Re-­‐assemble the fuel filter element (refer to “Fuel Filter Element Assembly” diagram below.) Fuel Filter Element Removal Fuel Filter Element Assembly ANNOVI REVERBERI AXIAL CAM PUMP: Unit undergoes extensive testing at the time of manufacturing. Lifetime oil is installed in pump and pump is sealed. Pump oil will NOT have to be checked or changed. Pump under warranty by manufacturer. Refer to Warranty Policy for details. USAGE IN HIGH ALTITUDE REGIONS: In regions with high altitude, the standard carburetor produces overly dense combinations of fuel and air, which result in decreased engine performance and increased fuel consumption. To maintain high engine performance at high altitudes, install a high altitude carburetor main spray nozzle and re-­‐adjust the adjusting screw for idle speed. For usage in regions with an altitude of over 4,527ft (1380m), contact your dealer to replace the standard carburetor and make needed adjustments in advance. Even with a proper high altitude carburetor spray nozzle installed in the engine, the power output of the engine will drop about 3.5% with every 1000ft (305m) increase in altitude. If the standard carburetor jets are not replaced and adjusted for usage in high altitude, the increased altitude effect will be even more severe. NOTE: Usage of the water pump in regions with lower altitude than the high altitude carburetor spray nozzle is applicable, may result in decrease of engine performance. The engine may become overheated and over-­‐lean combination of fuel and air produced, may cause severe damage to the engine. 26 LIFAN Power USA 2205 Industrial Park Road Van Buren, AR 72956 866-­‐471-­‐7464 www.lifanpowerusa.com Troubleshooting IF THE ENGINE WILL NOT START: 1. Check to ensure switches are in the “ON” position. 2. Check engine oil level. The unit possesses a Low Oil Shutdown feature that will not allow your engine to start if the oil is below safe operating levels. This feature is installed to increase the life of your engine and prevent engine damage. If oil level is low, fill to the full mark on dipstick. Refer to the Pre-­‐
Operating Instructions: Engine Oil Check section for exact oil type and amounts. 3. Check the fuel level to insure adequate fuel. Add fuel if necessary. 4. Remove and inspect the spark plug for cleanliness and proper electrode gap. If needed, clean or replace the spark plug. Refer to Spark Plug Maintenance in the Maintenance section of the Owner’s Manual for proper procedure. 5. If the unit will still NOT start after performing the above checks, call our customer hotline at LIFAN Power USA Toll Free 1-­‐866-­‐471-­‐7464 or take the unit to an authorized Service Center. NOTE: Periodically on the initial start-­‐up or after the unit has been stored for a long period of time, the float for your “Low Oil Shutdown” system will stick to the bottom of the oil pan. Locate the two (2) wires to the Low Oil Sensor Diode (figure “Low Oil Sensor Diode” to the right) located on the side of the engine block. Unplug these wires and, only after ensuring the engine is full of oil, start the engine and allow to run until warm (normally 20 minutes, as this will heat the oil and release the float on the Low Oil Shutdown System). Then re-­‐plug the wires to the terminals on the Low Oil Shutdown Sending Unit. IF WATER IS LEAKING: •
