STANDARD TOOL REQUIREMENTS
The following are general practices regarding the use of tools:
Always use the proper tool kit and tools for the procedure being performed.
Ensure that tools are clean and lubricated to reduce wear and prevent rust.
Keep track of tools. Do not be careless with them.
Return tools to toolbox when finished with repair or maintenance.
Return toolboxes and tools to tool storage when not in use.
Inventory tools before and after each use.
Some maintenance tasks may require special or fabricated tools. The "Initial Setup" of the procedure will
specify any special or fabricated tools needed to perform that procedure. Use these special tools only for the
maintenance procedures for which they are designed or called out. If you are unfamiliar with a required tool,
see your supervisor.

TAGGING WIRES AND HOSES
Use marker tags to identify all electrical wires, fuel, oil, coolant, and hydraulic lines, and any other parts which
may be hard to identify or replace later. Fasten tags to parts during removal by wrapping wire fasteners around
or through parts and twisting ends together. Position tags to be out of the way during cleaning, inspection, and
repair. Mark tags with a pencil, pen, or marker.
Whenever possible, identify electrical wires with the number of the terminal or wire to which it connects. If no
markings can be found, tag both wires or wire and terminal, and use the same identifying mark for both. If you
cannot tag a wire because it must fit through a small hole or you cannot reach it, write down the description of
the wire and the point to which it connects or draw a simple diagram on paper. Be sure to write down enough
information so you will be able to properly connect the wires during assembly. If you need to identify a loose
wire, look for identifying number near end of the wire, stamped on a permanent metal tag. Compare the number
to wire numbers on the appropriate electrical schematic.
Identify fuel, oil, coolant, and hydraulic lines when you are taking off more than one line at the same time. Mark
tags to point to which lines and hoses must be connected. If it is not obvious which end of a line goes where,
tag each end of the line.
Identify and tag other parts as required by name and installed location.
