INSTRUMENTS AND SWITCHES
All instruments and switches with the excep-
tion of the hourmeter and foot operated horn
s w i t c h are conveniently located on instrument
panel at left front side of operator's compartment.
The hourmeter is mounted at the rear of the oper-
ator's compartment. The foot operated horn switch
is located at left side of front floorboard.
It is good practice to observe gauges frequently
while working the machine. Each gauge serves as
as important check point for operating conditions
of torque converter and transmission, and of the
engine and accessories. Do not operate machine if
gauges are not functioning properly.
