Fuel tankers ... use replacement clamp.

The old-style ground wire clamps used on fuel tankers are known to fall apart from rust and broken springs.

If you have an old clamp that's seen its last days, replace it with a more durable clamp that comes with NSN 5999-00-134-5844.

The new clamp is a snap to install. Remove the old clamp, snip off the wire eyelet if there is one, and fit the wire into the new clamp Use a 3/32-in hex wrench from the No. 1 or No. 2 Common shop set to tighten the clamp's handle screws to ground wire.
