It is recommended that all lubricating oil and oil filter be changed after the first 50 hours of operation
and/or after overhaul.
Thereafter and under normal operating conditions, it is recommended that all lubricating oil and oil
filter be changed after every 500 hours of operation.
The oil in the system must be changed whenever the oil shows traces of dirt or the affects of high
operating temperature evidence by discoloration or strong odor.

particles in the oil is evidence of failure of some part.
