Section I. LUBRICATION INSTRUCTIONS
Lubrication in accordance with LO 5-3895-371-12 and the instructions
contained in the PMCS table, (section II), is extremely important. Failure
to lubricate the Bituminous Distributor properly will result in unscheduled
maintenance and increased downtime.
LO 5-3895-371-12 explains your responsibilities for lubricating the Bituminous Distributor. It tells you what lubricants to
use, and illustrates the lubrication points and how often to service them
3-2. Detailed Lubrication Information.
a. Care of Lubricants. When lubricating the Bituminous Distributor, handle and apply the various lubricants carefully.
Keep the containers clean and free of dust and water. After lubrication is completed, cover all containers tightly and store
so the contents will be kept usable
b. Points of Application. Lubrication fittings and oil holes are readily located by reference to LO 5-3895-371-12.
c. Cleaning. Use an approved cleaning solvent to clean all fittings and surrounding surfaces before lubrication. After
cleaning, dry parts thoroughly
Section II PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE CHECKS AND SERVICES
a. Maintenance Forms and Records. Every mission begins and ends with the paperwork. There isn't much of it, but
you have to keep it up. The forms and records you fill out have several uses. They are a permanent record of the
services, repairs, and modifications made on your distributor; they are reports to Organizational Maintenance and to your
Commander, and they are a checklist for you when you want to know what is wrong with the distributor after its last use
and whether those faults have been fixed. For the information you need on forms and records, see DA Pam 738-750.
b. Preventive Maintenance Checks and Services (see Table 3-1).
(1) Do your (B) PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE just before you operate the distributor. Pay attention to the
CAUTIONS and WARNINGS
