2.2.6. Operation of Power Plant with Minor Leaks.
Equipment operation is allowable with minor leakage (Class I or II) of any fluid except fuel.
When operating with Class I or II leaks, fluid level must be checked more often than
required by the PMCS table. Parts without fluid will stop working and/or cause equipment
a. Consider the equipment's capacity for the fluid that is leaking If the capacity is small, the fluid
level may soon become too low for continued operation. If in doubt, notify your supervisor.
b. Check the fluid level more often than required in the PMCS table. Add fluid as needed.
2.2.7. Corrosion Prevention and Control (CPC). CPC of Army material is of continuing concern. It is
important that any corrosion problems with the equipment 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 368, Product Quality Deficiency Report. Use of
key words 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, (Army), AFR
400-54, (Air Force).
2.2.8. Order in Which PMCS Will be Done. Figure 2-2 shows the order in which you are to perform your
PMCS. The figure shows a typical configuration having one generator set. Keep in mind that the power plant
consists of two generator sets and PMCS must be performed on each generator set. The number callouts on
figure 2-2 correspond to the numbers in the Item No. column of table 2-2, for "BEFORE" PMCS.
