REPORTING EQUIPMENT IMPROVEMENT RECOMMENDATIONS (EIR)


TM 115820890-20-3
1.2 SCOPE
This "Unit Level Maintenance Handbook, " TM 20-3 contains troubleshooting guides
and selected technical data applicable to SINCGARS ICOM Ground Radios,
AN/PRC-119A and AN/VRC-87A trough AN/VRC-92A. Abbreviated Troubleshooting
Guides (TSG) provide identical procedures to those found in TM 20-1. In general,
these guides tell the maintainer "what" needs to be done, but not "how." Cable
schematics and selected graphics offer the experienced unit maintainer additional
information on which to troubleshoot and replace or repair faulty components.
1.3 AVOIDING "FALSE PULLS"
A "False Pull" is what occurs when a component or LRU is identified as faulty and sent
to Direct Support Maintenance when in fact the item is operational. False Pulls hurt
your unit in several ways. A piece of equipment has been needlessly removed from
the unit, reducing mission readiness and operational capabilities. Also, replacing an
operational component with a like item did nothing to correct the problem which
started the maintenance action. And, importantly, the number of good components
needlessly sent to DS for maintenance can reflect positively or negatively on your unit
maintainers, as well as slowing down the repair process for actual failed components.
How can False Pulls be avoided? Recognizing the nature of electrical and electronic
component failures, it may not be possible to avoid ever experiencing a False Pull.
But, it is possible to avoid all but a few. Here is how. Follow some simple, straight
froward rules:
Don't guess; DO troubleshoot.
a.
b. Don't rely on memory; DO use your Handbook or TM.
c.
Don't chase symptoms; DO perform the Operational Check.
Don't "pull and push;" DO replace/repair the component identified by the
d.
Operational Check or TSG.
e.
Don't send replaced item to DS without double-checking; DO test LRU
again after replacement to verify that it is faulty.
