Note

Spacing from first ring to shoulder at each end of recoil mechanism may vary.

e. Inspect stacked springs (6) for cocked segments. No two outer springs should be touching. If springs are cocked or touching, lay recoil mechanism on flat surface and tap with plastic-face hammer until outer rings are aligned. If springs cannot be realigned, send recoil mechanism to Direct Support Maintenance for repair. Proceed to step 2.

f. Examine damper housing assembly (7) for cracks, stripped threads, or other damage. If any of these conditions are found, send recoil mechanism to Direct Support Maintenance for repair. Proceed to step 2.

g. Verify that recoil damper rod (1) position and fluid level are correct. Place recoil housing cap (3) over recoil damper rod (1) and install headed straight pin (5). The indicator rod (2) must protrude a minimum of 0.5 in. (12.7 mm) past the end of the damper housing assembly (7), but not more than 1.1 in. (27.2 mm). If measurement is incorrect, service damper reservoir.

2. INSPECT NEW RECOIL MECHANISM.

a. Visually inspect stacked springs (6) on new recoil mechanism (8) for cocked segments. If two or more outer springs are touching, lay new recoil mechanism on flat surface and tap with plastic-face hammer until springs are aligned. If springs cannot be realigned, send recoil mechanism to Direct Support Maintenance for repair.

b. Verify that recoil damper rod (1) position and fluid level are correct. Place recoil housing cap (3) over recoil damper rod (1) and install headed straight pin (5). The indicator rod (2) must protrude a minimum of 0.5 in. (12.7 mm) past the end of the damper housing assembly (7), but not more than 1.1 in. (27.2 mm). If measurement is incorrect, service damper reservoir.
