MAINTENANCE OF CARRIER
Section I. TOOLS AND EQUIPMENT
BASIC ISSUE ITEMS
Tools and equipment that you need to use when you drive or maintain your carrier
are listed in Appendix B. These items are issued with the earner, and they must be
turned in with the earner. Keep them on your carrier all the time. You cant take
proper care of the carrier without the basic issue items, so keep them all clean and in
good shape. Dont use the tools for jobs they are not designed to do. You wont get
the job done right, and you could break the tools.
EXPENDABLE/CONSUMABLE MAINTENANCE SUPPLIES
Supplies that you need to take care of your earner are listed in Appendix D. These
supplies are items that you normally will use up or wear out when you use them.
Maintenance supplies work for you. Try to get the most out of them.
Section II. LUBRICATION
SERVICE INTERVALS NORMAL CONDITIONS
For safer, more trouble-free operation, see to it that your carrier is service when it
needs it. For the proper lubricant and service intervals, see LO 9-2350-261-12.
SERVICE INTERVALS UNUSUAL CONDITIONS
Your carrier will often need extra service and care when you operate under unusual
conditions. High or low temperatures, long periods of hard use, continued use in
sand, water, mud, or snow, will breakdown the lubricant. Then you have to add or
change lubricant more often. But during periods when the earner isnt used, the
service intervals can be stretched out.
