The fuel oil may be drained from the fluid system by
opening the pump drain (A) and line drain (B). It is
recommended that fuel oil be left in the system until the
following day's operation.
Each line is equipped with a line fill plug (C) that may be
removed and fuel oil added to the lower line system as a
protection to the meter in case of an emergency.
When the fluid system is not going to be used for some
time, remove the suction line and cap the pump intake.
