11200.1. The type of PM inspection is determined and controlled as follows:
Type "A" (01) - At intervals of 40 working days. It is performed on each scheduled PM due date until a vehicle qualifies for a type "B" PM.
Type "B" (02) - PMs are based on the equipment manufacturer's recommendations/ specifications for milage/hours usage required to initiate a "B" (02) for fluid and filter change, major adjustments or scheduled maintenance as required. For example, a 5-ton dump truck could undergo three or four "A" (01) PMs before accumulating the required milage/hours for a "B" (02) PM.
Type "C" (03) - Annual safety inspection (ASI), as per manufacturer's recommendations/ specifications.
Deadline inspections are particularly critical to ensure equipment does not deteriorate. Deadline inspections are performed at each regularly scheduled PM. An 01 level PM is accomplished on all deadline CESE. The equipment is inspected to ensure the following:
All openings are covered and weathertight.
All machined surfaces are preserved.
All disassembled components are tagged, covered, and stored.
No cannibalization has taken place since the last inspection (controlled parts interchange is not approved as a normal procedure; however, the maintenance supervisor only may authorize it to meet operational commitments).
Parts removed from deadline equipment should be replaced with non-serviceable items, and the maintenance supervisor must ensure that replacement parts are ordered "Not Operationally Ready for Supply (NORS)." This should be done using a priority applicable to mission accomplishment.
All replacement parts, costs, and labor hours related to the interchange should be charged against the item of equipment on which the part failed. When the replacement parts are received 1-6 and installed, only the labor involved should be charged to the piece of equipment from which the interchange part was taken.
Whenever possible, deadline inspections should include cycling (checking components for proper operation). For example, if a truck is deadlined for an axle, you can still start the engine and ensure that it runs properly. When cycling is accomplished, make sure that all required preservation is accomplished. Equipment is considered deadlined when it does not perform as designed or when it is in need of parts that are not on hand.
Accident safety inspections "12" ERO are initiated on all CESE involved in a mishap, regardless of damage and is commonly used for estimates. This inspection ensures that a vehicle is in safe condition before being released for operation Any repairs and parts required must be charged against this Equipment Repair Order (ERO). No preventive maintenance should be performed. When preventive maintenance is required, the type "12" ERO should be closed and another ERO opened for the maintenance required.
A Vehicle/Construction Equipment Preventive Maintenance Record Card, NAVFAC 11240/6 (fig. 1-3) must be accurately maintained for each item of assigned equipment and attachments to assist the PM clerk in preparing an ERO. PM record cards are maintained by PM groups in a tickler file, and the following information is to be recorded from the completed preventive maintenance EROS:
Type of PM service performed
Oil change or filter change (indicated by O/C or F/C)
Fuel filter change (indicated by FF/C)
Hydraulic filter change (indicated by HF/C)
CESE with assigned attachments are identified on the PM record card by a colored tab to ensure attachments are given PM inspections with the assigned equipment, and each attachment and attachment code are listed on the back of the PM record card. The PMContinue Reading
