e. Not Fully Mission Capable If Column. The Not Fully Mission Capable If column in Table 4-2 tells
you when your generator set is non-mission capable and why the engine assembly cannot be used.
If the generator set does not perform as required, refer to Section V, Troubleshooting.
If anything looks wrong and you cannot fix it, write it on your DA Form 2404. IMMEDIATELY
report it to your supervisor.
When you perform PMCS you will always need a rag or two. Following are checks that are common
to the entire generator set:
(1) Keep It Clean. Dirt, grease, oil, and debris only get in the way and may cover up a serious
problem. Clean as you work and as needed. Use dry cleaning solvent on all metal surfaces. Use
soap and water when you clean rubber or plastic material.
(2) Rust and Corrosion. Check components for rust and corrosion. If any bare metal or corrosion
exists, clean, and apply a thin coat of oil. Report it to your supervisor.
(3) Bolts, Nuts, and Screws. Check them for obvious looseness, missing, bent, or broken condition.
You cannot check them all with a tool, but look for chipped paint, bare metal, or rust around bolt
heads. If you find a bolt, nut, or screw you think is loose, tighten it or report it to your supervisor.
(4) Welds. Look for loose or chipped paint, rust, or gaps where parts are welded together. If you find
a bad weld, report it to your supervisor.
(5) Electric Wires and Connectors. Look for cracked, frayed, or broken insulation, bare wires, and
loose or broken connectors. Tighten loose connectors. Report any damaged wires to your
(6) Hoses and Fluid Lines. Look for wear, damage, and leaks, and make sure clamps and fittings are
tight. Wet spots show leaks, but a stain around a fitting or connector can also mean a leak. If a
leak comes from a loose fitting or connector, tighten it. If something is broken or worn out, report
it to your supervisor.
4-8. CLEANING AGENTS.
Cleaning solvents are flammable and toxic to eyes, skin, and respiratory
tract. Skin and eye protections are required when working in contact
with cleaning solvents. Avoid prolonged or repeated contact. Work in
well ventilated area only. Keep away from heat, sparks, and open flame.
Do not smoke while using cleaning solvent. Failure to observe this
warning can result in injury or death to personnel
