STARTING THE ENGINE CONTINUED
6. Crank engine as follows:
a. NORMAL START: Turn ignition switch to IGNITION and press starter switch. Release starter switch as
soon as engine starts.
The ether injector should be used only for starting the engine. Misuse of the ether injector
while the engine is running can result in serious damage to the engine.
The ether injector should be used only when the air temperature is below freezing.
To avoid possible damage to the starter release the starter button the instant the engine
starts. Never press the button while the engine is running.
If the engine does not start with a maximum of two ether injections, determine and correct
the cause before attempting again to start the engine.
Crank engine for 30 seconds at a time. If engine does not start, allow starter to cool two or
three minutes before cranking again.
Failure to follow these cautions may result in damage to the engine.
b. COLD WEATHER START USING ETHER INJECTOR: Depress accelerator pedal to full speed position.
While cranking engine simultaneously press ether injector button 2 to 3 seconds. If engine does not start
press ether injector button an additional 1 time (2 to 3 seconds) maximum.
7. If engine will not start or runs roughly, it may be due to one of these causes:
a. Air may be in fuel system. Notify Field Maintenance.
b. Ether injector is not functioning properly. Notify Field Maintenance.
Fuel filters may be clogged. Notify Field Maintenance.
8. Immediately after engine starts, release accelerator pedal.
Check the engine oil pressure gauge and if no oil pressure is indicated, immediately stop
the engine. Failure to follow this caution may result in damage to the engine.
9. Check all instruments and controls for proper operation (WP 0004).
