2.2. Obtain the S·O·S Sample

------ WARNING! ------

Hot oil and hot components can cause personal injury. Do not allow hot oil or hot components to contact the skin.


Obtain the Sample and the Analysis

In addition to a good preventive maintenance program, AVSpare recommends using S·O·S oil analysis at regular scheduled intervals in order to monitor the condition of the final drives.

Each oil sample should be taken when the oil is warm and when the oil is well mixed in order to ensure that the sample is representative of the oil in the final drive.

Obtain the S·O·S Sample



Illustration 1g00994668

Remove the center plug in order to obtain a sample of the oil.


NOTICE

Always use a designated pump for oil sampling, and use a separate designated pump for coolant sampling. Using the same pump for both types of samples may contaminate the samples that are being drawn. This contaminate may cause a false analysis and an incorrect interpretation that could lead to concerns by both dealers and customers.


Use a 1U-5718 Vacuum Pump or an equivalent pump. Insert the suction tube into the final drive and draw an oil sample from the final drive.

Clean the plug and install the plug.

The recommended interval for oil samples is every 500 service hours or every three months. The recommended oil change interval is every 2000 hours.

Refer to Special Publication, PEHP6001 for more information on obtaining a good oil sample. Consult your AVSpare dealer for complete information and assistance in establishing an S·O·S program for your machine.
