FUEL FILTER ASSEMBLY MAINTENANCE - CONTINUED
FUEL FILTER ASSEMBLY INSTALLATION - CONTINUED
The fuel injection pump needs fuel for lubrication. The precision parts of the pump are easily damaged.
For this reason, engine must NOT be started until lubrication pump is full of fuel that is free of air.
The system must be primed any time any part of system is drained of fuel. For example, when fuel sys-
tem is changed or a fuel line is removed or when inspection cover on fuel injection pump is removed for
service or repair, fuel system must be primed (air removed).
Start engine and check for leaks (TM 5-3895-379-10).
