F-1. GENERAL STATEMENTS.
Scope. This Appendix provides lubrication instructions, procedures, and information on the authorized lubricants,
lubrication intervals, and Army Oil Analysis Program (AOAP) for the M88A1 Medium Recovery Vehicle.
Lubrication Intervals and Interval Symbols. The lubrication instructions found in this appendix are presented
in grouped sequence by interval. The following lubrication symbols are used to indicate how often the lubrication
services will be performed.
Maintenance Level. The maintenance level for all lubrication services in this appendix is Operator/Crew.
Exceptional Operational Requirements. Lubricate more often to compensate for abnormal and extreme
conditions. High or low temperatures, prolonged periods of high rate operation, continued operation in sand, dust,
or exposure to moisture may quickly destroy the protective qualities of the lubricant.
Before performing lubrication checks or services, observe the following:
Use incorrect lubricant.
Use too much lubricant.
Clean grease fittings before lubrication.
Use this appendix as a guide.
Lubricate after fording.
Ensure vehicle is level prior to checking fluid levels.
