The Lubrication Chart shows lubrication points, items to be lubricated, required lubricants, and recommended intervals
for lubrication. Any special lubricating instructions for specific components are contained in NOTES (p. G-12).
Reference to the appropriate localized view is given after each lubrication entry.
d. Recommended intervals are based on normal conditions of operation; the intervals given represent the allocated hours
