In areas where dust and sand storms are frequent, extra attention must be paid to lubrication and maintenance of the vehicle.    This  includes  checking  or  replacing  filters  and  cleaning  inside  the  engine  compartment  and  pump  body. Removal of gritty dust from components such as valves and control lever linkages and other moving parts is essential Unless removed, fine dust may cause excessive component wear. 2-20.  OPERATION AT HIGH ALTITUDES.
