Section IV. PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE CHECKS AND SERVICES (PMCS)
The best way to maintain the air compressor is to inspect on a regular basis so minor faults can be discovered
and corrected before they result in serious damage, failure, or injury. This section contains systematic instructions
for inspection, adjustment, and correction of the compressor components to avoid costly repairs or major
breakdowns. This is Preventive Maintenance Checks and Services.
All shortcomings will be reported on DA Form 2404, Equipment Inspection and Maintenance worksheet,
immediately after the PMCS and before taking corrective action. They will also be reported in the equipment log.
