2.

Replacement
A.

Removal
(1)

Remove the scrolltoPc filter Pc line by disconnecting the line at both ends. Hold the filter
assembly by placing the proper size wrench on the large hex flats of the housing or filter
element while loosening the coupling nut.

(2)

Disconnect the Pc air tube from the aft end of the filter. Hold the filter assembly as outlined
above while loosening the coupling nut.

WARNING: FAILURE TO PROPERLY REMOVE OR INSTALL PC AIR LINES MAY DAMAGE


LINES, FITTINGS, AND/OR FILTER ASSEMBLY WHICH CAN RESULT IN SUDDEN UNINTENDED ENGINE POWER LOSS.

Installation
(1)

Assemble the clamp on the filter and secure it to the filter mounting bracket with a bolt and
nut. Tighten the nut to 3540 lb in. (3.94.5 N.m). Make sure that the arrow on the filter is
pointed rearward.

(2)

Attach the air tubes on both ends of the filter. Hold the filter with the proper wrench at the
hex flats of the filter assembly while tightening the coupling nuts to 80120 lb in. (9.013.6
N.m).

Cleaning and Inspection


A.

B.

Disassembly
(1)

Remove the lockwire and separate the filter element and packing from the filter housing.
(See Figure 201, this section.)

(2)

When a vise is used, place the element hex (1) in the vise and use a wrench on the hex of
the housing (3).

Cleaning the Element


Clean the filter assembly ultrasonically if equipment is available. If ultrasonic equipment is not
available, use either of the following alternate cleaning methods.
(1)

(2)

Solvent and brush method.


(a)

Cap the outlet fitting of the element with a clean metal cap (AN 8204 or equivalent).

(b)

Wash the element with solvent and a soft bristle brush.

(c)

Remove the cap and blow dry the element. Use clean, dry lowpressure air,
100120 psig (689827 kPag), in a reverse flow direction (through the outlet fitting).

Sodium hydroxide soak method.


WARNING: SODIUM HYDROXIDE CAN CAUSE SEVERE BURNS. DO NOT GET IN
EYES, ON SKIN OR ON CLOTHING. IN THE EVENT OF CONTACT WITH
SODIUM HYDROXIDE, IMMEDIATELY FLOOD EXPOSED SKIN OR
CLOTHING WITH WATER. FOR EYES, FLUSH HEAVILY WITH WATER
AND OBTAIN IMMEDIATE MEDICAL ATTENTION.
WARNING: POTASSIUM PERMANGANATE CAN BE VERY DANGEROUS IF IMPROPERLY HANDLED. CONTACT WITH ORGANIC MATERIALS (OIL,
GREASE) CAN CAUSE FIRE.
(a)

Soak the filter element in a sodium hydroxide solution at 102107C (215225F)


for a maximum of one hour.

PARA 3.B.(2) (a) (cont)
NOTE:

C.

A typical solution is 13.5 oz (399 milliliters) sodium hydroxide and 4 oz


(118 milliliters) potassium permanganate in one gallon (3.8 liter) deionized water.

(b)

Thoroughly rinse the element in cold running water.

(c)

Blow dry the element. Use clean, dry low--pressure air, 100--120 psig (689--827
kPag), in a reverse flow direction (through the outlet fitting).

(d)

Immerse the element in a neutralizing solution of phosphoric acid (50% acid, 50%
water) at 21C (70F) for 5 minutes.

(e)

(Thoroughly rinse the element in cold running water.

(f)

Blow dry the element. Use clean, dry low--pressure air, 100--120 psi (689--827
kPa), in a reverse flow direction (through the outlet fitting).

Inspection
Inspect the filter assembly for dirt or damage. Replace unserviceable filters.

D.

Assembly
(1)

Apply high temperature lubricant (Never--Seez or equivalent) lightly to the threads; then,
assemble the packing and housing over the filter element.

(2)

When a vise is used, place the element hex in the vise and use a wrench on the hex of the
housing. If a metallic seal is used, tighten to 60--65 lb ft. (81--88 N.m). If a rubber seal is
used, tighten to 150--175 lb in. (16.9--19.8 N.m). Secure with lockwire.
