COLD START SYSTEM
The starting fluid used in the cold start system contains ethyl ether and is
extremely flammable and toxic. Do not smoke and make sure you are in a
well-ventilated area away from heat, open flames, or sparks when installing,
maintaining, testing, or troubleshooting the cold start system.
Wear goggles and make sure openings are pointed away from you when
activating system with lines or fittings disconnected to avoid eye injury. If fluid
enters the eyes or fumes irritate the eyes, they should be flushed with large
quantities of clean water for 15 minutes. A physician should be contacted.
Starting fluid can be harmful or fatal if swallowed. If swallowed, DO NOT
INDUCE VOMITING. Call a physician immediately.
Contents of cylinder are under pressure. Store in a cool dry place. Do not
incinerate, puncture, or attempt to remove cores from cylinder.
Remove fluid cylinder (3, Figure 2-2-6), refer to Removal procedures, and weigh cylinder to determine
remaining fluid as follows:
21 oz cylinder:
Full - weighs 37 oz (1049 gr)
Empty - weighs 16 oz (454 gr)
Present weight minus empty weight = remaining weight. To convert to liquid volume, one oz of weight
= 39 ml of liquid (one gr = 1.4 ml). Example:
Present weight = 26 oz (733 gr)
Empty weight = 16 oz (454 gr)
Remaining weight = 10 oz (279 gr)
Liquid volume = 10 oz (279 gr) X 39 ml (1.4 ml) = 390 ml or cylinder approximately 1/2 full
Inspect all system tubing for damage and cleanliness (obstructions). Clean or replace as necessary.
Remove atomizer (13), refer to Removal procedures, and inspect for damage and cleanliness. Clean or
replace as necessary.
Inspect system electrical wiring for security and damaged connectors or insulation. Tighten or replace as
