Section I. OPERATING PROCEDURES
2-1. Controls and Instruments
a. General. This paragraph provides information
about the various controls and instruments for
proper operation of the generator sets.
b. Fuel Selector Valve. The fuel selector valve
(fig. 2-1) is a four-position, rotary-type valve that
is used to turn the fuel supply off, or to select
between an external fuel supply and the on-set
tank. It is located in front of the fuel tank on the
right side of the generator set.
c. Engine Off-Run Switch. The engine off-run
switch (fig. 2-2), a two position, toggle-type switch,
is used to stop the engine when the switch has
been positioned in the OFF position. The engine
can be started after the switch has been posi-
tioned in the RUN position.
d. Choke Lever. The choke lever (fig. 2-2), a
double-armed lever, is secured to the choke shaft
at the front of the carburetor. It is normally kept
in the OPEN position. To choke the engine, rotate
the lever in a counterclockwise direction.
