PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE CHECKS AND SERVICES (PMCS), INCLUDING LUBRICATION
If you are operating the 200 kW TQG for the first time, you must do your BEFORE PMCS.
Always perform preventive maintenance in the same order so it gets to be a habit. Once you have had some practice,
you will spot anything wrong in a hurry.
Wiping rags are needed to remove dirt or grease.
If you find a fault or shortcoming when performing the PMCS, record it on your DA Form 2404 or automated DA From
5988-E (ARMY) if ULLS is available. Repair it if you can or notify maintenance.
If something appears to be a fault and you cannot repair it, record it on your DA Form 2404 or automated DA Form
5988-E (Army). If you find something seriously wrong, report it to maintenance as soon as possible.
Item numbers in column 1 of PMCS Table 1 indicate the PMCS sequence. Use these item numbers for the item number
column on your DA Form 2404 or automated DA Form 5988-E (Army).
Information in column 5 of PMCS Table 1 lists conditions that make the 200 kW TQG not fully mission capable. Write
up items not repaired on DA Form 2404 or automated DA Form 5988-E for maintenance. For further information on
how to use these forms, see DA PAM 738-750.
Wetness around seals, gaskets, fittings, or connections indicates leakage. A stain also denotes leakage. If a fitting or
connector is loose, tighten it if you can hand tighten. If not, notify maintenance. If a fitting or connector is broken or
defective, report it to maintenance.
Leak Definitions for PMCS
Operation is allowable with class I and II leakage. However, any wetness or leakage of fuel is
classified as a class III leak and the TQG must be shut down immediately and the problem corrected.
WHEN IN DOUBT, NOTIFY YOUR SUPERVISOR. When operating with class I or II leaks, check
fluid levels more frequently. Class III leaks must be reported immediately to your supervisor or to
maintenance. Failure to do this could result in damage to the 200 kW TQG and/or components.
Class I Leakage indicated by wetness or discoloration, but not great enough to form drops.
Class II Leakage great enough to form drops, but not enough to cause drops to drip from item being checked/inspected.
Class III Leakage great enough to form drops that fall from the item being checked/inspected.
Look for signs of a problem or trouble. You can feel, smell, hear, or see many problems. Be alert when in or around the
200 kW TQG.
Inspect the 200 kW TQG to see if items are in proper condition. Are they correctly assembled, stowed, and secured;
excessively worn, leaking, corroded; or properly lubricated? Correct any problems found or notify maintenance.
