Section II. PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE CHECKS AND SERVICES (PMCS)
This section contains PMCS requirements for the FRS. The PMCS tables contain checks and services necessary to
ensure that the FRS is ready for operation. Using PMCS tables, perform maintenance at specified intervals.
Cleaning Instructions and Precautions. During PMCS keep the following general maintenance
procedures in mind:
Cleanliness. Dirt, grease, oil and debris may cause or cover a serious problem. Clean all metal surfaces.
Bolts, nuts and screws. Check bolts, nuts and screws for obvious looseness, missing, bent, or broken
condition. Look for chipped paint, bare metal, or rust around bolt heads. If any part seems loose, tighten
it, or have the part repaired or replaced.
Welds. Look for loose or chipped paint, rust, or gaps on welds. If a bad weld is found, notify Unit
Electrical wires and connectors. Look for cracked or broken insulation, bare wires and loose or broken
connectors. Tighten loose connectors and make sure wires are in good shape. If a wire or connector is
bad, notify Unit Maintenance.
Fluid lines and fittings. Look for wear, damage and leaks, and make sure clamps and fittings are tight. If
a leak comes from a loose fitting or connector, tighten it. If something is broken or worn out and can not
be fixed with tools available, notify Unit Maintenance.
Air system components. Look for worn, damaged or leaking components. Make sure clamps and fittings
are tight. If a leak comes from a loose fitting or connector, tighten it. If something is broken or worn out,
either repair or replace it, or notify Unit Maintenance.
