Completely lubricate the chassis and all ancillary equipment in accordance with Para 2-9 and
Engine extended storage.
Change oil and filter (Paras 3-2 & 3-6). Add preservative lubricating oil (Item 60, Appendix C),
Seal off turbocharger inlet and outlet connection with moisture resistant tape.
Transmission extended storage.
Drain oil (Para 8-3).
Add 2 quarts (1.9L) of VCI-329 (Item 96, Appendix C) or equivalent and then fill transmission to
operating level with transmission fluid. Add 1 teaspoon of Biobor JF (Item 24, Appendix C), (or
equivalent) as a fungus inhibitor to transmission oil.
Run the engine for approximately five minutes at 1,500 rpm with the transmission in neutral (N).
Drive the vehicle. Make sure the transmission shifts through all ranges.
Continue running the engine at 1,500 rpm with the transmission in neutral until normal operating
temperature is reached.
Do not allow transmission oil temperature to exceed 225 degrees F (107 degrees C) or damage to
transmission may result.
If normal operating temperature is less than 225 degrees F (107 degrees C), shift the transmission to
forward range and stall the converter. Do not exceed 225 degrees F (107 degrees C). Idle engine
for approximately five minutes with transmission in neutral (N).
Ensure transmission is cool before proceeding. Failure to comply may result in injury to personnel.
When transmission is cool enough to touch, seal all openings and the breather with moisture-proof
Coat all exposed, unpainted surfaces with preservative grease such as petrolatum (Item 63,
Appendix C), Class 2.
If additional storage time is required, repeat Steps (b) through (h) at yearly intervals; except, it is not
necessary to drain the transmission each year. Just add VCI-329 (Item 96, Appendix C), or
equivalent vapor corrosion inhibitor and Biobor JF (Item 24, Appendix C), (or equivalent) as a
Crane extended storage.
Coat all unpainted surfaces with Corrosion Preventative Compound (Item 36, Appendix C), or
Clean and touch up all paint defects to prevent rusting.
Ensure manual hand pump is fully retracted.
