Service Upon Receipt of Materiel
If the vehicle has been shipped by rail, unblock and unload the shipment observing existing regulations. Perform a run-in
test of at least 5 miles (8 kilometers [km] ) on all new, rebuilt, or overhauled vehicles, and a sufficient number of miles on
used vehicles to completely check their operation.
Do not use mineral spirits or paint thinner to clean the M88A1. Mineral spirits and paint thinners are
highly toxic and combustible. Prolonged breathing can cause dizziness, nausea, and even death. Do not
use these materials.
Solvents can burn easily, give off harmful vapors, and are harmful to skin and clothing. To avoid injury
or death, keep away from open flame and use in a well-ventilated area. If solvent gets on skin or clothing,
wash immediately with soap and water.
If any exterior surfaces are coated with rust preventive compound, remove it with cleaning compound (item 9, WP 0489
00). Whenever possible, the vehicle crew will help perform these services.
