SECTION II. LUBRICATION INSTRUCTIONS
3-2. GENERAL. This section contains a reproduction of the lubrication order and lubrication Instructions which are
supplemental to, and not covered in, the lubrication order. The lubrication order shown in Figure 3-2 is an exact
reproduction of the approved lubrication order. Army personnel should refer to DA PAM 310-3 to ensure the latest
edition of the lubrication order (LO) is being used.
To avoid accidental cranking or startup, which could cause injury to maintenance personnel,
place MAINTENANCE LOCKOUT switch in the MAINTENANCE position prior to servicing the

3-3. LUBRICATION INFORMATION.
General. Keep all lubricants In closed containers and store In a clean, dry place away from external heat Allow
no dust, dirt, or other foreign material to mix with the lubricants Keep all lubrication equipment clean and ready
Cleaning. Keep all external parts not requiring lubrication clean of lubricants. Before lubricating the
equipment, wipe all lubrication points free of dirt and grease. Clean all lubrication points after lubricating to
prevent accumulation of foreign matter.
Points of Lubrication. Service the lubrication points at proper Intervals as illustrated In Figure 3-2 and as
described in subparagraphs below.
Checking and Servicing Crankcase Oil Level. The engine oil level gage (see Figure 3-3) is used for reading
crankcase oil level only when the engine Is not running. The oil level sight gage on the right side of the oil pan
(see Figure 3-3) is used to read crankcase oil level whether the engine Is running or not.
Crankcase air pressure is greater than the atmosphere. When adding lube oil with the engine
running, wrap the oil spout with a rag so that the engine oil filler neck will be plugged when the
spout Is inserted. This will prevent oil from being blown out of the crankcase.
