Operate purge pump (8) until back pressure is felt. Three or four strokes should do it. This will help get air
out of lines. Do not press preheat button.
Do not hold START button (9) in for longer than 15 seconds. If engine cranks but
fails to start, turn off MASTER switch and wait 3 to 5 minutes. Repeat starting
procedures. If it does not start after third try, troubleshoot (see tab. 3-1).
Depress accelerator pedal (10) to its fullest travel. Push and hold START button until engine runs.
Release button and pedal.
If master warning light does not go out in 20 seconds after engine starts, stop
engine and notify unit maintenance.
If battery charge is too low to start engine, start APU (see para. 2-13e) and charge
batteries for 20 minutes or slave start vehicle (see para. 2-10d).
Adjust hand throttle (11) for 1000 to 1200 rpm and let engine warm up for 3 minutes. After 3 minutes return
engine to low idle (675 to 725 rpm) or depress accelerator pedal keeping engine speed at 1000 to 1200 rpm
until engine runs smoothly.
