MAINTENANCE ADVISORY FOR NEW HELMET

Word from OIF and OEF is that some soldiers are not wearing the new advanced combat helmet (ACH) correctly. If the helmet is worn wrong or fits poorly, it may not protect soldiers from fragmentation or ballistic threats, Maintenance Advisory Message (MAM) 04-001-013 advises commanders to review fit and wear standards in TM 10-8470-204-10 and inspect their soldiers, The TM is found at https://www.logsa.army.mil/etms/data/A/080445.pdf

A video showing the correct fitting procedures and the TM are available on AKO and the PEOSoldier website at https://PEOSOLDIER.army.mil

OIL PRESERVED DECKING

Constant exposure to the elements dries, cracks and splinters the wood decking on semitrailers. Prevent that damage by brushing boiled linseed oil on the decking as needed. NSN 8010-00-152-3245 Gets 1 gallon of oil.

M40, M42 Mask Demil Code Changes

The demilitarization code for the M40- and M42-series mask facepieces (NSN 4240-01-415-4517, 4240-01-415-4518, and 4240-01-416-0430) has changed from D (total destruction) to F (contact the item manager).

Unserviceable mask facepieces will be sent to Pine Bluff Arsenal Depot to support the mask rebuild program. Look for a supply advisory message soon. The derail code for the facepiece will also be changed on the AMDF.

Oops! ARS Corrections

In the story on the adapter rail system (ARS) for the M16A4 rifle and M4/M4A1 carbine on Pages 14-16 in PS 623 (Oct 04), we used “mount” and “install” incorrectly. The M203A2 grenade launcher is mounted to the M16A4 or M4/M4A1, not the ARS. The M5 barrel stop is installed in the handguard cap. The M203A2 quick release bracket is installed, as is the ARS on the M16A4 or M4/M4A1. But sighting and aiming devices are mounted on the ARS.

M109/M992A2 Current Regulator

Generator Shield NSN

Use NSN 4140-01-350-0839 to get a shield for the HMMWV’s 60-amp generator. The guard keeps debris and foreign objects from getting inside the generator’s cooling fan area. You’ll need two hose clamps, NSN 4730-00-908-6294, to hold the shields in place. Installation instructions come with the shield. If you have any questions about the generator or the shield, contact Team Power at batteries@tacom.army.mil
