Section V. PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE CHECKS AND SERVICES (PMCS)
4-8. PMCS, GENERAL.
To ensure that the Generator Set is ready for operation at all
times, it must be inspected systematically so defects may be
discovered and corrected before they result in serious damage,
failure or safety hazard. The necessary preventive maintenance
checks and services that are to be performed by Organizational
personnel are listed and described in the following paragraphs.
Defects discovered during operation will be noted for future cor-
rection. Stop operation immediately if a deficiency is noted which
would damage the equipment or present a safety hazard. All
faults will be recorded together with the corrective actions taken
on the applicable form. Air Force users shall refer to the
applicable inspection manuals and work card sets in the TO
35C2-3-1-426 series for periodic requirements. Marine Corps
users should refer to current issue of TM 4700-15/1. On ASK
equipped generators, full or partial removal of ASK may be
necessary to perform PMCS.
4-9. Determining PMCS Intervals. Organizational
PMCS on this unit should be performed on a - per
hours of operation - basis. The running time meter
on the control panel should be used to determine the
Generator Set operating time.
4-10. PMCS for Units in Continuous Operation. For
PMCS performed on an operating time basis, per-
form PMCS as close as possible to the time intervals
indicated. For units in continuous operation, perform
PMCS before starting operation if continuous opera-
tion will extend service interval past that which is
4-11. (A. N, MC) Preventive Maintenance Checks and
