and apply one bend as in c above. This will combine bend and
Offset number four rod as in c above. Twist as in b above. This will
combine offset and twist.
Align rods in press visually. After completing visual alignment, use connecting
rod alignment indicator to determine when exact point of alignment has been
reached. Repeat on all rods until all four rods have been aligned. Failure of the
press to correct the deformations shall be cause for rejection (see 3.2 and
4.7 Packaging inspection. Packaging inspection shall be conducted before
and after packaging to determine compliance with the requirements of Section 5.
5.1 Disassembly. The press may be disassembled to the extent necessary to
assure that all surfaces requiring a preservative are accessible for processing,
to assure minimum cube for packing, and to permit reassembly without special
skills or tools. Disassembly, when applicable, shall be as specified in
5.2 Preservation. Preservation shall be Level A or Industrial. Unless
otherwise specified (see 6.2.1), Industrial preservation shall be provided. When
military (Level A) preservation is required, it shall be so specified in the
5.2.1 Level A.
126.96.36.199 Cleaning and drying. The press shall be cleaned and dried in
accordance with the applicable procedures of MIL-P-116.
188.8.131.52 Preservative application. Preservatives specified herein and
procedures for application shall conform to MIL-P-116. Immediately after cleaning
and drying, open the oil cup, remove pressure gage(s), and fog interior of press
with type P-10, grade 10 preservative oil. Exercise and extend ram piston and
hydraulic rod and coat exposed surfaces with type P-2 preservative. All exterior
noncritical surfaces, which have not been painted or plated, shall be coated with
type P-1 or type P-19 preservative.
184.108.40.206 Unit packaging. Each press shall be packaged in accordance with
method I of MIL-P-116. The hydraulic rod and ram piston shall be secured in a
closed position. Surfaces preserved with type P-2 preservative shall be covered
with barrier material conforming to MIL-B-121, type I, grade A, class 2. The
pressure gage(s) shall be wrapped with cushioning material conforming to PPP-C-
843, type II, class B. Secure barrier and cushioning material in place with tape
conforming to PPP-T-60, type optional. The oil cap and pressure gage openings
