ORGANIZATIONAL PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE CHECKS AND SERVICES (PMCS) INTRODUCTION - CONT
(Sheet 2 of 9)
GENERAL LUBRICATION PROCEDURES
NOTE 1: Lubrication instructions in LO 10-3930-641-12 have been superseded: Operator Maintenance level lubrication is contained in PMCS in TM 10-3930-
641-10. Organizational Maintenance level lubrication is contained in this PMCS.
NOTE 2: Lubrication instructions contained in this PMCS are mandatory.
NOTE 3: Dashed leader lines used in illustrations of lubrication points indicate that lubrication is required on both sides of the equipment.
Recommended intervals are based on normal conditions of operation, temperature, and humidity. When operating under extreme conditions, such as high or low tem-
peratures or exposure to sand or dust, lubricants should always be changed more frequently. Lubricants that have become contaminated must be changed regardless
of interval. When in doubt, notify your supervisor.
WARNING: When servicing this machine, performing maintenance, or disposing of materials such as engine coolant, hydraulic oil, lubricants, battery acids or
batteries, and CARC paint, consult your unit/local hazardous waste disposal center or safety office for local regulatory guidance. If further
information is needed, please contact The Army Environmental Hotline at 1-800-872-3845.
Ensure that all fluids drained as a result of lubrication or maintenance are collected in a suitable container and disposed of in accordance with local policy and ordi-
nances. Clean up any spills immediately.
Keep all lubricants in a closed container and store in a clean, dry place away from extreme heat. Keep container covers clean and do not allow dust, dirt, or other for-
eign material to mix with lubricants. Keep all lubrication equipment clean and ready for use.
Maintain a good record of all lubrication performed and report any problem noted during lubrication. Refer to DA PAM 750-8 for maintenance forms and procedures
WARNING: Solvent cleaning compound MIL-PRF-680 Type III is an environmentally compliant and low toxic material. However, it may be irritating to the
eyes and skin. Use protective gloves and goggles. Use in well-ventilated areas. Keep away from open flames and other sources of ignition. Failure to
do so may result in injury or death to personnel.
Keep all external parts of equipment not requiring lubrication free of lubricants. Before lubrication, wipe lubrication fittings with a clean rag (Item 16, Appendix C)
and solvent cleaning compound (Item 17, Appendix C). After lubrication, wipe off excess oil or grease to prevent accumulation of foreign matter.
Refer to FM 9-207 for lubrication instructions in cold weather.
Engine, transmission, and hydraulic system oil filters shall be changed when:
they are known to be contaminated or clogged;
at prescribed hardtime intervals.
For equipment under manufacturer's warranty, hardtime oil service intervals shall be followed. Intervals shall be shortened if lubricants are known to be contami-
nated or if operation is under adverse conditions (e.g., longer-than-usual operating hours, extended idling periods, or extreme dust).
