These instructions are mandatory.
This equipment is enrolled in the Army Oil Analysis Program (AOAP).
Engine oil and transmission oil must be sampled every 90 days as pre-
scribed by DA Pam 738-750.
The M915A3 must receive lubrication with approved lubricants at recommended inter-
vals in order to be mission-ready at all times.
The Lubrication Chart shows lubrication points, items to be lubricated, the required lubri-
cants, and recommended intervals for lubrication by the operator/crew. Any special lubri-
cation instructions required for specific components are contained in the NOTES section
of the chart.
The KEY and CHARTs A through C provide information needed to select the proper
lubricant for various temperature ranges and uses, and identify the interval.
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 supervisor.
SPECIFIC LUBRICATION INSTRUCTIONS
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 lubrica-
tion. Refer to DA Pam 738-750 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 FM 9-207 for lubrication instructions in cold weather.
