Check converter and shuttle for proper oil level and signs of leakage.
Check transmission for signs of leakage and proper level.
Check right angle drive for signs of leakage and oil level.
Check final drive for signs of leakage and oil level.
Check feed ram for proper oil seepage - upper packing and lower packing.
Make a visual inspection of all gauges to see that there is no broken glass or loose wires.
Make sure complete auger is properly lubricated (refer to lubrication section).

Always shift the Revers-O-Matic to neutral before starting the engine.
Select the speed range desired by shifting the transmission behind the shuttle box and then engage the
directional clutch (forward or reverse) in the Revers-O-Matic.
Engage forward and reverse clutches at idle speed only.
Slow motion before applying the opposite clutch.
Pay particular attention to the instrument panel.
The oil pressure gauge should read approximately 160 P.S.I. with the engine running above 1200 R.P.M. If
pressure varies more than 15 P.S.I. from the above, check per "IRREGULAR OIL PRESSURE." At engine
idle speeds, and/or when the hydraulic clutches are engaged, the pressure will momentarily drop but should
return to normal as soon as the engine is reved up.
If the oil temperature gauge which is the converter oil "Out" temperature rises above 250F, stop the vehicle
immediately. Shift Revers-O-Matic to neutral and run the engine at 1200 R.P.M. The temperature should
drop rapidly to the engine water temperature within 3 or 4 minutes. If the temperature does not drop,
trouble is indicated. The cause of trouble should be determined before further operation of the vehicle;
