This task covers:
General Mechanics Automotive Tool Kit
Sealer (Item 29 or 30, Appendix D)
SC 5180 -90-CL-N26
Electronic Equipment Shelter Tool Kit TK-144/G
Replace. (figure 4-9)
The shelter door has four hinge assemblies. This procedure is typical for all four. Do not
remove more than one hinge at a time.
Remove five bolts (1 and 2), five self-locking nuts (3) and five flat washers (4) and take hinge assembly
(5) and shim(s) (6) off door.
Coat both sides of shim(s) (6) with sealer.
Position hinge assembly (5) and shim(s) (6) on door and fasten with two long bolts (2), three short bolts
(1), five flat washers (4) and five self-locking nuts (3).
Check latch torque. Latch torque should be 15 foot-pounds (max) without RFI/EMI gasket, or 30
foot-pounds (max) with RFI/EMI gasket. Add or subtract shims (6) to achieve proper latch torque. Latch
torque may also be adjusted by varying number of latch keeper shims (para 3-15).
Lubricate as required (para 3-1).
