4-10. PMCS TABLE EXPLANATION.
Do the SEMIANNUAL PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE (Table 4-1) once every six months.
b. Always do the Preventive Maintenance in the same order until it gets to be a habit. Once practiced, it will be
easy to spot anything wrong in a hurry.
If anything looks wrong and is not fixed, write a DA Form 2404.
d. When doing Preventive Maintenance, take along the tools and supplies needed to make all the checks,
including a clean cloth or two.
The following is a breakdown of the PMCS table:
"Item No." column. Checks and services are numbered in a logical order for moving around the flatrack.
The item number column is used as a source of items numbers for the TM Number Column on DA Form
2404, Equipment Inspection and Maintenance Worksheet, for recording results of the PMCS.
"Interval" column. The column identifies when the PMCS should be performed.
"Item To Check/Service" column. This column identifies the item to be checked/serviced.
"Procedure" column. This column contains all the information required to do the check/inspection.
"Not Mission Capable If:" column. This column contains a brief statement of the condition (e.g.,
malfunction, shortage) that would cause the flatrack to be less than fully ready to perform its assigned
