c. Inspection of Installed Parts. Perform inspection with the item in its normal installed position/condition,
considering accessibility and visibility of the item being inspected. The purpose of the inspection is to determine if the
item is damaged or incomplete to the extent that it should be replaced/repaired.
Inspect for loose, missing, or damaged parts.
Inspect parts for dents, holes, worn spots, scratches, marred finish, cracks, rust and corrosion.
Look for loose or chipped paint, rust or gaps where parts are welded together. If a bad weld is found,
notify the supervisor.
Drycleaning Solvent (P-D-680) is TOXIC and flammable. Wear protective goggles, face
shield, and gloves; use only in a well-ventilated area; avoid contact with skin, eyes, and
clothes, and do not breathe vapors. Keep away from heat or flame. Never smoke when
using solvent; the flashpoint for Type II Drycleaning Solvent is 140 degrees F (60 degrees C)
and Type III Drycleaning Solvent is 200 degrees F (93 degrees C). Failure to do so may
result in injury or death to personnel.
If personnel become dizzy while using cleaning solvent, immediately get fresh air and
medical help. If solvent contacts skin or clothes, flush with cold water. If solvent contacts
eyes, immediately flush eyes with water and get immediate medical attention.
