• Keep fingers, hands, and clothing clear of rotating components.

• Shut off engine, wait for moving parts to stop, engage parking brake and remove key, before performing maintenance.

6. With the cap off the radiator, start the engine as stated in the Operating Instructions Section.

7. Operate engine until the engine thermostat opens and coolant is circulating through the radiator core. As air is purged from the engine block and the coolant level drops, add additional coolant to the radiator.

8. When the radiator is completely full and no additional coolant can be added, continue running and install the radiator cap. Make sure that the cap is completely seated by pressing down firmly while turning until the cap stops. Once the cap is installed, the engine may be stopped.
