PREPARATION FOR STORAGE OR SHIPMENT - CONTINUED
PREPARATION FOR RETURN TO SERVICE FROM LONG-TERM STORAGE - CONTINUED
On the first day of returning to operation, check entire engine several times for leaks and correct operation. The quality
of oil control components used in engines is such that, following engine storage, only an operational check at initial start
is necessary before operation. This operational check ensures correct pressures and temperatures are kept in lubrication,
cooling, and fuel systems, and leaks are detected. To be sure of a safe, uniform check at initial start, use this procedure:
Place emergency shutdown switch in OFF position (TM 5-3805-291-10) and crank engine until engine oil
pressure is present.
Place emergency shutdown switch in ON position (TM 5-3805-291-10), start engine, and allow it to run
for 10 minutes at low idle speed (TM 5-3805-291-10).
Operate engine for 15 minutes at half-load and three-quarter rated speed (TM 5-3805-291-10).
Operate engine for 30 minutes at rated load and speed (TM 5-3805-291-10).
Check frequently for leaks such as oil, coolant, and fuel during first few hours of operation. Repair any
leaks as soon as they are detected.
