OPERATION OF LPU FOR BRIDGE LAUNCH OR RETRIEVAL (Contd)
Ensure hydraulic supply hoses are positioned behind
retaining brackets on pallet A-frame and auxiliary reservoir,
or damage to equipment may result.
3. Connect pallet hydraulic supply hoses (2) and (3) to pallet hydraulic quick-
disconnect couplings (1) and (4), located on pallet A-frame adjacent to
auxiliary reservoir (5).
Never use starting fluid (ether) to assist starting LPU.
Failure to comply will result in damage to engine.
If the REB will be operated in expected temperatures below
+40F (4C), the pallet hydraulic oil must be changed to
OE/HDO-10 and below -15F (-26C) changed to OEA. For
warm-up procedures, refer to Launch or Retrieve in Extreme
4. Place speed control lever (6) to maximum START position; end of lever (6)
should point up.
Perform step 5 if starting a cold engine with air temperature
below +20F (-7C).
5. Place hydraulic pump bypass valve lever (7) to OPEN position.
