GENERAL PMCS PROCEDURES - Continued
Electric Wires and Connectors
Look for cracked or broken insulation, bare wires, and loose or broken connectors. Tighten loose connectors and
ensure that the wires are in good condition.
Hoses and Fluid Lines
Look for wear, damage, and signs of leaks. Ensure that clamps and fittings are tight. Wet spots indicate leaks, of
course, 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, notify Field Maintenance.
It is necessary for you to know how fluid leakage affects the status of your dump truck. The following are
definitions of the types/classes of leakage you need to know to be able to determine the status of your equipment.
Learn and be familiar with them, and remember when in doubt, notify Field Maintenance.
These instructions are mandatory.
Lubrication of M917A1, M917A1 with MCS, M917A2, and M917A2 with MCS
chassis is in TM 9-2320-363-10 or TM 9-2320-302-10 and TM 9-2320-363-20-1,
TM 9-2320-363-20-2, TM 9-2320-302-20-1, or TM 9-2320-302-20-2.
The M917A1, M917A1 with MCS, M917A2, and M917A2 with MCS Dump Body must receive lubrication with
approved lubricants at recommended intervals in order to be mission-ready at all times.
Recommended intervals are based on normal conditions of operation, temperature, and humidity. When operating
under extreme conditions, lubricants should always be changed more frequently. When in doubt, notify your
Keep all lubricants in a closed container and store in a clean, dry place away from extreme heat. Keep container
covers clean and do not allow dust, dirt, or other foreign material to mix with lubricants. Keep lubrication
equipment clean and ready for use.
Maintain a record of lubrication performed and report any problems noted during lubrication. Refer to DA PAM
750-8 for maintenance forms and procedures to record and report any findings.
Keep all external parts of equipment not requiring lubrication free of lubricants. After lubrication, wipe off excess
lubricant to prevent accumulation of foreign matter.
Refer to TM 4-33.31 for lubrication instructions in cold weather.
