FUEL FILTER MAINTENANCE (Contd)
Diesel fuel is flammable. Keep fuel away from open flames and
keep fire extinguisher within reach when working with fuel. Do not
work on fuel system while engine is hot. Fuel can be ignited by
contact with hot engine. Failure to comply may result in death or
injury to personnel.
The fuel filters on both engines are replaced the same way. This
procedure covers the replacement of one fuel filter.
Have container ready to catch fuel.
Remove fuel filter element (1) from filter base (2) by turning counterclockwise. Discard fuel filter
