Section I. LUBRICATION INSTRUCTIONS
These lubrication Instructions are MANDATORY.
The water distributor must receive lubrication with approved lubricants at recommended intervals in order to
be mission-ready at all times.
The KEY lists lubricants to be used in all temperature ranges. Tabular listings show all lubrication points, and
names the item to be lubricated, the required lubricant, the recommended interval, and the estimated man-hours to
perform the service. Notes at the end of the tabular listing provide specific instructions.
Broken arrow shafts (-) indicate lubrication points on both sides of the semitrailer.
Level of maintenance authorized to perform lubrication is indicated in parentheses on last line of ITEM NAME
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
SPECIFIC LUBRICATION INSTRUCTIONS.
Maintain a record of lubrication performed and report any problems noted during lubrication. Refer to DA
Pam 738-750 for maintenance 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 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 100°F-130°F (38°C-59°C). If you become dizzy while using cleaning solvent,
immediately get fresh air and medical help. If solvent contacts eyes, immediately wash your eyes
and get medical aid.
Use dry cleaning solvent (Item 7, Appendix D) to clean grease fittings, lubrication points, and surrounding
areas before lubrication.
When lubricating at a grease fitting, apply enough grease to purge old grease from the lubricated area. When
old grease oozes from grease fitting, purging and relubricating are adequate.
After lubrication, wipe clean excess oil or grease to prevent accumulation of foreign matter.
Refer to FM 9-207 for instructions on lubrication in cold weather.
After operation under muddy, dusty, or sandy conditions, clean and inspect all points of lubrication for fouled
lubricants. Change lubricants as required.
