Section 0 - Complete Engine - Group 00
NOTE: Refer to the OEM specifications for the radiator and
Installation of the radiator cap at this point is critical to
proper purging of air trapped in the cooling system.
Improper purging of air from the cooling system can
result in engine damage from overheating.
Perform a final inspection to make sure that all hoses,
wires, linkages, and components have been properly in-
stalled and tightened.
Make sure that the fuel is shut off by removing the wire from
the fuel solenoid or by verifying that the mechanical fuel
shutoff is in the OFF position. This is necessary to prevent
the engine from starting during the lubricating oil rifle pres-
sure charging operation.
Do not engage the starting motor for more than 30
seconds. Wait 2 minutes between starter engagements
to cool the starting motor.
Crank the engine until the lubricating oil pressure gauge
indicates a positive pressure.
