Inspect the link assembly, coupling in accordance with WP 0005 00, using the procedures in Table 1.
Do not over tighten the self-locking nuts of the three-point coupling link
assembly so that the cam will not rotate freely. This may result in a
delay or failure of the force transfer and deployment of the recovery
parachutes resulting in loss of equipment.
1. The following procedures shall be used to tighten all three self-locking nuts on the three point coupling
Using a 1 7/16 and 1 5/8-inch open-end wrench, tighten all three (3) self-locking nuts whereby the
bottom of the nut must make contact with the side plate and then back off one-half turn so the cam
and spools rotate freely.
Before engaging the three point coupling link, assembly into the latch assembly, check to see that
the cam and spools between the side plates have sufficient slack and are always free to rotate as
Check the proper engagement of the cam with the open latch assembly. The cam must fit without
interference and seat properly into the latch assembly when the latch is manually relocked and the
dot and arrows are aligned.
