The maintenance level for all lubrication services in this Work Package is Unit.
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 and services, observe the following:
Never use incorrect lubricant or use too much lubricant.
a. Clean grease fittings before lubrication
b. Use this Work Package as a guide
c. Lubricate after fording
d. Ensure vehicle is level prior to checking fluid levels.
Lubrication after fording operations. As soon as possible after any fording operation in water of 12 inches or more,
lubricate all chassis points to cleanse of water of grit. Also lubricate any other points requiring maintenance after
fording. If vehicle has been in deep water for a considerable length of time, or was submerged beyond its fording
capabilities, the following precautions must be taken as soon as practicable to avoid damage to engine and other
a. Perform a complete lubrication service.
b. Check APU, main engine and transmission for presence of water or sludge in oil. If found, drain and
flush transmission with PE-1 Lubricating Oil, Internal Combustion engine, and drain and flush engines with
OE-30 Lubricating Oil, Internal Combustion engine. If PE-1 is not available, flush transmission with OE-10
Lubricating Oil, Internal Combustion engine. Before refilling with clean oil, remove, clean, and install
transmission oil filters (see WP 0266 00). Replace engine oil filter elements (see WP 0104 00).
c. Check lubricant in hydraulic reservoir and winch gear cases for evidence of water or sludge con-
tamination. If there is evidence of contamination, drain and refill with correct lubricant.
For operation of equipment in protracted cold temperatures below -10 F (-23 C). Remove lubricants prescribed in
table for temperatures above -10 F (-23 C). Clean parts with cleaning compound (WP 0489 00, item 9) or equivalent.
Relubricate with lubricants specified in Table 2, Lubricant Table for M88A1 Medium Recovery Vehicle, for tempera-
tures of 0 F to -65 F (-18 C to -50 C).
