Clean parts in a well-ventilated area. Avoid inhalation of solvent fumes and prolonged exposure of skin to cleaning
solvent. Wash exposed skin thoroughly. Dry Cleaning solvent (Fed. Spec. PD-680) 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 100 to 138 (38 to 59 ).
1. FOR OPERATION OF EQUIPMENT IN COLD TEMPERATURES BELOW -10 (-23 ). Remove lubricants
prescribed in the key for temperatures above -10 (-23 ). Clean parts with dry cleaning solvent, PD-680 Type
II or equivalent. Relubricate with lubricants specified in the key for temperatures 0 to -65 (-17 to -53 ).
2. OIL FILTER. After installing filter, fill crankcase, operate engine 5 minutes, and check housing for leaks.
Shut down engine, check crankcase oil level, and bring to full mark. Oil filter replacement interval shall align
with on-condition, AOAP analysis or hard time oil change requirements. See notes 4 and 5.
3. OIL CAN POINTS. Every 100 hours, lubricate the door hinges, latches, control linkage, and all exposed
adjusting threads with OE/HDO/OEA.
4. CRANKCASE OIL. A sample of the oil shall be sent to an AOAP laboratory for analysis at an interval of 50
hours or 90 days. Refer to DA PAM 738-750 for sampling requirements.
5. When AOAP laboratory support is not available, drain and refill crankcase oil every 300 hours or 6 months.
The dipstick is marked so that the crankcase oil can be checked while engine is stopped or running. Always make
sure correct side of dipstick is checked. Remove oil filler cap when checking oil with engine running.
6. Fill and check oil level. After checking level, place dipstick into the adapter tube to prevent oil leakage or
