These instructions are MANDATORY.
The trailer must receive lubrication with approved lubricants at recommended intervals in order to
be mission-ready at all times.
The LUBRICATION CHART shows the lubrication points, names items to be lubricated, the re-
quired lubricants, and the recommended interval for lubrication. Any special lubricating instruc-
tions required for specific components are in the NOTES section of the chart.
The KEY lists lubricants to be used in all temperature ranges and shows the intervals.
Recommended intervals are based on normal conditions of operation, temperature, and humidity.
When operating under extreme conditions, lubricants should always be changed more frequently.
When in doubt, notify your supervisor.
SPECIFIC LUBRICATION INSTRUCTIONS.
Keep all lubricants in closed containers and stored 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 lubri-
cants. Keep all lubrication equipment clean and ready to use.
Maintain a record of lubrication performed and report any problems noted during lubrication. Refer
to DA Pam 738-750 for applicable forms and procedures to record and report any findings.
Dry cleaning solvent, P-D-680, is toxic and flammable. Always wear protective goggles
and gloves and use solvent 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 solvents flash point is 100 oF to 138 oF (38 oC to 59 oC). If you become dizzy while
using cleaning solvent, immediately get fresh air and medical help.
If solvent contacts
eyes, immediately wash your eyes with water and get medical help.
Use dry cleaning solvent (Appendix E, item 5) to clean grease fittings, lubrication points, and sur-
rounding areas before lubricating.
Wipe excess lubricant from the area of brakeshoe linings to avoid grease soaking the lin-
ings. If brakeshoe linings become soaked, replace them. Failure to follow this warning
may cause brakes to malfunction, resulting in serious injury or death to personnel.
After lubrication, wipe off excess oil or grease to prevent accumulation of foreign matter.
