PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE CHECKS AND SERVICES (PMCS)
INCLUDING LUBRICATION INSTRUCTIONS - CONTINUED
GENERAL LUBRICATION PROCEDURES
N OT E
Lubrication instructions containe in this PMCS are MANDATORY.
Overall views of lubrication points are lo ated at the end of this work package.
Localized views are provided following the overall views. Reference to these localized views is provided
from the overall views.
Recommended intervals are based on normal conditions of operation, temperature, and humidity. When operating under
extreme conditions, such as high or low temperatures or exposure to sand or dust, lubricants should always be changed
more frequently. Lubricants that have become contaminated will be changed regardless of interval. When in doubt,
notify your supervisor.
WARN I N G
When servicing this machine, performing maintenance or disposing of materials such as engine coolant,
hydraulic fluid, lubricants, battery acids or batteries, and CARC paint, consult your unit/local hazardous
waste disposal center or safety office for local regulatory guidance. If further information is needed, please
contact The Army Environmental Hotline at 1-800-872-3845. Failure to do so may result in injury or death
Ensure all fluids drained as a result of lubrication or maintenance are collected in a suitable container and disposed of in
accordance with local policy and ordinances. Clean up any spills immediately.
Keep all lubricants in a closed container and store 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 lubricants. Keep all lubrication equipment clean
and ready for use.
Maintain a good record of all lubrication performed and report any problem noted during lubrication. Refer to DA PAM
738-750 for maintenance forms and procedures to record and report any findings.
WARN I N G
Solvent cleaning compound MIL-PRF-680 Type III is an environmentally compliant and low toxic
material. However, it may be irritating to the eyes and skin. Use protective gloves and goggles. Use in well-
ventilated areas. Keep away from open flames and other sources of ignition. Failure to do so may result in
injury or death to personnel.
Keep all external parts of equipment not requiring lubrication free of lubricants. Before lubrication, wipe lubrication fit-
tings with a clean rag and solvent cleaning compound. After lubrication, wipe off excess oil or grease to prevent accu-
mulation of foreign matter.
Refer to FM 9-207, Operation and Maintenance of Ordnance Materiel in Cold Weather for lubrication instructions in
For equipment under manufacturer's warranty, hardtime oil service intervals shall be followed. Intervals shall be short-
ened if lubricants are known to be contaminated or if operation is under adverse conditions (i.e., longer-than-usual oper-
ating hours, extended idling periods, or extreme dust).
N OT E
The 966H Wheel Loader is not enrolled in the Army Oil Analysis Program (AOAP).
Engine, transmission, and hydraulic system oil filters shall be changed when:
