Intervals. The designated interval (INTERVAL) (i.e., before, during, after, weekly, etc.) when each check
is to be performed shall be included. Procedures done first or most frequently (i.e., before checks and
services) shall appear prior to during and after checks and services. When more advantageous to the
user intervals shall be sub-grouped by crewmembers(s).
Item to be Checked or Serviced. The items listed (ITEM TO BE CHECKED OR SERVICED) shall be
identified in as few words as possible to clearly identify the item. Usually the common name (e.g. EFTC,
2-point link, clevis, etc.) will be enough.
Procedures. The procedure (PROCEDURE) by which each check is to be performed, as well as any
information required to accomplish each check or service, including lubrication, appropriate tolerances,
adjustment limits, and instrument gage readings shall be provided. Whenever replacement or repair is
recommended, the maintenance task shall be included or the applicable maintenance instruction work
package may be referenced.
The following work packages (WP 0007 00 through WP 0060 00) contain maintenance procedures that
are the responsibility of the specified technician, as authorized by the Maintenance Allocation Chart
(MAC), and the Source, Maintenance, and Recoverability (SMR) coded items that are identified in the
Repair Parts and Special Tools List (RPSTL).
Each of the mentioned work packages above identifies a maintenance function specified in the MAC. All
maintenance procedures required to complete a maintenance function are identified under This Task
Covers: in the order in which the work is most logically accomplished.
CORROSION PREVENTION AND CONTROL (CPC)
Corrosion Prevention and Control (CPC) of Army materiel is a continuing concern. It is important that any
corrosion problems with this item be reported so that the problem can be corrected and improvements
can be made to prevent the problem in future items.
While corrosion is typically associated with rusting of metals, it can also include deterioration of other
materials, such as rubber and plastic. Unusual cracking, softening, swelling, or breaking of these
materials may be a corrosion problem.
If a corrosion problem is identified, it can be reported using Standard Form SF 368, Product Quality
Deficiency Report. Use of keywords such as "corrosion, "rust," "deterioration," or "cracking" will ensure
that the information is identified as a CPC problem. The form should be submitted to the address
specified in DA PAM 738-750, Functional Users Manual for the Army Maintenance Management System
Equipment Not Ready/Available If. A brief statement of the condition (EQUIPMENT NOT
READY/AVAILABLE IF) (e.g., malfunction, shortage) that would cause the equipment to be less than fully
ready to perform its assigned mission shall be provided.
Recording Defects. All defects discovered during the inspection will be recorded using the applicable
specifics in DA Pamphlet 738-750.
