Removal of a sediment from the fuel filter of the diesel engine

Before the beginning of performance of any procedures of service of the fuel filter carefully wipe a surface round a place of its landing for the purpose of prevention of risk of hit of a dirt in a power supply system path. For gathering of spilt fuel enclose under the filter rags, or establish suitable drain capacity.

Do not suppose hit of diesel fuel on surfaces of the generator, a starter, hoses of system of cooling, a support of the engine and electroconducting plaits!

The fuel filter is established in at the left on a back partition of an impellent compartment, is direct behind the assembly block of safety locks.


  1. Pull on the drain gate in the bottom part of the case of the filter a piece of a hose of the suitable size, — the second end of a hose lower pure capacity with transparent walls.
  1. Ослабьте the gate also allow fuel to flow down in the prepared capacity. Do not close the gate until pure fuel will not start to follow from a hose, — it is usually enough to merge about 100 ml.

    For the purpose of maintenance of more free вытекания fuel ослабьте the screw of prorolling screwed in the top part of a cover of the filter.

  1. Accurately tighten the gate, remove from it a hose and clean drain capacity. Pure rags collect traces of the spilt fuel. In case of need accurately tighten the top screw of a cover.
