FUEL TANK (Gasoline Engine)
As fuel is consumed, air is drawn through the vent into the fuel tank. Under certain climatic conditions, with a quick drop in
temperature and the vehicle inoperative, moisture may accumulate in the fuel tank. Therefore, keep the fuel tank filled, as much as
practical, to avoid moisture accumulation.
FUEL TANK LPG
LPG chassis should be operated on one tank at a time. If both tanks are used simultaneously, the fuel will bleed into the tank
having the lowest pressure and temperature. When the fuel tank being used becomes exhausted of fuel, the operator will notice a
reduction in power. The operator will then stop the vehicle, close the liquid valve on the tank being used, and slowly open the liquid
valve on the opposite tank.
To prevent severe personal injury, property damage or fatality never light matches near any type fuel tank, because
the air within a radius of several feet is permeated with a highly explosive vapor. Keep the filler spout or nozzle in
contact with the metal of the tank to avoid the possibility of an electric spark igniting the fuel.
POWER STEERING PUMP BELT TENSION
For proper belt deflection refer to Fan and Accessory Belt Adjustment under Engine.
POWER STEERING PUMP FLUID
The fluid level in the reservoir must be maintained to the proper level on the dipstick type indicator attached to the filler cap.
POWER STEERING OIL RESERVOIR
FILTER (If Equipped)
Remove reservoir cover and filter element. Clean inside of reservoir with a lint-free cloth. Install new filter element and replace
cover. Refer to the lubrication instructions.
Front wheel shimmy, wandering and cupped tires are caused by an out-of-balance condition of one or both front tires. If the tires
are changed because of a flat tire or to equalize wear, it is advised that they be checked for balance before operating the truck.
