No adjustments are necessary but engine performance will decrease as altitude is increased.
Avoid towing the unit through mud.
Wash mud off of unit and wipe clean with rags or towels.
Prevent rain or moisture from coming in contact with electrical or fuel systems.
2-13. EMERGENCY PROCEDURES.
REDUCTION IN POWER:
Because the lube unit is diesel-powered and not electric-powered, it is not
susceptible to electrical brownouts or blackouts. On the other hand, if there is
mechanical failure, such as the diesel engine failing, you may still be able to
dispense some lubricants, see "Partial Equipment Failure" below.
PARTIAL EQUIPMENT FAILURE (See Figure 2-36.)
In the event of engine or air compressor failure, lubricants can still be dispensed to
some degree. The air-receiver tank (1), which is mounted below the engine (2) and
air compressor (3), stores air generated by the air compressor. When the air
compressor stops operating, air is still in the tank and will remain there until
drained or used up. Once air in the air-receiver tank (1) is exhausted, you can no
longer complete your mission until maintenance has repaired the unit.
Look at the control panel (4) and find the air pressure gauge (5). Determine how much air is stored in the
air-receiver tank (1).
Begin dispensing lubricant; continue to dispense until finished or until air in the airreceiver tank (1) is
