F-1. GENERAL STATEMENTS-Continued.
Abbreviations. Abbreviations for the various lubricants used in this appendix are provided below.
Lubricating Oil, Internal Combustion Engine (ICE), Tactical Service (MIL-
L-2104) (Appx. D, item 30)
Lubricating Oil, ICE, Arctic (MIL-L-46167) (Appx. D, item 31)
Lubricating Oil, General Purpose, Preservative (VV-L-800) (Appx. D,
Lubricating Oil, Chain, Wire Rope, Exposed Gear (VV-L-751) (Appx. D,
Dry-cleaning solvent, type II, used to clean parts, is potentially dangerous to
personnel and property. Do not use near open flame or excessive heat. Flash
point of solvent is 138°F (59°C).
Use dry-cleaning solvent P-D-680 (Appx. D, item 16) to clean parts.
Corrosion Control. Follow corrosion control procedures as indicated (see para. 1-3).
F-2. OIL FILTER STATEMENT. When AOAP service is not available, change oil and filters at the direction of the AOAP
Always use table F-1, Expected Temperature Lubrication Requirements, to determine seasonal lubrication requirements.
When changing engine and transmission oil due to seasonal requirements, always change the filters.
Sound Maintenance practice dictates that AOAP is not a maintenance substitute, but is used as an effective maintenance
diagnostic tool. Therefore, if 12 months have elapsed since the last AOAP or seasonally directed oil and filter change, the
oil and filters will be changed.
F-3. LUBRICATION INSTRUCTIONS. On-condition (OC) oil sample intervals shall be applied unless changed by the
AOAP laboratory. Change the hard time interval if your lubricants are contaminated or if you are operating the equipment
under adverse operating conditions, including longer than usual operating hours. The hard time intervals 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.
