PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE CHECKS AND SERVICES (PMCS), INCLUDING LUBRICATION
There are some common items to check all over the TQG. These include the following:
Cleaning compound is toxic. Avoid prolonged breathing of vapors. Use only in a well-ventilated
area. Failure to comply can cause serious injury to personnel.
Dirt, grease, oil, and debris: They only get in the way and may cover up a serious problem. Keep the equipment clean.
Clean as you work and as needed. Use Simple Green cleaning compound to clean metal surfaces and rubber or plastic
Bolts, clamps, nuts, and screws: Continuously check for looseness. Look for chipped paint, bare metal, rust, or
corrosion around bolts and screw heads and nuts. Tighten them when you find them loose. If tools are not available,
Welds: Many items on the TQG skid mount are welded. To check these welds, look for chipped paint, rust, corrosion,
or gaps. If broken welds exist, notify maintenance on DA Form 2404 or automated DA Form 5988-E (Army).
Electrical wires, connectors, and harnesses: Tighten loose cannon plugs. Look for cracked or broken insulation, bare
wires, loose cannon plugs, and broken connectors. When these conditions exist, notify maintenance.
Hoses and fluid lines: Check hoses and fluid lines for wear, damage, and leaks. Ensure clamps and fittings are tight.
Hinges: Check hinges for security and operation.
Data plates: Check data, caution, and warning plates for security and legibility.
