Abstract : This thesis utilizes historical wearmetal data from the Ft. Ord Spectrometric Oil Analysis laboratory to propose wearmetal level and trend guidelines for equipment powered by the Continental LD/LDS/LDT 465/465-1 engine. The methodology proposed for determining trend guidelines requires data giving the parts-per-million (PPM) level of a given wearmetal at a known time since oil change. (Author)
