This task covers:
Type MIL-PRF-2104 oil.
Not in use.
Under normal service conditions lubrication should not be necessary. However, with
the launch vehicle having air dryers lubrication may be necessary.
If lubrication is required, use automotive oil MIL-PRF-2104.
Lubrication is achieved by injecting a little oil in to the equipment via the sleeve
fitting. This operation should be carried out at the end of the working day and before
every extended stoppage.
If the piston gums up, only lubricate with the recommended oil.
After lubrication, store the equipment vertically with the handle at the top.
