Priming Lubricating System
Diesel engine must not be rotated when priming with oil, otherwise they are likely to start
running. Failure to follow these instructions may result in injury to personnel or damage to
Failure to prime engine will cause damage to engine components.
When assembling overhauled engine, it is necessary to thoroughly lubricate running parts with engine oil to assure
lubrication when engine is started. To make certain that complete initial lubrication is available, engine lubricating
system should be pressure primed or charged with oil using Oil Leak Detector SE-1632. New or overhauled
engines that have been in storage over an extended period should also be primed in a similar manner.
When priming procedure is used, make certain that oil level is correct before the engine is put into service.
