every 1,000 hours and wash the steel mesh pad in fuel oil
and dry it with compressed air. This cleaning period maybe
reduced or lengthened according to the severity of service.
CLEAN COOLING SYSTEM
Never fill a hot engine with cold coolant. This
could damage the radiator and/or engine.
Clean the cooling system (engine and radiator) using a good
quality radiator cleaning compound in accordance with the
instructions on the container. After the cleaning operation,
rinse the cooling system thoroughly with fresh water; then
fill the system with soft water, adding a good grade of rust
inhibitor or high boiling point type antifreeze as specifiedin
the Engine Manufacturer's Manual. With the use of a
proper antifreeze or rust inhibitor, this interval may be
lengthened until this cleaning is done only in the spring or
fall. The length of this Interval will. however, depend upon
