2-14. OPERATING PROCEDURES (Continued)
a. Starting Engine (continued).
(1) Pull PARKING BRAKE valve out
to keep tractor motionless
while engine is being started,
(2) Be sure gear shift lever is
in neutral (N) position.
Do not operate starter motor continuously for more than 20 seconds. If engine fails to start after 20
seconds, allow starter motor to cool for at least two minutes before attempting to start the engine again.
After engine starts, run it at low idle for two minutes to allow oil to flow to turbocharger. High speed
operation immediately after starting engine will damage turbocharger.
As key switch is rotated to START position, the WATER LEVEL and OIL PRESSURE warning lights and
warning bell will turn on until engine is running. LOW AIR warning light and buzzer will also turn on if air
pressure is below approximately 76 PSI.
(3) Insert key into key switch and turn fully clockwise to crank engine. When engine starts, release key switch.
