Lightweight TEAMPACK/M1028 CUCV.
The CUCV has four lifting points: two are on the front
bumper and two are on the rear bumper. Use a size 60
longitudinal spreader bar to prevent damage to the
truck's grill and hood. The frame modification kit must
be on all vehicles that are to be lifted. The kit enhances
the vehicle's structural integrity for crane lifting
operations, Each vehicle must be visually checked to
see if the kit has been mounted. Figure 6-4 shows the
procedure for lifting the vehicle.
Loading. The TEAMPACK and lightweight
TEAMPACK systems shall be loaded onto vessels in
their minimum reduced height configuration. They can
be loaded onto loading craft, beach discharge and
amphibious lighters, and loading ships under their own
power or by a crane of adequate capacity. Shoreside or
floating cranes are required to lift the systems onto
decks of barges. The systems can be loaded onto
seagoing vessels by shoreside or floating cranes of
adequate capacity. Jumbo booms and heavy-lift ship's
gear may be used to load these systems onto vessels.
They can be loaded under their own power or towed
onto RORO vessels. The M1015 carrier should be
equipped with rubber pads. Vessel deck surfaces
should be dry and free of grease and debris.
Cargo Vessels. Typical blocking details
TEAMPACK systems are shown in figures 6-5 and 6-6,
respectively. Materials and their applications are shown
in tables 6-1 through 6-4.
Table 6-1. Bill of Materials for Blocking of TEAMPACK Carrier in Hold of General-Cargo Vessel (Fig 6-5)
Douglas-fir or comparable, straight-grain free from material
defects; Fed Spec MM-L-751: 4- x 6-inch
2- x 10-inch
6- x 8-inch
Common, steel, flathead; bright or cement-coated; type II,
style 10, Fed Spec FF-N-105: 20d
Table 6-2. Application of Materials for Blocking of TEAMPACK Carrier in Hold of General-Cargo Vessel (Fig 6-5)
Lumber, 2- x 10- x 132-inch.
Pre-position on floor of vessel hold, under
vehicle treads. Two pieces are required under each tread. (This application
is not to be used if tracks have rubber pads.)
Each consists of one piece of 6- x 8-inch x length cut-to-suit
lumber. Locate one piece against outside of vehicle treads, on each side of
End blocks. Each consists of one piece of 6- x 8-inch x length cut-to-suit
lumber. Locate on top of item B, against vehicle treads (front and rear).
Toenail to item B with four 40d mails, at each end.
Backup cleats, 4- x 6- x 12-inch lumber. Locate on top of item B, against
item C. Toenail to item B with four 40d nails, at each end.
Bracing, 6- x 8-inch x length cut-to-suit lumber. Brace as required against
vehicle blocking, against side of vessel, or against adjacent cargo blocking,
to immobilize vehicle and blocking. Secure each end to adjacent bracing or
blocking by toenailing with 40d nails.
