Figure 1-16. M60 weatherproof fuse igniter.
Press the shipping plug into the igniter to release the collet.
Rotate the shipping plug to loosen it, pull it out, and discard it.
Insert the free end of the time fuse as far as possible into the hole left by the shipping plug. Tighten the cap to
hold the fuse in place.
Hold the barrel in one hand, and remove the safety pin.
Grasp the pull ring, push it in, rotate it, then pull it out. In the event of a misfire, the M60 can be reset quickly
without disassembly by pushing the plunger all the way in and attempting to fire as before.
If the igniter still doesn't fire, replace it with a new one and repeat the steps listed above.
The M2 fuse igniter, shown in Figure 1-17, is an older system. The M2 is operated as follows:
Remove the cardboard shipping tube on the end of the igniter.
Pinch off the end of the plastic sealing compound to clear the end of the igniter. Save the sealing compound
for later use.
Insert the time fuse into the igniter, and push it until it is firmly seated. Replace the sealing compound to
ensure a weatherproof seal.
Grasp and pull the pull ring. The firing pin is spring-loaded, and will fire when the pull ring pin is removed.
This device cannot be recocked like the M60.
During emergencies, a common match may be used to light the time fuse, as shown in Figure 1-18. This method
is used as a last resort only. Procedures for match-lighting the time fuse are as follows.
Split the time fuse, and insert a match with the match head partially exposed.
Light the inserted match head with a flaming match, or rub the abrasive on the match box against it.
