hello I'm sorry Claude and I'll be

giving a block of instruction on

properly reading and filling out a 59 88

echo which is an equipment maintenance

and inspection worksheet 59 88 or used

to annotate faults and parts needed for

your vehicle 59 eighty eight's are

filled out during your PMC s process

which is conducted in the six segments

you have your before during and after

weekly monthly and annually when you

receive a 50 1988 on maintenance mondays

you'll be given two copies one for your

vehicle and one for your JCR moved on to

our vehicle you have your admin

information so you have your admin

number Jorgenson's is Bravo two one you

gotta have a model which is XM one two

five six just for the Stryker equipment

noun is light armored vehicle you can

have your current reading which is 15

thousand nine hundred eighty seven miles

your serial number which can be found

right in front of your engine bay hatch

you have your equipment number you clip

an n SN in your current reading which is

how many hours your vehicle has been

driven you then have your three

publication numbers which you can

reference for your vehicle you then have

your signature and date and time lines

which will be filled out by your NCOIC

after the mechanics have verified the 59

88 service data dictate or annotates the

annual service date requirements moving

on to faults and parts requested so you

have five segments here you have

notification text status notification

date default description and work order

so in the notifications section you have

your NIN's which are national item

identification numbers basically an

ascend number for your vehicle and parts

you have your text status but you'll see

you have some slashes right here the

three fault codes you would put here are

slash which indicates a fault that does

not prevent the equipment from being

operated X indicates a dead line fault

that prevents or interferes with the

safe operation of the equip

e indicates a safety deadline and there

also is something called a circle X

which the commander is the only person

that can authorize that text that is

moving on you have your notification

date which annotates the date it was

notified on that part or fault both

description gives a brief description on

faults or as you can see I've alert this

batch and gunnery when this vehicle was

dispatched you then have your work order

number for your fault descriptions you

have your PIR PRI which is priority and

you have three of those once you go from

to being immediate you have five and

twelve being routine request date which

always one the part was requested

quantity ordered unit of measure

quantity on hand and then the issue date

if the part was issued which in this

instance the battery storage and wire

harness branched I've not been issued

yet if you look down over here for the

antenna support sleeve magazine

cartridges retaining straps you have

their PRI for the priority which is a 5

which is in between yeah if the request

date clarity ordered you mean it's you

it's a measure Kearney on hand and as

you can see these part these two parts

were issued on May 22nd 2019 and they

got both what they requested for the

sleeve antenna support and the strap


move it on you have the other page of

your vehicle for 298 that's all the same

admin information and previous parts

ordered this is the main thing you would

have your dash 10 with you you would

then conduct your PMC s and go through

and I have four faults that I found

while pm csing so the first one I found

was a casing collector bag was missing

so you then will do is write down the

item number that's in the dash 10 you

will put the full date and the text

status slash meaning indicates a fault

that was not preventing the equipment

for being operated now this piece of

equipment is as simple as ordering it

vehicles can still be operated and then

you would have corrective action which

is what the mechanics will fill out once

they have gotten they replace the part

and then they will initially the next

fault I found was driver's hatch lock

does not engage hatch stays hatch

database does not function so that was

item number 25 and I put an e for safety

deadline because you do not want that

hatch to fall on the driver's head and

potentially injure or kill that soldier

you gotta have driver's seat does not

lock in place sure pin is broken I also

put any safety deadline on that tech

status because the driver needs a proper

working seat to be able to properly

drive that vehicle and the fourth and

last fault I found was hand-held fire

extinguishers we're all discharged and

that is also a safety deadline because

you need fire extinguishers obviously to

put out any fire that starts in the

vehicle another thing to keep in mind

for maintenance faults faults that could

be corrected on the spot do not need to

be annotated on your 59 88 that go ie

adding fluids or placing bulbs or

adjusting door hinges faults such as

cracked hoods or chipped paint that will

not impair operation also do not need to

be annotated and that concludes my block

of instructions on properly filling out

and reading 1898 iku
