(3) Pour any liquid remaining in the extinguisher into a small container which can be used to refill the
(4) If the fluid is clean and contains no sediment, it may be reused.
(5) Use a small funnel to refill the extinguisher. Pour the fluid into the extinguisher until the fluid level is about
one quarter of an inch from the top of the extinguisher body.
Caution: Do not allow any water to get into the fluid or the extinguisher during the filling operation. Carbon
tetrachloride mixed with water will cause serious corrosion.
(6) Replace the filler cap (5, fig. 13) and tighten it with a wrench. Do not tighten the filler cap beyond a
37. Lifting and Towing Attachments
a. Location. The road roller has two front lifting hooks (2, fig. 1) and four rear lifting hooks (5, fig. 2). The front
lifting hooks are attached to the front housing and bolted to the longitudinal member of the frame. The rear mounting
hooks are mounted on the rear housing, above the steering yoke. The towing bracket (11, fig. 1) is welded to the front
cross-member of the frame.
b. Use. The lifting hooks are used for lifting the road roller to a carrier or flatcar or tying the roller down while it is
being transported. The towing bracket is used for towing the road roller from one location to another. It may also be used
as a tiedown attachment if necessary.
Section V. OPERATION UNDER UNUSUAL CONDITIONS
38. Operation in Extreme Cold (Below 0° F.)
a. Lubrication. Lubricate the road roller according to LO 5-1185.
b. Preventive Maintenance Services. Perform preventive maintenance services (paras. 51-54).
c. Cooling System. Check the antifreeze solution in the cooling system with an hydrometer. Add antifreeze if
necessary. Check the cooling system and connections for leaks. Cover the radiator in extremely cold temperatures.
When filling the radiator with antifreeze solution, refer to table I, showing the amount of antifreeze required for the
protection at the temperatures indicated.
d. Fuel System. Moisture condenses and freezes in extremely cold temperatures, and ice particles may obstruct the
flow of fuel through the fuel system. Keep the fuel tank full to avoid accumulation of moisture. Clean sediment and
accumulated moisture from the fuel filter frequently. See that the fuel-line connections are tight.
