The term does not include cosmetic or minor surface degradation that does not effect the safety or serviceability of the cargo tank
Corrosive to the tank or valve means that the lading has been shown through experience or test data to reduce the thickness of the material of construction of the tank wall or valve.
Delivery hose assembly means a liquid delivery hose and its attached couplings.
Modification means any change to the original design and construction of a cargo tank or a cargo tank motor vehicle that affects its structural integrity or lading retention capability including changes to equipment certified as part of an emergency discharge control system required by § 173.315(n)(2) of this subchapter. Any modification that involves welding on the cargo tank wall must also meet all requirements for “Repair” as defined in this section. Excluded from this category are the following:

Excluded from this category are the following:
(1) A change to motor vehicle equipment such as lights, truck or tractor power train components, steering and brake systems, and suspension parts, and changes to appurtenances, such as fender attachments, lighting brackets, ladder brackets; and

(3) Replacement of an appurtenance by welding to a mounting pad.
Replacement of a barrel means to replace the existing tank on a motor vehicle chassis with an unused (new) tank. For the definition of tank, see § 178.320, § 178.345, or § 178.338-1 of this subchapter, as applicable.
