CLASS III - Leakage of fluid great enough to form drops that fall from the item being checked.
Look for signs of a problem or trouble. Senses help here. You can feel, smell, hear or see many problems. Be alert
when on the equipment.
Inspect to see if items are in good condition. Are they correctly assembled, stowed, secured, excessively worn,
leaking, corroded or properly lubricated? Correct any problems found or notify unit maintenance.
There are some common items to check all over the equipment. These include the following:
Bolts, clamps, nuts and screws: Continuously check for looseness. Look for chipped paint, bare metal, rust or
corrosion around bolt and screw heads and nuts. Tighten them when you find them loose. If tools are not available,
contact unit maintenance.
Welds: Many items on the equipment are welded. To check these welds, look for chipped paint, rust, corrosion or
gaps. When these conditions exist, notify unit maintenance on DA Form 2404.
Electrical wires, connectors and harnesses: Tighten loose connectors. Look for cracked or broken insulation, bare
wires and broken connectors. If any are found, notify unit maintenance.
Hoses and fluid lines: Look for wear, damage and leaks and make sure clamps and fittings are tight. Wet spots
mean a leak. A stain by a fitting or connector can also mean a leak. When you find a leak, notify unit maintenance.
Lubrication Service Intervals - Normal Conditions
For safer, more trouble free operations, make sure that your equipment is serviced when it needs it. For the proper
lubrication and service intervals, see the PMCS section of this manual.
Lubrication Service Intervals - Unusual Conditions
Your equipment will require extra service and care when you operate under unusual conditions. High or low
temperatures or long periods of hard use will break down the lubricant, requiring you to add or change lubricant
Lubrication Interval Symbols
The following lubrication interval symbols are used in the PMCS table:
