Gauges and Indicators
Your engine may not have the same gauges or all of the gauges that are described. For more information about the gauge package, see the OEM information. Gauges provide indications of engine performance. Ensure that the gauges are in good working order. Determine the normal operating range by observing the gauges over a period of time.

Noticeable changes in gauge readings indicate potential gauge or engine problems. Problems may also be indicated by gauge readings that change even if the readings are within specifications. Determine and correct the cause of any significant change in the readings. Consult your Perkins distributor for assistance.

Fill the Oil Pan
Remove the oil filler cap. Refer to this Operation and Maintenance Manual, “Fluid Recommendations” for more information on suitable oils. Fill the oil pan with the correct amount of new engine lubricating oil. Refer to this Operation and Maintenance Manual, “Refill Capacities” for more information on refill capacities.
Start the engine and operate the engine without load for approximately 2 minutes, in order to allow the oil to fill the oil filter. Check that the oil pressure is correct and check for oil leaks. Stop the engine and allow the oil to drain back to the oil pan for 10 minutes.

Maintenance Section Hoses and Clamps - Inspect/Replace
Check the fuel daily. Allow five minutes after the fuel tank has been filled before draining water and sediment from the fuel tank. Fill the fuel tank after operating the engine in order to drive out moist air. This will help prevent condensation. Do not fill the tank to the top. The fuel expands as the fuel gets warm. The tank may overflow.

Some fuel tanks use supply pipes that allow water and sediment to settle below the end of the fuel supply pipe. Some fuel tanks use supply lines that take fuel directly from the bottom of the tank. If the engine is equipped with this system, regular maintenance of the fuel system filter is important.
