Personal injury or death can result from a fire.
Fuel leaked or spilled onto hot surfaces or electrical components can cause a fire.
Clean up all leaked or spilled fuel. Do not smoke while working on the fuel system.
Turn the disconnect switch OFF or disconnect the battery when changing fuel filters.
Do not fill fuel filters with fuel before installing them. Contaminated fuel will cause accelerated wear to fuel system parts.
- Fuel shutoff valve (1) is located on the left hand enclosure across from the ladder that leads to the cab. Close the fuel line by rotating the handle on the fuel shutoff valve until the valve handle makes a 90 degree angle with the fuel line.
- Secondary fuel filters (2) are mounted on the right rear corner of the engine. Remove the two fuel filters.
- Inspect the fuel filters for debris by cutting the fuel filters open.
Note: The secondary fuel filters are cartridge type filters. The filters cannot be reused.
Note: Dispose of used filters and used fluids according to local regulations.
- Clean the filter mounting bases. Make sure that all of the old seals are removed.
- Lubricate the seals of the new filters with clean diesel fuel.
- Install the new filters by hand. Additionally tighten the filters by 3/4 of a turn after the seals contact the filter bases.
Every new filter has four rotation index marks. Each mark indicates 1/4 turn. Use these rotation index marks as a guide for proper tightening.
- Open fuel shutoff valve (1). The fuel line is open while the valve handle is pointed upward or while the valve handle is pointed downward.
- Prime the fuel system. Refer to Operation and Maintenance Manual, "Fuel System - Prime".
