Section Ill MAINTENANCE PROCEDURES
Service Intervals - Normal Conditions
For application of materials and service intervals, see Appendix E or appropriate instructions
for specific components.
Service Intervals - Unusual Conditions
Lubricate more often to compensate for unusual operation and extreme conditions. High or
low temperatures, prolonged periods of high-rate operation, continued operation in sand or
dust, or exposure to moisture may quickly destroy the protective qualities of the lubricant.
Lubrication intervals may be extended during inactive periods.
