Be sure that when electrical connection is made, air is exhausted from the solenoid and the plunger retracts.
Be sure that when 12-Vdc supply is removed, the plunger extends. Replace whole assembly if plunger fails.
See REPLACEMENT following.
Reconnect electrical supply to place solenoid in engine run position, cylinder retracted.
Install arm (2) and aline it with the plunger ensuring it rests against the plunger. Tighten screw (1) firmly.
Disconnect electrical supply, and check all fuel injectors are in the no-fuel position (injector control rack fully
Adjust arm (2) as required. The Injector racks must be fully withdrawn and checked to go to that position
whenever the engine ignition is set to OFF.
Foot Throttle Chamber Adjustment
Engine must be shutdown.
Exhaust valve clearance, injector timing, mechanical governor and injector control racks must be set before
adjusting the throttle.
Ensure air tanks are pressurized. If no air,
