The terms ready/available and mission capable refer to the same status: equip-
ment is on hand and is able to perform its combat mission.
Leakage definitions for operator PMCS shall be classified as follows:
Class I: See page of fluid (as indicated by wetness or discolorization) not great
enough to form drops.
Class II: Leakage of fluid great enough to form drops but not enough to cause
drops to drip from the item being checked/inspected.
Class Ill: Leakage of fluid great enough to form drops that fall from the item being
Equipment operation is allowable with minor leakages (Class I or II). Of
course, you must consider the fluid capacity in the item/system being
checked/inspected. When in doubt, notify your supervisor.
When operating with Class I or Class II leaks, continue to check fluid levels
as required by PMCS.
Equipment damage could result if caution is not observed.
REPORTING DEFICIENCIES. If your equipment does not perform as required, and if you discover prob-
lems during PMCS that you are unable to correct, it must be reported. Refer to DA Pam 738-750 and report the
deficiency using the proper forms.
For generator sets in continuous operation, check and service only those items that
can be checked and serviced without disturbing operation. Perform a complete
PMCS when equipment can be shutdown. Deficiencies discovered during opera-
tion shall be noted for future correction. Stop the operation immediately if a deficien-
cy is noted which could damage the equipment. Report all deficiencies and correc-
tive actions on proper forms. Army, refer to DA Pamphlet 738-750. Air Force, refer
to applicable inspection manuals and work card sets in the TO 35C2-3-1-426 series
for periodic requirements and Table 2-2 for detailed procedures. Operator PMCS
apply to Navy users in this manual.
