(3) Clean fittings before lubrication. Clean parts with drycleaning solvent (SD), Type II, or equivalent.
Dry before lubricating. Dotted arrow points indicate lubrication on both sides of equipment. A dotted circle
indicates a drain below. Relubricate all items found contaminated after fording.
(4) Read Processing and Reprocessing Record of Shipping, Storage, and Issue of Vehicles and
Spare Engines, tag (DD Form 1397) and follow all precautions listed. This tag should be attached to steering
wheel, steering column, or rotary switch.
2-6. SPECIFIC INSPECTION AND SERVICING INSTRUCTIONS
The following steps should be taken while performing specific inspections and services:
(1) Do the Semiannual (S) preventive maintenance checks and services listed in Section Ill in this
(2) Lubricate the vehicle. Do not lubricate gear cases and engine unless processing tab states that the
oil is unsuitable for 500 miles (805 km) operation. If oil is suitable, just check level.
(3) Schedule semiannual service on DD Form 314 (Preventive Maintenance Schedule and Record
(4) If vehicle is delivered with a dry charged battery, activate it according to TM 9-6140-200-14.
(5) Check vehicle coolant level and determine if solution is proper for climate (refer to TB 750-651 for
preparation of antifreeze solutions).
Section Ill. PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE CHECKS AND SERVICES
The best way to maintain vehicles covered by this manual is to inspect them on a regular basis so minor faults
can be discovered and corrected before they result in serious damage, failure, or injury. All intervals are
based on normal operation. Hard time intervals maybe shortened if your lubricants are contaminated or if you
are operating the equipment under adverse conditions, including longer-than-usual operating hours. Hard
time intervals may be extended during periods of low activity, though adequate preservation precautions must
be taken. This section contains systematic instructions of inspection, adjustment, lubrication, and correction
of vehicle components to avoid costly repairs or major breakdowns. This is Preventive Maintenance Checks
and Services (PMCS).
Unit maintenance, assisted by operator/crew, will perform checks and services contained in Table 2-1
(1) Semiannually (S). Every 6 months or 6,000 miles (9,654 km), whichever comes first.
(2) Annually (A). Every 12 months or 12,000 miles (19,308 km), whichever comes first.
(3) Biennially (B). Every 24 months or 24,000 miles (38,615 km), whichever comes first.
b. Refer to the following steps when performing lubrication checks and services:
(1) Intervals. Lubrication services coincide with the vehicles Semiannual (S) Preventive Mainte-
nance Service. For this purpose, a 10% tolerance (variation) in specified lubrication point mileage is permissi-
ble. Those vehicles not accumulating 1,000 miles (1 ,609 km) in a 6-month period will be lubricated at the time
of (S) Preventive Maintenance Service.
(2) Army Oil Analysis Program (AOAP). AOAP does not apply to CUCV series vehicles.
