1. ENGINE AND TRANSMISSION.
Cold Oil Check. When initially filling or changing the transmission
fluid, use the COLD band on dipstick. At an initial operating temperature of 60
to 120 degrees F (16 to 49 degrees C), fill the transmission so the fluid is in
Loosen T-handle on transmission dipstick approximately
one full turn after dipstick can be removed from check
and fill tube with slight resistance.
Hot Oil Check. Operate engine one minute at 1000 RPM, idle until
transmission temperature reaches 180 to 220 degrees F (82 to 104 degrees C).
With engine idling, transmission in neutral, and truck on level ground, check
transmission dipstick. If oil level is within the HOT/RUN band the quantity of
oil in the transmission is safe for operation. If oil level is on or below bottom
line of HOT/RUN band, notify Unit Maintenance.
Crankcase. Check oil level with truck parked on level ground and the
engine off and cool. Do not overfill crankcase.
Engine Oil. OE/HDO 40 must be used in temperatures consistently
above 100 degrees F (38 degrees C).
Transmission Oil. OE/HDO 15W/40 must be used when temperatures
are consistently above 100 degrees F (38 degrees C).
2. SELF-RECOVERY WINCH (SRW), MATERIAL HANDLING
CRANE (MHC) AND LOAD HANDLING SYSTEM (LHS).
If the part does not purge clean lubricant, notify Unit
Purging of Lubricant. When using a grease gun, apply lubricant to the
fitting until clean lubricant squeezes out of the part being lubricated.
Lubricate Self-Recovery Winch (SRW) front guide horizontal shaft and
sheave by turning and sliding sheave along length of shaft while applying
grease with grease gun.
