Stopping the engine immediately after it has been
working under load can result in overheating and
accelerated wear of the engine components.
Follow the engine stopping procedure, outlined below,
to allow the engine to cool and to prevent excessive
temperatures in the turbocharger center housing which
causes oil coking problems.
1. Stop the machine. Refer to Machine Parking,
Machine Stopping in this section for the procedure
to stop the machine.
2. Operate the machine at low idle for five minutes.
This allows hot areas in the engine to cool
gradually, extending engine life.
3. Close cover (1) to move the engine start switch to
the OFF position and to stop the engine.
Leaving the Machine
1. Stop the engine following the procedure given in
Machine Parking, Engine Stopping in this section,
and install start switch cover locking pin (1).
2. Move disconnect switch (2) to the OFF position, if
the machine is equipped with the optional arctic
batteries. Refer to Machine Features, Main
Disconnect Switch in this section.
