STARTING ENGINE CONTINUED
Under no circumstances should the engine be allowed to idle for extended periods as this could
result in under lubrication; however, the engine should be operated gently for 3 to 5 minutes before
putting it under heavy load. Failure to follow this caution could result in damage to equipment.

respond to the throttle until all sensors have achieved required levels.
