A White diesel engine is housed in the engine compartment at the rear of the
frame. The engine is used to provide crane mobility, drive the hydraulic
pump, and supply electrical power used for crane control circuits, acces-
sories, and charging the batteries. All controls for the engine are located in
the operator's cab.
ENGINE COLD START SYSTEM.
The engine cold start system is provided as an aid for starting the engine
during cold weather. The system consists of a pushbutton switch, a solenoid
valve, an ether container, and the necessary tubing. The COLD START
pushbutton switch is located on the left front console in the cab. The
solenoid valve and ether container are mounted inside the engine compart-
ment. The cold start is energized only when the ignition switch is in the
START position and the COLD START button is pushed.
A single 31 gallon (117 liter) capacity fuel tank is mounted on the left side of
the frame between the axles. The filler cap is Iocated on top of the tank and is
accessible from ground level.
The drive train consists of a transmission, and two drive shafts.
The transmission is a powershift three speed forward and reverse trans-
mission. The transmission is mounted on the engine and controlled by two
shift levers to the right of the seat and the two-four wheel drive lever to the
left of the seat.
One drive shaft connects the transmission to the front axle and a second
connects it to the rear axle. The tow-drive lever to the left of the seat
disconnects the transmission drive to the axles,
To allow maximum maneuverability, both front and rear axles are steer axles
with hydraulic disc brakes at all four wheels. The 4 x 4 drive crane is
equipped with Rockwell drive/steer axles both front and rear. Each drive
