SECTION I. General
BDAR for a hydraulic system is generally confined to component replacement, field
expedient line repairs, or bypassing of damaged lines. If a hydraulic circuit cannot be
repaired, it may be necessary to isolate it (cutting if off) from the system to permit
operation of some other hydraulic functions. General tubing and hydraulic hose repairs
are covered in TM 9-2350-276-BD.
9-2. Assessment Procedures.
No specific assessment procedures are needed to locate leaks and ruptured lines.
9-3. BDAR Procedure Index.
Specific M113 Family of Vehicle repairs are still under development. Refer to TM 9-
2350-276-BD for general hydraulic repairs.
