REPLACING INDIVIDUAL CABLE ASSEMBLIES
(OTHER THAN THE WINCH CORNER CABLE ASSEMBLY)
The entire cable assembly (other than the winch corner cable assembly) consists of one long cable that
extends from the winch to the corner opposite the personnel door from the winch. Three individual cables
branch from the long cable and extend to each of the three corners (other than the winch corner). The
replacement of any of the four individual cable assemblies is detailed below; replacement of the entire
cable assembly is detailed in the previous section entitled "REPLACING ENTIRE CABLE ASSEMBLY
(OTHER THAN THE WINCH CORNER CABLE ASSEMBLY)".
Many of the procedures for replacing an individual cable assembly are
the same as those detailed in the previous section entitled "REPLACING
ENTIRE CABLE ASSEMBLY (OTHER THAN THE WINCH CORNER
CABLE ASSEMBLY)", therefore references will simply be made to the
previous section as appropriate.
The procedure that follows applies only to the replacement of a cable assembly other than that located at
the winch corner. To replace the winch corner cable assembly, refer to the section of this work package
entitled "REPLACING WINCH CORNER CABLE ASSEMBLY".
Each of the four cables making up the cable assembly other than the winch corner cable assembly may
be replaced individually up to all four in quanitity. Replacement of one individual cable assembly of the
four would be handled in the same manner as for all four, specifically the long cable assembly which goes
to each of the three corners other than the winch corner. Replacement of one of the cable assemblies
which goes from the long cable assembly to an individual corner is as follows.
Prepare the CBC for cable replacement as detailed in the previous section entitled "PREPARING THE
CBC FOR CABLE REPLACEMENT".
Remove the cable assemblies from the winch barrel as detailed in the previous section.
Remove the pulley corner bracket top plate, from the corner where the damaged cable assembly is
located. If it is the long cable being replaced, then all pulley corner bracket top plates must be removed.
Proceed with removal of pulley corner top plate as detailed in the previous section.
Remove the turnbuckle locking clips from the cable being replaced and from all three turnbuckles, if long
cable assembly is being replaced as detailed in the previous section.
Remove the turnbuckle body, disconnecting the damaged cable from the long cable. If replacing the long
cable assembly, disconnect all three short cable assemblies that go down each corner (other than the
winch corner) at the point where they connect to the long cable.
