SERVICING MAIN ENGINE AIR CLEANER
The main engine air cleaner is the only source of air to the main engine. It is the crews responsibility to ensure
that it is properly maintained to avoid damaging the main engine. Maintenance instructions are given for the air in-
take screens, air cleaner dust cover and the filter element.
AIR CLEANER RESTRICTION GAUGE
A restriction gauge (1) is located above each air cleaner. It indicates green when the air cleaner is working proper-
ly. As the filter becomes restricted, a red sleeve (2) begins to drop into view. The air flow restriction is maximum
when the red sleeve fully covers the green and locks into place. When this happens, the filter element must be
cleaned or replaced (in accordance with this work package). To reset the gauge, press the top of the gauge (1).
SERVICING AIR INTAKE SCREENS
Clean away any dirt, mud or leaves restricting the free flow of air through the air intake screens (3 and 4).
