e. Splice new packing (46, Sheet 5) for propeller hub seal using Loctite kit, as follows:
(1) Use new packing forming 8 1/2 inch outside diameter with 1/2 inch cord diameter.
Clean-up solvent contained in the kit contains dimethyl formanide which is toxic.
The solvent is provided with the kit for clean-up and is not essential to the splicing
procedure. When used, application of the solvent should be done sparingly and
limited to areas having exhaust ventilation. Use eye protection and rubber gloves.
In case of skin contact, wash with soap and water. In case of eye contact, flush
with water and seek medical attention as soon as possible.
(2) Splicing. Clean razor blade with clean-up solvent, soap and water, or degreasing solvent
before each cut. Most razor blades are coated with a film of silicone oil to prevent rusting,
which will interfere with good bonding of spliced joints.
Ensure the packing material is the correct size as stipulated in paragraph (1). Use
sharp razor blade to prevent distortion of the packing ends. Do not touch cut ends,
and prevent the ends from becoming contaminated with dirt or grease during
(a) With one slicing motion of the razor blade, make a single cut in the packing material to
avoid jagged edges. Cut the material vertically on the radius, so that the cut end forms
Adhesives are eye irritants. In case of accident, flush with water only and seek
medical attention as soon as possible. The adhesive bonds strongly and quickly
on contact. In case of skin bonding, carefully peel or cut apart contacted areas.
Do not pull apart, as adhesive is stronger than skin and will tear skin off. Bond
may be softened by soaking in nail polish remover or acetone.
