Check the batteries in accordance with TM 9-6140-200-15 and install the filler caps and battery box cover.
Warning: Do not allow the electrolyte to come in contact with the body, clothing, or
equipment. The electrolyte solution contains sulphuric acid which can cause
serious injury to personnel and damage to clothing and equipment.
h. When the jaw crusher is received with wet batteries, service (TM 5-3820-205-10/2) and test (par. 80). For
additional information on servicing, testing and battery maintenance, refer to TM 9-6140-200-15.
When the jaw crusher is received in cold weather, fill the engine cooling system with antifreeze solution to
protect the system to the lowest expected temperature. Refer to table 1 and TM 9-207 as a guide.

Arctic antifreeze preferred
Maximum protection is obtained at 60 percent by volume (4.8 pt. of ethylene glycol per gal of solution).
Military Specification MIL-C 11755 Arctic type, nonvolatile antifreeze compound is intended for use in the cooling system of liquid-cooled internal
combustion engines. It is used for protection against freezing primarily in Arctic regions where the ambient temperature remains for extended periods of time
close to -40° or below, to as low as -90°F.
Use an accurate hydrometer. To test hydrometer, use 1 part ethylene glycol antifreeze to 2 parts water. This should produce a hydrometer reading of
Note. Fasten a tag near the radiator filler cap indicating the type of antifreeze.
On new equipment flush the fuel lines and fuel filters as follows:
Disconnect fuel line from the filter at the fuel pump as illustrated on figure 5.
Drain the fuel filter (TM 5-3820-205-10/2).
Flush fuel lines and filters by operating the primer pump (TM 5-3820-205-10/2).
Connect fuel line at fuel pump.
Disconnect fuel lines from injectors.
Operate starter for 30 seconds (TM 5-3820-205-10/2).'
Connect fuel lines to injectors.
Disconnect the fuel return line, remove the elbow and install a plug in the pipe tee.
Start engine (TM 5-3820-205-10/2).
(10) Stop the engine, remove the plug from the tee, install the elbow, and connect the return fuel line.
Installation of Separately Packed Components
Batteries and Cables.
Unpack and depreserve the battery cables (par. 7). Install the battery cables on the batteries as instructed
on figure 6 and steps (2) and (3) below.
Install clamps on battery terminals. Tighten bushing nut to friction-fit between lug and battery terminal.
Tighten locknut and push handle down until parallel with clamp.
Fire Extinguisher. Remove the fire extinguisher and mounting bracket from the tool-
