INSTALLATION OF SETTING-UP INSTRUCTIONS.
General. Power for operation of the shop set may come from either
of two Sources : The shop set engine driving the dynamotor-welder
or an external power source of 240 volts, 3phase, 50 or 60cycle
power driving the dynamotor-welder. The external power source, if
available and practical, will require settinigup procedures (para.
25b). Thc settinig-up procedures for the shop set
to use either
the two power sources will vary according to the amount of canvas
erected and other factors, dependent primarily on the expected time
duration of the installation, available power source, weather condi-
tions and terrain.
Location and Leveling. The shop set should be set up on clear,
flat, level terrain. The landing gear must make firm, solid contact
with the surface, and the wheels must be blocked in such a way as
to keep the shop set from rolling. With the canvas erected, the
area required by the shop set proper is approximately 40 x 25 ft.
The location of the shop set must provide such additional cleared
ground area as is required for adequate access to the shop set com-
ponents from all sides. If possible, select a site that is protected
from the elements (i.e. , dust, sand, and mud) .
Opening Shop Set. Refer to figures 4-4 and 4-5 and open the shop
set doors. Extend the hoist track as illustrated in figure 4-5. To
open the top engine enclosure door, turn handle one-quarter turn
clockwise and raise door until the two braces that support the door
in the raised position automatically lock. Release the latch bolt on
the inside of the lower door. This bolt is located near the top front
of the lower door. To close the engine enclosure door, raise the
lower door and secure the latch bolt. Release the top door by pres-
