FILLING PRIMARY FUEL FILTER
Diesel fuel burns easily. Do not smoke or allow flames nearby. Disconnect batteries (page 2-424)
when working on fuel system. Failure to observe these precautions could cause serious injury or
death to personnel.
These steps are to be performed if engine has run out of fuel.
If fuel filters have been previously changed and filled, proceed to step 10.
Canister gasket and packing must be changed each time fuel canister is removed.
