M113A3 FOV engine oil AOAP check.

Mechanics, take note of a change to the engine and transmission oil semiannual check in WP 0155 00-28 of TM 9-2350-277-20-2. The first NOTE says to avoid sampling new or overhauled engines until the second oil change. Change this NOTE to read, "Follow hardtime oil change interval (semiannually or every 1,500 miles, whichever comes first) for first two oil changes. Continue to submit AOAP samples to monitor oil condition for wear-metals, fuel and water contamination during this initial break-in period, IAW 750-1." The DA Form 2026, Oil Analysis Request, submitted with the sample should be outlined in RED marker indicating that it is a special AOAP sample. Indicate that the sample is from a "Break-in Engine" in the Remarks block of the form. AOAP analysis complies with the Army Warranty Program, so when an analysis shows problems, make sure you contact the warranty coordinator before performing the recommended maintenance.
