GASOLINE ENGINE-AUTOMATIC CHOKE
Set parking brake and place transmission control in the
If engine hasn't run for several hours and is cold, press
the accelerator pedal once all the way to the floor for a
moment and then release it. This sets the automatic choke to
give the engine a "rich" fuel mixture for cold starting. If the
engine has been stopped for only a short time and is still
relatively warm, don't set the choke. Otherwise, you may
flood a warm engine with too much gasoline and actually
prevent it from starting. Just depress the accelerator pedal,
about one-fourth of its downward travel and keep it there while
starting the engine. Don't pump the accelerator pedal, you'll
only flood the engine. If this should happen, however, the
engine will usually start if the pedal is pushed and held all the
way to the floor while operating the starter.
Depress the clutch pedal and keep it depressed until
the engine is running.
After a cold engine starts to warm up and is running
smoothly, tap accelerator pedal sharply with your foot to
reduce fast idle speed.
GASOLINE ENGINE-MANUAL CHOKE
Set parking brake.
Place transmission control in the neutral position.
Depress accelerator once all the way to the floor and
hold. Pull choke control out full distance and release
accelerator. Do not use the choke when engine is
Depress clutch pedal and keep it depressed until the
engine is running.
Immediately after engine starts adjust choke control for
proper fast idle speed and mixture control. The
frequent use of the choke control dilutes the crankcase
oil. For this reason, we recommend a more frequent
complete oil change in winter, using new oil of good
Push the choke control all the way in as soon as the
engine warms up and operation permits.
LPG ENGINE COLD
Slowly open only the vapor valve on one fuel tank. It is
important that the vapor valve be opened slowly,
otherwise the excess flow valve at the tank or in the line
Approximately 50 seconds are required for the excess
flow valve to relieve itself.
Press primer control on dash two or three times. A
manual operated primer plunger is also provided on the
converter for priming the engine under the hood.
Push in clutch pedal and hold in until after engine is
Start Engine. If the engine fails to start or makes a
false start do not try starting again until the engine has
come to a complete stop.
As soon as engine starts, press accelerator pedal
slightly to pick up engine control. To press accelerator
before engine starts will make starting more difficult.
After the engine warms up to normal operating
temperature, slowly turn the liquid valve at tank on and
the vapor valve off.
LPG ENGINE WARM
Slowly open the liquid valve on one tank only.
Do not use the primer control.
Start Engine, in the same manner as described in
Items 4 and 5 of Cold Start Procedure.
ENGINE WARM UP
It is very important that any engine be warmed up
before applying load.
The warm-up period provides time for the lubricating oil
to establish a film between moving parts.
In colder areas where temperature is often below 0
deg. C (32 deg.F), the warm-up period for turbocharged
engine is especially important. The cold external oil lines
leading to the turbocharger will tend to slow oil flow until the
oil warms up.
Slow oil flow to the turbocharger reduces the oil
available for the bearing; therefore, before applying load or
speed above 1000 rpm to the engine make sure to:
WARM UP THE ENGINE FOR A MINIMUM OF FIVE
MINUTES AT OR BELOW 1000 RPM BEFORE APPLYING
