*See back page for O-ring Identification
O-rings should be lightly lubricated with food grade silicone Molykote® 111 or equivalent in accordance with the
operations and maintenance manual. Christo-Lube® may also be used. At a minimum, all helmet or BandMask
O-rings should be replaced at least once a year in accordance with the A2.1 checklist for the helmet or mask being
inspected. During daily and monthly maintenance, disturbed O-rings and valves may be reused providing no
damage or deformation is found. O-rings and valves may require replacement more often than yearly if the helmet
or mask use is extreme, or if the helmet or mask is used in waters containing oil or chemical contamination. Daily
cleaning and inspections as well as performing the monthly inspection (A2.2 checklist) will identify the need
more accurately than simply placing a number of hours between overhaul. Store spare O-rings, valves and soft
goods in a cool, dark, dry place. Avoid prolonged exposure to temperatures above 90 degrees Fahrenheit and/or
exposure to ultra violet rays. Do not lubricate exhaust valves. Lubricating valves can cause dirt to stick, allowing
leakage.
B CAUTION
Use only KMDSI original replacement parts. The use of other manufacturers' parts will interfere with the performance characteristics of your life support equipment and may jeopardize
your safety. Additionally, any substitutions will void any warranties offered by KMDSI. When
ordering spares, always insist on Kirby Morgan Genuine Parts.
Required Tools:
3/8" socket with driver
Torque screwdriver with flat blade attachment
5/32 inch hex key
3/8 inch open end wrench
Medium Strength Loctite®

1) See the Stainless Steel Helmets with SuperFlow® 350
or 455 Balanced Regulators module in your manual for
pod removal, remove the pod/regulator assembly from
the helmet shell. Remove the oral nasal mask, then
remove and save the oral nasal valve body and valve to
be used with the new oral nasal mask.
Note that there are eight screws that secure the pod to the
helmet. Six screws are “short” while two are “long.” The two
longer screws are installed in the top two holes in the pod.
6) Install the new pod/regulator assembly onto the helmet
shell.
Remove the pod/regulator assembly from the helmet shell
2) Install the washer and regulator assembly into the
helmet, threading the regulator mount nut as you feed the
regulator assembly in, hand tight only.
3) Work around the edge of the whisker where it meets
the helmet shell to align the rubber grooves at the back of
the whisker, to the grooves on the pod.
4) Install the gasket on the pod. Make sure that the ridge
on the gasket is properly seated in the groove in the pod.
5) Install all of the allen screws and washers through the
pod and gasket, with the exception of the bottom two.
The screws will help to align the pod and gasket to the
helmet.
Remember that the two long screws are installed in the
top two holes of the pod, between the top of the regulator
cover and the port retainer.

Install the new pod/regulator assembly onto the helmet shell.
7) Install the remaining two bottom screws, washers and
nuts. Run the nuts up until they are finger tight. The nuts
are positioned on the outside of the pod on the two screws
on the bottom, below the regulator

8) Tighten the screws onto the helmet. The numbers indicate
the order in which the screws and nuts that retain the pod
are tightened to connect the pod to the helmet. See figure 4.
Tighten the screws gradually, moving from one to another.
Do not overtighten. Carefully watch the gasket as you
tighten the screws—tightening until the gasket barely begins
to extrude from between the pod and helmet shell.

12) Lightly lubricate the male threads on the side block and
swing the bent tube up into place and torque the bent tube
to the side block.
13) Apply medium strength Loctite® to whisker screws
before installing. Install the whisker spacers, zinc anodes or
kidney plates if present, and screws that secure the whiskers.
Torque whisker screws to 15 in/lbs.
Tighten the nuts in a staggered pattern.
9) The whisker should have a straight angled surface from
the helmet shell towards the outer edge of the regulator.
Realign if needed.
The whiskers are fastened to the face port using two screws on
each side.
10) Install the oral nasal valve body and valve into the new
oral nasal mask. Make certain the valve direction is correct.
