PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE CHECKS AND SERVICES
To insure that the distributor is ready for operation at all times, it must be inspected systematically so that defects may be
discovered and corrected before they result in serious damage or failure. Table 2 contains a tabulated listing of
preventive maintenance checks and services to be performed by organizational maintenance personnel. All deficiencies
and shortcomings will be recorded as well as the corrective action taken on DA Form 2404 at the earliest possible
Organizational Preventive Maintenance Checks and Services:
a. The item numbers of Table 2 indicate the sequence of the PMCS. Perform at the intervals shown below:
(1) Do your (Q) PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE once each 3 months.
(2) Do your (S) PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE twice a year, on each 6 months.
(3) Do your (A) PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE once each year.
(4) Do your (B) PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE once each two year.
(5) Do your (H) PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE at the hour interval listed.
(6) Do your (MI) PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE when the mileage of the vehicle reaches the amount listed.
b. If something doesn't work, troubleshoot it with the instructions in this manual Ai notify your supervisor.
c. Always do your preventive maintenance in the same order, so it gets to be a habit. Once you've had some
practice you'll spot anything wrong in a hurry.
d. If anything looks wrong and you can't fix it, write it down on your DA Form 2404. If you find something seriously
wrong, report it to direct support as soon as possible.
(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 (SD-2) to clean metal surfaces. Use soap and water when you
clean rubber or plastic material.
