Fill the fuel tank at the end of each day of operation to drive out moisture laden air and to prevent
Drain water and sediment from the tank at the start of each shift or after the tank has been filled and allowed to
stand 5 to 10 minutes. Drain miosture and sediment from the tank as required by prevailing conditions.
Drain water and sediment from the main fuel storage tank weekly, also before the tank is refilled. This will help
prevent water and sediment from being pumped into the machine fuel tank.
After changing fuel fitters, always bleed the fuel system.

TIVE (-) to NEGATIVE (-).
Make-up hydraulic fluid must mix with the fluid in the tank. Use only military recommended products.
Water or air from a malfunction in the hydraulic system will cause pump failure. Small air pockets caused
by air breaking into the system do not create a problem because the system is self-purging.
If the hydraulic oil is cloudy, water or air is entering the system. Drain and refill the hydraulic tank. Oper-
ate all hydraulic system components several times. Drain and refill the hydraulic tank. Tighten hydraulic
suction hose clamps and flanges.
SCHEDULED OIL SAMPLING
Use scheduled oil sampling or monitor machine condition and maintenance requirements.
Each sample should be taken when the oil is hot and well mixed. This will ensure that the sample is repre-
sentative of the oil in the compartment
Use military guidance and assistance in establishing a scheduled oil sampling program for your equipment.
Wipe all fittings, caps and plugs before servicing,
Drain moisture and sediment from the air reservoirs at the beginning of each day of operation.
