2.2.3.2. Fuel filter

GENERAL INFORMATION

Filter washing by water


Prevention

Before the work beginning with the fuel filter wipe area round the filter and the filter; watch that dirt and extraneous particles did not get to a power supply system. Prepare suitable capacity in which fuel from the fuel filter will be merged, and put rags round the filter for collecting the leaked fuel. Watch that diesel fuel did not get on such elements, as the generator and a starter, hoses of system of cooling and engine fastening, and also on wires.


PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. Besides observance of precautionary measures for collecting the leaked fuel, specified above, connect a tube to the drain screw on the bottom party of the fuel filter. Place the second end of a tube in a jar.
2. Turn off the drain screw and wait, while pure fuel, without dirt and water, will follow from a tube (about 100 cm3 should be enough). Probably, you should shake pumping-up pump to merge fuel from the fuel filter.
3. Reliably twirl the drain screw and lift the receiver, clean containers and rags, having wiped the spilled fuel.
4. On termination of washing utilize the merged fuel. Check all mentioned connections on tightness after engine start.
