The "NOT FULLY MISSION CAPABLE." column of Table 2-1. Information in this column tells you what faults will
keep your equipment from being capable of performing its primary mission. If you make check and service
procedures that show faults listed in this column, do not operate the equipment. Follow standard operating
procedures for maintaining the equipment or reporting equipment failure.
The following are checks that are common to the entire lube unit system:
Keep the equipment clean. Remove dirt, sand, and debris from quick disconnect couplings, hose ends, and
valves to prevent excessive wear and system contamination.
Check and tighten loose nuts, bolts, and screws.
Look for wear, damage, and leaks on hoses and fuel lines. Make sure clamps and quick disconnect
couplings are tight. Wet spots show leaks, and a stain around a fitting or connector may also indicate a
leak. Tighten any loose fittings or couplings. Repair or report problems to unit maintenance.
Check wiring and connectors for cracked or broken insulation, exposed wiring, and loose or broken
connectors. Repair problems or inform unit maintenance (5) Check welds for gaps, cracks, and rust.
Check paint for chipping. Report problems to unit maintenance.
Look for leaking diesel fuel, oil, or lubricants. Report leaks to unit maintenance.
Check trailer tires for tread wear, and cracking. Report problems to unit maintenance.
Be sure to observe all special information and notes that appear in your table.
LEAKAGE DEFINITIONS FOR OPERATOR PMCS.
It is necessary for you to know how fluid leakage affects the status of the equipment. The following are classes and
definitions of leakage an operator needs to know to be able to determine the status of the Lubrication and Servicing Unit.
Be familiar with these leakage definitions. When in doubt, notify your supervisor.
