PERFORM QUARTERLY LUBRICATION
draw an oil sample from the engine and torque converter
Refer to the lubrication charts, in Section III, and lubricate
and have it analyzed. Remove the caps from the valves,

CHECK EXHAUST SYSTEM
Check the exhaust manifold retaining nuts, exhaust flange
clamp and other connections for tightness. Check for proper
operation of the exhaust pipe rain cap.
CHECK THERMOSTATS AND SEALS
Check the thermostats and seals (preferably at the time the
cooling system is prepared for winter operation). Replace
the seals if necessary.
CHECK FAN HUB
If the fan bearing hub assembly is provided with a grease
fitting, use a hand grease gun and lubricate the bearings
with one shot of multi-purpose grease (see Section Ill) every
20,000 miles (approximately 700 hours}.
Every 4000 hours clean, inspect and repack the fan bearing
hub assembly with the above recommended grease.
At a major engine overhaul, remove and discard the bear-
ings in the fan hub assembly. Pack the hub assembly, using
