GENERAL LUBRICATION PROCEDURES
Lubricants are slippery and can cause falls. To avoid injury, wipe up spilled lubricant
immediately. Failure to comply may result in injury or death to personnel.
Lubrication instructions contained in Operator PMCS are MANDATORY.
Overall views of lubrication points are located at the end of this work package.
Localized lubrication views are located in the PMCS table in (WP 0060).
Dashed leader lines used in illustrations of lubrication points indicate that
lubrication is required on both sides of the machine.
Recommended intervals are based on normal conditions of operation, temperature, and humidity. When
operating under extreme conditions, such as high or low temperatures or exposure to sand or dust,
lubricants should always be changed more frequently. Lubricants that have become contaminated will be
changed regardless of interval. When in doubt, notify your supervisor.
Ensure all fluids drained as a result of lubrication or maintenance are collected in a suitable container and
disposed of IAW using unit s SOP. Clean up any spills immediately IAW spill containment plan.
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 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 Form 2404 or DA Form 5988-E, Equipment Inspection and Maintenance Worksheet to record and
Keep all external parts of equipment not requiring lubrication free of lubricants. Before lubrication, wipe
lubrication fittings with a Rag, Wiping (WP 0120, Table 1, Item 16) and Cleaning Compound, Solvent,
Type III (WP 0120, Table 1, Item 3). After lubrication, wipe off excess oil or grease to prevent
accumulation of foreign matter.
Refer to FM 9-207, Operation and Maintenance of Ordnance Materiel in Cold Weather for lubrication
instructions in cold weather.
