Refer to LO 5-3895-385-13 for all lubrication procedures and intervals.
It is necessary to know how fluid leakage affects the status of the BMPM. The following are types/classes of
leakage needed to determine the status of the BMPM. Learn these leakage definitions and remember--when in
doubt, notify immediate supervisor. Equipment operation is allowed with minor leakage (Class I or II).
Consideration must be given to fluid capacity in the item/system being checked/inspected. When in doubt, notify
When operating with Class I or II leaks, continue to check fluid levels as required in the PMCS. If there is a Class I
or II fuel leak, leak should be reported immediately to immediate supervisor.
Class III leaks should be reported immediately to immediate supervisor.
(1) Class I - Seepage of fluid (as indicated by wetness or discoloration) not great enough to form drops.
(2) Class II - Leakage of fluid great enough to form drops but not enough to cause drops to drip from item
(3) Class III - Leakage of fluid great enough to form drops that fall from item being checked/inspected.
