LUBRICATION ORDER AND SERVICES
SECTION I. INTRODUCTION
The information contained in this appendix provides the lubrication/services requirements for the MTV vehicle.
Adherence. Intervals (on-condition or hardtime) and the related man-hour times are based on normal operation.
The man-hour time specified is the time needed to do all the services prescribed for a particular interval. On-
condition (OC) oil sample intervals will be applied unless changed by the Army Oil Analysis Program (AOAP)
laboratory. Change the hardtime interval if the lubricants are contaminated or if operating the equipment under
adverse operating conditions, including longer-than-usual operating hours. The calendar interval may be extended
during periods of low activity. If extended, adequate preservation precautions must be taken. Hardtime intervals
will be applied in the event AOAP laboratory support is not available. Hardtime intervals must be applied during
the warranty period.
Intervals shown in this lubrication order and services are based on mileage/calendar, and in some cases mileage alone.
An example of a mileage/calendar interval is: Q, which means every 3,000 miles (4,827 km) or quarterly (every three
months). The lubrication is to be performed at whichever interval occurs first for the vehicle. An example of a mileage
alone interval is: 6K, which stands for every 6,000 miles (9,654 km). The lubrication/services is to be performed at the
mileage indicated regardless of the calendar interval.
Dry Cleaning Solvent (P-D-680) is TOXIC and flammable. Wear protective goggles and gloves;
use only in well-ventilated area; avoid contact with skin, eyes, and clothes, and do not breath
vapors. Keep away from heat or flame. Never smoke when using solvent; the flashpoint for
Type I Dry Cleaning Solvent is 100 F (38 C) and for Type II is 138 F (50 C). Failure to comply
may result in serious injury or death to personnel.
If personnel become dizzy while using cleaning solvent, immediately get fresh air and
medical help. If solvent contacts skin or clothes, flush with cold water. If solvent contacts
eyes, immediately flush eyes with water and get medical attention. Failure to comply may
result in injury to personnel.
Cleaning fittings before lubricating. Clean parts with dry cleaning solvent (SD P-D-680) (Item 65, Appendix
or equivalent. Dry before lubricating. Dashed arrows indicate lubrication
on both sides
of the equipment.
Lubricating after fording. If fording occurs, lubricate all fittings below fording depth and check submerged
gearboxes for presence of water.
Lubricating after high-pressure washing. After a thorough washing, lubricate all grease fittings and oil can
points outside and underneath vehicle.
Level of Maintenance. The lowest level of maintenance authorized to lubricate a point is Operator/Unit
Maintenance (O). Operator/crew (C) may lubricate points authorized for Unit Maintenance (O) when authorized
by Unit Maintenance (O).
Localized views. A reference to the appropriate localized view is given after most lubrication entries. Localized
