Prolonged contact with lubricating oil, MIL-L-2105, may cause a skin rash. Skin and clothing that come
in contact with lubricating oil should be thoroughly washed immediately. Saturated clothing should be
removed immediately. Areas in which lubricating oil is used should be well ventilated to keep fumes to
Oil is very slippery. Immediately wipe up any spills. Failure to follow this warning many cause injury.
Drain the crankcase with the oil warm, not HOT, to allow for draining of waste particles that are suspended
in oil. As oil cools, suspended particles settle on the bottom of the crankcase or oil pan and cannot be
removed by draining the oil. Failure to follow this recommendation procedure can result in waste particles
being recirculated through the engine lubrication system with the new oil.
