LUBRICATION CHART - Continued
Table 2. Notes - Continued.
OIL-CAN POINTS. Every month lubricate all pivots, shackles,
screw threads, hinges, and other components that require
lubrication but are not provided with lubrication fittings.
WINCH FRAME LOCKING LEVERS AND PINS. Apply OEA
by hand to locking lever pivot points.
Remove safety pin and washer to remove LHS pin. Lubricate
LHS pin and reinstall with washer and safety pin.
WINCH CABLE, DRUM, SHEAVES, ROLLERS, GUIDES,
AND HOOK ARM SURFACE. Every month clean and
lubricate with new GAA. Every six months, if cable is not
generally used, unwind entire cable, clean, and lubricate with
new GAA. Wipe off excess and coat winch drum with GAA
before rewinding cable on drum.
HOOK ARM HOOK AND BAP LOADING BAR. Lubricate with
grease as needed.
WINCH CASE AND HAND PUMP. Operator is to remove fill
plug and check for correct oil level. Oil level should be up to
filler plug. Unit maintenance removes fill plug and drain plug
to drain oil. Fill winch with OE/HDO through fill plug port. Unit
maintenance to check oil in hand pump by removing dipstick
and filling until fluid level reaches notch in dipstick.
PURGING OF LUBRICANT. When using a grease gun, apply
lubricant to the fitting until clean lubricant squeezes out of the
part being lubricated.
LIFT HOOK. Apply grease to lift hook more often if vehicle
truck mileage is low but LHS hours are high.
To allow access to the hook arm cylinder rear grease fittings
and LHS hook arm pin, the LHS should be fully extended.
The 50-hour interval is based on actual LHS operating hours.
The hours can be tracked by the operator using the
hourmeter. The LHS should be lubricated monthly or every
50 operating hours, whichever comes first.
