GENERAL LUBRICATION PROCEDURES
Dry cleaning solvent P-D-680 type III is toxic and flammable. Wear protective goggles and gloves and
use only in a well-ventilated area. Avoid contact with skin, eyes, and clothes and do not breathe
vapors. DO NOT use near open flame or excessive heat. The solvent's flash point is 200F (94C). If
you become dizzy while using dry cleaning solvent, get fresh air immediately and get medical help. If
solvent contacts eyes, wash your eyes and get medical aid immediately. Failure to comply may cause
injury or death to personnel.
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 foreign material to mix with lubricants. Keep lubrication equipment clean and
ready for use.
Clean area around lubrication points with dry cleaning solvent or equivalent before lubricating equipment. Keep all
external parts of equipment not requiring lubrication free of lubricants. After lubrication, wipe off excess lubricant to
prevent accumulation of foreign matter.
Maintain record of lubrication performed and report any problems noted during lubrication.
Refer to FM 9-207 for lubrication instructions in cold weather.
