Holes in the drum casing not greater
than 3/8 inch (0.9525 cm).
Fuel Drum Emergency Repair Kit
(Provided with Fuel Drum)
Emergency repair kits are used only to prevent leakage until the operator can
empty the drums. Do not attempt to tow, lift or transport partially filled drum, to
which emergency repairs have been applied. Empty fuel drum completely before
towing, lifting or transporting.
When necessary, insert the required size wood plug (1) in the hole to temporarily stop the leak.
Roll drum over to position the plugged hole at the highest point on the drum.
Use the round cutting tool (2) to cut a clean edge around the hole to prepare hole for patch.
Screw the patch assembly (3) into the end of the cutting tool (2) handle.
Push the conical end of a mechanical patch assembly (3) through the prepared hole, and pull the patch tight against the
interior of the drum wall.
Screw aluminum cap and gasket down tight and use the socket end of the cutting tool (2) to tighten the cap on the patch
assembly (3) against the exterior drum wall.
To avoid cuts, punctures or abrasions to other drums, do not allow other drum to
rest on or roll into the patch assembly shank.
If drum casing requires more extensive repair, notify direct and general support maintenance.
