These instructions are MANDATORY.
a. This appendix contains lubrication instructions for the Common Bridge Transporter's (CBT's) Load Handling System
(LHS) and the Bridge Adapter Pallet (BAP). For lubrication instructions for the Heavy Expanded Mobility Tactical
Truck (HEMTT), refer to LO 9-2320-279-12.
b. The LHS and the BAP must receive lubrication with approved lubricants at recommended intervals in order to be
mission ready at all times.
Intervals (on-condition or hard-time) and related man-hours are based on normal operation. The man-hour time
specified is the time needed to do all the services prescribed for a particular interval.
a. Hard Time. The LHS and the BAP are not enrolled in the Army Oil Analysis Program (AOAP). HARD-TIME
INTERVALS APPLY. Hard-time maintenance is scheduled maintenance conducted at predetermined fixed intervals
based on age, calendar, or usage (e.g., operating time). Change the hard-time interval if your lubricants are
contaminated or if you are operating under adverse environmental conditions. The intervals may be extended during
periods of low activity providing adequate preservation precautions have been taken. The HEMTT is enrolled in the
AOAP (refer to LO 9-2320-279-12).
b. On Condition. On-condition maintenance is scheduled maintenance performed based on the condition of the CBT as
determined by regularly scheduled evaluations. On-condition intervals shall be determined by the AOAP laboratory
and shall apply unless you are otherwise notified by your supervisor. Hard-time intervals will be applied to the HEMTT
AOAP (refer to LO 9-2320-279-12). For equipment under manufacturer's warranty, hard-time oil service intervals
shall be followed. Intervals shall be shortened if lubricants are known to be contaminated or if operation is under
adverse conditions (such as longer than usual operating hours, extended idling periods, extreme dust).
SPECIFIC LUBRICATION INSTRUCTIONS.
Keep all lubricants
in a closed
container and store
in a clean, dry place away from extreme heat.
Keep container covers
clean and do not allow dust, dirt, or other foreign material to mix with lubricants. Keep all lubrication equipment clean
and ready for use.
b. Maintain a record of lubrication performed and report any problems noted during lubrication. Refer to DA Pam 738-
750 for maintenance forms and procedures for recording and reporting any findings.
Keep all external parts not requiring lubrication free of lubricants. After lubrication, wipe off excess oil or grease to
prevent accumulation of foreign matter.
d. After parts are cleaned, rinse and dry them thoroughly. Apply a light grade of oil to all polished metal surfaces to prevent
